Hololive has terminated the contract of their 3rd generation vtuber Uruha Rushia, following an extended break after a scandal.
In a press release, Cover Corporation said she was being terminated for “distributing false information”, though they didn’t explain what exactly that means.
“We were able to confirm that she engaged in acts that violated her contract by leaking information that she acquired from the company as well as communication over SNS (social media), both of which she has a responsibility to protect, and caused the company to suffer reputational damage, such as by publicizing falsehoods to various related parties”, the statement reads.
Now, the press statement paints a pretty grim image of some backdoor activities the performer behind Rushia might have engaged in, but without any actual confirmation it’s simply unclear what Cover Corporation actually says she did.
UPDATE: It appears she was leaking information to livestreamer Korekore in an attempt to clear her name.
This statement comes after a tumultuous couple of weeks, after it was rumored she was dating fellow Japanese streamer Mafumafu when a very familiar-sounding discord message showed up on her screen.
At the time, Cover Corporation seemed to throw their support behind Rushia, saying that they didn’t care about what the performers behind their Vtubers did with their dating lives.
It should be noted that the language used is very deliberate: Uruha Rushia was terminated, as opposed to graduated, a la Kiryu Coco.
Unlike Coco who parted on good terms and even got a graduation concert, the same is unlikely to be said for Rushia, who will more likely be treated similarly to 5th Gen Vtuber Mano Aloe .
