For a decade, he unfortunately chose the name SquidGame for himself.
In mid-September this year, the latest highly successful Netflix special, the English title of South Korean production Squid Game, became available. “Hundreds of penniless gamers accept a special invitation to test their skills in games for children. An alluring prize – and mortal danger – awaits them,” the series description reads.
Unfortunately, not everyone can be happy with the huge success of the Squid Game TV series, the life of British Lydia Ellery has become hell precisely over the past month and a half. The moderately well-known medium video from video game broadcasts and presenter work, unfortunately, has been running under the aliases SquidGame or SquidGaming in Internet services for 11 years, and since the Netflix series became a sensation, identity has uprooted its business and its nerves.
According to his report, he initially received so many harassment messages on Instagram that he had to turn off notifications and then the service temporarily blocked his account due to fans trying to log in unauthorized. Plus, the name’s identity ruined his search engine optimization, Squid searched for the TV show appearance instead, and now he’s quit my job as a presenter because they didn’t want to hire him because of his nickname.
He finds it increasingly likely that he will have to get rid of the name he’s been using for a decade, simply trampling on the TV series.
