Avatar accounts are created by cowardly little fucktards that have no lives, no skill, no talent, and only have an ability to throw shit and cause drama. The main purpose of these accounts is to be used by trolls for mockery, harassment, and insults.
How An Avatar Account Gets Named
The name is created by taking the account name, or something very close to it, of the target of the trolls obsession, er, hatred, and suffixed with "Avatar". So if the target is "DramaLlama", then the Avatar channel name would be "DramaLlamaAvatar".
