Twitch is the most popular video game streaming platform. It has provided self-employment opportunities to many pro gamers and entertainers alike. However, there’s a darker side to the platform where some toxic streamers ruin an otherwise healthy community with their fuckery.
Twitch has been cracking down on many popular streamers and rule breakers recently and has made an example out of them to show the rest of the community that they don’t tolerate their nonsense.
Let’s take a look at a few streamers that have been permanently banned from the platform.
This is probably the most deserved Twitch ban ever. This streamer was banned based off a very disturbing audio clip that was broadcast from his Twitch stream. He thought that his live stream was turned off, but it turns out his audio was still broadcasting.
From the audio clip that was recorded, we can assume that Joedaddy505 was verbally and physically assaulting his girlfriend or wife. Joedaddy505 was immediately banned from Twitch for life following the incident and he has even taken down all the videos from his YouTube account in attempts to wipe evidence of his existence from the internet.
If the allegations that are made on him based on the audio recording are proven to be true, we hope that this streamer gets punished by the law for domestic violence.
This Canadian streamer was known for his straight talk and filthy language before he was banned from Twitch. He was often accused of verbally abusing other users without any kind of provocation. There were even instances when many of the users left the chat rooms because of his toxic language.
SonOnOldschool was the center of the RuneScape Twitch drama before his ban. He often harassed his fellow Twitch mates and was also known for his drunken streams. He was permanently banned from Twitch because he proved to be too vulgar. He now streams on Hitbox.
Pink Sparkles made a dashing entry to Twitch as she pulled a lot of viewers within a very short amount of time. She came in as a League of Legends streamer, but there were various complaints from other Twitch users that she was fake.
Pink Sparkles soon became the most hated streamer on Twitch. She often cried during her streams and pretended to have fits of rage and breakdowns. She never really played League of Legends ;anyway most of the time she was seen AFK. However, one day she accidentally flashed her view bot software on screen and she was instantly banned from Twitch. Pretty high-tech l33t hacks bro, props for the hustle, but Twitch doesn’t play that shit.
Update: It appears Twitch has unbanned her after a brief period for reasons that have not been shared publicly.
Gross Gore is another popular streamer who was banned from Twitch. He was quite famous initially as he pulled more than 10,000 live viewers regularly. However, he was bullied out of the RuneScape community by SonOnOldschool and had to move on to stream League of Legends, where he found relatively low success.
He was able to engage only 300 odd viewers a day in League of Legends. He then started working hard and streamed more than six hours daily and became one of the largest streamers on Twitch.
Gross Gore was banned from Twitch following a couple of incidents. A few months before his ban, he was warned by Twitch for reading out the email address of a donor aloud during a stream.
He also received a similar warning for his altercations with a fellow streamer almost a year ago. Both of these incidents added to the reason for his perma-ban, but the main cause was his hour long rant about two gamer girls. He also made a remark that a fifteen year old girl slept with a Riot broadcaster.
After his ban, Gross Gore admitted that the allegations he made regarding the broadcaster was false. He also made a video about his Twitch ban hoping that it would help him to be reinstated, which didn’t happen.
The streamer also had a break down following this incident and was under police rehabilitation. However, he is fine now and he has received a contract to stream on Hitbox.
Twitch has really become a nice little soap opera with its own cast of characters recently. Thanks for the drama and entertainment, guys.
Sometimes an offender only gets a temporary ban for less egregious offenses such as “accidental” nudity, something LegendaryLea knows all too well.
