Less than a week after her last ban, Twitch streamer Indiefoxx has been banned from the platform again. This is the sixth time she has been banned from Twitch this year.
The American streamer is no stranger to controversy as a high profile streamer. Jenelle ‘Indiefoxx’ Dagres was previously banned for breaching Twitch’s sexually suggestive content guidelines.
Along with other popular streamer Amouranth, Indiefoxx took part in streams during which she would perform yoga stretches while simulating ear licking ASMR. After serving a short three-day suspension, Indiefoxx seemingly returned to the content, unperturbed by the suspension.
For now, it’s unclear what specifically caused this subsequent ban. It’s also unclear as to whether this ban will be another short one or last permanently.
With six bans over her head this year alone, it has fans wondering why she’s consistently allowed back on the platform. Indiefoxx has never been banned for longer than three days.
How has the community responded?
Last week, prominent voice on Twitch, Felix ‘xQcOW’ Lyngel gave his perspective on Amouranth and Indiefoxx returning to streaming.
“After I repeated an offence two times, I thought I was gonna get [permanently banned].
“I had the word ‘perma’ over my head for months for something I did eight months ago.
“And after five times [they] get a three day [ban]? That makes no f*cking sense at all.
“I’m so confused. How do you not get mad as a Twitch partner seeing this?”
Fellow streamer Alinity also chipped in on the situation, questioning why the Twitch Terms of Service exist if streamers are regularly shown special treatment when breached.
“So is Twitch gonna do something about repeat offenders?” she says. “Or is it fair game for everyone to start stretching the TOS as thin as they can?”
According to Dexerto, most Twitch streamers are hit with a permanent ban from the platform after they receive a third strike. Apparently, Indiefoxx’s ban doesn’t seem to be permanent this time around and will retain her partnership status when she does return [via Dexerto].
So far, Twitch has refrained from publishing an official response on the recent bans.
