Twitch seems to have been content to ban streamers for the past few days, without mercy for even the most popular.
had a legal settlement with Dr Disrespect. Twitch did not have any problem with imposing a three-day ban when chess streamer Hikaru Nagamura saw Doc play a game with kings. Twitch also handed down a similar ban just before to TheGrefg. He hosted Bruneger, suspended creator, and they discussed the validity of Twitch’s suspension.
According to Dexerto streamer Steven “Destiny,” Bonnell was permanently removed from the platform due to a violation of Twitch guidelines regarding “hateful behavior”. Twitch has previously banned and suspended Destiny for other offences. In 2020, he was banned from Twitch for encouraging violence during protests that followed the death of George Floyd.
Destiny was informed by YouTube that the ban would be permanent. He then took to YouTube and streamed for six hours. He discussed with viewers, near the end of his stream, the circumstances that led to his exile.
Twitch does not tell you why you were banned. The stream was deemed to have been violated. They then suggested three possible reasons: posting words or emotes in chat that support denigration based upon race, praising, or supporting hate crimes, and then the third, which would be a complete surprise if it’s the 3rd one. Finally, they mentioned advocating for the exclusion or exclusion of certain people due to their disability. It’s impossible to do that right? It isn’t a hate raid. I don’t believe that my community conducts hate raids. “I don’t believe this.”
He speculated later about the reasons for the ban and shared his thoughts with his chat. It could have been due to a discussion that he had around the inclusion transgender women into sport. Destiny stated that women born to male gender should not be allowed into women’s sport. This topic has been the subject of much discussion since Lia Thomas, a swimmer, has been described by CNN as “the face” of the debate about transgender women in sport.
