Last month a very popular streamer got banned after shooting a gun on a live stream. Today something similar has happened. Popular Twitch Streamer Kacey “Kaceytron” Caviness went above the limits and wrote something very hateful on Twitch. The Streamer was talking on Rajj Patel’s stream, where she was asked if she would kiss someone who had the coronavirus disease.
The Streamer replied saying she would rather spread it so poor and old people could die. “We would leave quarantine, and we would try to spread it as much as possible because the world would be a better place without old and poor people.”
The question is surely something else, and her answer is emphatically stupid. Coronavirus has killed thousands of people around the globe, and 500 alone died in Italy yesterday. These sort of remarks in such a sad situation is unacceptable. Twitch responded immediately like they always do and banned her for an indefinite time. She was banned for “engaging in hateful conduct and threats of voilence against a person or group of people”.
After the suspension, she tweeted saying “I don’t condone hatred towards any person and it was a poor reflection of my character. I’m just trying to take this all in right now. I ask that my audience please remain calm and rational.
Lastly, Twitch bans are very specific. Temporary suspensions are up to 30 days and indefinite suspension means whenever Twitch wants to give you another chance. Streamers can appeal this decision and try their luck if it can be overturned, however, most of the time, it is rejected.
