Aussie streamer, Deftonix, got banned for 30 days for having a meme question in his poll on his panel. The question was ‘are traps gay’?

There has been quite a bit of controversy around Twitch’s strict rules. Not only is the punishment for breaking these rules pretty harsh, but often times the punishment is handed out based on the administrator’s bias.

A Twitch moderator explained that they’ve received an unfathomable amount of complaints from the LGBT community stating they feel unsafe on Twitch. They allege that they’re purposely targeted and harassed. This has resulted in Twitch moderators banning anybody for simply saying the word “gay”, and, no, context does not matter.

In some cases, you don’t even need to say offensive things to get banned. If a word sounds similar to a word that might offend someone, that is enough to warrant a suspension. That was the case for Alinity, TF Blade, Pink Ward, as well as many others. But sometime’s you don’t even have to say it!

Aussie streamer banned for having “gay” in panel

Deftonix had never received a strike against his channel before. He had never said anything anything that could be considered hateful or offensive, but he did have poll in his panel which asked “are traps gay”. After reaching out to Twitch to see if this was some kind of error they implicitly stated no. And since they considered this a form of hate speech he received a 30 day suspension. Twitch also explained that due to the severity of the violation his next violation would result in a permanent ban.

The disgruntled Aussie streamer responded with a YouTube video after being Twitch banned for using the meme, see below.

Fortunately the 30 day suspension is over for Deftonix but any more slip-ups will result in the deletion of his account. That’s a bit harsh, right?

Perhaps this is way so many people are abandoning ship. The extreme nature of Twitch moderation has left many second guessing their dedication to the live-streaming service. Their biggest streamer, Ninja, left Twitch last week to stream exclusively at Mixer. Regardless, you might want to think twice before using a meme that might be offensive to some or you might be banned of Twitch.
