Leafy has been permanently banned off Twitch with no prior community strikes for saying the n-word, and appeals will not be accepted.
Leafy was reacting to a video of a popular pro-communist Twitch streamer Hasan Piker when he got banned. During the VOD Piker called Leafy a racist and said he deserved to be banned. Leafy responded jokingly by saying “N*gga, please.”
Leafy has been completely deplatformed. Two of the biggest video sharing and live-streaming platforms, YouTube and Twitch TV, have both permanently banned him.
Calvin Lee Vail, better known as Leafy or LeafyIsHere, was permanently banned off YouTube. YouTube cited that the reason for his ban was due to continued violation of their harassment rules but gave no example. Leafy had no active strikes on his channel, and subsequently all of his Google accounts, including Gmail and AdSense were completely removed.

Twitch followed suit and has now permanently banned Leafy without so much as a warning. He had no prior violations or strikes on his Twitch account, as well.
According to our sources the ban is permanent and Leafy may not appeal the decision.

“The safety of our community is our top priority,” a spokesperson said in regards to the ban insinuating that he believes Leafy to be a threat to the community.
Leafy later confirmed that, according to Twitch, he’s been banned for engaging in hateful conduct a person or a group of people.
The ban came almost immediately after Leafy jokingly responded to a video where controversial pro-communist Twitch streamer known as Hasan Piker was campaigning against his ban off Twitch.

Leafy paused the video where Hasan call him a racist, adding, “n***a, please.” Shortly after the Twitch channel was taken down.
Twitch moderators previously admitted that they were watching Leafy very closely and “just waiting for him to slip up.” The former 24-year-old YouTube commentator had made enemies on Twitch after making content that was critical of one of their most beloved live streamers, Pokimane.
Banned the same day that Pokimane returns.
In the now deleted video, Leafy slammed Pokimane for lying to her “simp fan base” about having a boyfriend. Shortly after he uploaded the video, the hashtag #PokimaneBoyfriend started trending on Twitter and Pokimane was losing a lot of subscribers.
Imane “Pokimane” Anys took a month-long break after the video went viral claiming it was for personal reasons. She then returned to address the controversy with a YouTube apology.

Pokimane’s YouTube apology was analysed by a body language expert who believed that she was being sincere, but was still very upset about It’sAGundam’s video on her.
Leafy’s fans are outraged and are calling Twitch moderators hypocritical for banning Leafy.
Hasan Piker had previously expressed his very controversial take on 9/11 and did not receive a community guidelines strike for it.
Hasan Piker celebrated 9/11 and didn’t get banned.
A clip shows Hasan Piker, host of “The Breakdown,” during his Twitch livestream reacting to a video of Republican Rep. Dan Cranshaw talking to podcaster Joe Rogan about America’s military efforts in the Middle East.
Before mocking Dan Crenshaw’s disfigurement, he proceeded to state that Americans deserved to die on September 11, 2001.
Hasan Piker, pro-communist and anti-American Twitch streamer, celebrates the death of 3,000 Americans on 9/11. and called for Leafy Twitch ban.
“America deserved 9/11, dude, f– it. I’m saying it,” Mr. Piker said in the clip.
Almost 3,000 people lost their lives that day and Hasan Piker has often celebrated it and, on one occasion, has even said that he hopes it happens again.
People are arguing that Hasan Piker, who has never even received a strike on his channel, had clearly violated the same rule that Leafy, himself, had been banned for: engaging in hateful conduct a person or a group of people.
Now that Leafy has been permanently removed from Twitch and YouTube he’s become a target on Twitter as well. Ethan Klein, H3H3Productions and H3H3 Podcast host, has been campaigning to get Leafy permanently banned off Twitter.
Ethan Klein has often shared clips and videos of Leafy while levying dangerous allegations against and attempting to paint him as a “alt-right terrorist.”
Leafy is still active on Twitter where he has 490,000 followers. Strangely, despite having 4 times the following, Ethan Klein’s tweets have similar engagement.
Now that Leafy has been permanently deplatformed and banned from Twitch and YouTube you’re going to have to follow him on StoryFire if you want to watch his content. Alternatively you can directly support him by buying some of his merch at AlwaysLucky.
