Pokimane confirmed her ban on Twitch through a Tweet on January 8 saying, “the fire nation attacked.” 

Following this, the streamer announced that she will be back on Monday morning with a 12-hour comeback stream. She says that she is going to discuss this issue with her viewers in this stream.

Furthermore, she elucidated a bit on her point of view regarding this entire situation. Pokimane says, “just to be clear, i’m not surprised and i don’t think this is unfair. imo, it was inevitable that publishers would take action, on me or someone else, during this react meta. ”  She is going to further discuss this issue on her Monday’s stream.

Streamers such as Sykkuno expressed their concerns about this arbitrary banned and compared it further with Mizkif. Mizkif was also binge-watching and streaming Master Chef during that period and did not face any regulatory action from the DMCA. Sykkuno exclaims, “I don’t want to be that dude, but Mizkif streamed Avatar too. Does that mean he gets banned? I’m snitching on him — but he streamed it to like 50,000 people.”

The ban was also quite shocking for the streamer Disguised Toast who later contemplated deleting their VODs and clips just to stay on the safe side.

While Pokimane might be the first streamer to get the strike from Twitch, this does not eliminate the possibility that many others might come into scrutiny during this new meta testing period of Twitch.
