“Thought There Would Be a Warning First”, Leafy on Twitch Ban

Leafy was recently banned permanently from Youtube. Following this ban, Leafy joined Twitch for streaming. In a recent development, Leafy has been banned from Twitch as well. According to some sources, this ban could be permanent. Leafy had started streaming on Twitch just a month back. Leafy’s channel cannot be found through a search on Twitch anymore. He tweeted this about the situation :

Leafy’s Roller Coaster Youtube Career

Calvin Lee Vail, better known as Leafy or Leafyishere is a former American YouTuber who made his YouTube appearance in 2011. He achieved fame for picking on his fellow Youtube creators and gained 4.9 million followers on Youtube. However, he stopped uploading in December 2017, which was an enormous shock for his huge fan base.

Leafy made a return to Youtube in 2020 and sent the internet into a frenzy.  This didn’t pan out to be the ideal comeback that Leafy must have expected. He targeted Pokimane, a famous Twitch streamer and YouTuber, for her appearance and content. He also got caught up in a conflict with H3H3 following his return. All of these conflicts might be the reasons behind his YouTube ban.

Did he continue his controversial behavior on Twitch?

A lot of viewers on Twitch felt that Leafy made controversial statements. He tweeted about Pokimane and viewers felt that he was being aggressive in his content. These actions might have led to a violation of community guidelines.

Twitch suspended Leafy for his Actions

Twitch has shadow-banned its controversial streamers before. The platform has issued the following statement with regard to Leafy’s case:

“The safety of our community is our top priority, and we reserve the right to suspend any account for conduct that violates our rules, or that we determine to be inappropriate, harmful, or puts our community at risk.”

The internet has reacted in very different ways to this event. Some fans are disappointed by the intolerance for the so-called edgy or dark humor of content creators. However, a lot of people are also happy about the removal of controversial content from the platform and have supported this action by Twitch.

Certain questions over the permanency of this ban still remain unanswered.
