According to Ross, Twitch chose to indefinitely suspend him because of Kick. However, the situation is more nuanced than it appears.
“My Kick chat box was positioned in the top right corner. And dude, they hardly ever ban anyone for that sh*t. They banned me due to lack of chat moderation,” he revealed. “That’s absolutely ridiculous, considering that people’s Twitch chats are filled with slurs all the time.”
In the past, instances of unmoderated chats have led to streamers being banned. Interestingly enough, Twitch itself has faced criticism for the moderation on its own channels.
“I had a Kick chat overlay on my Twitch stream,” he added. “Obviously, they noticed that I was streaming on Kick, and slurs were being typed in the chat. So they decided, ‘screw it.’ They were just being petty.”
