Twitch hits Disguised Toast with month-long ban
Dimapur, Jan. 11 (EMN): Just days after Twitch streamer Pokimane got hit with a 48-hour ban, fellow streamer and OfflineTV member Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang also got banned from the platform today.
Disguised Toast was hit with a ban mid-stream while watching an episode of the 2006 anime Death Note. Interestingly, Pokimane got banned for live streaming the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender on her channel, which Disguised Toast, just weeks earlier, had already watched live on his channel. However, he appeared to have escaped any punishment from Twitch for his antics until now.
The streamer took to Twitter to announce the ban where he joked that Twitch couldn’t wait 20 more minutes. The streamer was watching the last episode when he was hit with a ban mid-stream.
they really couldn't have waited 20 more minutes huh— Toast (@DisguisedToast) January 11, 2022
Twitch has been handing out bans to its streamers left, right and centre lately for watching copyrighted material on its platform and it was only a matter of time before Disguised Toast met the same fate as his peers.
Surprisingly, the most puzzling thing about his ban is the length of the punishment. As you may recall, Pokimane was given 48-hours off Twitch after getting caught live streaming the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender on her channel.
However, Disguised Toast got a month-long suspension, which is quite unusual.
Needless to say, several high-profile streamers including Hasan “HasanAbi” Piker, Ludwig “Ludwig” Ahgren, Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter and Zack “Asmongold” took to Twitter to weigh in on the situation.
