Twitch is a popular streaming platform for gamers, but recently a streamer known as JustKeth was banned from the site for “sexual content”. The reason? She showed her feet during a live stream. While Twitch’s community guidelines do not allow users to offer or solicit any sexual content in exchange for money or items of value, many feel that this ban was an unfair punishment. Let’s take a deeper look at what happened and why the community has been so outraged by this incident.
Banned for showing feet?
JustKeth was on a live stream when she decided to show off her feet, an action that many felt was harmless and unsurprising given the context of the live stream. However, Twitch disagreed and issued the three-day ban, citing her “offering sexual content” as the reason behind it.
This action has caused confusion and frustration among the streaming community; many feel that it wasn’t appropriate to issue such a harsh punishment over something seemingly minor.
The ban has caused severe disruption among JustKeth’s fanbase, who are now unable to watch her streams until after it expires in three days’ time.
This is especially disheartening considering how dedicated her fans are—they have been consistently supporting her through donations and other forms of engagement since she first started streaming on Twitch back in 2018.
As if this wasn’t bad enough, JustKeth revealed that she had been trying to appeal the decision but had not received any response from Twitch yet—which only added fuel to the fire of frustration in her fan base.
The Community Responds
When news of JustKeth’s story broke out on social media, many people took to different platforms to express their outrage over what they felt was an unfair decision made by Twitch moderators.
Many asked why someone should be punished for showing their feet when there is much worse behavior being seen on many other streams without any repercussions whatsoever—a valid point that further highlighted just how unjust this ban was perceived by those within the streaming community.
It remains to be seen whether or not there will be any changes made to prevent similar incidents from occurring in future streams across all platforms.
