Amouranth banned from Twitch for first time since 2021

Amouranth banned from Twitch for first time since 2021

Twitch streamer Amouranth has been banned from the streaming platform for the first time since 2021.

Twitch star Amouranth, real name Kaitlyn Siragusa, has been banned from the platform for the first time since 2021.

Amouranth is one of the most popular female streamers on the platform with a whopping 6.3 million followers. Last year, Amouranth temporarily stepped away from the platform after alleging that she was in an abusive relationship with her now ex-husband, who had been dictating her content. After parting ways with him, Amouranth expressed an interest in streaming more games, more so than doing hot tub content which her ex-husband previously encouraged her to do.

The Twitch streamer didn’t give up her adult content completely though, adding that this would be ‘selfish’ to do. She did express that she felt much happier having total control over her Twitch channel. Now though, things have taken a turn for the worse as Amouranth is currently banned on Twitch.

As reported by Dexerto, Amouranth’s ban went live yesterday, on 4 May, and it’s the first time that this has happened since 2021. It’s not currently known why the Twitch star has been banned. Neither Twitch nor Amouranth have commented on the fact. The channel simply shows Twitch’s classic ban message which reads, “This channel is temporarily unavailable due to a violation of Twitch’s Community Guidelines or Terms of Service.”

What makes this perplexing is that Amouranth hasn’t been live on Twitch since Monday 1 May, so whatever the reason, it’s taken Twitch a few days to spring into action. Dexerto added that Amouranth did recently have a run in with fellow streamer Adriana Chechik. On her own stream, Chechik said that she had “no respect” for Amouranth with Amouranth responding, “I’ll challenge her in the ring. Catch me outside, how about that?”

It seems a little extreme for that to garner a ban but guidelines do forbid threats of physical harm. We’ll be keeping an eye out on further updates.
