Cosplay streamer TheHaleyBaby hits out at Twitch over sexual content ban

Content creator and Twitch cosplay streamer, Haley ‘TheHaleyBaby’ Schmidt, was left confused after Amazon’s streaming service served a 3-day sexual content ban without prior warning.

Twitch has enforced its strict community guidelines against Schmidt’s channel, handing her a suspension specifically for “soliciting goods, money or services for nudity or sexual content.”

The streaming platform’s guidelines on sexual content state while some ‘sexual content’ could be considered artistic, they still restrict such content due to the diversity of their audience.

It appears that the ban was not actually caused by on-stream content, as TheHaleyBaby explains the violation was caused by contents in her “channel profile”.

TheHaleyBaby (Instagram).TheHaleyBaby is a partnered Twitch streamer.

During a livestream on November 16, TheHaleyBaby’s broadcast was cut-off mid way through. To Schmidt’s surprise, her channel had been dealt a Community Guideline strike for “soliciting goods, money or services for nudity or sexual content.”

After only being given a general overview of her 3-day restriction, the Twitch partner was swift to respond to her Twitter following. “I’m actually so sad… I been suspended from Twitch for 3 days,” Schmidt said. “I was literally mid-stream and they shut it down.”

Moreover, the cosplayer was insistent that she had never shown any sexually explicit content on her channel. Yet, Twitch moderators ruled TheHaleyBaby had breached their terms of service — enough to justify 3-day ban. 

Schmidt followed up by insisting that she had not placed any content worthy of breaching their TOS, after pleading with Twitch Support in a bid to discuss the ban.

Nonetheless, the cosplayer later accepted Twitch’s veto by stating: “There’s nothing I can really do at this point except trust in Twitch’s rules, accept what happened, be better and just keep myself busy for 3 days.”

It is the latest in a string of suspensions for sexual content bans, including a particularly controversial incident in which a “pin-up” artist was banned for her drawings.

As Twitch continue to swing the banhammer, Haley will be looking forward to returning to her 129,000 followers on November 19 and give her channel the once over.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
