Twitch streamer Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollon doesn’t think her suspension for an on-stream wardrobe malfunction is enough of a punishment, and is taking matters into her own hands.

On April 24, the Twitch star accidentally flashed her viewers, leading to many fellow entertainers to call on the platform to suspend the streamer who infamously avoided a ban following a cat-throwing incident in 2019.

While Alinity did say she would be imposing a three day ban on herself, the streaming site did end up suspending her for a mere 24 hours – a punishment that didn’t seem fair to the Columbian-Canadian.

“Not long enough,” she said on Twitter when asked how long her suspension would last. “I'm actually trying to get it extended to 3 days.”

The streamer didn’t elaborate about how she was “trying” to get it extended or if she was in contact with the site directly.

So, despite the shorter-than-expected ban, Alinity will still be taking a self-imposed three-day break from streaming, so the earliest fans should expect to see her back on Twitch is Tuesday, April 28.

It’s unclear why Alinity felt the need to suspend herself for longer, but it may have to do with many accusing Twitch of having double standards.

As Dexerto previously reported, community figures such as Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and Kaceytron actively called on the streaming site to ban Alinity while Trainwreckstv even suggested the wardrobe malfunction was intentional for views.

Twitch has caused controversy in the past for punishing certain streamers while not acting with others. For instance, bodypainting broadcaster ‘forkgirl’ was banned after covering her upper body, confusing many in regards to Twitch's stance on the artform.

Another user, pin-up artist Saruei was banned even after making an effort to censor her art, which Twitch labeled as too suggestive for its site.

It remains to be seen if Twitch will extend Alinity’s suspension, but the platform doesn’t comment on individual cases. We’ll have to see what happens.
