April 26 update: Alinity's 24-hour Twitch suspension is up, with the streamer's account active again on the platform. However, she's still imposing a three-day suspension on herself. The original story continues below.

Twitch streamer Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollon has been banned from Twitch, following a wardrobe malfunction during a broadcast on April 24.

The streamer had earlier 'banned herself' from the platform earlier in the day, but now she's been officially suspended by the streaming service itself, and her channel has been temporarily taken down.

The Columbian has found herself embroiled in drama yet again after she accidentally revealed too much of herself after trying to stuff a pillow down her shirt during a livestream.

Immediately after the incident, the internet is awash with people calling for her suspension from the platform.

On April 25, the streamer addressed the controversy on Twitter, and claimed that regardless of what the Amazon-owned platform decided to do about the situation, she was going to be placing 'herself' under a 'three-day suspension,' calling it "fair."

"Hey, so regardless of whatever Twitch decides to do, I'm gonna give myself a 3 day suspension from the platform. I think it is fair," she tweeted out. Hours later, the platform handed her an official punishment.

The platform's Community Guidelines state that "overall surrounding framing and context" will be taken into account when assessing a situation that's violated their rules, but does not comment on CG violations publicly to respect the privacy of its users.

Alinity then followed it up with more tweets two hours later, telling people outraged that she hadn't yet been banned over the incident to take it up with Twitch. She also asked how "their inconsistencies" with bans is her fault.

"Yo, if you guys don't like how Twitch handles bans take it with them," she said. "How are their inconsistencies my fault?"

"You guys know I have been suspended before, right? So many people saying I don't get in trouble and s**t. I just didn't make a big fuzz when I got suspended, cause WHO CARES?" she continued. "GUYS I GOT BANNED BUT X AND Y PERSON DIDN'T WAH WAH WAH" Not my kinda s**t really.... I just took time off to think about my mistakes."

This latest drama follows a string of other controversies involving the streamer – most famously when she was accused of "abusing" her cats by 'throwing' one over her shoulder and feeding it vodka, with some even calling animal protective services on her. She was later cleared of any wrongdoing by the Saskatoon SPCA.

The length of Alinity's ban is currently unknown. Suspensions typically last from 24 hours, to three days, or up to one month.
