Alinity slams Twitch over “big problem” with its ban policy

Twitch streamer ‘Alinity Divine’ came under fire after suffering a wardrobe malfunction during a live broadcast, only receiving a 24-hour ban for the scandal — an issue that she’s hitting out at the platform for, after FaZe Adapt received a lengthier ban for showing the slip-up.

Alinity became the target of social media backlash once again on April 24, after accidentally showing too much skin during a live stream when trying to stuff an object under her shirt.

A clip from the broadcast quickly went viral, with critics across the net calling for Twitch to ban the streamer over a matter that has historically seen many other streamers receive lengthy suspensions, in comparison.

Finally, Twitch suspended Alinity for a 24-hour period: a length that was called into question almost immediately, but especially after fellow content creator FaZe Adapt received a three-day suspension for an apparently similar offense, although he was unsure of the reason for his ban.

“This is pretty cringe,” Adapt wrote of his suspension, which he proved with a screenshot of an email from Twitch, showing that he’d been banned for three days for “sexually suggestive content or activities.”

Alinity herself even responded to the situation, quoting Adapt’s Tweet in a reply calling for Twitch to give greater clarity to streamers and viewers regarding bans.

“THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM!” she wrote. “Twitch needs to come forward and EXPLAIN the reason that gets people suspended: With a timestamp of the stream and a description of EXACTLY what happened. PUBLICLY. They can create a forum specifically for it. There needs to be RECORDS of this.”

That’s not all; the streamer went on to admit that she’s grown tired of becoming a point of contention on the site due to rarely being punished for on-stream mishaps.

“I am extremely tired of being a point of comparison and being harassed by the communities of every single streamer that receives a suspension,” she continued.

This isn’t the first time she’s hit out at Twitch over their response to the wardrobe malfunction, either, having also asked the platform to ban her for longer than 24-hours and admitting to trying for a three-day suspension in wake of a scandal that has sent the community into chaos.

Popular YouTuber Ethan Dolan has revealed on Instagram the details of his long-term relationship with girlfriend Kristina Alice, who he reconnected with this week after spending most of quarantine apart.

Ethan and his twin Grayson originally rose to popularity on the video app Vine in 2013, and have since gone on to produce content on their highly successful YouTube channel with over 11 million subscribers.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
