Popular Twitch streamer Amouranth explained how she avoided being banned on the platform after accidentally showing sensitive material from a troll during a May broadcast.

Like many top streamers, Amouranth was trolled by a banned viewer, who claimed that the reason for their ban that “someone said stuff” using their account after they’d left their computer open at a public library.

Amouranth looked into the viewer’s Twitch profile and the messages that had gotten them banned during a May livestream — all while the viewer’s inappropriate profile picture showed in the upper left-hand corner of her screen.

Amouranth was looking into a banned viewer’s profile when she accidentally showed some sensitive material.

Normally, such content would result in a suspension for streamers, but Amouranth claimed that broadcasters can circumvent such bans by immediately ending their streams and deleting all VODs and clips of the offending moment.

“It should be okay, chat,” she reassured her viewers after they warned her about the incident. “Twitch said that if something pops up on your screen now, as long as end the stream and and delete the VOD, and delete the clips, then you’re fine. So it should be okay.”

While the streamer has come under fire in the past for not being suspended over streams where she showed herself wearing a bikini in her pool, many commenters have come out in her defense after this latest incident, explaining that it would be completely unfair for trolls to have such an advantage over streamers by using inappropriate profile pictures on Twitch’s site as a means to “bait” a ban.

“I get that people don’t like her, but if people would get banned for s**t like this, it would be such a toxic environment,” one commenter explained. “It would give WAY too much power to viewers to troll streamers they don’t like into getting banned.”

Commenters came out in defense of Amouranth, noting how unfair it was that a troll could be responsible for “baiting” a ban for the streamer.

Still others pointed out the hypocrisy in Amouranth’s potential ban over the matter, as the viewer themselves hadn’t been suspended on the platform over their profile picture.

Amouranth has not been banned on Twitch at the time of writing, with the results of her supposed workaround for a probable suspension pending.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
