Popular Twitch streamer Kaitlyn 'Amouranth' Siragusa has been banned again on the streaming platform, leaving fans wondering when she will be back with her daily broadcasts.

UPDATE: Amouranth has since been unbanned as of March 13, with her suspension lasting 24 hours.


 

The streaming personality has almost 1.5 million followers on her channel, not to mention the thousands of subscribers who pay every month to enjoy a premium experience when watching along, although they won't be able to watch her for the time being as the channel has been suspended.

At the time of writing, the reason why Amouranth has been banned on Twitch is unconfirmed. For those who haven't watched Kaitlyn's content before, she can usually be seen hosting dance, fitness and ASMR streams for her growing audience – interacting along the way.

The news was revealed by the StreamerBans account on Twitter, which regularly monitors the activity of Twitch partners and informs their fans about any changes their account experiences – such being banned, or unbanned.

When banned on Twitch, the streaming service will inform the streamer of the reason as to why action was taken via email, although not everybody will reveal the reason why publicly. So, we'll have to wait and see on that front.

Siragusa boasts a wildly successful following, having raked in over 100 million views since starting out in 2016, attracting thousands of people each time she goes live – according to Twitch Stats.

Just two hours before her channel was taken down, the streamer was active on Twitter, promoting her very own Patreon page. There's a good chance that this news is just as much a shock to her, as it will be for the audience who tune in to watch.

Some fans have taken to Reddit, with user Tupetsa sharing what appears to be a statement from Amouranth, allegedly posted in her Discord server.

It states: "Hi everyone, I have been told that I'm being suspended for something that happened during a gym stream last week. I haven't seen the vod yet... Waiting for them to show me so I can appeal. I don't have much more information than that. The longest it can be is three days."

This is the second time that Amouranth has been banned and if the statement proves to be accurate, things should be back up and running soon.
