Yet another Twitch artist has been banned by the platform for a sexually suggestive work. 

On September 18, Saejin revealed that Twitch had suspended him for the second time meaning a third infraction would result in a permanent ban.

The artist tweeted a photo of the allegedly inappropriate piece of non-nude cartoon females dressed in bathing suits. While the art does seem somewhat sexual, the content is similar in tone to games such as Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball – a game that users are allowed to stream on the site. 

According to Saejin, Twitch staff let him know ahead of time that he would be suspended, so he was able to back up copies of the vods.

The South Korean streamer added that the platform’s terms of service is getting to be too restrictive and the future of art on Twitch seems “wack”. 

In a follow-up tweet, Saejin said that in the event he received a permanent ban he would move to rival streaming site Mixer. The Microsoft-owned site gained notoriety back in August when Fortnite legend Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins revealed he would be ditching Twitch to stream exclusively on Mixer.

In a final post, the artist uploaded what he was working on during his last stream, but was unsure if it was worth finishing because of the risk of a potential ban. The work in progress shows a woman dressed in steampunk attire with exaggerated breasts – typical for the medium.

Saejin isn’t the first artist to be banned by Twitch for ‘sexually suggestive content’ and he likely won’t be the last. French pin-up artist Sareui was suspended for drawing characters from the game Fate/Grand Order

According to Sareui, she drew the characters “exactly the same as they are in the game”. 

Saruei/TwitchSaruei was not happy after Twitch decided to ban her.

Twitch’s public rules state that the site will: “restrict content that involves nudity or is sexual in nature.” They go on to add that while they understand, “some nudity or sexual content might be intended for educational, scientific, artistic, newsworthy, or academic purposes, we restrict this content due to the diversity in age and cultural backgrounds of our global community.”

With all of Twitch’s recent bans as of late, it may be time for the platform to update its rules or be more vocal in why some things are acceptable and others are not.

In-Vent-Ational recap

Four separate lobbies filled to the brim with popular personalities battled it out during the event. Eventually, the best of the best moved on to the final showdown. This was where the most elite Among Us players showed their skills to the world. From extraordinary memory to map knowledge and of course, the ability to deceive everyone else, it all came in handy.

The likes of Ludwig, Classify, and Yassuo all made it through to the final round of action in the FaZe event. However, only one player could come away with the crown.

After a few maps of intense murder-sprees and subsequent investigations, it was up and coming Twitch streamer ‘Yetiapocalypse’ that closed out the victory. They soared to the top of the pack with a six-point lead over second place, well ahead of some of the bigger internet celebs in the lobby. The final placements can be found below.
