Popular Just Chatting streamer Nicole ‘BadBunny’ has been taken off Twitch again, this time over a DMCA takedown during the Democratic Debate in America.

BadBunny has had her fair share of controversy in 2019, being struck with a suspension in April for breaking community guidelines on sexual content, as well as defending herself after homophobic and racist comments emerged from her Discord account.

She is now back under the spotlight, after her channel was taken down over a DMCA complaint during the Democratic Debate on November 20.

Why was BadBunny banned?

BadBunny’s Twitch account was taken offline mid-stream on November 20 due to a DMCA takedown over the Democratic Debate. Many streamers have been talking about the debate on the Just Chatting section tonight, with many taking precautions so as to not get taken down.

BadBunny posted on Twitter shortly after her channel was banned, calling out Twitch for a lack of oversight in their reporting and suspension systems.

“You just banned @Mike_from_PA and me because a troll abused your DMCA reporting system,” she said. “There’s no claimant listed. This is a random Gmail account. Is this really your system?”

BadBunny has suggested Steven ‘Destiny’ Bonnell’s community could be responsible for the ban, due to mass reporting her channel and filing fake DMCA claims.

In a message on her Discord, both BadBunny and ‘MikeFromPA’ have said that it was “100% DGG,” which is shorthand for destiny.gg, the name of Destiny’s forum. 

“NBC had nothing to do with the claim,” said MikeFromPA, “It was a false claim made to look like it was NBC.”

DiscordBadBunny and MikeFromPA have blamed the bans on Destiny, another prominent political streamer.

Destiny has responded to the allegations though, saying that BadBunny and MikeFromPA need to take responsibility for their poor behavior on the platform before they start accusing other users of doxxing them.

“Now when I stream anything related to debates, I’m going to have these dipsh*t’s audiences all over my a** trying to false DMCA me because I’m calling on my community to do it,” the Twitch streamer said.

“How f**king amazing that these guys have no responsibility for any of their sh*t, what a joke,” he added.

DMCA takedowns can usually result in Twitch channel bans varying in length from 24 hours to two weeks. It’s not clear how long BadBunny will be off the platform for, but we will update you with more information as it comes available.

YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren are set to take to the boxing ring on April 17, but they’re already in a war of words ahead of the bout.

It’s no Conor McGregor, but Jake Paul is going big for his next boxing bout.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
