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.

Call of Duty

xQc stunned by toxic Call of Duty players in Black Ops Cold War

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

The face when the CoD lobby gets a little too lit.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.
