UPDATE August 28, 2:10 PM PST – Intraventus has been unbanned from Twitch, under 24 hours after calling out the platform for her suspension.

Original story can be read below.


Body painter ‘Intraventus’ has hit out at Twitch and their “negligence” after she received another ban from the live streaming platform, as she calls for clarity and change over what has happened. 

Even though the large majority of streamers use Twitch to play games, there are plenty of others who use it to host podcasts, do news shows, and even stream themselves making art – be it professionally or as a hobby. 

One thing that falls under the art category is body painting. Twitch has strict rules about body painting, and it is allowed so long as the streamers meets standards relating to how much of their body is covered up on stream. 

However, for Intraventus – a popular body painting streamer has over 71,000 followers on the platform – she has been left to call out Twitch yet again after receiving another ban for her body painting.

Cosplayer and body painter “Intraventus’s” take on Darkstalkers’ Morrigan Aensland is a testament to her skill.

The body painter, who was left in tears the last time the platform suspended her, expressed her frustrations on August 28 by saying she is “tired of having to deal with the negligence” from Twitch and that it is “unfair and happening far too often” to her. 

Intraventus even attached a video of how she had been painting herself, noting that the ban reason she received started that she was either insufficiently covered or took too long of a break during the stream.

“I didn’t take a single break. I literally painted the entire stream. So, Twitch, what really happened here?” she added. “I’m so tired of being banned off of your platform, meanwhile, while I use your platform, I’m constantly harassed by trolls and children that can’t understand that this is art. You need to do something.”

Unlike some other body painters, Intraventus has not had her entire channel removed, and has just received a 24-hour ban from Twitch.

She also noted that while she is a Twitch partner, she doesn’t have a partner manager to turn to in order to get some help, so it might be something Twitch has to seriously look into moving forward.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”
