Body painter slams TikTok for taking down Halloween video

Popular body painter Intraventus has hit out at TikTok after they removed a number of her recent videos, including ones centered on Among Us and Catwoman. 

Body painting has long been a hot topic on the internet, with many platforms having vague rules about it, even though viewers will sit and watch the impressive transformations for hours on end.

One of the most popular body painters around is Intraventus. She streams her paintings on Twitch, amassing thousands of viewers each time she takes on a new project, though, she has plenty of issues with being banned and having content struck down

While she hasn’t had a problem with Twitch for a while, she is now having trouble posting videos on TikTok, and the streamer has hit out at the social media platform over the constant removal of her posts.

The body painter flagged an issue on October 28 as her Catwoman TikTok was taken down minutes after posting. “Also wasn’t reinstated when appealed. This needs to stop,” she said, attaching the original post for anyone who missed it. 

She followed that up and noted that she had another problem on October 30 as her impressive Among Us Halloween-themed body painting video was also deleted by TikTok. 

“Well what do you know? This was taken down, too. @tiktok_us What the actual fuq,” the body painter tweeted, re-posting the video of her Among Us Halloween-themed look. 

One response suggested that, because Intraventus had used a gun in her Among Us video, TikTok had flagged it for removal on that basis.

However, the body painter noted that she and plenty of other TikTok users have held up or shown a gun in their videos, but they have been allowed to stay online instead of being deleted. 

Similarly to Twitch, which has also had issues surrounding body painting content, TikTok doesn’t exactly give detailed reasoning for a ban or suspension, and usually just says that content is in violation of community guidelines. 

There’s no telling if they’ll change and clarify reasons a bit more in the future, or if they’ll leave creators somewhat in the dark. Though, Intraventus would like to see something change.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
