Bodypaint streamer hits out at Twitch after being indefinitely banned


A Twitch streamer received an indefinite banfrom the platform due to a February 13 broadcast, leaving her questioning the site’s stance on bodypainting.

Taking to Twitter, bodypainting broadcaster “forkgirl” posted a photo of what she looked like when Twitch banned her account.

As evidenced by her photo, the streamer was in the process of painting her body to mimic the attire of an anime character, and had only covered her upper body before getting banned.

“I don’t even know what to say, I’m just so sad and disappointed,” she remarked. “I’m within TOS, and I still haven’t heard back from my appeal from JUNE.”

Back in June 2019, Forkgirl was hit with a twenty-four-hour ban during a bodypaint stream and sent an appeal to Twitch. According to the streamer, she has yet to hear back, even more than half a year later.

While the streamer did not indicate which of Twitch’s rules she had supposedly broken, it’s suggested that the bodypainting itself was the issue.
