As one of the most popular live-streaming platforms, Twitch boasts a wide variety of content creators, from IRL streamers to pro gamers and more. Sometimes, these streamers are hit with bans for unexpected reasons that leave them confused, including Gabepeixe’s ban for a seemingly innocent Pink Floyd poster. 

Brazilian streamer Gabriel “Gabepeixe” Baptista announced that he received a three-day ban from the site in a Tweet on September 23.

According to Baptista, he was suspended from the platform due to showing the album cover for  Pink Floyd’s “Back Catalogue” – but that’s not the most mind-blowing part of the ban, by far.

As it so happens, the album cover in question wasn’t even his. Rather, Baptista was watching another streamer’s broadcast during his own stream, which contained the album cover in question in view of the camera.

However, it wasn’t copyright infringement that resulted in Baptista’s ban: the “Back Catalogue” art features a series of nude women with their backs turned to the camera, with their bodies painted to resemble the band’s other album covers, likely posing a breach of Twitch’s Community Guidelines.

In his Tweet, Gabe explained that he’d been banned for showing the album, which appeared on another streamers broadcast. The streamer in questions has been streaming on Twitch for over a year without a ban, with the poster in full view. 

“…Twitch will [ban] me for three days because of a Pink Floyd album frame, which appeared during a video of a [guy] who has been live on Twitch for one year and never happened,” Twitter’s translation reads.

Needless to say, Gabe’s ban sparked outrage across the net, with fans and bystanders alike scratching their heads at what seems to be a wildly confusing suspension.

“It’s album art that includes body painting, which is from another channel, but this guy get banned?” one Reddit user wrote of the issue. “What?”

Others pointed out that live body painting is allowed while an album containing women wearing body painting warranted a supposed ban – but this wouldn’t be the first time streamers have been suspended for unexpected reasons.

A total of eight streamers have reported being banned for unspecified “fraudulent charges” after receiving large donations of bits from viewers using multiple accounts, only receiving automated messages in response to their queries.

Thus far, both Twitch and Baptista have yet to expound upon his ban. But with multiple instances of unexpected suspensions for “sexual content” cropping up across the site (such as a cosplayer being banned for wearing a Chun-Li outfit), Twitch is in the public eye for once again for its controversial moderation.

Popular YouTuber Ethan Dolan has revealed on Instagram the details of his long-term relationship with girlfriend Kristina Alice, who he reconnected with this week after spending most of quarantine apart.

Ethan and his twin Grayson originally rose to popularity on the video app Vine in 2013, and have since gone on to produce content on their highly successful YouTube channel with over 11 million subscribers.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
