Twitch streamer and model Corinna Kopf has taken aim at the broadcasting platform’s murky guidelines, after she was allegedly banned for wearing a short-cut Chanel tank top during her birthday stream.

The streaming website has come under fire again, this time from model and Instagram influencer Kopf, who revealed she had been barred from streaming because she went live while wearing underwear over the weekend.

Only the influencer, who had been live on Twitch speaking to her fans to celebrate her 24th birthday, had actually been wearing a designer tank top from Chanel, and not her ‘undergarments’ as the Amazon-owned site claimed.

Instagram: Corinna KopfCorinna was banned for allegedly wearing her ‘undergarments’ during her birthday stream.

“Twitch is so lame lmfao,” the model tweeted on December 1, and took aim at the fact that the site’s judiciary had allowed other streamers to get away with more revealing outfits, and other less-than-savory actions while broadcasting.

“I got banned tonight on Twitch for wearing ‘undergarments.’ I was wearing a Chanel tank top. Girls body paint on Twitch and I get banned for that lmfao. Remember someone threw their cat, but I got banned for wearing a cute top.”

Kopf boasts nearly 400,000 followers on Twitch, many of whom have followed her across from Instagram, where she has 3.3 million fans, and Twitter, where she has 973k. She first joined the site with a personal channel in 2018, but rapidly gained followers after she began using it more regularly in June, 2019.

The model also took the chance to compare not only the double standards between streamers on the platform, but also Twitch’s heavy moderation compared to other social media sites like Twitter, where nudity is less monitored.

“I’m about to post my nipples on Twitter,” she jokingly threatened minutes after the revelation, though she didn’t follow through with the light-hearted threat.

Kopf also added to her initial point by retweeting a reply from Kalei Renay, who suggested if the Amazon-owned site was banning people for “legit cute tops” then they should be culling three-quarters of Just Chatting.

“If that’s the case, and they banned you for that, they need to ban 75% of the females on Just Chatting, wearing the same thing if not worse,” Renay replied. “Not hating on anyone, just saying the banning double standards are f*cked.”

This isn’t the first time recently Twitch has been slammed for bans recently either, with the platform coming under fire from all angles for their moderation.

Entertainment streamer PaymoneyWubby has been on a warpath against Twitch since he was banned for streaming inside a restaurant, despite gaining permission, while CSGO legend Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev demanded the site remove his partnership after being banned for undisclosed reasons on November 29.

There was also a strange six-minute ban of moderator program Nightbot, and cosplay streamer Haley ‘TheHaleyBaby’ Schmidt echoed similar sentiments to Kopf for her three-day ban for sexual content after she revealed a character costume.

Instagram: Corinna KopfLet’s just say Corinna Kopf and her fans aren’t happy with Twitch.

Needless to say, Twitch’s moderation has been under the microscope from fans across the internet in recent times, and Kopf’s ban for wearing a tank top on her birthday may have just seen another community ready to tear into the streaming site’s murky guidelines.

Corinna has not yet revealed how long her ban from the streaming platform will be, and whether she has any intentions to return once it concludes.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was jokingly trolled by fans after they made memes about an embarrassing story he revealed in an interview from years ago.

PewDiePie may be known today as the most popular YouTuber in the world with over 107 million subscribers to his channel. However, in 2010, he was virtually unknown as he was learning to make content while in Sweden.

During his latest upload, a story from Kjellberg’s past came back to haunt him. The star reacted to fans creating memes about an embarrassing shower incident that he revealed in a video he posted a couple years back.

PewDiePie fans dig up hilarious story from his past

During the November 23 episode of Last Week I Asked You, the Swede reacted to fans making memes about a story he had revealed in 2017. “If you are confused by this, don’t ask. Because I’m not saying it again,” the 31-year-old laughed.

When more viewers continued to make jokes about the embarrassing incident, the star exclaimed, “Why did I share this story?! Stop it! I had no choice. I do not control my anus!”

For those baffled by what he is talking about, fans are referencing a story the YouTuber explained in a previous upload from three years ago. When Kjellberg was younger, he got violently sick, and had to go to the bathroom in a shower at a harbor in Sweden.

The embarrassing incident was revealed by the content creator in an in-depth interview he did with his friend in 2017. In the one-hour video, Pewds went over his entire life story and included his triumphs and failures – including the infamous shower story.

“I had eaten something weird that night. I felt it a few hours later [after eating] at the party. And I’m like I need to s**t right now, or else I’m going to s**t myself in front of everybody. So I ran. It was that state of emergency!” he said.

Unfortunately when he reached the public bathroom, there was a massive line of people out the door. “So I told them, “Guys, this is an emergency I need to go!” … But no one would listen to me. So I ran in [to the restroom] anyways and I found a toilet. But it was a shower. So I took a s**t in the shower.”

Hilariously, the entertainer when on to explain that he eventually got a job at the same harbor, and the bathroom incident had became a legend with employees. “I got a job at that very harbor, and they would always tell the story about the man that took a s**t in the shower,” he laughed.

Despite the story being known for a few years now, fans of the content creator have recently been digging it up to make memes. If nothing else, the hilarious tale is a good example of “if you have to go, you have to go.” Kjellberg’s fans, of course, are only teasing him out of love.
