Twitch streamer Corinna Kopf has revealed new information on why she was banned from the platform during her birthday celebration on December 1.

The popular model, who has nearly 400,000 followers on Twitch, originally claimed she had been banned for wearing a chanel tank top during a stream. However, the streamer has since provided new information about the ban.

On Twitter, the Instagram sensation with 3.3 million fans explained that a clip from “well over a year ago” was the reason for the ban. She then uploaded a screenshot of the clip in which she is seen sitting on a chair and appears to readjust her top with lingerie underneath.

Unfortunately, the model didn’t post a link to the clip in question so there’s not a lot to go on, but it seems as if the Twitch star was confused as to which clip resulted in the ban, leading her to first assume the chanel tank top was the culprit.

“If we’re banning people from year old clips then I’ll start making my list right now,” she added.

Dexerto has reached out to Corinna Kopf for more information on the clip, but did not hear back by press time.

Kopf was very vocally opposed to her suspension from the onset and immediately called Twitch’s “double standards” into question. “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,” she said when the news first broke.

The model went on to use fellow streamer Alinity an example to illustrate the platform’s hypocrisy over what is deamed a bannable offense. “Remember someone threw their cat but I got banned for wearing a cute top?” she rhetorically asked over 900,000 of her Twitter followers.

This was a reference to the infamous 2019 cat-throwing scandal where the streamer appeared to toss her animal over her shoulder during a round of Apex Legends. Notably, Alinity was never banned for the incident.

Instagram/corinnakopfPopular! Kopf has over 3 million Instagram followers.

It will be interesting to see how Kopf carries on with streaming on Twitch or if she will move to another platform in protest.

Considering her massive following, Kopf could be a big attraction for a rival streaming site such as Mixer.

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.
