Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca, former Overwatch League pro and Twitch partner, has received a thirty-day ban on his Twitch channel. He is planning an appeal.

Twitch has dropped the banhammer once again. The popular Overwatch pro-turned-streamer is facing a thirty-day ban on his Twitch channel.

Dafran responded on his own Twitter account, confirming the 30-day length and informing his followers that he will try to appeal the ban. As for a reason, dafran says it is due to his “ignorance,” admitting that it stems from  saying “stupid s**t all the time.”

What are the potential reasons for the ban?

The exact reason for the dafran ban is unknown, but there are a few theories. Some fans say it was because the streamer told an off-meta support to “kill themselves” during an Overwatch game he was streaming. 

Others allege that he was laughing at ‘race jokes” while on stream. Unfortunately, due to his channel being offline, any clips of these alleged incidents currently don’t exist. The ban could also relate to a completely different event altogether.

If his comments toward the off-meta support player are accurate, it wouldn’t be the first time that dafran has lashed out on his stream. In the past week, he exploded with rage at the tail end of a defeat, raining down expletives on top of his teammates and imploring them to uninstall the game.

Just before that, he went off on a profanity-laced rant toward a viewer who claimed the streamer was “not their hero anymore.”

Whether or not dafran returns to Overwatch after his most recent ragequit remains to be seen, as does the outcome of dafran’s ban appeal. He most recently played competitively for the Atlanta Reign in the latest season of the Overwatch League. He announced his competitive retirement in March.

We will provide updates with more information regarding the ban and the appeal as that info becomes available.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
