Team Liquid and League of Legends star Yiliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng panicked after opening up a bizarre video on stream and called on Twitch not to ban his channel.

The LCS offseason is coming to a close and pro players are beginning to ramp up for the 2020 season after some dramatic changes were made to the game ahead of season 10.

Among them is popular North American star Doublelift, who has been streaming a lot of his solo queue practice leading up to Team Liquid’s return to the main stage.

While he was waiting in queue for another ranked match during his January 17 stream, Doublelift took the opportunity to watch some videos that had been recommended to him by viewers.

One of the videos he watched included highlights of the world’s largest furry convention called ‘Midwest FurFest,’ however, he quickly regretted checking it out only moments after opening it.

“These are actually real people, oh my god he’s wearing a tiger tail,” the Team Liquid ADC expressed, surprised by the lengths the furry community would go to for the massive convention.

Unfortunately for Doublelift, the highlight video also contained bizarre clips of adult toys that were available at the event, causing the League of Legends star to quickly panic in an attempt to remove it from his screen.

“What the f**k! Wait I can’t look at this, I’m going to get banned,” he exclaimed, minimizing the unusual YouTube video to comply with Twitch’s community guidelines.

“I didn’t know, I didn’t know! Holy sh*t, Twitch please don't ban me." Doublelift pleaded before later laughing and jokingly adding not to let the site's moderation team see the clip, "Guys, do not tell the mods what just happened."

As the Team Liquid star's managed to quickly remove the bizarre clip from his stream, it would be unlikely for his channel to receive a ban for the accidental error. However, many have complained about the broadcasting platform's inconsistent decisions for past events. Some streamers have been handed bans for showing prohibited content even momentarily, so Doublelift is better safe than sorry.
