FaZe Adapt “confused” after Twitch bans him for inappropriate content

FaZe Adapt has been banned from Twitch but the popular content creator is all too confused over what may have actually led to the punishment.

Amid a period of inconsistent consequences across the Amazon-owned streaming platform, Alexander ‘FaZe Adapt’ Hamilton has found himself barred from going live.

The FaZe Clan member couldn’t quite tell you what led to the punishment, however, as he took to Twitter to vent his frustrations on April 30.

Adapt’s channel has been locked down as of April 30.

“This is pretty cringe,” the 22-year-old content creator said on Twitter as he revealed a temporary punishment from Twitch. Adapt received a three-day suspension after broadcasting “suggestive content or activities.”

With over 130,000 followers on his channel, Adapt had recently been building out his presence on Twitch. Throughout the month of April alone, he gained over 40,000 new members.

Expanding on the situation, it seems as though both Adapt and his viewers are all but stumped as to what actually caused the ban. No warning was issued, and the official email failed to address how Adapt broke the rules.

Claiming that he avoided anything too risky on stream, Adapt argued that he “never showed anything like that unless [he’s] just completely clueless.”

Countless fans chimed in also questioning just what could have resulted in the punishment from Twitch. 

Closing in on six million subscribers on YouTube, perhaps the vague ban could force Adapt to jump ship with his livestreaming efforts.

In such a tumultuous time for the platform, with a seemingly inconsistent approach to handing out bans and suspensions, this latest action has just led to more confusion.

At the time of writing, no clips have surfaced that showcase Adapt breaking the Twitch terms of service. If anything comes to light, it’ll be included here shortly.


TikTok Star Zoe Laverne admits she “caught feelings” for underage fan

TikToker Zoe Laverne has spoken out after facing a huge backlash from multiple leaked videos showing her allegedly kissing an underage fan.

Earlier this week a video surfaced online showing 19-year-old Zoe and a 13-year-old called Connor exchanging a kiss, confirming previous accusations from ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt.

In the days before, leaked Instagram messages showed that Cody and Amber raised concerns over “very intense” interactions with Connor. Zoe had previously denied allegations of a relationship with an underage influencer.

Despite leaving Instagram in September following a lip-syncing controversy, Zoe appears to have created, and now runs, a fandom Instagram account called “zlpfandom2.0.” Shortly after the videos leaked, she explained via the account that she would be taking a break from social media, but did not address the issue.

Zoe explained that she and Connor have separated

Her mom, however, did come online to share her thoughts and defended Zoe’s relationship with Connor, saying “Anybody can reach over and kiss somebody. They’re best friends.”

On October 28, Zoe finally addressed the videos on the fandom Instagram account.  She wrote, “I would like to say I am aware of what was leaked.. but Connor was not raped, etc. Connor and I kissed yes.. never had a relationship but we did catch feelings for each other after being so close. These videos were from months ago and we both realized it was wrong and we both cut it off.”

She explained that she understood the ramifications of her actions, adding, “before anything was leaked I did tell his mom we kissed. She wasn’t happy obviously but she understood that we are both teenagers and that feelings can be caught.

“I am aware that I am an adult and I am aware that I have done something wrong and I am very sorry for what I have done. Connor and I will [livestream] together as soon as this all calms down and explain ourselves.”

She also confirmed that the situation has been settled and the two have separated. “Connor and I have had no communication for 3 days now. We are still friends but we think it’s best to stop talking and work on each other’s mental health and spend time with our families”

Despite the very serious controversy, Zoe’s TikTok account continues to grow above 17 million followers.
