Ex-Overwatch professional player, Matt ‘Dellor’ Vaughn was banned indefinitely from Twitch for a series of sexist remarks, but the suspension has now been reduced.
Dellor is known for his controversial outbursts and moments of rage on stream – he was kicked off his Overwatch professional team for a series of racist remarks made during a tournament.
However, his latest offense came during a game of Apex Legends where he repeatedly abused his female teammate before shouting at her to “go cook a fucking sandwich”.
Immediately after the outburst, Dellor was extremely subdued and avoided bringing up the issue, fearing the consequences of making such a remark while live on stream.
His fears were confirmed as he stated on Twitter that he had been banned indefinitely from Twitch, and said that he had contacted the platform in order to get his ban reduced, as streaming was his livelihood.

In an emotional video posted to his YouTube channel, Dellor declared that his ban from the website had indeed been reduced to a 30-day suspension, rather than him losing his channel permanently, and said he would not be appealing the decision.
Dellor apologized to the gamer involved in the incident multiple times and vowed to not let himself take things too far again in the future for the sake of entertainment.
Fans of Dellor will be pleased to see the streamer return to the platform soon, with plenty more moments of rage almost guaranteed in the future.
Hopefully, he will have learnt his lesson and not make another error that could cost him his Twitch channel for good.
