Twitch streamer Forsen was hit with a ban on the platform on November 26. Viewers were left in the dark until a day later when he revealed the reason why he was suspended.
Forsen is one of the website’s most popular streamers, with over 1.3 million followers. He has been broadcasting for almost a decade on the platform, too.
On November 26, it was confirmed that he was banned yet again – with many speculating as to why. Theories around Twitch’s DMCA claim controversy swirled, but no official reason was given.
A day later, the streamer explained why he’d been banned – and it’s odd, to say the least. “I’m currently banned for the horse gif,” he said, before revealing the length of the suspension. “The ban is indefinite which means undetermined ban duration. Unlucky.”
I'm currently banned for the horse gif.
The ban is indefinite which means undetermined ban duration.

This isn’t his first time facing a suspension from the platform. Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors was banned from Twitch for the second time on September 10, following his previous ban in May.
He wasn’t given a detailed explanation behind his account ban, but once unbanned, Forsen revealed more information. During his September 12 stream, Forsen explained he believes he was suspended for using a homophobic slur, but says it was ‘misheard’ because of his Swedish accent.
It isn’t clear how long “indefinite” means – it could be a week, 30 days, or longer.
