Popular Twitch streamer Forsen has claimed he was banned because the platform’s moderators misheard him, causing his suspension for “hateful conduct.”

Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors was banned from Twitch on September 10 – his second suspension on the platform, following his previous ban in May. He wasn’t given a detailed explanation behind his account ban, but once unbanned, Forsen talked revealed more information.

During his September 12 stream, Fors went over the stream in question, posted on his YouTube VOD channel, finding the instance for which he believes he was suspended.

Forsen unbanned after being ‘misheard’

In the video, Forsen says, “F**k. F**k it!” which, he explains, due to his Swedish accent, sounded like a homophobic slur.

The Swede says it was “quite silly” and that Twitch wrote to him explaining that he had used a homophobic slur, to which Forsen replied: “No I didn’t say the F-word.”

“I got banned for hateful conduct for seven days, they [Twitch] should be banned for hateful conduct for making fun of my Swedish accent.”

Forsen added, “It’s okay if it’s one person, but it’s a whole group when it comes to banning bigger streamers, it’s a whole group of people on the moderation team and everyone listens in.” He then explained that he understands why it happened, as some members of his chat also mistakenly thought he had used a homophobic slur.

There have been multiple instances in the past of streamers being banned, who claim they were misheard. These include TFBlade, Pinkward, and Viperous.

In the case of TFBlade, Twitch upheld the ban, despite his appeals. Pinkward claimed that he actually said ‘Yikers’ – not the racial slur he was banned for. Viperous similarly was banned for using a racist slur, but posted evidence that she actually said ‘nerd.’

Twitch lifted Forsen’s ban on September 11, only around 24 hours after he was suspended. He remains one of the most popular streamers, with over 1.3 million followers. He has been broadcasting for almost a decade on the platform.

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Dixie D’Amelio finally confirmed their relationship status after weeks of being “besties,” but the details of their relationship are still up in the air — more specifically, how Noah even went about asking Dixie to be his girlfriend, in the first place.

Despite being spotted by paparazzi and even sharing an on-screen smooch for Dixie’s music video, this TikTok couple was adamant that they were nothing more than friends, choosing to keep their relationship status private in the age of oversharing on social media.

However, Noah finally broke the silence on October 6, admitting that he and Dixie were officially dating in a then-unreleased interview that sent fans into a tizzy.

While their relationship was almost immediately met with scandal — with Griffin Johnson even creating a diss track that hinted Noah had broken some sort of “bro code” — it seems that these two aren’t letting the drama get them down.

Now that things are official, though, Noah is opening up more about his romance with Dixie, even revealing how he asked out the TikToker-turned-singer — and his methods are giving guys a whole lot to live up to.

During a collaboration with YouTuber Jeff Wittek on October 13, Noah admitted that he and Dixie used to visit Malibu, California quite often, giving him the perfect getaway spot to pop the question.

“There was this lifeguard tower that we always used to sit at, and just talk and stuff,” Noah explained. “So basically, I took her to Malibu on September 25, we went to the lifeguard post and I decorated it with candles. I brought s’mores and s**t.”

“I told her like, wait in the car,” he continued. “I got some stuff out of the trunk, decorated the lifeguard post, like rose petals, candles, stuff like that. I came back when I was done decorating, walked her there, and she knew what was happening, I think. And then I just popped the question!”

There’s no doubting that Noah Beck is this generation’s Prince Charming after hearing all that. It looks like miss Dixie got pretty lucky!
