Popular streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors slammed Twitch for issuing him a two week ban during his May 23 broadcast. The Swedish personality explained to viewers why he won’t apologize to the platform.

Twitch legend Forsen found himself receiving a ban on May 8 for language he used during a stream. The suspension was for a two weeks – a punishment usually reserved for serious infractions.

On his return stream back to the platform, the Swede hit out at the Amazon-owned company and claims he was taken “out of context.” He also called out the employee that issued the ban, telling them to “re-evaluate their own guidelines.”

During his latest broadcast, the streamer called out Twitch for how they handle bans. “What Twitch does is they don’t link you the clip you get banned for. Because then you will review this clip, and find reasons why this ban is [stupid],” he began.

The personality then criticized the platform for taking his rant about voice chat in Valorant out of context. “[Twitch] said context is everything, then f**king context the part where I’m referring to people without voice chat as Russians, and not their ethnicity.”

Forsen revealed that he had actually appealed the ban and wrote to the company. “I said sure, maybe this should be a one day ban or whatever. Not a f**king two week ban for that s**t, dude!”

He then gave a morbid example of having done something worse before and getting into less trouble. “Mother f***ker, I’ve shown a corpse on stream, alright? And I got like one day ban for that s**t, dude.”

The popular streamer reiterated that he was talking about voice chat problems in Valorant. “I wanted to clarify that they did not have voice chat. So I said Russians, instead of people without voice chat.” He then hit out at the employee that banned him.

“I’m not apologizing for anything. I didn’t do anything wrong. It was a [stupid] ban by a [mod] on Twitch. I don’t know who, but this guy should review his own f**king guidelines. Because context is indeed everything.”

The streamer argued that everyone watching his broadcast knew the context with which he was mentioning Russians. “Literally every single one knew what I was referring to!” he exclaimed.

Regardless of what the streamer’s intentions were behind the words he used, Twitch decided to ban his account from the platform for a whopping two weeks.

Thankfully, for fans of the Swedish personality, the suspension is finally lifted. Punishments aside, he continues to crush it, pulling in over 1.3 million followers to his channel.

TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio has lost 500,000 followers within the space of two days, with people unfollowing on mass after comments about her follower count that many are calling “ungrateful.”

Charli started her TikTok account in 2019, and within the space of a year went from ordinary teenager to global social media star, securing brand deals and collaborations with some huge celebrities.

The 16-year-old is currently miles ahead of other TikTok accounts on the road to 100 million followers, and was set to reach the milestone very soon. However comments that she made about her follower count have caused a setback.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivalled success on TikTok.

In a November 16 video with James Charles and her family, Charli said about the impending follower milestone, “I wish I had more time! Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

James Charles rebutted “was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” with Charli replying “I was just saying like, even numbers,” while sticking out her tongue at the camera with a smile.

While the interaction appeared to have simply been a joke, the comments from the young star certainly ruffled some feathers among fans. People called Charli out for being “ungrateful,” and said that “she deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her.”

This caused an influx of people to unfollow the star, and where she was initially creeping up at a steady pace towards the big 100 million, she’s now found herself heading back in the opposite direction.

Prior to the backlash, Social Blade shows Charli’s highest follower count as being 99.4 million, but at the time of writing it has dropped to 98.96 according to livecounts.io, leaving her at a loss of just over 500,000 followers.

In celebration of her hitting 99 million on November 16, Charli tweeted that “I am so incredibly thankful for every single one of you! You all have changed my life with all of the support and love you give to me!”

While her comments seemed to be just a poorly timed joke, it certainly has frustrated some of her followers, and has proven to be a setback on her road to 100 million.
