Twitch streamer Ali ‘Gross Gore’ Larsen has been banned from Twitch for 30 days in the aftermath of mounting sexual harassment and physical assault allegations.

In the days following RuneFest 2018, which took place October 5-6, multiple attendees came forward with accusations towards Gross Gore of both sexual harassment and physical assault.

While Gross Gore denied such claims, saying that any of his behavior could be contributed to his “flirty personality,” many wondered whether Twitch would hand out a ban of some sort in response to the allegations.

Just 10 days after the accusations surfaced, Gross Gore has announced he had been handed a 30-day ban from Twitch.

Moreover, since Twitch bans also dictate that banned streamers can’t appear on any Twitch-related stream whatsoever, Gross Gore will also be unable to attend TwitchCon in San Jose, California on October 26-28.

In a video that has since been deleted from his now-inactive Twitch account, Gross Gore states that his ban was almost permanent, but someone at Twitch stepped in to prevent that from happening.

It appears that his ban, however, doesn't stem from the allegations made against him, but rather due to videos from RuneFest that showed Gross Gore crawling on his knees that had been "deemed as harassment."

Gross Gore's most recent banning from Twitch marks the second time the streamer has earned an extended ban from the platform, as he was previously banned for harassment allegations back in 2016.
