Hentai artist who slammed Twitch’s ‘hypocrisy’ has been banned

French Hentai artist ‘Sareui’, who recently criticized Twitch’s ‘double standards’ regarding “sexually suggestive content,” has been banned.

Twitch is host to a plethora of different streaming channels, from gaming, to art, and other varying forms of entertainment. This makes every community on the streaming platform unique, and can help niche streamers find their corner of the internet to promote themselves on.

However, one creator on the platform, Saruei, has been criticized by Twitch for the “sexually suggestive” nature of her content, which is primarily Japanese hentai art. She spoke out against the platform’s treatment of her channel, and received a three-day ban afterwards.

Why was Saruei banned?

During a September 16 stream, Saruei read out an email she received from Twitch staff live on stream regarding her channel getting banned. 

“Some of your drawings are not in adequacy with the rules of the platform, including subjective / sexualized poses,” the email said. “The angle of the drawings focus on the butt in particular.”

She was also warned about some of her stream titles, and to not include phrases like “lewd art” in the future.

The Twitch representative handed down the ban at the end of the email, with a slight little disclaimer at the end.

“I was also informed by the moderation team that you have been judged recently on the content explained above, and you are going to receive a three-day ban, which should start in the coming hours. The content of this email – oh, I shouldn’t have spoken about this on stream.”

Saruei’s channel is yet to be banned, but given the wording of the email, should go down in the next few hours.

Twitch: SarueiSaruei’s channel is still up at this point in time, but that may change in the coming hours.

What has Saruei said about Twitch?

The artist recently spoke out about Twitch’s ‘double standards’ regarding artists and IRL streamers on the platform.

“There’s f***ing girls squatting in front of the webcam, showing off their ass,” she ranted, about how some IRL streamers are seemingly treated differently to the rest of the community.

She continued with Twitch’s comments about her own art, which the platform deemed too sexual. 

“They didn’t specify, that’s why they warned me as it’s my first time getting a warning from them. I hope it won’t happen again because I asked them what is the problem with these drawings? Is it the clothing or the pose? What is against Twitch guidelines? I need to know!” 

Twitch’s Community Guidelines state that streamers attire must be appropriate for a public place, and this might extend to art created on the platform, as Twitch looks to promote a safer image.

While some of Saruei’s art might not fall inside of the guidelines, she has raised a fair point about how Twitch handles some streamers differently to others, and how some of the platform’s rules need to be clarified.

We will update this piece with new information as it comes to light.

Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
