Mitch Jones is a popular streamer on Twitch, known for his humorous IRL streams and the shenanigans that occur during his broadcasts – but one of his streams resulted in a quick ban due to racist content.

While Jones is known across the IRL streaming scene for his outrageous antics and over-the-top interactions with other streamers, one of these interactions saw his channel banned on September 20, after he accidentally leaked his private Discord messages.

Although it’s never a good idea to expose private conversations with persons who might not consent to having their personal business aired out for all to see, Jones’ Discord chat contained a racial slur – a slur that he, himself, had typed out toward another user, which viewers could see for a split second before he closed the window.

Unsurprisingly, Jones’ account was quickly suspended following the debacle, with searches for his channel on Twitch yielding nothing at the time of writing.

However, those weren’t the only messages leaked during his September 20 stream: the IRL star likewise exposed his Twitter DMs, which showed possible beef between himself and fellow streamer ICE_POSEIDON.

“Thanks for calling me fake after I helped…” a preview for POSEIDON’s message reads, followed by even further potential drama with streamer Mizkif, who wrote, “I don’t even want that exposure anymore.”

This wouldn’t be Jones’ first ban from Twitch, either: the streamer was also met with a week-long ban from the site after streaming while driving during a June 12 broadcast – a ban that he ultimately agreed with.

Rather than fighting the ban, Jones claimed that he “completely agreed” with Twitch’s action on the matter and admitted that he was “putting myself and others in danger, and I need to be more responsible.”

Unlike his previous ban, Jones has yet to publicly address his latest suspension at the time of writing.

Twitch likewise has not confirmed the direct reason for his September 20 ban – but after exposing himself for using racist language, it comes as little surprise to fans and critics alike that a suspension was not far behind.


Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
