Twitch streamer Kacey ‘Kaceytron’ Caviness has sided with fellow streamers Esfand and Mizkif, after they were given a surprise ban on April 30 for making an “inappropriate joke” at a PAX East event in March.

Fans of the popular streamers were initially perplexed by the bans, as there seemed to be no apparent reason, but Esfand later explained the situation in a TwitLonger.

He explained that He and Mizkif had been talking with another streamer, who was “getting in [Mizkif’s] face and telling him to call her “daddy”, basically ‘faux-dom behavior’ for the sake of humor.”

Twitch / EsfandMizkif (left) and Esfand (seated) were banned for seven days on Twitch, seemingly out of the blue.

At one point, Mizkif shouted “she just sucked my dick!”, a comment they say was clearly made in jest, and that after the encounter neither streamer thought much of the situation. Days later, the streamer and Esfand cleared up the situation in private messages – at least Esfand believed it had been cleared up.

However, a legal team contacted Twitch about the incident, which resulted in both streamers receiving a seven day suspension – causing controversy in the community, with Kaceytron now weighing in.

“If you make a joke at someone that is sexual in nature you shouldn’t act surprised nor offended whenever they make a joke back”, Kaceytron posted, clearly referring the comments made by Mizkif and the anonymous streamer who reported them.

Despite many fans and other community members siding with Mizkif, the streamer himself is not looking for any pity. He stated that Esfand’s explanation of the situation wasn’t the whole story.

“I said WAY more than just that,” Mizkif explained, “I was completely out of line and for the love of god please do not take it out on anyone. It was my fault. There’s VODs for it somewhere, it was not just one comment, it wasn’t just one phrase, it was WAY MORE.”

Both Esfand and Mizkif are currently awaiting the end of their seven day suspension, which will reportedly cost them thousands of dollars in missed income.

xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
