Veteran streamer Kacey ‘Kaceytron’ Caviness has called on Twitch and its co-founder Emmett Shear to apologize to Velvet_7, who broke down in tears when her channel was banned mistakenly for a second time.

Velvet 7 is a Korean Twitch streamer who now lives in Canada, who had her channel suspended for five weeks in August for broadcasting “sexually suggestive content,” something which she denied.

The streaming platform admitted that they had banned her account by mistake and reinstated it, but the 22-year-old was brought to tears when her account was banned again on October 1, only for it to be reinstated an hour later.

Twitch: Velvet_7Velvet_7 was distraught when her account was banned and reinstated on October 1.

During her October 1 broadcast, Kaceytron, who became a Twitch sensation back in 2013 thanks to her League of Legends streams, stood up for Velvet_7, defending her and calling on the platform to issue a public apology to the Korean.

“Basically, she had been streaming, and all of a sudden she got banned,” the 26-year-old explained to her chat. “For racism and hate speech, and then an hour later they unbanned her. So she had like an hour where’s just freaking out and not understanding why.”

“Twitch is disgusting to me, I don’t know. I think, at the very least, Emmett Shear owes Velvet_7 an apology. A public apology. I think Twitch needs to publically apologize to Velvet, and Emmett Shear needs to as well. At the very least.”

For Velvet_7, the uncertainty surrounding her Twitch channel affects more than her ability to stream. The 22-year-old revealed that she didn’t receive any payments from Twitch throughout the duration of her five-week ban, despite it being an error. When she returned, most of her subscribers were gone.

Kaceytron is a true veteran of the streaming industry and has been a star on Twitch for over six years, finding success while playing Riot’s MOBA, and transitioning from that into a variety broadcaster who still draws thousands to her channel on a regular basis. 

Having spent so much time on the platform, Kacey believes that Twitch owe Velvet_7 an apology for the way she has been treated. Dexerto have reached out to Twitch for comment on the situation.


James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
