Four Korean supermodels were banned on Twitch on August 18 after a risque poolside stream went viral and became the most watched channel in the ‘Just Chatting’ category. 

One of the more popular categories on Twitch is ‘Just Chatting’ where streamers can talk to their audience. The category is also often a host of bizarre and unsavory things.

On August 18, a Korean channel featuring several models rolling around in bikinis and pushing their stream towards the NSFW territory caught the eyes of many and Twitch wasn’t happy about it.

The Korean models got banned

Four Korean models named ‘sooflower’, ‘addielyn9’, ‘chobiman0125’ and ‘damicos’, undressed to their bikinis, and streamed around a swimming pool, while interacting with their growing audience.

During the stream, the women posed suggestively, and at one point three of them got into the water behind some glass, and pressed their body against it. The broadcast quickly gained an audience, and even hit over twenty-seven thousand viewers, shooting it to the top of the ‘Just Chatting’ category.

Despite the stream being hosted on sooflower’s channel, Twitch took steps to ban each individual model’s own channel that participated in the poolside broadcast.

This led some users to decry the move, saying that other Twitch personalities have done poolside streams before.

Although the streaming platform bases bans on context and intent, it’s unclear how long their ban is for, as violations of the Community Guidelines can range from a 24 hour ban all the way up to a month.

People were shocked

Popular Twitch personality Tyler ‘Trainwreckstv’ Niknam, ranted about the models stream, saying it was shameless during his August 18 broadcast. “It’s absolutely shameless. It’s like the mannerisms, the behavior. All of it shameless,” he said.

Another Twitch personality ‘m0xxy’ was in a chat with a group of people when he watched the korean models.

A user in the chat asked “M0xxy, you do know there are sites where you can see those kind of girls naked, right?” to which another person replied, “Yeah but this is better, because I see Twitch emotes” which caused the streamer to break out in laughter.

Twitch will often issue bans to channels that violate its Community Guidelines, but it’s unclear most of the time how long the restriction is for unless the streamer gets told themselves and announces it publicly.

In this case, none of the models have commented at the time of writing.

Popular YouTuber Ethan Dolan has revealed on Instagram the details of his long-term relationship with girlfriend Kristina Alice, who he reconnected with this week after spending most of quarantine apart.

Ethan and his twin Grayson originally rose to popularity on the video app Vine in 2013, and have since gone on to produce content on their highly successful YouTube channel with over 11 million subscribers.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
