Korean streamer leaves Twitch after ban, says she’s “lost all trust”

Popular Korean streamer ‘QueenMico’ has announced her move to a new livestreaming platform, AfreecaTV, after claiming she has “lost all trust” in Twitch Korea following multiple bans.

QueenMico was one of the most popular Korean streamers on Twitch, and was usually found broadcasting in the ‘Just Chatting’ section where she would bring in thousands of viewers to watch her play games such as Just Dance on stream.

The Korean streamer had amassed over 200,000 followers on the livestreaming site, when she was hit with her second Twitch ban on November 19 for reasons that she claims eluded her.

Instagram, mico__velyQueenMico was often found in the Just Chatting category on Twitch or dancing on stream.

After finding out that her channel was suspended from the platform, QueenMico vocalized her thoughts to her Instagram, with a post explaining: “I didn’t do anything wrong on stream but the channel was shut down once again.” 

“I don’t know what else I can do in this place where there’s a difference between Twitch’s headquarters and TwitchKorea’s opinion,” she expressed, apparently frustrated with the Moderation team’s ruling, “they can’t even give proper official opinions that everyone can understand.”

This is not the first time QueenMico has encountered issues with the Amazon-owned platform, as the Korean streamer had previously claimed that she had not received any subscription or advertising payments from Twitch since earlier in the year.

“I haven’t received any subscription/bit/advertising proceeds since March,” she stated, revealing in a previous post that she got little explanation for the lack of payment. “They did not explain why it was impossible.”

Despite apparently making her best efforts to get the issues resolved, the streamer announced that she would be moving platforms to stream on AfreecaTV after her latest ban, and expressed that she was willing to start from scratch on the new site.

“Since my first notice after this latest ban I decided I would not continue streaming on Twitch, I’ve already lost all trust” QueenMico announced, “I will start from zero again, and I will work hard to show you all a more fun and improved side.”

Many streamers have hit out at Twitch in the past for some of their unclear rulings, such as PaymoneyWubby’s recent skit about the site’s moderation team after receiving a ban for streaming in a restaurant – in his example, the issue was later reversed, allowing him to stream on the platform once again.

However, in QueenMico’s case, she has decided to cut ties entirely and up sticks to a new streaming platform.

Charli D’Amelio under fire for complaining about 95 million followers

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
