LIRIK in disbelief after Twitch remove his 'butt clench' emote – again

Twitch star Saqib ‘LIRIK‘ Zahid was confused when he discovered two of his emotes had been removed – one of which has been removed in the past for violating the platform’s rules.

Twitch partners have access to a lot of emote slots, leaving it up to them to fill them up with something their viewers will enjoy.

LIRIK, being one of the platform’s largest streamers, has access to all of the emote slots but it turns out that they weren’t a fan of two of his emotes, as they have since been removed.

Lirik, TwitterLirik is one of Twitch’s biggest streamers, all without a facecam.

What emotes are gone?

“Two emotes are gone, lirikLATE and lirikCLENCH,” LIRIK said. The clench emote does make sense as it violates Twitch’s rules of showing butts, but he and his chat quickly pointed out there are numerous butt-related emotes on Twitch.

“I was told by the Twitch gods, two emotes were against TOS and got removed or something,” he said. “There are so many ass emotes but there was something about this ass that triggered people.”

Twitch has strict rules for what’s allowed on their platform and all of the creators have to abide by those rules. 

Partnered streamers tend to have streamlined approval processes, meaning they can throw up a new emote and have it live almost immediately for viewers to use.

This allows emotes that break the rules to slip through the cracks, leading Twitch to seemingly remove an emote without warning. However, his clench emote has been removed before in the past. He tried to bring it back as lirikMONK, a play on the MonkaS emote, but it was also removed.

LIRIK likely won’t be facing a ban or anything of the sort here since it was just an emote that was removed so fans won’t have to worry about that.

What will be interesting to see is if LIRIK ends up reuploading the emote with some modifications so it doesn’t break any rules.

He tried to do this once before, but it still ended up violating the rules so who knows how he’ll try and get around another emote ban in the future.

Mike Majlak reveals why he’s broken up with Lana

Mike Majlak and Lana have been the sweethearts of the internet world for quite some time, but their relationship is officially over, with Mike Majlak breaking the news on YouTube.

Mike and Lana have been in a relationship together for ten months. It’s been a widely publicized roller coaster ride filled with ups and downs. However, it was one that many mutual fans loved to see.

It was also the only relationship Majlak has been involved in throughout the past decade. But sadly, not all relationships can stand the test of time, and the two of them have officially parted ways.

Mike Majlak broke the news in a YouTube video. “Never thought id ever put out a breakup video but this one was necessary,” he said. “I wanted the story told my way before others could tarnish what was an incredible relationship and part of my journey.”

In the video, Mike Majlak explains that he felt like the fans deserved an explanation since the breakup happened out of the blue. “There’s no one specific reason [for the breakup],” he said. “It wasn’t a loyalty thing.”

“The best thing about Amara [which is her real name] is that she’s so fiercely loyal,” he added. “I never once had to worry about her cheating [or] talking to any other guys. It was never about other guys.”

His comment immediately shuts down rumors and accusations that she cheated on him. It’s often the first thing people suspect when there’s a sudden breakup.

Instead, he claimed they were simply “two people who wanted vastly different things.”

“Amara was… obsessed with the idea of linear and traditional life and love,” he said. “She wanted to meet a guy, she wanted to settle down, she wanted to have a family and just live this kind of linear life.”

“That’s just not who I am,” he said. He also claimed she was “trying to facilitate the vision that she saw for the relationship, which was getting a house and moving in with her.”

However, while it made “made complete sense to her,” it didn’t to him, and it didn’t feel right to go ahead with it. 

In the end, there were too many signs that they wanted “two vastly different things in life” and “weren’t cut out to be together” and “go the distance.”

The breakup has been hard on them both, so to make things easier, they’ve been trying not to talk and keeping their distance.

It’s a sad end for one of the more beloved internet couples in recent times, but it’s certainly not a bitter one. The two of them have clearly thought long and hard about the decision.

In the end, it seems like calling it quits made the most sense in the long run, but they’ve parted ways on good terms.
