Popular Overwatch streamer Fareeha Andersen hit back at Twitch after receiving a warning for violating Twitch’s Community Guidelines by hosting a “lingerie” stream.

Twitch partner and popular Overwatch streamer Fareeha was not too happy she was given a warning for violating the Community Guidelines on the streaming platform.

The DPS main argued against the warning’s claim that she was wearing lingerie on Twitter and re-sparked the debate with how the streaming platform enforces its rules, particularly with the clothing guidelines.

Warned for wearing “lingerie” 

The Overwatch streamer posted a screenshot of an email she received from Twitch on Twitter on September 14, which said she was “recently reported for breaking Twitch Community Guidelines” and it listed “underwear” and “lingerie” as the reason.

The email then informed her that the VODs that were reported had been deleted to “avoid further reports” and then said that she would be on a probation period for the next 90 days. The Gen.G streamer is not allowed to be a part of promotional activities until it is lifted.

Fareeha decided to hit back at the streaming platform and tweeted “Because workout clothes and showing midriff=lingerie” and uploaded a picture of the clothes she was wearing that was considered so risque that it violated the guidelines.

The Overwatch streamer followed up by saying that she doesn’t “even own lingerie” and that all she has is “giant ass sports bras” which doesn’t show off any cleavage, before cracking a joke: “As if I had any LOL.”

She then argued that the warning didn’t make much sense, given that not only do her clothes not show much skin, but that her on stream camera is “always shoulders and up.”

Fareeha then made the observation that you “can see more t*t” just by going outside and walking among the general public.

While it’s unclear if she was mass reported by trolls, the Twitch personality is currently on probation as of the time of this article.

Fareeha is a popular Overwatch streamer for Gen.G Esports, and boasts almost 70,000 followers on the platform as of September 14.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
