PaymoneyWubby claims Pokimane’s lack of ban highlights Twitch ‘bias’

PaymoneyWubby has explained why he believes Twitch is “destroying lives” during a YouTube video titled “Twitch and their abuse of power.” In the same video, he uses fellow streamer Pokimane as an example to highlight the perceived favoritism when the platform hands out bans.

Following on from his return to the streaming platform, PaymoneyWubby or ‘Wubby’ as he’s also referred to, is making an effort to “expose” the behind the scenes processes at Twitch.

This comes after the American was banned for 14 days, for streaming in a restaurant – which Twitch moderators deemed to be an invasion of privacy – despite obtaining permission from the staff to stream inside the facility beforehand.

After jokingly offering Mixer to stream exclusively on their platform “to the tune of $5 million for five years,” Wubby seems intent on setting the record straight with their rival broadcasting counterpart, Twitch.

In the wake of his suspension (which was reduced from 14 days to five), the American uploaded a video to his YouTube channel on November 24. PaymoneyWubby states that Twitch currently has a number of issues with its processes and uses examples of other streamers on the platform to highlight what he believes to be favoritism.

Initially, Wubby compared his five-day ban to Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa’s three-day ban — which he described as: ”Literally the definition of a privacy concern.”

The Twitch star broke it down for his viewers: “Amouranth, who actually did the thing I was being accused of, got banned for three days. 

“Me, who didn’t do what I was accused of, completely innocent by Twitch’s own words, got banned for 14 days, reduced to five days! What the f**k is going on behind the scenes, Twitch?”

Later, the 24-year-old  proceeded to refer to Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys’ absence of ban after being baited into showing sexually explicit content on her channel during a live broadcast.

Timestamp for mobile viewers of 9:09. 

While on stream, Anys Googled the term “spunk” and revealed sexually explicit images to her audience, which Wubby described as being “so inappropriate, I literally have to blur it out.”

He continued: “Oh, you’re probably thinking that’s an indefinite ban, maybe reduced to two-and-a-half weeks? Oh, nothing happened. Twitch didn’t give a sh*t. Nothing happened to her. At the end of the day, no matter what you say, ‘well maybe she was spoken to behind the scenes’, I don’t give a fuck. This is called favoritism, this is called bias, and this completely bullsh*t to smaller streamers.”

By contrast, he points out that fellow Twitch streamer ‘Pokelawls’ received a three-day ban for showing “some dudes bare ass from the 1980s” while watching a music video on YouTube.

Wubby then placed both images side-by-side to emphasize the severity of ‘nudity’ shown, but further explained that Pokelawls’ ban was later lifted after a brief suspension.

“Doesn’t that make Twitch look even more stupid? It’s like they just don’t know what they’re f**king doing,” he said. 

In a DM conversation with Jeremy ‘Disguised Toast’ Wang, who recently moved from Twitch to Facebook Gaming, Wubby uncovered that Twitch allegedly gives certain streamers preferential treatment by ‘bending the rules’ should the situation require it. 

PaymoneyWubby (YouTube).Disguised Toast gave a ‘behind the scenes’ look into how Twitch treat their creators.

PaymoneyWubby closed out the video by stating that “Twitch will destroy your career in an instant and not give you the time of day… Long story short, Twitch fix your f**king s**t. You’re ruining people’s lives and you don’t seem to care.”

Despite his affliction with Twitch, Wubby has expressed that he’s keen to continue streaming on the platform. However, he said that should he jump ship, he’d want his faithful following to come with.

Bryce Hall puts Quen Blackwell on blast after Griffin Johnson TikTok drama

Following on from Quen Blackwell and Griffin Johnson’s social media clash, Bryce Hall has now jumped into the mix and lashed back at the original post that kickstarted the feud.

If you’re not up to speed on the latest TikTok kerfuffle, don’t stress. Here’s a quick refresher. Two days ago social media celeb Quen Blackwell reacted to a TikTok post featuring Bryce Hall and Addison Rae.

Their relationship has been hot and cold throughout most of the year. Blackwell took the opportunity to joke about the on-again, off-again couple, yelling “no” at the top of lungs in her own post. While Johnson was the first to take issue with her comedic reaction, Hall has now fired back as well.

Rather than calling her out on social media, however, Hall allegedly got in touch and hashed it out directly. It’s clear that things didn’t go down all too well between the pair as he’s since gone on to expose their private conversation.

“So I confronted her and talked about it,” he said. As it turns out, Blackwell was forthcoming with her intentions. “I only do this for likes and being relatable,” she explained, according to Hall.

“I get it, you’re just doing it for numbers. It had like 1.5 million likes, I get it,” Hall assured. As social media personalities, both have their own audiences and both create content to generate engagement. While that TikTok may have struck a nerve at first, it seemed as though they were able to get on the same page in their chat.

That mutual respect didn’t stand for all too long though. Blackwell claimed she wouldn’t do it again, though that wasn’t the case as she touched on the subject 24 hours later before deleting her videos. “It’s so fake,” Hall said in response.

“Now that she’s deleted the videos, we’re friends again. We’re gonna be like the rest of these social media people and just act as though nothing happens behind the scenes.”


Clearly not too pleased with how the drama unfolded, Hall can at least respect that Blackwell deleted her latest videos. At the time of writing, this seems to be the end of the controversy. Though it could all kick off once more if Blackwell goes back on her word yet again.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated if the latest TikTok drama continues to explode across social media.
