Popular female cosplayer Liz Katz was banned on Twitch on October 28, with reasons seemingly unknown.

Fans were first alerted to the cosplayer’s suspension on October 28 when a Twitter account named ‘Twitch Partner Bans’ tweeted out that her channel was banned.

“Twitch Partner "lizkatzofficial" has been banned!” the tweet read, which was confirmed by a visit to her streaming page, which displayed the classic “That content is unavailable” error message.

Liz herself seemed to be surprised by the ban, as she replied to the tweet with “WTF!?” – An ample indication that Twitch hadn’t informed her of her channel’s suspension.

A fan asked, “How?” to which she replied, “How indeed.  That’s what I’m gonna find out,” alongside a gif from Nintendo’s Detective Pikachu movie.


Five hours after the initial tweet, it appeared as though the model had gotten no answer from Twitch, as she revealed that she still had no idea why she’d been banned from the streaming service.

“My Twitch was just me fully clothed sitting at my desk playing games,” she said in reply to a user who told her not to trust the platform with any forms of “adult” content.

Liz is known for a more risque form of cosplay, something for which Twitch has banned users over before. However, she’s adamant she was wearing an ordinary outfit when streaming, which doesn’t break any rules.

When not on the platform, her outfits prove to be popular with fans, and she’s debuted many from popular video games such as Final Fantasy, Pokemon, and Borderlands 3 – a game she even had a small voice acting role in.

With the cosplayer serving a suspension from Twitch for now, she’s still thriving in popularity on Instagram, where she boasts almost a million followers.
