Popular YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Quang Le was surprised after getting banned from Twitch following a controversial stream.

The successful YouTuber was making a strong comeback on Twitch with Fortnite and Just Chatting streams before the platform issued his channel its first ban in 2020 on April 8.

Although the precise reason for his ban is unclear, RiceGum recently streamed along with two women who agreed to kiss if the channel reached 21,000 viewers. A shot of a woman’s backside was briefly shown later on, but was quickly taken down by the streamer.

Although a popular YouTube, RiceGum has a shaky history on Twitch.

In fact, immediately after he saw that the woman’s stream changed from the front camera showing her face to the back camera showing her friend’s image, RiceGum scrambled to take it off from his feed.

“What? Wait, what?” RiceGum said in confusion. “Is that allowed [on Twitch]? Yo, stream, I apologize.”

The ban came swiftly after clips of that moment started spreading around YouTube and fail-threads that highlighted the sudden gaffe during his broadcast.

He was startled that the image appeared on his livestream, but encouraged his viewers to go to her Instagram Live to watch along with him instead.

After the incident, RiceGum didn’t think much of the mishap, saying: “No, they were wearing pants, guys. They were those short-shorts. Ain’t no ban, bro. What are you talking about?”

RiceGum was handed the ban less than a month after restarting his streams on Twitch in mid-March.

RiceGum was startled after the incident on his Twitch stream.

This isn’t the first time the streamer has been in hot water with Twitch. In 2014, he briefly showed an application that looks to have been a view-botting program during one of his broadcasts.

In 2018, he was banned for an unknown reason linked to either mentioning Ice_Poseidon in conversation or brandishing a BB gun on stream.

As with any suspension that Twitch hand out, no one knows how long RiceGum will be barred from streaming on the platform.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
