Update (July 21): Roughly 24 hours after his surprise ban from Twitch, Sodapoppin has been reinstated on the platform. Following a sarcastic apology video from the mega-popular streamer, the Amazon-owned platform reversed its decision on July 21. The original story is as follows.

Popular Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris has been handed a suspension from the streaming platform, however, the reason behind the ban is unclear. 

As Twitch OGs go, Sodapoppin is one of the biggest. The popular variety streamer has been streaming since 2012, amassing over 2.7 million followers in that time thanks to his entertaining and unique content.

He can usually be found dominating a game’s section all by his own given that he has a tendency to play titles that not every streamer wants to try out.

Yet, those game will have to wait a little bit as his Twitch channel received a temporary suspension on July 20. Though, instead of being disheartened by it, Sodapoppin decided to have a little fun with the ban.

Sodapoppin has climbed up the Twitch ranks to become one of the platform’s biggest streamers.

As his fans quickly speculated about his ban, noting that it probably came from his recent VR Chat stream given that he was streaming with roflgator, who also received a ban – Chance responded on Twitter.

“Haha I know why I was banned and u don’t :)” he tweeted, before following it up with a jokey apology video. In his video, the streamer apologized to his family, friends, and viewers for the misstep.

He also joked that, given he’s been in lockdown for a few months, he was desperate for “female attention” and had to go into VRChat. Yet, things seemingly got a bit out of hand and Twitch might not have taken too kindly to the content – even though Soda added that he and Twitch love each other. 

However, the streaming platform rarely comments publicly on bans, so it’s unlikely that they’ll change course here and back up any of what Sodapoppin said. 

Chance hasn’t been permanently banned either, so, his channel will more than likely be back dominating the charts within a day or so. It shouldn’t take all that long before he’s back on fans’ screens.

Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
