Korean Twitch streamer Velvet_7 broke down in tears during a broadcast on Tuesday, October 1, after receiving a third ban on her channel, only for it to be lifted an hour later by the platform.

The streamer has already had major issues with the platform, receiving an indefinite ban back in August for “sexually suggestive content,” something which she denied, explaining that she made sure she wore appropriate clothing and changed up the variety of her streams.

After five weeks, Twitch admitted that she had been banned by mistake and was reinstated, but for Velvet, the issues with her Twitch channel are seemingly ongoing, with her account taken down briefly on October 1.

In an emotional stream following the reinstatement of her channel, Velvet explained that the reason for her latest ban was for using hate speech.

“So I was streaming today, and I got banned for using a hateful slur,” she explained. “I didn’t know what that meant. I was talking about it on YouTube and suddenly I got unbanned from Twitch. I don’t know what’s going on.”

The shock and stress of the situation ultimately became too much for Velvet, who broke down in tears during her broadcast, after spending an hour uncertain if she would ever get her channel back, or what had led to its removal.

After calming down, Velvet explained why she was so upset by the ban, telling her stream: “The reason why I was panicking is because I was very, very sad and very, very confused about my suspension. I was very scared.”

The streamer continued: “Suddenly I got unbanned, I didn’t know if it was true or not, and I didn’t really do anything. I just try to do my best. I don’t talk about hate speech.”

For streamers, losing access to their channel means more than just no longer being able to broadcast to their viewers, but becomes a major issue for those who rely on the platform to earn a living.

Velvet admitted that during her five-week ban she received no payments from Twitch, and upon her return, she had lost almost all of her paid subscribers, leading to even more monetary issues.

Dexerto has reached out to Twitch for comment on the situation regarding Velvet_7.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
