A streamer has lashed out at Twitch for their ‘recent lack of consistency’ when doling out punishments across the platform. 

On September 9 it was reported that popular IRL streamer Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth‘ Siragusa had been banned from the streaming platform after accidentally exposing herself. This decision was rapidly overturned on September 12 when the controversial personality was reinstated on Twitch.

Without any form of explanation from Twitch admins, the figure was forgiven and handed her platform back while other streamers such as Fareeha Andersen, Overwatch content creator for Gen. G, have received consequences for far lesser offenses.

Fellow Twitch streamer ‘scarycheese62,’ has angrily reacted to the recent controversy, slamming his desk and unleashing a fiery tirade.

“F*cking Amouranth wears 10 times shorter shorts than that and nothing f*cking happens. [Andersen] is wearing workout shorts, basically men’s shorts dude. I don’t f*cking get it.”

The unlucky Overwatch streamer was met with a strong warning and a 90 day probation period on Twitch, following a seemingly innocuous IRL stream.

She recently fired back at the streaming platform in a viral Tweet. Joking that she doesn’t “even own lingerie.”

On the other side of the coin, Amouranth, one of the biggest IRL streamers on the platform, is constantly skirting the line of what is acceptable under Twitch guidelines. Yet even when she falters, arguably due to her popularity, she’s rarely met with appropriate consequences. 

The frustration on display in this hilarious clip is just one of numerous examples of Twitch admins largely missing the mark when it comes to properly enforcing the guidelines of the platform.

The Twitch community guidelines explicitly state that “sexually suggestive content or activities are also prohibited.”

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
