Twitch streamer ‘AndyPyro’ is accusing the platform of banning him over a false report of allegedly streaming in a washroom.

On June 26, the Finnish streamer was banned on for the second time on the site this month. The first time was allegedly for giving his camera to a viewer who “couldn’t keep the camera out of [his] beautiful buttocks” while drinking shots.

While Andy accepted his first ban admitted to taking his punishment “like a man,” this new suspension has left the streamer frustrated.

Taking to Twitter to protest his innocence, the streamer revealed he had been banned for a whopping fourteen days for allegedly recording in a public washroom.

According to Andy, it “never f**king happened” and he was banned over a false report.

“We went go-karting, and there’s locked doors for your f**king property that you leave before you go go-karting,” he explained while sitting inside of his car.

Speaking with Dexerto, Andy claimed he was in a lobby-like area before going karting, and not a public restroom.

Andy says Twitch banned him over a “false report”

He added, however, that there were two different situations; one involving a private restroom in a town and another time in a locker room, though they don’t seem connected to this current ban.

“What the actual f**k? Fourteen days for a false report of being in a washroom or invasion,” he continued. “It was a public space, we had every permission to record there. Thank you.”

In a follow-up tweet, Andy wrote that he was “logging off” and wished his viewers a nice summer. “I [would] rather be not streaming than take stupid chances to be banned permanently just because some assholes wanna see other people [suffer].”

Andy believes he was falsely reported out of jealousy. “As I’m the biggest streamer in Finland, this is the country of jealousy,” he said. “If I make a mistake, people take advantage of it.”

Twitch has a zero-tolerance policy about streaming in bathrooms. Most notably, legendary streamer Dr Disrespect was banned after he streamed in a washroom at E3 2019.

It will be interesting to see if Twitch reevaluates its decision to ban AndyPyro for fourteen days, but so far, it’s looking like he will have to live with taking a fortnight off of streaming.

Twitch streamer Jinny stunned as man tries to sell her drugs on stream

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
