Popular Twitch streamer PayMoneyWubby has hit out at the streaming platform as his appeal goes ignored. 

IRL [In-Real-Life] streams are a popular trend on Twitch, with many streamers choosing to step away from games and take their broadcasts into the real world.

These come with certain risks, however, as the streaming platform has strict rules surrounding user content, especially when it comes to IRL broadcasts.  

PayMoneyWubby was banned by Twitch on November 15 for allegedly breaking one of those rules by streaming in a restaurant without permission from the owner. However, he claims that he did have permission and has been trying to contact the platform ever since.

PayMoneyWubbyPayMoneyWubby is allegedly being ignored by Twitch.

On November 19 he released a short update on Twitter, slamming the company for ignoring him. “It’s been nearly four days with no reply from Twitch… I was banned wrongfully on a whim and ghosted for half a week” he said.

PayMoneyWubby then added a final bit of smack talk, stating: “I love being placed in this awful stress limbo by a platform that claims to support creators.”

The IRL streamer was clearly disappointed with his ban and Twitch’s lack of response, and he isn’t the only one to be frustrated with the platform. Many streamers have received unfair bans from the platform, only for them to be overturned later.

Viperous and TFBlade are two examples of such situations, as they were banned for saying the n-word, only to have their bans overturned days later, when it was revealed they had said something completely different. 

For many of these broadcasters, a ban impacts their livelihood and ability to generate income, so it is understandable if they are upset with the platform, especially when the suspension is unjustified.

Fortunately for PayMoneyWubby, he also runs a successful YouTube channel with over 600,000 subscribers, giving him an option to stream on there instead.

As of writing, Twitch have still not responded to the streamer and he still has over a week of his ban to serve. He also hasn’t streamed on another platform during his ban, so he may just be taking a break, or preparing a big comeback.

YouTube sensation and former Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa has officially come out after uploading a TikTok that got the entire internet talking.

JoJo Siwa is a huge icon for young internet users around the globe. Best known for her colorful outfits, giant bows and larger-than-life personality, the 17-year-old has amassed an impressive 12 million YouTube subscribers with her positive messages and energetic original songs.

Despite sharing her life with the world, Siwa has been relatively quiet regarding her relationship status, with fans keeping a close eye on any potential suitors she uploads videos with.

Now, Siwa has turned the tables in a major way, after uploading a TikTok lipsyncing to Lady Gaga’s iconic LGBTQ anthem, ‘Born This Way.’

More specifically, JoJo sang along to the lyrics: “No matter gay, straight, or bi, lesbian, transgendered life / I’m on the right track baby, I was born to survive.”

A day after releasing her viral TikTok, Siwa has officially come out in a touching Tweet. In her post, JoJo wears a t-shirt that she received from her cousin, which boasts the words: “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.”

This announcement also comes a short time after her collaboration with LGBTQ TikTok content group Pride House, where she danced together with some of its members to Paramore’s ‘Ain’t It Fun.’

Siwa’s latest announcement has been met with a slew of positivity and support from her fans and fellow creators – but even before she made it official, several high-profile internet stars made sure to give her their well-wishes via TikTok.

“I’M SO HAPPY FOR YOU!” James Charles exclaimed.

“WELCOME TO THE FAMILY JOJO!” TikTok star Spencer commented.

“Happy for you JoJo,” YouTuber Bretman Rock added.

Commenters congratulate JoJo Siwa on coming out.

Before releasing her reveal on January 22, some fans weren’t so sure Siwa was actually coming out, as her initial TikTok had no caption and could have been a mere lipsync video with no hidden meaning, at all.

However, that doesn’t seem to be the case, anymore, as Siwa has put the “rumors” to rest. Congrats, JoJo Siwa – you’re on the right track, baby, you were born this way!
