Rubius Twitch Ban

Spanish streamer Rubius was just briefly banned on Twitch again, his second ban in the last calendar year. Though now unbanned, there’s no telling what caused this temporary suspension on the platform.

Rubius made a name as one of the most popular Spanish-speaking streamers, amassing a huge audience of over 14 million followers on Twitch.

Best known for CS:GO play on stream, Rubius has recently dedicated a lot of hours into the recently-released Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Unfortunately, fans of Rubius were temporarily halted from following his adventures in Hyrule as the streamer was hit with a surprise Twitch ban on May 18.

Rubius gets hit second Twitch ban

Twitter account StreamerBans confirmed that Rubius was banned from Twitch on May 18, 2023 for an unknown reason. Some fans have speculated that the ban may have been related to co-streaming the BLAST Premier CSGO major without authorization, since he was watching the event right before the ban, but that is not confirmed.

Just under five hours later, however, and the ban was overturned. Rubius’ Twitch account is once again active with the mega-popular figure now able to stream on the platform.

Rubius was previously suspended in November 2022, after a miscommunication with SEGA led to a copyright strike on his channel for playing Sonic Frontiers too early.

But that ban only lasted a few hours, as his Twitch account was quickly restored and he returned to streaming later that day.
