Popular Twitch streamer Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani has responded after a clip of TSM president Leena Xu went viral during his April 25 broadcast.

Myth was among the first few Fortnite players signed to TSM in 2018, alongside the likes Hamlinz and Daequan, and has since gone on to build a massive fan base of over 6 million followers on his Twitch channel.

During his April 25 broadcast, the popular streamer decided to entertain viewers by inviting TSM President Leena Xu to cut his hair due to the current lockdown restrictions, which resulted in hilarity for everyone involved.

Towards the end of his stream, however, a clip of Leena made it’s way to Reddit, titled “Leena’s Shirt too Short” as she had a slight wardrobe malfunction, which instantly went viral.

Myth responded to the post after his stream had ended, providing some context for those viewing the post and explained that it was an accident.

“Leena doesn’t really stream much at all and the camera was at the wrong angle.” he admitted,” I really just want to make sure y’all don’t go assuming the wrong thing about her.”

“It would be a shame if people I invite to my stream decide to never come back on for small incidents like this,” he added, calling for fans not to be harsh on Leena’s mistake.

Although it is unlikely to result in a suspension for the TSM star, he has still deleted the April 25 broadcast from his channel.

However, following Alinity’s recent ban for her wardrobe malfunction, it is understandable for Myth to take precautionary measures to ensure that his channel does not receive the same punishment.

Despite defending Leena’s on stream incident, Myth had no excuse for her haircutting abilities during the broadcast, later memeing her handiwork on Twitter by posting a video jokingly bragging about his new cut.

Twitch bans disgraced YouTuber Mini Ladd

Twitch has banned Craig ‘Mini Ladd’ Thompson’s channel from their platform months after the YouTuber had confessed to inappropriate advances to underage fans.

Mini Ladd has gone silent on social media and YouTube since his second video addressing the allegations against him went live. In it, the embattled content creator said he was looking forward to a better year in 2021 after giving his side of the story.

But now Mini Ladd’s of over 755,000 followers on Twitch has been deactivated and his Partner status has reportedly been revoked, suggesting that the company has levied a permanent ban towards him.

This was the first ban that his channel, spelled ‘MiniLaddd,’ has accrued and it could be the last after his confession on the allegations received massive backlash from the community.

About two months after Mini Ladd’s last YouTube video called ‘My Apology’ on December 28, Twitch made the decision to remove the channel from its listing on February 23.

According to esports journalist Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, a spokesperson for Twitch provided the following statement in reference to Mini Ladd’s ban from the platform: “We take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service.”

This could be in response to the allegations Mini Ladd faced of grooming and messages to fans who were underage at the time.

In talking about the allegations, the YouTuber confirmed that he had sent people, namely Halley and Ash, things that “were just not okay.” That video was met with negative reception from people who thought it was disingenuous considering the other response he made on the subject called ‘clearing the air’ in September 2020.

Mini Ladd has not uploaded on any of his channels in 2021, though in his last video he suggested he wanted to create more content throughout the year.

Mini Ladd hasn’t uploaded to YouTube, Twitch, or social media since his last apology video.

On his main channel, that he’s had since 2011, Mini Ladd had acquired over 5 million subscribers with about another 1.5 million subs on his other profiles.

Though he took a break from Twitch around 2019, Mini Ladd had resumed his streams as late as June 2020, around the same time of his first apology in light of the allegations against him.

It’s unknown if Mini Ladd will attempt a return to content creation but, in light of his Twitch ban, it’s unlikely he’ll return to the live streaming platform.
