Streamer Boneclinks has hit out at Twitch after being mistakenly banned from the livestreaming platform without reason.

There have been many cases where streamers on Twitch claim that they have been mistakenly banned from broadcasting such as League of Legends star TFBlade’s incident which quickly was eventually reversed after being deemed a mistake.

Boneclinks was only just getting back into streaming after coming off a ban that was reversed the previous week when he found that his channel was suspended again.

The streamer revealed that he had not received any emails from Twitch’s moderation team when he was realized he was banned, and claimed that he was punished without even receiving a reason why. “Welp I’m banned again and received no email why at all. This is getting frustrating…”

Boneclinks later revealed that he had also been issuing support tickets in regards to his suspension, but had not received a response on that front either.

After the ban had been lifted on November 23, the streamer explained that he finally received an email from Twitch, expressing they were sorry for banning him and that his suspension was due to a mistake on the part of their moderation team.

Boneclinks hit out at Twitch, confirming that he shouldn’t have been banned and that it had lost him almost a week’s worth of revenue and channel growth for their mistake.

One of his fellow streamers, PaymoneyWubby has also experienced similar treatment and even mocked the livestreaming platform for some of their decisions when it comes to issuing bans to their users.

Richard Lewis is another who has been vocal about the inconsistent bans that Twitch staff have issued, comparing what the likes of what Alinity has done compared to other streamers on the site, during Trainwrecks podcast.

YouTuber and TikTok star Bryce Hall came under fire after uploading a video that showed himself attempting to break up a fight between the Sway House boys and a bystander — and now, he’s revealed his side of the story.

The video, originally taken on September 23, sparked outrage among Hall’s fanbase after being posted on October 4, with many critics calling out the influencer for what appeared to be bad behavior.

However, Sway House member Nick Bean clarified what took place in an Instagram Live stream, stating that the altercation had been his fault and that things ultimately ended on a happy note, while also claiming the incident was “misrepresented” by media outlets.

This didn’t stop some commenters from still finding fault with the situation — especially since a few choice homophobic slurs had been thrown out during the video.

Bryce Hall later told his side of the story during an episode of his “Capital University” podcast on October 7, seeming to confirm Bean’s version of events: A drunk Bean had tossed a traffic cone onto a nearby car, causing the owner to come out of a restaurant to assess the situation.

Bryce claimed that the car’s owner punched Bean in the face twice, leading to the all-out brawl seen in the video. Just like Bean’s statement, he claimed that the group made up in the end; but that wasn’t all he revealed.

The TikToker also explained why he’d even uploaded the video in the first place, stating that he wanted to get ahead of the media outlets to prevent any misinterpreting of the situation.

“We didn’t actually know that there was a video,” Hall admitted, referring to the now-viral clip originally taken from a paparazzi outlet. “I actually tweeted out the video, because I knew it was going to come out. I didn’t want the press articles to switch up the story at all. So I tweeted it out.”

At long last, Hall has finally cleared up the events leading up to the viral video; and while some fans are understanding, it doesn’t look like internet critics are willing to let this one go, regardless of his and Bean’s explanation.
