A Twitch streamer has been banned for seven days from the website for telling a teammate in Fortnite they would “go to hell” if they didn’t accept Jesus into their life.

Twitch streamer Dr. Witnesser, who works to “bring the gospel to gamers” according to his profile, has been banned for seven days from the platform for apparently telling a non-christian child he was going to hell if he didn’t accept Jesus into his life.

Dr. Witnessser tweeted on July 13 accusing Twitch of being part of the “#cancelchristianity culture” for banning him for “talking about what the Bible says on stream.”

Dexerto couldn’t find any rule in the Twitch ToS or Community Guidelines that specifically forbids proselytizing on the platform, but it may have been the way Dr. Witnesser went about his preaching that nabbed him the seven-day suspension – and a fair amount of backlash on social media, including from Fortnite pro and streamer Brett ‘Dakotaz’ Hoffman.

Apparently, the incident that got Dr. Witnesser banned happened during a Fortnite game when he was put on the same team with a young Muslim player, who eventually got into discussing their beliefs with him.

“If you’re denying what scripture says,” Witnesser explained, “you’re denying the hundreds of prophecies that were fulfilled through Jesus.”

“In the Muslim culture, we don’t really talk about that,” his teammate replied, to which Witnesser answered, “You don’t really talk about it because you don’t believe it.”

“Forget the fact that it’s America dude,” he said when his teammate again tried to point out the differences between their and Witnesser’s beliefs. “It’s Christianity in general, it doesn’t matter if I’m in America. Christianity is all over the world. So look, if you were to die in your sins today, you would be sentenced to hell.”

As we mentioned earlier, there doesn’t seem to be anything in the Twitch ToS or Community guidelines that forbids what Dr. Witnesser was doing on his stream, but it may have been the way he went about it that rubbed the streaming platform the wrong way.

In any case, Dr. Witnesser doesn’t seem discouraged by the temporary ban, and will apparently be taking his work to D.Live in the meantime – but whether he’ll end up returning to Twitch once his ban is over remains to be seen.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
