Popular Twitch streamer Asmongold’s backup account, Zackrawrr, has now been unbanned after it was hit with a surprise suspension.
On June 10, 2022, Asmongold’s backup account on Twitch, Zackrawrr was hit with a surprise suspension from the streaming platform.
Given that the MMO’s giant alt account isn’t partnered, the ban wasn’t picked up by the likes of StreamerBans, and was only noticed after some fans complained that they were unable to find it.
Asmongold has since responded to the ban in a series of tweets and a YouTube video. He explained that it was incurred for “hateful and unmoderated conduct” after a fellow player on Diablo Immortal posted a racial slur in-game chat.
When realizing that the slur was displayed on his stream, Asmon played it down so as to avoid giving the troll attention. However, Twitch interpreted this as the streamer “not adequately addressing the situation”.
Also–this was done less than 10 minutes after those messages occurred in chat

Asmon revealed that the ban was initially supposed to last for around 24-hours, but that has since been cut short by a fair few hours.
As of 10 am EDT on June 11, the ZackRawrr channel has returned to Twitch with full functionality – meaning you catch up on any of the VODs you may have missed when Asmon wasn’t streaming on his main channel.
Can Asmongold stream with his alt banned?
According to Twitch community guidelines, Asmongold would not be able to stream on his main account while his alt is banned from the platform as it would fall under suspension evasion.
It reads: “All suspensions are binding until expiration or removal upon successful appeal. Any attempt to circumvent an account suspension or chat ban by using other accounts, identities, or by appearing on another user’s account will also result in additional enforcement against your accounts, up to an indefinite suspension.”
Though, as long as both channels remain resuspended, the streaming star is fine to appear on either.
