Twitch reverses Auronplay ban after suspension for bizarre reason

Spanish Twitch streamer and YouTuber, Raúl Auronplay Álvarez, was banned from the Amazon-owned streaming platform on September 25 — before Twitch reversed their decision in only 20 minutes.

Auronplay is one of the most popular streamers on all of Twitch, boasting 4.6 million followers, in addition to his 25-million subscribers on YouTube.

So, it came as a shock, both to himself and his millions of fans, when his Twitch channel was suspended out of the blue on September 25.

Why was Auronplay banned from Twitch?

In response, he wrote on Twitter: “streamer friends: do not watch wedding videos HAHAHAHA a boy has shown his a** to the man who was filming the wedding.”

Presumably, this was the reason for the suspension — showing a video in which someone exposed themselves to the camera.

However, for reasons unknown, Twitch instantly reversed the suspension — after only 23 minutes. This was recorded by Twitter bot ‘StreamerBans,’ which tracks moderation actions taken against partnered Twitch streamers.

Clearly, Auronplay himself was somewhat bemused by the ordeal, and mocked a troll suggesting he had been unbanned because he had ‘contacts’ at Twitch.

Why exactly Twitch reversed the ban is unclear. The platform does not comment on community guideline violations to respect the privacy of users, but presumably, the initial suspension was simply made in error.

With his channel now reinstated, Álvarez is free to return streaming to his 4.6 million followers on Twitch.

It’s not the first time that Twitch has issued peculiarly short suspensions to big name streamers. In fact, it’s believed that TimTheTatman holds the record for the shortest ban ever, unbanned after less than 10 minutes.

It’s possible that these bans are the work of automatic moderation, and so are quickly overturned when a human eye is cast on them. Although, this does raise concerns for smaller streamers, who are perhaps not able to appeal their ban and have a response as quickly as a partnered broadcaster.

But, with countless people now streaming at any given time of Twitch, and growing fast, it becomes increasingly difficult for the platform to moderate it all.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
