UPDATE August 28 4:05pm PST

h2_gucio has been unbanned on Twitch as of August 28. 


During a Twitch broadcast on August 26, Polish streamer ‘h2_gucio’ was browsing Wikipedia to look up a medical term when he was suddenly banned from the platform.

Twitch has had its fair share of controversies in 2019, that has left many feeling like the streaming platform has been unfair in how it enforces its rules and issues bans.

On August 26, a Polish streamer by the name of ‘h2_gucio’ was browsing Wikipedia during his broadcast, and was banned almost instantly after a medical photo popped up – though it isn’t confirmed to be the reason why.

Banned after looking at Wikipedia

The Polish streamer was reacting to infomercials for his audience when he came across one that mentioned baby powder. Seeing as English isn’t his first language, he didn’t understand what it was so he turned to Google for the answers.

Upon reaching the Wikipedia page for the baby powder, the streamer looked at the definition which explained that it is used to prevent diaper rash. The term was hyperlinked to another page, so wondering what that was, he clicked it.

After clicking the link, a medical photo of a baby’s bottom popped up,which showed what diaper rash looks like in real life. The photo startled the streamer who did not expect such a brash image.

The photo was only shown on stream for less than a second as h2_gucio screamed and immediately closed out of the page as quickly as possible, looking visibly surprised by what was shown. Shortly after, his channel was banned by Twitch. 

This isn’t confirmed as the reason why, but the photo could have been seen as a violation of Community Guidelines.

Not the first time Twitch has taken issue with medical ‘nudity’

Twitch has clashed with users over medical ‘nudity’ before. On July 24 Twitch partner ‘HeatheredEffect’ breastfed her baby on stream, and the clip was removed after having over 20k views

The streamer called out the platform, who later reversed the decision, and stated that they would now allow breastfeeding on broadcasts.

Although it’s unclear how long the ban will be for, breaking Community Guidelines can result in suspensions ranging from 24 hours up to 30 days. We have reached out to Twitch for further comment.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is once again putting his wealth to great use by letting fans literally send pictures and videos to the moon after buying space on a NASA rover.

On January 24, the YouTube star announced that fans can start sending him their content in the form of photos or videos, and he will put them on an official NASA rover. The only catch is that it costs $10 to do so and videos need to be just one second long.

“Later this year NASA is putting a rover on the moon and I managed to buy storage space on it. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys put whatever you want on the moon,” MrBeast said in a follow-up to his announcement tweet.

In a video detailing the new project on his website, Donaldson explains how he thought it would be cool to create the world’s first digital time capsule.

“Every single one of you that puts something on the moon will get a certificate of authenticity,” he elaborated. “So, for decades to come you can prove to people that you literally put something on the moon.”

According to MrBeast, the possibilities are endless (as long as it’s legal) with fans being able to put a picture of their mom, dog, Elon Musk, or the three together.

“This is your first and possibly only chance to ever put a photo or video on the moon,” he added. “I genuinely need your help to help preserve humanity.”

How to enter

Basically, how it works is really straight forward. All fans have to do is follow these instructions.

First, head on over to MrBeast’s site and select which bundle you want, as some more expensive options come with a T-shirt or hoodie.

Next, pay to add partake in the experience and select what video or photo you want to go to the moon and upload it to MrBeast’s site.

Making it to the moon has never been easier.

That’s it, you’re done. MrBeast’s team will load the content into a “moon-ready” harddrive and NASA will send the hard drive to the moon.

If you know anyone who is really interested in space, this could be a really cool surprise for them. Go ahead and reach for the stars.
