Twitch streamer banned after accidental game censorship fail

A Twitch streamer and esports caster has been banned from the platform after a game’s in-game censorship tool failed to work, and viewers got a little more than they bargained for.

Many partnered Twitch streamers have faced temporary bans from the platform for various reasons in the past, and it’s not an irregular occurrence, but something like this must be particularly frustrating for the broadcaster.

Through no real fault of his own, and having taken all the necessary precautions to prevent any issues, Phil ‘EE’ Visu found himself being penalized by Twitch after an in-game tool broke – and revealed a little too much of a character.

EE is a Smash and NBA 2K caster.

Posting to Twitter late on March 20, Visu went into more detail on the unfortunate run of events.

“Just got banned on Twitch because I played a game a viewer gave me that has censor nudity options and it didn’t censor a pair of [breasts],” he said before asking: “What is the point of the option?”

Obviously, there’s no clip available of the mishap due to Twitch’s terms of service, but it definitely sounds like a monumental mistake made from whoever the original game developer is.

You can definitely understand why Visu would be so annoyed by this ban, too. As mentioned in his tweet, with no esports work in the calendar for him, streaming on Twitch could have helped fill the gap and keep some money coming in while the ongoing global crisis continues to shut down events and communities.

There will be countless members of the esports and gaming communities that will be affected by this sudden crisis, so they’ll be making sure they’re extra cautious now if they plan on making income from streaming.

That said, given the fact that EE clearly didn’t intentionally forget to censor the game, Twitch might decide to revoke the ban if they look into it further.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
