On April 8, Nicole 'BadBunny' notified her fans on Twitter that Twitch had suspended her from streaming for three days for apparently violating their Terms of Service and Community Guidelines.

In the tweet she shared the official email sent to her by Twitch: "Recent VOD of you and a friend in Just Chatting that involved you getting up from the couch and exposing your crotch area with coverage."

She didn't seem all too stressed out by her suspension, however, as she included the "smiling face with sunglasses" emoji in her tweet of the screenshot.

What kind of nudity did Badbunny show?

On April 8, when Badbunny announced that she had been suspended by Twitch, a Reddit user named 'InvincibleWarlord' posted a message that claimed she had shown her "side vag," or side of her vagina, on stream.

The post also included a link to a screenshot taken from the stream which shows the alleged nudity, although be warned that the image is NSFW before clicking it

What are Twitch's Terms of Service regarding streamer nudity?

Twitch's official Terms of Service includes a special section on Nudity and Attire, which claims that streaming is a "public activity" and therefore recommends creators to "wear attire that is appropriate public attire for a given context, intent, or activity."

The section also notes that nudity and intending to be sexually suggestive are banned, which includes the exposing or focus on male or female genitals, which appears to have been the case here.

Other cases of streamers being banned for NSFW content

Badbunny isn't the first streamer to get banned on Twitch for showing NSFW content on stream. Recently SweetSaltyPeach was suspended for a cooking stream during which viewers were able to see through her shorts.

January was a very active month for Twitch bans, starting off with a streamer being handed a suspension for getting a blowjob on stream, followed by another creator getting banned for starting her body painting stream a little too early.

Also, who could forget the infamous channel which was showing hardcore porn to thousands of viewers for nearly an hour before it was flagged and shut down.


We will update this article with more information as it becomes available.
