Twitch streamer banned after starting body paint stream too early

A Twitch streamer has had her account suspended after starting a body painting stream almost entirely topless, and has reacted angrily to the decision on social media.

Body painting on Twitch is somewhat of a grey area in terms of the community guidelines, as some believe streamers use it as a loophole to avoid bans for sexually suggestive content under the guise of art and creativity.

However, there are many body painting streamers who, with the exception of the paint, are effectively nude from the waste up regularly, and receive no disciplinary action from Twitch.

One such streamer, AriaNina, appears to have pushed the boundaries just slightly too far, after starting her stream with only a small area of paint covering her chest, which was otherwise entirely exposed.

The clip, which can be viewed here (NSFW), was circulated on social media, and later removed from Twitch, along with AriaNina’s channel.

Following her ban, AriaNina claimed that she believed “body painting with an actual artist” was allowed.

There is a specific section which addresses body painting in the Twitch community guidelines, however it does stipulate that the “intent” of the content is taken into consideration.

Body painting, dancing, and other creative activities that do not violate our policies are welcome on Twitch. If flagged as potential sexually suggestive content, we will consider the context and intent of the content to determine whether the reported conduct violates our policies.

AriaNina has since said that if she is not unbanned on Twitch, she will take her body painting activities elsewhere and stream them on YouTube instead.

Popular drama page TikTok Room delighted its 1.8 million followers this week when, on November 25, they announced on their Instagram that they would be hosting their very own awards show!

The post also announced that voting would be on Friday 27 November, with the awards then streaming tonight on Saturday 28 November.

Details surrounding what the award categories were was initially vague, with the account teasing more information throughout the week before opening the polls on Friday for fans to vote for some of their favorite TikTokers in various categories.

Despite the categories remaining unclear prior to voting being open, that didn’t stop some of TikTok’s biggest stars endorsing the awards and encouraging fans to vote for them.

Among other famous faces like Skai Jackson, Nessa Barrett, and Jacob Sartorius, Sway House star Bryce Hall endorsed the awards in a video, joking that he was probably nominated in the “most problematic” category, while Charli D’Amelio, who recently reached 100k followers on the TikTok, told her fans that “there is a special award show on Sunday” and encouraged them all to vote.

Although some fans found that there was difficulty submitting their votes – with TikTok Room explaining in an Instagram post that this was due to heavy traffic on the form- by the time the polls were closed, TikTok Room announced that over 500,000 votes were cast after teasing fans earlier that day with just how close some of the categories were.

What are the categories?

The TikTok Room awards consists of 28 categories in total, and are as follows:

The running order of these categories is not yet clear.

When do the TikTok Room awards start?

While the awards themselves start at 8pm Eastern Standard Time, TikTok Room have announced that there will be a pre-show from 6pm Eastern Standard Time.

It isn’t quite certain how exactly the awards will be broadcast, although TikTok Room did confirm to a fan in the comments section that they would be posting the results on their Instagram page throughout the night.

So, to watch the awards, your best bet is to keep an eye on TikTok Room’s Instagram account!
