Popular French streamer Kamel 'Kamet0' Kabir was banned from Twitch after NSFW images appeared on his stream during a recent session of Twitch Sings.

Twitch streamers who run programs like text-to-speech [TTS] and media requests run the risk of being trolled by viewers who see the opportunity to get a highlight clip with their name on and grab it with both hands.

While many fans remain, for the most part, sensible with the additional stream elements, others forget all about the repercussions and aim to gain a few laughs. That, unfortunately, happened to Kamet0 as he was banned for something a viewer decided to show on-screen that was very much NSFW.

Kamet0 is one of the bigger French streamers on Twitch - regularly playing a variety of titles.

During his May 22 broadcast, the popular streamer was engaged in a round of Twitch Sings as viewers began subscribing and resubscribing to his channel. Yet, things took a wrong turn as the Twitch profile pictures for those accounts started appearing on the screen.

It didn’t take long for some jokers to take advantage of that. One account - DexterMiner60, which has also been removed from Twitch - dropped a resub and had their incredibly explicit profile image appear on stream.

The anguish on Kamet0’s face was clear to see as he quickly said “No” and leaned back in his chair after realizing what had just happened. It didn’t take long for his channel to get struck down after the incident.

Kamet0 responds to NSFW incident

The suspension came at a pretty unfortunate time for the streamer, who had been gearing up for a major announcement on May 24 - which, of course, he planned to make during a livestream to his fans.

After being handed the ban, he tweeted: “My first ban on Twitch while I have the biggest announcement on my channel tomorrow. I am shot.”

Will Kamet0 be unbanned?

It remains to be seen if Kamet0’s ban will be held up by Twitch or if he will be able to make his announcement on his channel. At the time of writing, on May 24, his channel has yet to be reinstated on the livestreaming platform.

However, the streamer has not revealed if he is in contact with anybody from Twitch that can help him get back online. Considering the incident was caused by a viewer, and not Kamet0 himself, the partnered streamer should surely be back broadcasting sooner rather than later.
