Forsen reveals Twitch ban was for watching “dubious” AI VTuber content
Twitch streamer Forsen has been hit with a surprising ban from the Amazon-owned platform, but it’s only for a week.
Over the last few years, Forsen has become one of the more popular streamers on Twitch, amassing over a million followers in the process.
While he’s known for playing a variety of games, he most recently made headlines after beating xQc’s Minecraft speedrun time.
Forsen received a surprising ban from the platform on April 20, 2023, after watching an AI-generated video of a VTuber that was a bit explicit.
Forsen banned on Twitch
After it was revealed that Forsen had been banned from the platform, his channel disappeared only to show the usual Twitch message.
“This channel is temporarily unavailable due to a violation of Twitch’s Community Guidelines or Terms of Service,” it reads.
Fans of the streamer quickly took to social media to crack jokes about his ban in 2020 where he received an ‘indefinite’ ban after accidentally showing an explicit gif of a horse on stream.
He was able to return to the platform rather quickly, but it appears his viewers haven’t forgotten about the infamous incident.

Forsen reveals reason for week-long ban
In a tweet on April 24, Forsen revealed the reason behind his ban just four days before.
“I’m banned cause of the dubious ASMR youtube video for 1 week. Unlucky,” he replied. The streamer didn’t specify which video caused the ban, but many believe it was due to an explicit AI video featuring a popular VTuber.
Since he was banned on April 20 for one week, Forsen’s community should be able to watch their favorite streamer yet again sometime on April 27 — or whenever he decides to go live next.
