Partnered Twitch streamer Grizz, well-known in the PUBG scene, has been banned after recreating Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa’s incident during his own stream.


UPDATE SEPTEMBER 22:

Grizz has been unbanned by Twitch. Grizz apologized for making the joke, saying it “wasn’t that funny” and was “inappropriate.”

During a September 8 stream, Amouranth was lying on the floor with her dog and rolling around while thousands of viewers watched on when suddenly a major wardrobe malfunction occurred.

She unknowingly gave viewers a look up her skirt and exposed herself several times to her stream, which led to her chat being bombarded with warnings about what was happening.

The next day Amouranth was hit with a 3-day ban from the platform. She returned to streaming on September 12 and even became the fastest-growing Twitch channel in that time.

However, the clip of the incident quickly made the rounds and was mocked, and even fellow Twitch streamers found a way to get in on the fun.

Grizz decided to completely duplicate the incident in his stream, going the extra mile by featuring his dog for maximum effect.

He sat down on the ground and began playing with his dog, where he then “exposed” himself to his stream and viewers were able to get a glimpse at a fake pair of balls coming out of his shorts.

When he stood back up, he said “Oh sh*t,” acting as if he just noticed what happened and tucked them back into his shorts.

Although he was certainly doing this for the memes and to poke fun at Amouranth, Twitch still came in and swiftly banned him for it. If you go to his channel now you’ll be informed of his suspension.

Grizz hasn’t posted on Twitter about it as of yet so we don’t know the exact length, but Amouranth’s lasted for just three days as a reference point.

Perhaps his clip will have a chance to go viral now and he too can become one of Twitch’s fastest-growing streamers once he inevitably returns to the platform following his ban.

Dexerto will keep you updated on Grizz’s ban going forward.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
