Twitch streamer Indiefoxx has been banned from Twitch for the third time in the space of 30 days, following previous bans for inappropriate content and attire.

Indiefoxx was first banned on January 28, following a jacuzzi stream.

Fellow streamer Jakenbake had highlighted that Indiefoxx’s swimsuit was see-through, and she later joked that he was partly to blame for the suspension.

But, after returning to the platform, Indiefoxx was struck with another ban on February 1 – less than 24 hours after her previous ban had been lifted.

The second ban was believed to be because she had streamed herself wearing lingerie and writing viewers’ names on herself.

And, it hasn’t taken long for yet another suspension to be meted out. On February 23, after the streamer had gone live with a “music stream,” her channel was once again taken down.

The previous two bans lasted only three days each. However, repeat violations of Twitch’s community guidelines will often lead to longer suspensions.

Twitch states “We keep a record of past violations, and multiple suspensions over time can lead to an indefinite suspension.”

Indiefoxx has now responded, confirming that this latest ban is actually shorter than the previous two, lasting only 24 hours.

Once again, the cause of the suspension is “inappropriate attire.” Twitch qualifies this as “Uploading content or streaming yourself, co-hosts, or guests wearing attire that violates our Nudity and Attire Policy.”

Indiefoxx has said she feels “targeted”, claiming that all she did was play guitar for three hours on her bed.

At the time of her ban, Indiefoxx had over 320,000 followers on the platform. Her last stream before this latest ban averaged around 4,500 concurrent viewers.

Twitch does not comment on community guidelines strikes to respect the privacy of users.

TikToker goes viral for “winning” dumbest ever tattoo contest

An unfortunate TikToker has gone viral after claiming she unofficially won the platform’s “dumbest tattoo” contest, thanks to getting some ink that has earned an entirely new meaning amid the current health crisis.

Whether it be an inspiring quote, a meaningful symbol, or even aesthetically beautiful artwork, people decide to decorate their bodies with tattoos for a wide variety of reasons.

However, one TikToker’s unique tattoo has made for a seriously awkward situation, thanks to the ongoing debates surrounding mask-wearing in some countries due to global health concerns.

The issue began when TikToker “wakaflockafloccare” decided to get a tattoo with a quote that initially inspired her to be herself, rather than putting on a fake persona. The message reads: “Courageously and radically refuse to wear a mask” — a phrase that, ironically, boasts a highly controversial meaning these days.

A TikToker’s tattoo about being true to herself now has a different meaning amid the current global health crisis.

In response to another TikToker’s video asking users, “What’s the dumbest tattoo you’ve ever gotten?” she had a hilarious answer: “I’m just gonna go ahead and let you guys know that I won.”

“I wanted it for a couple years,” the TikToker explained. “It basically means, like, being true to yourself and real, and not, like, pretending to be something you’re not.”

While this sentiment would obviously not be most people’s choice for a tattoo these days, the TikToker revealed that she’d gotten her ink done on March 4, 2020, just before health restrictions and social distancing went into place.

Unsurprisingly, the video has amassed a huge amount of buzz since being uploaded just a day ago, gaining over 1 million views and 215,000 likes — as well as a slew of sympathetic (and hilarious) comments.

“I’m so sorry that the context of your tattoo literally changed overnight after you got it!” one user wrote.

“Well, you have a great attitude about it,” another commented. “May I suggest adding a line? ‘Hindsight is 2020!’”

Commenters were quick to offer some creative suggestions to improve the TikToker’s unfortunate tattoo.

The TikToker clarified that she is not part of any anti-health movement and “could NOT have had worse timing.” While there’s no word yet on if she’ll edit the quote with some creative qualifiers, as suggested by commenters, her situation makes for a unique — and quite humorous — moment in history.
