Popular Twitch streamer ‘Kaylee’ has received criticism after boasting about the number of men she has had permanently banned from the streaming platform, but she claims that it was in her own defense, and that the clips were out of context.

Kaylee, who boasts over 20,000 followers on the platform, appeared to brag about having her record of having men banned, in a now-deleted clip.

“I wanna know how many men I’ve gotten banned,” she said. “It’s pretty fucking hilarious. I would like to know how many men I’ve gotten banned in the past year. It has to be like, a good 20 or so.”

She went on to explain that she uses an “admin” in her chat to permanently ban random accounts. “It would be quite unfortunate if I reported all of these accounts to Twitch and I got you all permanently banned. Maybe I should do that, what do you guys think? You guys think I should do that? What do you guys thinks? I could be petty as fuck and do it, just for the fuck of it. Yeah, okay, I’ll do it.”

“I’ll just message the admin I have in my chat all the time,” she continued. “Because I do have an admin in my chat all the time, so you know, it’s pretty easy for me. I’ll do that for you seeing as you wanna talk shit for no reason. No biggie.”

From the clip, it appears Kaylee is banning certain accounts due to them using the chat to “talk shit”, or otherwise harass her.

Kaylee herself tweeted that the comments had been taken out of context, and that she was just ‘defending herself’.

However, many commenters were critical of Kaylee’s admissions, unhappy with the what they saw as an abuse of power.

Others came to her defense though, arguing that she was banning people who had been harassing her or had been racist, and therefore was justified in her actions.

Some have called for Kaylee to be punished by Twitch for what they deem unfair behavior, and some argued that if genders were reversed, and it was a man banning women, there would have already been repercussions.

Twitch has faced criticism itself in the past for perceived favoritism, accused of handing out harsher or more lenient punishments to some streamers, and being inconsistent.

Kaylee is of course within her right to remove users from her chat at her whim, but having users banned from the site entirely is another step, that requires Twitch itself to take action on the accounts reported.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
