Longtime YouTuber-turned-Twitch streamer has had his account now banned by both platforms, with Twitch revealing in a statement per esports insider Rod Breslau that they have permanently suspended his channel.

While Leafy was once hailed as one of YouTube’s most notorious commentary channels, he took an extended hiatus from the platform, returning with a vengeance in 2020 to acclaim from his fans.

However, he found himself faced with criticism and speculation after uploading multiple videos targeting Twitch streamer ‘Pokimane’ — and he didn’t stop, threatening to continue uploading such content until YouTube gave him the boot.

YouTube finally did just that shortly thereafter, causing Leafy to find a new home on Twitch, where he continued to apparently “bait” bans by using offensive language.

LeafyIsHere has been banned from Twitch, following his move to the platform after his previous ban from YouTube.

It seems that his behavior has finally caught up to him, as Twitch has now handed out a permanent suspension to the streamer, which was reported by Rod Breslau via Twitter.

A statement given to Rod claims that Twitch had banned Leafy for “the safety of the community,” writing: “We reserve the right to suspend any account for conduct that violates our rules, or that we determine to be inappropriate, harmful, or puts our community at risk.”

As the ban is permanent, it doesn’t seem that Leafy will be making his return to Twitch at all — but he is reaching out to the platform for help, claiming that he wasn’t notified of an incoming ban and arguing that a permanent suspension is a bit egregious for his “first offense.”

“Wtf Bezos, just when i started having fun,” he said of the situation. “Twitch Support – is there any appealing this, was my first offense bro lmfao.”

“Thought there would be a warning first or something,” he continued. “I mean it was obvious I was pushing it, but still was being somewhat mindful of TOS.”

Fans and critics alike are divided as to the Twitch’s surprising ruling, with many comparing it to Leafy’s last ban from YouTube, which he similarly argued was out of order due to purportedly never having received a warning.

Is Griffin Johnson dating Kelly Osbourne? The internet thinks so after the two were filmed coming back from a dinner out. 

Griffin Johnson is a popular TikToker with 9.2m followers and a member of the Sway House. He and Dixie D’Amelio dated over the summer but broke up after he was allegedly caught cheating on her. He even made a diss-track after the news came out that Dixie was now dating Noah Beck.

21-year-old Griffin has retained his place in the spotlight and has allegedly made up with Noah Beck. But, perhaps this is because he has a new woman to pursue.

On Wednesday night, celebrity and influencer photographer Kevin Wong posted a video where the pair were spotted out together at Craig’s in Los Angeles and proceeded to both get into the same car to leave.

Kelly Osbourne, at 35, is fifteen years older than Griffin and is used to the spotlight, having spent most of her life in front of cameras for her family’s reality television show The Osbournes.

Tana Mongeau even weighed in on the situation, tweeting a screenshot of the video posted by Kevin Wong saying, “What the f*** is going on someone please this one really threw me through a loop.”

This isn’t the first time a TikTok star has started hanging out with an older, mainstream celebrity. 20-year-old Addison Rae and A-list celeb Kourtney Kardashian raised eyebrows in September due to the unlikely friendship they struck up during quarantine, causing some fans to express their concern on social media.

Fans have speculated that Griffin’s dinner with Kelly could be a casual business meeting, for a new project or potentially as a guest on Griffin’s new podcast Young and Hung with Bob Menery.
