Twitch’s official “Food” channel partnered with ‘cannabis enthusiasts’ PRØHBTD, but the content provided by the company has prompted scrutiny online.

In one segment, two women are seen to be rolling a joint, as one of them uses the other’s back and behind to help hold everything in place.

The clip, live streamed on the official Twitch ‘Food’ channel on January 4, was quickly shared to Reddit, as commenters suggested it was possibly in breach of Twitch’s own terms of service and community guidelines.

Twitch has faced criticism already in January, after a streamer who allegedly assaulted his pregnant wife on stream was allowed to return to the platformTwitch later permanently removed the channel.

Another streamer claimed to have accidentally streamed topless after not realizing her camera was still broadcasting, receiving a three day suspension, which some felt was too lenient.

However, in this instance Twitch operates the channel in question, so the broadcasting of this content (see below) would be an internal issue between Twitch and the partner, PRØHBTD.

Twitter users responded to the new content on the official Food channel very negatively, calling it ‘vapid’, and were perplexed at the channel being marked as ‘Family Freindly’. Others called it a “slap in the face” to fans of the traditional content on ‘Food’.

Some users were surprised to discover that the Food channel was an official Twitch channel, with this kind of ‘boundary pushing’ content typically consigned to lesser known channels.

Out of context, the clip is certainly bizarre, but even given the context, it appears odd that this kind of content would be streamed from an official Twitch channel.

What are content houses?

Essentially, content houses, which is a growing trend among young adults in LA, describe a collective of young online influencers who all live together, grow their respective online profiles and create content across TikTok and Instagram.

TikTok content houses like the Hype House and Sway House have been immensely successful, as they have helped launched the careers of the likes of Chase Hudson, Bryce Hall, Addison Rae and the D’Amelio sisters.

The success of the Hype and Sway houses have led to other content houses like the Clubhouse for TikTokers (which later split into two single-gender houses after the Clubhouse For The Boys was formulated), the Glam House for beauty influencers and Team 10, which was a vlogging house previously led by controversial YouTuber Jake Paul.

While it is hard for new content houses to live up to the same success as the Hype and Sway houses, Top Talent House definitely looks promising. Also, both Hype and Sway have seen some of their members leave, meaning a gap could be opening up for a new top dog in the content house battle.
