Lawrence Scotti

VTuber Veibae was banned from Twitch in April 2022 – but was just one day after receiving her first-ever ban on the platform. But why was she banned? Here’s everything you should know.

Veibae is one of the most popular VTuber personalities on Twitch with over 1 million followers. She gained popularity through her hilarious sense of humor and has grown a massive fanbase since signing with VShojo in 2021.

She is also known for having a close relationship with fellow star streamer Sodapoppin. Days after he was banned from the platform, Veibae was also banned for unrelated reasons but was unbanned a little more than a day later.

Veibae streams under the talent company VShojo, which has a handful of VTubers they sponsor.

Veibae unbanned

Veibae was officially unbanned from Twitch on April 18, 2022, after one day, two minutes, and forty-four seconds. It wasn’t a long stint, which is often the case for first-time offenders depending on the nature of the ban.

She announced it herself on social media too. Then, she dusted herself off, rolled up her sleeves, and jumped right back into business. She even poked fun at the incident with a follow-up post, saying: “Reformed streamer live!”

Why was Veibae banned on Twitch?

On April 17, 2022, the VShojo streamer was banned from Twitch after watching a YouTube video that featured unsavory content, which is against the platform’s terms of service. At the time, she knew it would only last 24 hours.

Veibae also used the ban as an opportunity to promote her new merchandise, which happened to drop on the same day. “Exclusive limited banned streamer merch [is now] available,” she said alongside a link to her website.

Veibae accepted full responsibility for the ban, admitting she showed something “dumb” during a broadcast on April 16, 2022. However, she’s served her sentence and is now free to stream again, much to the delight of her fans.

“Meanwhile, Soda is still banned after five days. His latest suspension was imposed due to a more serious offense, so there’s a good chance that’s playing a part. There’s no news on when he’ll be unbanned.”
