It still goes down as one of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen on Twitch! Like, literally. Not afraid to say it. Was shocked that someone as large as Poki and as representative as a role model and runs a talent agency… actually one of the stupidest f**king things I’ve seen in the history of the platform.

Graham further commented on the way some streamers view getting short bans as ‘mini-vacations,’ and how it’s a hard issue for Twitch to deal with.

“This is a huge problem when it comes to Twitch, when it comes to moderation, when it comes to enforcement, when it comes to punishment,” he added.
