Pokimane’s Ban Was One Of The ‘Stupidest’ In The History of Twitch, says ‘djWheat’

Pokimane is one of the most popular streamers of Twitch. She is the epitome of female power in streaming. However, the streamer got banned from the platform in the first week of January 2022 for streaming Avatar.

Content makers can stream and react to a variety of shows on platforms like YouTube and Twitch. They are not overly protected by copyright rules, and streamers are allowed to arrange watch parties and publish reaction videos. But once a DMCA strik happens, there’s no going back. And for Pokimane, her luck did not stay by her side when she streamed Avatar: The Last Airbender on her channel.

What Did djWheat Say?

Former Twitch Director of Creator Development March ‘djWheat’ has now given his opinion about the whole Pokimane ban drama and he thinks it was one of the ‘stupidest’ things he has ever seen happen on Twitch.

“It still goes down as one of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen on Twitch!” he exclaimed. “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.”

“I could never understand why anyone would ever take the risk. I don’t get it,” he added.

‘Weird Spot Twitch Gets Put Into’

“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. “Twitch does need creators, does need the revenue that comes from creators’ audiences. So it’s a weird spot Twitch gets put into.”
