One of Twitch’s rising stars has been temporarily banned from the platform after suffering a live dress malfunction.
Streamer Imjasmine was a fan favorite when she was doing a broadcast on a rowing pool on Wednesday when she accidentally showed herself on camera.
One Day Ban
After her fans pointed out the error in the broadcast chat, the broadcaster quickly covered herself.
It’s too small, too late, for Twitch.
“Welp, got banned for a day by twitch,” Imjasmine wrote on Thursday. “See you all soon.”
Hot Tub Livestreams
Imjasmine, who has more than 220,000 followers on Twitch, is constantly entering a new content craze known as “hot tub livestreams”.
They include streamers – usually women in bikinis – chatting with fans while broadcasting in the hot tub or in the spray pool.
Critics have dismissed this approach as an embarrassing way to avoid Twitch’s guidelines on exposing clothing.
Site policies prohibit “full or partial nudity” including the visible outline of genitals, even when covered”.
Twitch is explicitly barring those who “present themselves as women” from showing off their nipples, a rule that Imjasmine played badly this week.
The broadcaster has confirmed that the ban will last 24 hours.
If so, Jasmine will return to the platform on April 23.
Other Streamers To Get Banned
She’s not the first streamer slapped with a ban in recent weeks after pushing the boundaries of Twitch’s rules.
Earlier this month, American online star Supcaitlin was banned for 24 hours for wearing “inappropriate” clothing during a stream.
The streamer blamed “mass reporting” by viewers for her suspension after she donned a revealing bunny outfit on camera.
Supcaitlin, who has more than 53,000 followers on Twitch and 68,000 on Instagram, also regularly engages in hot tub livestreams.
