Famed speedrunner and twitch streamer Narcissawright, formerly known as CosmoWright, has had her permaban reversed despite threatening to shoot people at the platform’s headquarters.
Narcissawright is one of the internet’s most famous speedrunners, best known for her legendary Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time records, in which she beat the N64 title in just a few minutes.
However, on March 21, she was permanently banned from Twitch for violating the site’s rules on nudity and sexual content. This prompted her to tweet, “I want to kill myself and shoot people at Twitch HQ!”
Despite that threat and the permaban, the streamer’s punishment was shockingly reversed just over a week later.
Twitch reverses permaban after ‘repentant appeal’
On March 29, Narcissa announced that Twitch had decided to reverse the decision to permanently ban her, reducing it to a 22-day suspension instead.
“Given the details of your case, including the remorse expressed in your appeal, we have decided to reduce your suspension period,” Twitch said in an email to the streamer.
Repentance & Mercy.
I feel grateful;

Twitch went on to explain that the ban would expire 22 days after it was originally imposed, but also said attempts to circumvent the ban would result in additional penalties.
During her lockdown, Narcissa posted a photo of her email inbox revealing that she had two other Twitch accounts that were banned indefinitely, suggesting she was trying to circumvent the ban.

Speaking to Dexerto, the speed runner claimed her shooting threat was “not credible” and that she initially had no guns.
Still, the streamer says she’s grateful to Twitch for hearing her objection and for significantly reducing her ban period. However, it remains unknown whether she faces an additional penalty for circumventing the ban.
