Hot tub streamers hit out at Twitch over ‘unjustified’ bans on ‘bikini streams’

Twitch hot tub streamers “SpookyUnagi” and “SpoopyKitt” are accusing the Amazon-owned platform of banning them for “unjustified” reasons after being banned back-to-back within a week.

Bikini and hot tub streams have long been a controversial topic on Twitch. Originally part of the Just Chatting category, after months of debate, bikini streams finally got their own category in 2021 in the form of Pools, Hot Tubs & Beaches.

Now, amid a string of bans on the site regarding bikini content, some streamers are under the impression that Twitch is trying to ditch those streams from the site as a whole.

In May, streamers SpoopyKitt and SpookyUnagi were banned from the platform despite claiming their content hadn’t changed. In a series of posts, the two hit out at Twitch, calling their suspensions “unjustified”.

After her second ban in a week, Unagi explained that she was completely in the dark and had no idea what she had done to break the site’s rules.

“So this isn’t the third time it’s happened in a week. Please let me know what I’m doing wrong,” she said, tagging Twitch. “I’m doing NOTHING different from what I’ve been doing for a year.”

“If Twitch wants to remove Bikini streaming, then do it. It’s her company and her prerogative,” she added. “But the category still exists. Clearer guidance needs to be published.”

“Twitch empowers creators to build a career and a life by producing content they’ve allowed themselves for a year. Independent contractors who essentially work “for” Twitch buy homes, cars, assets and set aside income for investments,” she said in another thread. “And they threaten to take everything away with unjustified bans.”

Streamer SpoopyKitt echoed her friend’s sentiment, commenting: “[I’ve been] Hula-hooping in the hot tub for a year, so I don’t know why it’s suddenly considered “sexually suggestive.”

To complicate things further, streamers were concerned about a blog post on Twitch that “clarified” the policy on sexual content but didn’t provide updates on bikini streams.

Twitch doesn’t comment on individual suspensions, so it’s unclear what the two did to get suspended, but hopefully they can figure out their situation and continue their careers in peace. Hot tub streamers hit out at Twitch over ‘unjustified’ bans on ‘bikini streams’
