Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris opened up about his two-week ban from the platform, revealing he’s been struggling with family following his controversial “Blackface” clip.
Sodapoppin was permanently banned from Twitch in late April after an incident where he darkened a character in a game before noting “hmm, black face” and adding more color.
While Soda apologized for the clip, claiming that he “didn’t realize how this was related” and “just threw random makeup on his face,” he was hit with a two-week ban for his actions.
As it turns out, his Twitch ban didn’t just impact his online life, as even his family members were worried the streamer might be racist.

On April 28, Soda addressed the ban, stating that after watching the clip, his suspension was earned, but there were far greater consequences than fourteen days without streaming.
“It’s very frustrating to have family members call my brother Ryan and ask if I’m racist,” Morris said. “That makes me puke.”
He went on to note that he explained his thought process in a post Reddit where he claimed it was all an honest mistake.
“I saw a comment someone said, ‘Chace is dumb enough that he actually screwed up and didn’t realize what he was doing,’ and I looked at that comment and I was like, ‘I don’t know if I should be happy or be sad but it’s true,” added the Twitch star.
It’s not clear if the streamer has gotten his family troubles under control or if the issues continue, but hopefully the Twitch star will take a more cautious approach and prevent these issues from happening in the first place.
