TWITCH permanently banned Jidion after his first verified stream.
He is said to have launched a “hostile attack” on Pokimane’s stream on January 12.
Why is Jidion banned on Twitch?
Jidon ‘Jidion’ Adams encouraged his chat to switch to Pokimane’s Twitch stream, saying “everyone say L+ Rate” in her chat.
After realizing he was the victim of a hate attack, Pokimane noted that what Jidion is doing is potentially against Twitch’s TOS (terms of service).
“It’s embarrassing, and if you got banned, I wouldn’t even be upset.
“I won’t apologize. You did it to yourself, man.”
It wasn’t just Pokimane that was harassed – her viewers were targeted by Jidion’s chat as well as using Twitch Whispers’ one-on-one DM feature.
In the end, she had to cut her stream short due to Jidion’s lengthy conversation.
“I think I’ll end the stream. Because the more I can deal with this, I don’t like people from his stream who are whispering to people on my stream.
“I’ll give up on bullsh*t, but I don’t want you guys to give up on bullsh*t.”
Jidion is a popular YouTube star with over 3 million followers but also recently started streaming on Twitch.
Jidion was initially banned for 14 days on January 13 but he revealed this was later changed to a permanent ban.
What did Jidion say?
He initially accepted the 14-day ban and accepted responsibility for violating the terms of service.
He insisted though his attack had nothing to do with her gender, saying: “My dislike of her has nothing to do with her gender, it’s who she is!”
Jidion though has claimed the permanent ban is unfair.
“I’m not here to talk about why I’m banned because I deserve to be banned,” he said. “That’s what it is. I broke the terms of service. But what I’m here to say is I’m here to ask Twitch to make it fair.”
“I feel Twitch should uphold my 14-day suspension, especially for the first offense, and not let external factors dictate. [it]. What I did was wrong. But how am I supposed to do better next time if I never get it next time? ”
He took to Twitter to ask his followers to use the hashtag #twitchfreejidion to help change the mind.
