Amouranth, the renowned Twitch star and Kick streamer, finds herself at the center of controversy once again. Despite her recent move to Kick, a rival livestreaming platform, it appears that her actions may have breached community guidelines and put her at risk of suspension. This time, it’s Amouranth’s twerking antics during a DJ set on stream that have sparked a heated debate among viewers and raised concerns about her adherence to Kick’s regulations.

Amouranth’s transition from Twitch to Kick has been accompanied by fanfare, as the platform aims to attract popular streamers from its Amazon-owned counterpart. Notable figures like xQc and Destiny have already made the switch, and Amouranth’s presence on Kick further solidifies the platform’s growing roster of big-name stars.

However, Amouranth’s controversial reputation precedes her. With numerous bans issued on Twitch in the past, she has often found herself on the wrong side of the community guidelines. While some may perceive Kick as a more lenient platform in terms of content restrictions, it still upholds certain rules regarding acceptable streaming practices. Amouranth’s recent twerking episode could potentially put her in violation of Kick’s guidelines.

One of Kick‘s regulations specifically prohibits “sexually suggestive content”. This encompasses activities such as “erotic or sexually suggestive dancing or gestures.” On July 16, during a DJ set on her stream, Amouranth began twerking when the song lyrics prompted her to place her hands on her knees. The display was quickly noticed by vigilant viewers,. Viewers promptly reposted the clip on Reddit under the title: “Kick TOS: twerking is bannable. Amouranth:”

Kick co-founder Eddie Craven had previously made it clear that twerking is not tolerated on the platform. This is particularly enforceable when done in exchange for subscriptions or monetary rewards. However, as of the time of writing, Amouranth’s Kick channel remains active. This has raised questions about the enforcement of the platform’s guidelines.

Despite her relatively recent move to Kick, Amouranth has managed to amass an impressive following of over 100,000 followers. Moreover, her average viewership on Kick over the past 30 days has surpassed her numbers on Twitch. She pulls in an average of 11,282 viewers on Kick compared to 6,538 on Twitch. This may indicate that Amouranth is capitalizing on the platform’s more favorable revenue model,. This is because Kick offers a higher split of 95% for streamers compared to Twitch’s 50/50 split.

As the debate surrounding Amouranth’s twerking incident unfolds, it remains to be seen how Kick will address the potential violation of its guidelines. Whether the platform will enforce its rules consistently and consider appropriate disciplinary measures is yet to be determined.
