The popular streaming platform Twitch has served as the starting point of a lot of prominent streamer’s careers. However, the platform is also known to be not fair towards its streamers leading to a lot of streamers moving to other platforms to get fair treatment. However, despite all this, it still remains the go-to streaming platform.


Twitch’s rival platform kick has also been gaining a lot of prominence. Twitch is known for its strict policies and banning people. However, Kick still remains pretty open-minded about what is allowed and what isn’t. This has led to a lot of streamers switching to Kick after getting banned with no hope of recovering their account.

So here are some popular streamers who are banned from Twitch.

5. Ice Poseidon 

Ice Poseidon is considered one of the OG’s of the IRL streaming community. The steamer had started off his journey via Twitch. However, he was banned from the platform several times whether it was for his involvement in Ponzi schemes or swatting. Ice was permanently banned from the platform in April 2017.

Even though the reasoning behind his ban wasn’t clarified, the band was shortly after he got swatted on American Airlines while streaming and got escorted off the plane by police. Moreover, ice was still able to shift to YouTube and maintained his audience on the platform before shifting to Kick. The streamer has 705k subscribers on YouTube and 134k followers on Kick.

4. Amouranth

Former Twitch streamer and popular Onlyfans model Amouranth has been banned from Twitch several times. Amouranth gained prominence through her hot tub streams and continues to indulge in ‘sexually suggestive’ streams. Furthermore, this led to Amouranth getting temporarily banned on Twitch 7 times.

Amouranth aka Kaitlyn Siragusa had over 6.3 million followers on Twitch before switching to Kick. She now has amassed over 207k followers on Kick and continues to stream on the platform. Besides this, the streamer is one of the top creators on Onlyfans and has a huge following.

3. Dr DisRespect

Dr DisRespect is one of the most popular OG gaming streamers of all time. Arguably, he had the most famous and shocking Twitch ban. Despite cursing while gaming or going on rants, Doc wasn’t a part of a lot of controversies. So, his permanent Twitch ban on June 26, 2020, was a huge shock to his community.

No reason was revealed behind Doc’s permanent ban. This was even more confusing as Doc has signed a multi-year contract with Twitch. After his ban, Doc moved to YouTube and has 4.63 million subscribers as of now. Furthermore, the streamer still regularly streams on the platform.

2. IShowSpeed 

YouTube streamer IShowSpeed is known for his over-the-top behaviour on his streams. The streamer had started his streaming Journey via YouTube but used to stream on Twitch regularly. However, after making a ‘rape joke’ towards female streamer AshKaash the YouTube streamer was banned from the platform.

1. Adin Ross

Adin Ross was one of the most controversial Twitch streamers. Ross was known for going off the rails. He went on several seemingly racist rants and didn’t hold back at anything. Furthermore, he got banned on Twitch over 7 times before finally getting Permabanned. The reason for his ban was his not being able to moderate ‘hateful conduct’ on his chat.
