Pokimane reveals Twitch ban warning
On May 23, Pokimane reveals Twitch ban warning a screenshot of the official warning she received from Twitch. “Warning is deserved, sorry to anyone who didn’t wanna see that on stream I’ll be even more careful in the future, but I’m glad it made for a good meme lmao,” she said.
The warning clearly states that “another offense may result in a suspension.”

days or weeks and in severe cases 30 days, but repeated violation may result
in permanent ban.

fair decision as it was accidental while some believes that there were some
special treatment given to her, as a similar twitch streamer xQc was suspended
for the very same reason of violation.

individually and without always considering prior precedent.
