Twitch Bans s1mple (Again), Facing Permanent Ban
What did he do again this time?
Oleksandr 's1mple' Kostyliev has been banned (yet again) from the streaming platform Twitch, and boy, could it be his last? This is s1mple's third Twitch ban in two years, and whether Twitch will allow him to continue streaming on the platform - or if s1mple wants out altogether - is still up in the air.
His first two bans were allegedly due to homophobic slurs uttered during his stream that were allegedly intended "as a joke". With the third ban due to unknown reasons, this may be the straw that breaks the camel's back, and the CS:GO star might opt out and head for greener pastures.
There is speculation that s1mple might be wrongly banned due to rampant "fake streams" - essentially recorded rebroadcasts of popular streamers' streaming sessions coated with fake giveaways in an attempt to phish viewers' account details, but we will not know until Twitch or s1mple releases a statement themselves. Oh well, time to check out Hiko's stream in the meantime.
