One of the biggest Twitch streamers in the world, Llanos 'Ibai' Garatea, has just suffered his third ban on Twitch after someone else on his stream showed their bare butt. The Spanish content creator has been suspended as nudity directly infringes on Twitch's Terms of Service agreement, even though it was not him who performed the act.
During Ibai's stream, he was hosting a battle of wits between two guys - it's in Spanish so I'm not sure what they say but from the tone and setting it seems like it might be a roasting war. After an exchange of words, one of the performers turns his back to the other and bends over exposing his bare butt. Though Ibai exclaims a "no" it was too late, the deed was done.

It seems the crew know the implications of this because one of the hosts immediately says "Fs in the chat". If you're not familiar it's just a play on "press F to pay respects" as a recognition that something has gone wrong.
Ibai addressed his third ban by cautioning content creators. "The three times I have been banned have been for three things totally external to me." He says that it doesn't matter about what context these things happen in, you should be careful of who you invite to work with you because sometimes these situations happen.
Nudity and sexual content has been recently discussed on Twitch as the streaming platform saw a huge rise in hot tub content. Streamers of all shapes and sizes took to hot tubs which started debates within the community about what was classed as too sexual for Twitch. Nudity is absolutely off the cards no matter the context on Twitch and so even if Ibai is not at fault here it's, unfortunately, a suspension offence all the same.
