Amouranth Has Already Been Unbanned Following Her Fifth Twitch Suspension


Amouranth Has Already Been Unbanned Following Her Fifth Twitch Suspension

Twitch streamer Kaitlyn "Amouranth" Siragusa has been granted access to her account only three days after she got her fifth ban on the streaming service.


"I'm trying to see why I got banned on Twitch. I'm a little confused, you know, my content's very family friendly," she joked in her own YouTube video about the ban. Siragusa was arguably the face of the hot tub trend which took over Twitch in the summer, featuring streamers chatting, completing challenges and playing games while paddling in a pool. Detractors claimed that this kind of content was inappropriate for the platform whereas others didn't see the issue with women chatting while wearing swimwear.

After Twitch created its own category for hot tub streams, Siragusa pivoted to ASMR where she would whisper and lick the microphone while dressed in workout gear. Again, she was banned for these streams after an outcry from certain sections of the community called this "too sexual" for Twitch.

With over eight million active streamers on the service dabbling in gaming to arts and crafts to making music, you'll never know what'll happen next. Check out some of the best Twitch wins and fails below!



Twitch isn't the only place where she has a significant presence, as she also posts on other social media channels for her millions of followers. However, the other day, her Twitch, TikTok, and Instagram accounts were simultaneously banned with no notice.

It's possible that this was an error on the part of the platforms, as a result of the recent issues that took Instagram offline and the Twitch hack that exposed a huge amount of information on streamers. "Companies up in arms, lighting themselves on fire internally but 'we still have time to ban Amouranth from both platforms. That's very important,'" said Siragusa sarcastically in that same video on the fifth ban.


At the time of writing, her Instagram and TikTok accounts are still offline. Yet, as Twitch is predominantly her platform of choice for content creation, she won't need to hop over to YouTube, like Indiefoxx and DrDisrespect have done following their bans.
