Twitch streamer 'LivStixs' is the latest in a long line to have called out Twitch's double standards. The Amazon-owned streaming platform recently hit her with a ban as a result of her clothes, while the controversial Kaitlyn 'Amouranth' Siragusa was recently reinstated after just three days following her fifth ban.
Liv's third suspension from Twitch came on October 14, and she was swiftly informed that it was an indefinite one. The ban appears to have been related to her so-called "inappropriate attire", although the streamer maintains there was nothing wrong with her outfit: a t-shirt and shorts.

Understandably, Liv was far from thrilled about this ban and quickly took to Twitter to show off what exactly it was she was wearing, and asked followers if they thought it warranted the ban. She also hit out at Twitch for keeping her banned indefinitely while Amouranth was allowed to return after just three days earlier this week. Those who are aware of Amouranth's streams will know that she has definitely pushed Twitch guidelines considerably on more than one occasion.
"I'm honestly flabbergasted right now," Liv explained to Dexerto. "I got banned in a shirt that shows cleavage and a pair of jean shorts. Keep in mind, I've worn MANY pairs of shorts like this on Twitch in the past 4 years with no troubles."
Liv added that her past two bans were as a result of "inappropriate attire" too. On both occasions, she says she was wearing a bikini.
"We do not permit exposed underbust," Twitch's guidelines state. "Cleavage is unrestricted as long as these coverage requirements are met. For all streamers, you must cover the area extending from your hips to the bottom of your pelvis and buttocks."
Fortunately, Liv's refusal to take the ban lying down resulted in action. A little over 24 hours later, she was informed that she was no longer banned and is able to continue streaming on Twitch.
