Twitch Hot Tub Streamer Received Inappropriate Dressing Ban for Bunny Outfit

The Twitch streamer Supcaitlin received a ban on “inappropriate clothing”, but not for her whirlpool streams, but for a rabbit outfit. Twitch is remarkably inconsistent with its handling of bans, if we’re honest. Whirlpools are currently the new “meta” for Twitch partners. She’s been doing supcaitlin regularly, but her ban doesn’t seem to stem from it at all. Instead, she wore this bunny girl outfit. It was only a one day ban, but it feels like a very strange ban on dropping it.

On a personal level, whirlpool streams don’t bother me, no matter what gender they are. I don’t turn on and don’t see the stimulus. The outfit Supcaitlin wore was suggestive, but it wasn’t against the rules in any way. So the Twitch streamer got an inappropriate clothing ban. But what are the rules?

“We do not allow streamers to be fully or partially naked, including exposing their genitals or buttocks. We do not allow any visible outlines of genitals, even if they are covered. Sending naked or partially naked minors is always prohibited regardless of the context. For those presenting as women, we ask that you cover your nipples. We do not allow exposed underbusts. The demerger is unrestricted as long as these coverage requirements are met. All streamers require you to cover the area that extends from your hips to the bottom of your pelvis and buttocks. “

The rules for streams in which you would wear swimwear are different. This particular outfit is less revealing than the hot tub streams that Supcaitlin normally performs. Twitch claims that they consider context when handing out actions like these bans, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here.

In such cases, many Twitch employees feel that the company’s moderation guidelines are far less consistent than they could be. Supcaitlin pointed out that she had a whirlpool stream pushed back thanks to the inappropriate Twitch ban. She also pointed out that it could have simply been mass reporting from people who didn’t like its content. There are certainly people who report mass streamers producing such whirlpool content / IRL streams.

Either way, Supcaitlin is back as a Twitch streamer after the inappropriate clothing ban, but it seems Twitch needs to take a look at its moderation system, or at least mass-reported streams.
