PewDiePie, the popular YouTuber, recently faced a ban on Twitch, leaving fans and creators puzzled about the reason behind it. Despite the lack of public confirmation from Twitch, speculations and questions arose among Felix Kjellberg’s followers. Though he left Twitch before the rise of the Tv-watching trend, PewDiePie was familiar with reaction streams. Both Twitch and PewDiePie have not yet released any official statements about the ban.
One possible reason for the ban could be restreaming PewDiePie’s Yandere Simulator gameplay. PewDiePie aims to establish a comfortable routine to speed up the development of Yandere Simulator. Restreaming old content on Twitch can be beneficial for creators, as it brings attention back to their previous works.
Dexerto reported that PewDiePie’s inactive Twitch channel has gained a resurgence in viewership due to the YouTuber’s decision to re-run his old content. This move has attracted millions of views, showing PewDiePie’s enduring popularity. It is hoped that Twitch will provide more transparency regarding cases like DrDisrespect and PewDiePie in the future.
The Yandere Simulator game, where players control a high school student named Ayano Aishi, has sparked controversy due to its premise of stalking crushes and engaging in brutal murders. Ayano must eliminate rivals to win the heart of her crush, utilizing various methods, including murder or even driving targets to suicide. The game’s ban on Twitch was likely caused by the streaming of old gameplay videos.
While the exact cause behind PewDiePie’s Twitch ban remains uncertain, the incident has led to significant speculation and discussion among PewDiePie’s followers and fellow content creators.
