On April 17, 2023, Kai Cenat, one of the most prominent streamers on Twitch, was banned from the platform for 7 days. His channel read, “This channel is temporarily unavailable due to a violation of Twitch’s Community Guidelines or Terms of Service.” After returning, he threatens to leave Twitch if he is banned again.
Kai Cenat’s Journey On Twitch
Kai Cenat is one of the most prominent streamers on Twitch. He has continued to expand his already massive subscriber base, surpassing 90,000 subscriptions. Additionally, he recently achieved a record-breaking level of hype during his impressive ascent.
In February, his substation was a huge success. However, even after this massive success, Twitch gifted Kai a pair of customized sneakers instead of a contract.
This is not the first time Kai has been banned from the platform, which explains his frustration.
Reason Behind His Ban
The reason behind his ban from the platform was not revealed. However, sources claim it was because of “repeated explicit simulated sexual activity in GTA.” As per Twitch’s Community Guidelines, Sexually Suggestive Content is prohibited on the streaming platform. Some also speculate that Kai crashing a dirt bike into his setup might have caused the ban.
Kai Cenat “Dares” Twitch To Ban Him
After the constant bans, Kai is frustrated. Twitch prohibits streamers who are banned from their platform from appearing on another channel. Despite that, on 27th April’s live stream, Kai began playing a new song. This left the viewers concerned that Kai might face yet another ban.
But Kai was not afraid. He asserted,
“I’m not getting banned, I’m not getting banned. If I get banned, everybody who I’ve seen reacts to this better get banned too.”
Controversially, he went a step ahead and dared Twitch to ban him. He said, “I dare you, I f*c*ing dare you! Oh, I dare you.”
Will Kai Switch To Kick?
With the rise of the rival platform, ‘Kick,’ it may be a golden opportunity for Kai to switch and “make a lot of money.” Rumors about Kai switching to Kickstarted when the streamer received a PR package in the broadcast that took place on April 14. The box was wrapped in Kick’s branding. Additionally, Kai received a unique pair of Nike x OffWhite Air Force 1’s as a gift from Kick.
This has caused speculation among fans regarding whether the prominent Twitch streamer intends to switch to Kick. Furthermore, Many believe that it could be a possibility in the future.
