The Amazon-owned live streaming platform just banned one of its most popular broadcasters. His presumed crime: Vibing out on an edible.
The war on weed across social media platforms took another absurd turn on Thursday when popular live-streaming platform Twitch banned one of its most subscribed streamers, Kai Cenat, for seemingly breaking its community guidelines. Twitch bans are usually temporary, but some are permanent, and even short bans can have a huge impact on the streamer’s account.
The company has not officially confirmed the reason for Cenat’s suspension, but fans and Cenat himself believe a January 24 stream of Cenat trying his first THC-infused edible triggered the ban. This is kind of a big deal: The Bronx native became Twitch’s breakout star of 2022, garnering millions of views and hosting celebrity appearances from stars like Lil Baby and Ice Spice— all from the comfort of his home. –
