Twitch star BruceDropEmOff has been banned from the streaming platform following Twitch terms of service violations. The popular streamer recently resigned from One True King, better known as OTK, after facing backlash from his followers after appearing on stream with OTK co-founder Mizkif. BruceDropEmOff had over 1 million subscribers on Twitch, initially gaining popularity from streaming titles like Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and Grand Theft Auto.
The ban on Bruce’s main account is indefinite due to the star incurring multiple violations. He received a similar offense in December 2021, which likely contributes to the permanent nature of the ban. Twitch has leveled similar bans in the past, such as when Hasan Piker received a Twitch ban for using a racial slur. However, Hasan’s ban appears to have been temporary and his account is active as of writing.
It is possible for a Twitch ban to be appealed, with appeals being limited to one in a six-month period in the case of a permanent ban. This means that BruceDropEmOff could make a comeback, but if he is not successful in appealing it may be a while before he returns to the platform. In the meantime, the popular streamer might leverage his YouTube channel pending the outcome of his Twitch appeal.
BruceDropEmOff’s ban from Twitch is a reminder of the importance of following the platform’s terms of service. Streamers should be aware of the consequences of violating the rules, as it could lead to a permanent ban from the platform. As such, it is essential for streamers to be aware of the platform’s policies and to conduct themselves accordingly.
