Streamers can often get a bad reputation over the smallest of instances because they are recorded for anyone to see. But what if it wasn’t a streamer, but their animal who made the faux pas?
Over the years, Twitch streamers have been banned for everything and anything with a varying degree of offence caused.
But earlier in the week, a Twitch streamer by the name of Valannn was streaming as usual until her elderly dog decided to let one loose - literally.
The 12-year-old Shiba Inu, Kouki, accidentally defecated on his shocked owner whilst she was picking him up for a little onscreen cuddle.
It was only after she was holding him that she noticed he’d moved his tail to signal the beginnings of a poop.
But unfortunately, she was too late, and he proceeded to poo on her mid-stream which left her having to run out of the room with him to get to a safe area.
The yucky stream clip quickly did its rounds on social media, racking up quite a bit of attention due to the hilarious fail, but it didn’t end so well for the Twitch streamer.
Facing major backlash for her dog’s accident, she posted the consequence on Twitter yesterday (27 July), to reveal that she’d been slapped with a temporary ban.
She tweeted: "my first time EVER getting banned on Twitch because my 12 year old dog, Kouki, accidentally pooped on my stream.”
“Does this really keep the community safe? [Shaking my head],” Valannn questioned.
Within in the screenshot posted, it shows an email shows that Twitch issued to her, containing a strike to her streaming account due to her “sharing content featuring bodily fluids”.
But that wasn’t all.
Specifically, she was banned for 'deliberately sharing content featuring bodily fluids such as blood, urine, feces, vomit, etc'.
Valann was left annoyed that she was taken off the platform because she 'didn’t realise' her dog was defecating.
She wrote: “As I lifted him up he started to poop and you see a little droplet and that’s when I ran to take him outside. So yes[,] poop is not allowed.”
But thankfully, the ban was only for one day and has already been lifted after she served her time in the naughty corner.
Even though it was only one day and one ban, as per Twitch’s guidelines, if an account incurs multiple strikes, it can eventually result in a permanent ban, so now she really needs to watch where her dog is at all times in case the same thing happens again.
