It seems that Twitch loves to work against itself. Every other day brings the banning of a new uber-popular streamer, and while some are fairly reasonable (we're looking at you, cameraman shot with a crossbow), others seem entirely baseless.

It's pretty clear to see what streamers see in Twitch's competitors, especially if they're not suffering weekly bans. And, now the super-popular Kaitlyn "Amouranth" Siragusa has just been dealt her first ban in some time.

For the first time in two years, Amouranth has been banned from her home platform on Twitch. Siragusa has been quiet recently, following claims she was in an abusive relationship and announcement she was taking a break from Twitch

She soon bounced back to her usual schedule of being a divisive stream known for her "assets," currently boasting over six million followers on the site. Due to Amouranth's massive following, some think it makes her eligible for more slack from the site, but it turns out that the opposite may be the case.

Currently, Amouranth's Twitch account displays the text "This channel is temporarily unavailable due to a violation of Twitch’s Community Guidelines or Terms of Service." It was first pointed out by Dexerto, and although it seems this ban is temporary, that's pretty much all we know for now.

Amouranth is yet to comment on the ban itself, and Twitch is giving us nothing, so we don't know for sure why she's been banned. Fans have theorised that her temporary suspension from the streaming platform is because of a boxing match threat she made.

Amouranth's beef with fellow steamer Adriana Chechik has been heating up recently, and it has come to a head as Amournath said on a YouTube stream "I'll say it here first, I'll challenge her in the ring. Catch me outside, how about that?" Threats of violence can get you slapped with a Twitch ban - even if via another platform. 

We're used to seeing Amouranth get banned, however, she's kept a clean record since she was last banned on Twitch, Instagram, and TikTok back in 2021. There's no solid evidence about her latest ban, but the Chechik theory is the best we've got so far. Then again, keeping up with what Twitch deems worthy of a ban is one hell of a task.
