Why is JiDion banned from Twitch?
JiDion was banned from live streaming service Twitch after accusations of harassing Pokimane, as reported by Inven Global.
On 12 January 2022, Pokimane ended a Twitch stream early because she claimed people on JiDion’s stream were “whispering” people on hers.
“Whispering” is a way to DM someone you see in chat on Twitch and serves as a great way to chat privately without needing to move to a different platform.
However, Inven Global branded what happened a “hate raid”, a type of co-ordinated harassment.
Explore the streamer’s dramatic Twitter reaction
When he was informed of his ban from the platform, @Jidion6 took to Twitter with a screenshot of the notification informing him of his Twitch suspension and claimed the situation was “bigger then black and white”.
JiDion later shared a tweet in which he told followers his comeback stream would be “something pressure”.
He seemed to have come to terms with his suspension by the time he tweeted: “See y’all on Twitch in 13 days. I don’t need this attention to grow, I got y’all boys. Gonna speak to the Pogger community when I’m unbanned. Until then, we’re back to where we started.”
