This is the second time that Felipe Noronha has been banned from Twitch within a month. On April 18, 2020, the ex-pro player was suspended for seven days from the platform after using the word Mongoloid while playing with his friends during the broadcast.
At the time, YoDa apologized if he offended his viewers and showed a sense of frustration with the episode. Twitch has strict guidelines and a community that prohibits streamers from using offensive words during lives. Until the closing of this matter, Felipe Noronha's channel on the platform was inaccessible.
After the publication of this article, the YoDa team released an official note about the ban. See the streamer's position below.
"My second suspension, this time, was live, with more than 16k people online in the stream. The feeling of helplessness, frustration and embarrassment with my community, because I was not warned before, as in the first time. They simply canceled my account. during my Institute's campaign live. I do not agree with the form adopted and I am very sorry for my community, my image, my partners and sponsors ", says YoDa, who also promises to reevaluate his relationship with Twitch.
"I think there are several ways to raise awareness and deal with the situation. I am very sad because, after eight years of being a faithful platform, receiving such treatment in the middle of a live, focused on beneficent content, very disappointing. I do what I do by the community and also to help develop the scenario, so that other streamers can emerge, so that quality content is created in order to entertain and help even more people. Given these latest facts, it is evident that Twitch's attitude needs to change, because currently all the streamers I know work in fear and feel hostage to these punishments. I?m only sure of one thing: I will fight for our profession within our region to be respected by everyone, outside and within our Brazil ", completes the streamer.
