Female Twitch streamers: banned gaming queens
Though, female players don’t always have only success stories. For example, LegendaryLea became one of these unlucky Twitch users who were banned. The player had 650 000 followers but one misconduct significantly wavered her gaming career: the girl showed the inner side of her thigh and was banned by the service for a short period of time – a month.
Another famous banned player is PinkSparkles. The girls showed too many revealing and sexually explicit things on Twitch to draw more followers’ attention. She was often streaming games in revealing clothes or even without it: just in a small bikini, sitting in the pool. However, these attempts to gain popularity didn’t lead to success and she was banned.
Alinity, one of the most popular female Twitch streamers, was banned by the service because of her clothes as well. Her tiny shorts and almost nude body became the reason for a ban. In addition to this, the girl unintentionally shared her pornographic videos and photos with her followers.
As you can see, girls streamers keep pace on Twitch with their male fellows. They steal the hearts of followers by gaming skills, beauty, and charming smiles and earn thousands, and even millions of dollars, with the help of it. These ladies are the queens of Twitch who proved that games and females can be a good couple.
As mentioned earlier, the winners of the Game Awards 2019, one of the biggest events in the gaming industry, were announced.
