Pedguin banned over parody hentai emotes

The 28-year-old has been hit with the ban hammer for the first time in his 10-year streaming career.
Streamer and content creator Peter "Pedguin" Mann has been sidelined from Twitch allegedly over his channel’s emotes.

The controversial characters were put in question late last month when Twitch removed his Winnie The Pooh hot tub stream emote for “imagery of sexual content or nudity.”

Even after modifications like taking out the tears and saliva from the ahegao-like emote or covering the buttcheeks and torso of the compromised Winnie The Pooh, Pedguin has been banned for an undisclosed amount of time.

“It's not a permanent ban”, the 28-year-old confirmed. “It's upsetting though as I don't think I abused the system. They never told me what was specifically wrong with my emotes, I tried changing the suffixes and the emotes to appease Twitch without guidance, but alas, a ban.”

The biggest problem with the ban is how emotes have an approval process and system in place to deviate from any inappropriate and potential banning-worth shenanigans in any streamer’s chats.

This is only the latest in the scandals column as Twitch has been found to be at the epicentre of plenty of controversial topics regarding its terms of services since kicking off the year 2021 -- the biggest of which is still the evergrowing hot tub streamer drama and its fallout.

Whilst the streaming platform proclaims that “being found sexy is not against the rules”, it has put its foot down by banning licking ASMR creators in suggestive poses that were originally deemed within the rules and bylaws.

Now, the Amazon-owned company is in hot water again for failing to instruct one of its longest-tenured streamers at over 10 years with the platform and seven as a Twitch partner on what he did wrong, and the people have taken notice.

We’ll keep you updated as the situation develops.
