Twitch hit streamer Kaceytron with an indefinite suspension, saying she violated its Terms of Service and more specifically engaged in “hateful conduct and threats of violence against a person or group of people.”

Kaceytron revealed her suspension via Twitter by posting the image of her suspension notice and saying she was suspended because of an “insensitive comment [she] made last week.”

The comment she is likely referring to is a joke about COVID-19, which she said on Rajj Patel’s stream. When Patel asked Kaceytron if she would kiss a guy on the show if he had the coronavirus, she responded with a joke.

“Yes, and we would leave quarantine and try to spread it as much as possible because the world would be a better place without old and poor people.”

Kaceytron said the joke was in poor taste and the comment was a “poor reflection of [her] character.”

Kaceytron has averaged about 800 viewers on her stream this year and has more than 500,000 followers.
