Popular Brazilian streamer Gaules’ suspension from Twitch has expired after nearly 10 hours, the 37-year-old celebrated on Twitter.
Gaules’ Twitch channel was taken down earlier today in the middle of his NBA broadcast of a game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder. This sparked a reaction from the Brazilian community, who got the hashtag #FREEGAU on Twitter’s trending topics. His fans feared that Gaules wouldn’t be able to broadcast the PGL Stockholm Major playoffs today, which will see the only Brazilian CS:GO team still alive in the tournament, FURIA, face Gambit at 10:30am CT.
The former professional Counter-Strike player and coach turned content creator was optimistic about getting unbanned over the past few hours. As usual, Twitch didn’t reveal the reasoning for his ban. The Amazon-owned platform leaves the decision to reveal it or not up to the streamers.
Gaules is one of the most successful streamers on Twitch. The 37-year-old has over 3 million followers on the streaming platform, a plethora of subscribers, and is the most-watched content creator on Twitch in the past 14 days, according to SullyGnome.
The unban is great news for the Brazilian community, who will be able to follow FURIA vs. Gambit with their beloved streamer. Gaules could end up having at least 200,000 people watching the game on his channel.
Gaules is already live on Twitch and he might explain what triggered the ban to his fans.
