Disguised Toast banned on Twitch after streaming Death Note

Popular range banner Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang has actually been prohibited from Twitch, after enjoying the anime Death Note on Stream. The restriction came down on Monday night.

While the factor for the restriction is not formally verified, it’s most likely an outcome of a DMCA copyright strike bied far to Jerk by the rights holders of the anime. The restriction seems comparable to the one provided to Imane “Pokimane” Anys on Friday night. Anys, who streams for Offline television, the exact same streaming group as Wang, got a DMCA grievance while streaming Avatar: The Last Airbender and was prohibited live on stream also.

However, Anys’ punishment wasn’t too harsh. The suspension of her channel only lasted 48 hours, according to her tweets, before it was brought back online. Anys then went live with a 12-hour long stream on Monday morning, the day after she got her account back, and averaged around 27,000 viewers for most of the stream. Based on numbers from Twitchtracker, that’s around 6,000 more than she has averaged over the last month.

While the situations certainly seem similar, it’s still unclear if Wang’s channel will be back up in the exact same time frame as Anys’ channel. Wang himself has actually not offered an official comment on the ban, instead tweeting, “they really couldn’t have waited 20 more minutes huh?”

Many Twitch streamers over the last few months have been watching and reacting to copyrighted content in what streamers are calling the “TV meta.” While this meta has actually garnered many streamers impressive viewer numbers, the threat of DMCA strikes from the original owners of the shows was always looming. And with a second restriction, it appears more could be on the way if banners continue to broadcast various copyrighted material.

This story will be upgraded as more details appears.
