Twitch apologizes to Ryan Higa after wrongful ban for “hateful conduct”

Twitch has apologized to Ryan Higa after the streamer was banned briefly for “hateful conduct” on March 25. The wrongful ban was overturned after 20 minutes, but not without questions being raised.

Ryan Higa was streaming Among Us with the OfflineTV crowd on March 25 when a swift end was brought to the shenanigans after his Twitch account was banned.

The 30-year-old Youtube legend, who has been creating content since 2004, was taken aback by the suspension, which was reportedly for “hateful conduct.”

“My stream just ended and I went to go look for an email and that’s what it says,” he said to the rest of the streamers in the Among Us game.

However, 20 minutes after his account was banned, Twitch quickly reversed their decision.

The platform cited that he was banned by mistake, although they didn’t disclose what went down behind the scenes.
