Twitch streamer BadBunny said she has been suspended by the platform for three days for “adult nudity.” But she maintains it was an accident.
On Twitter, BadBunny on Monday posted the email she received from Twitch about her temporary ban, and she ended the tweet with the smiley face with sunglasses emoji. In the explanation, Twitch told her she had been suspended because a recent clip of “you and a friend in Just Chatting … involved you getting up from the couch and exposing your crotch area without any coverage.”
I’m banned for the next 3 days for “adult nudity”

One person responded, with a winking face emoji, that she “should post the offending material on here so we can judge if it was really offensive.” BadBunny responded to that by saying, “I actually asked for a screenshot of the nudity. I really want to see the extent of the violation.”
In one screenshot posted online, BadBunny—who has about 85,000 followers—doesn’t appear to be wearing underwear as she shifts her position on the couch (though she said on Twitter that she actually was wearing undergarments). But she was more concerned about the possibility of what she thought might be revenge porn when it showed up on the r/LiveStreamFail subreddit.
She also didn’t understand why somebody watching her stream would report her for a Terms of Service violation when it appeared to be accidental and quick.
“Yeah, it’s really sad,” BadBunny said on Twitter. “Only one person in my community watching at the time noticed a potential TOS moment. Everyone else noticed nothing. These reporting weirdos really live for these moments.”
According to the Twitch community guidelines, a streamer can be punished for “attire intended to be sexually suggestive and [for] nudity … Attire (or lack of attire) intended to be sexually suggestive includes undergarments, intimate apparel, or exposing/focusing on male or female genitals, buttocks, or nipples.”
In January, Twitch streamer Lucia Omnomnom was given a three-day ban after she took off her top in front of the camera she didn’t realize was still broadcasting her—she received plenty of harassment in the aftermath. Last month, sweetsaltypeach was banned for baking in see-through shorts.
