Twitch partner Cribazz permanently banned from Twitch after hurling vile transphobic abuse at drag streamer

·2-min read

Cribazz, a Twitch partner who as suspended last week for targeting a drag streamer with homophobic and transphobic abuse, has been permanently banned from Twitch.

Cribazz, who received partner status on the first day of Pride (1 June) was given a seven-day suspension after various LGBT+ streamers called him out over targeted harassment on QueenNickiMirage’s chat.

The suspension, which was derided as being woefully inadequate by many streamers, has now been converted into a permanent ban by Twitch, who cited violations of their terms of service for ‘Appropriate Content’.

Sharing a screenshot of the email on his Twitter, Cribazz gave thanks for all the support he supposedly received.

A video of the incident was recorded by fellow drag streamer Deere who recorded the harassment live in the chat, then shared it in a tweet. The widely-condemned clip showed Cribazz hurling transphobic and homophobic abuse at QueenNickiMirage.

Many members of the LGBT+ gaming community called for Twitch to act immediately, demanding Cribazz’s account be stripped of his partnership and for the streamer to be permanently banned. This has now taken place.

This is not the first time Cribazz had been called out for similar transphobic and misogynistic content across his other streams, as many pointed out that he used to make hateful YouTube videos and TikToks, which resurfaced in light of this event.

With June being the month of Pride, Twitch announced at the beginning of the month that they would be celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community and its content creators. Just last month, Twitch streamers celebrated as brand-new tags including the ‘transgender’ and ‘Black’ one went live.
