Popular Twitch streamer quqco has been suspended from the platform, saying she “deserved it” after using artificial breasts as a ploy.
Twitch has strict rules regarding sexual content, but will take into account the context of any particular incident to determine what actions will be taken.
As a rule, such bans are issued for an open violation of the rules with explicit content or for accidental mistakes that a panicked streamer tries to fix immediately.
However, in the case of quqco, it was a simple support, because of which she got into hot water along with the platform.
The popularity of quqco at the beginning of 2022, with more than 100,000 subscribers on Twitch, has increased dramatically, and in April it was watched by an average of 2,500 people at the same time.
Although she has streamed a lot of games, most of her streaming is in the “Just Chat” section. On January 10, she got a rubber jumpsuit for her chest.
Unfortunately for quqco, this prop seems to have crossed the line of Twitch community principles. Although, perhaps, it was not just the support separately, but also her actions on the stream that led to the ban.
Confirming her three-day ban on the platform, quqco posted a clip in which she draws attention to her new, albeit fake, chest, which makes suspension even more likely.

This is due to the fact that, although the Twitch rules do not go so far as to prohibit any form of cleavage, they stipulate that “explicit gestures towards the chest, buttocks or genitals” are prohibited.
Some commentators were surprised that this incident led to the suspension, giving examples of what they considered more obvious violations by other streamers who went unpunished.
The ban will be in effect for only three days, after which the quqco channel will be restored.
