Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev has once again been banned from Twitch. The CS:GO superstar has received his fourth ban from the live broadcast platform due to language used on stream.
The Ukrainian Natus Vincere player was quick to explain what he believes to be the reasoning behind his fourth ban. During a game another player chose to use homophobic slurs in an effort to get s1mple banned since he was live on Twitch at the time.
After a bit of a back-and-forth, s1mple referred to the word to during the argument which he places the blame on for his ban.
“It’s funny that I get banned for aggression towards a person that says the word “Pidor” and specifically tries to ban me on the platform and I try to condemn him for this and say the forbidden word because I have a negative attitude towards it (because of rules),” he Tweeted.
As of now there’s no exact timeframe for the length of his ban, a 7-day ban is expected due to his prior infractions. Repeat offenders are typically met with harsher consequences and given this is his fourth ban, the 24-hour of three day bans have probably met their limit.
Given the situation, fans of the esports celebrity will have to wait to see s1mple stream again but don’t worry, he’ll still be practicing and competing with his team.
