Asmongold tests whether saying certain words would get him banned from Twitch

Twitch streamer Zack “Asmongold” has resumed streaming on his main Twitch channel after streaming on his alternate channel zackrawrr for the past few days.

Zack responded to a viral YouTuber’s claims that using certain controversial words would lead to a Twitch ban. To test this, Asmongold used a sentence containing all the “forbidden” words and later said:

“I guess we’ll see if I get banned tomorrow, right?”

Asmongold tests a YouTuber claim live on stream

Asmongold responded to Moon’s 27-minute video essay on Twitch, which outlined a timeline of several controversial events involving the live streaming platform.

At 11:39 minutes of the video titled Twitch is worse than you thinkMoon highlighted one of the platform’s Terms of Service guidelines, which stated:

“UPDATE: Effective December 16, 2020, Twitch has banned the use of the words “v*rgin”, “s*mp” and “i*cel” on their platform, both in chat and by the streamer.”

The World of Warcraft gamer believed that this TOS update was not in effect, but several fans disagreed with him. The streamer then tried to prove his point by using each of the banned words in the following statement:

“That didn’t happen. Okay, it did? Okay. I think people who complain about hot tub streams are v*rgins. who comment and complain about what I’m saying about hot tub streams in my chat are i*cels.”

Zack was then interested to know if his Twitch channel would be banned the following day:

“Because if I get banned tomorrow, that means I’m right…or he’s right. But if not, it looks like he’s not right. Yeah, this isn’t…it’s not true.”

The OTK (One True King) co-founder took the opportunity to make a sarcastic joke about taking a break from live streaming to grind out the upcoming season of Path of Exile:

“Goodbye, yes. Guys, like I said, I’ve heard there’s a new PoE season coming out. I feel a break coming.”


Fans react to the streamer’s clip

Over 150 viewers attended the YouTube comment section and fans were impressed by how quickly Zack was able to come up with the witty statement:
