Kai Cenat, one of the most famous Twitch streamers of the past couple of years, got banned from the platform a while ago, but why was he banned? Apparently, Kai Cenat was banned due to "repeated explicit simulated sexual activity in GTA."

Kai Cenat recently got banned on Twitch, and fans started wondering the reason behind it. It was interesting because there were rumors about Kai leaving Twitch to join Kick, one of the newest streaming platforms that signed Adin Ross to make its name known. However, it turned out that Kai's ban wasn't anything related to it. According to Dexerto, he got banned due to "repeated explicit simulated sexual activity in GTA."

As seen above, Kai announced his ban on Twitter and kept it pretty simple. Even though the cause of Kai's ban is now public, we still don't know for how long he will stay banned. It is known that the ban is temporary, and he will get back to his regular streaming routine soon.

Rumors flew around about him joining Kick, the platform that wants to take the throne off Twitch's head. Kick has more "flexible" rules when it comes to explicitly and such. The company signed Adin Ross, and became a hot topic in no time. However, most fans have criticized the platform and Ross for their calls and actions.

    I stopped coming to this site because of Shaun’s ridiculous articles. Now I come back and it has descended into this. Clickbait twitchstreamer gossip. Sad. Wish there was a way to get a feed of just Martin and Ashwin’s articles.

      @Daffy, use the following filter in uBo my filters tab, apply changes, also tick “Parse and enforce cosmetic filters” and “Suspend network activity until all filter lists are loaded” under filter lists.

      ghacks.net##.hentry,.home-posts,.home-category-post:not(:has-text(/Martin Brinkmann|Ashwin/))

      It will only show posts of Martin and Ashwin then.

      Daffy – go here: https://www.ghacks.net/author/martin/ or here: https://www.ghacks.net/author/ashwin/ and scroll down. Their articles are listed, newest at the top.
      I’ve had enough as well and have just changed my bookmarks accordingly. This article was the last straw.

    So it appears that a guy named Kai Cennat has been banned from Twitch due to “repeated explicit simulated sexual activity in GTA.”. Well, as long as it’s only in GTA (sorry for that)!

    Never heard of Kai Cennat, hardly heard of Twitch. You learn everyday, the problem is you forget a lot as well.
