Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa and Jenelle “Indiefoxx” Dagres, two contentious Twitch personalities, were banned earlier today. The suspensions are a message to meta and category offenders who have turned to ASMR streams when their hot tub meta views began to dwindle.
In response to the Twitch bans, both Amouranth and Indiefoxx have made fun of the situation on Twitter.
Indiefoxx jokes about spa day with Amouranth after Twitch bans both their accounts
Hey @Amouranth wanna go to a spa since we both have the weekend off? I could really use a tongue massage.

Their current attempt sees them shift into ASMR feeds as content providers who have transitioned to a more gimmicky kind of entertainment. They provide services such as licking their microphones for a few dollars and tattooing their subscribers’ names on their bodies.
Naturally, evading the Twitch Terms of Service in a way that puts them in a gray area wasn’t going to last long, and the platform has now taken action against their streams.
Looks like the hot tub meta got too low on numbers without the just chatting section carrying it. Time to move to ASMR! Lol what a joke man.

During the hot-tub meta days, Twitch had issued a statement. The corporation claimed to keep a close eye on what was appropriate and to have followed through on its promises to take action against violators.
“So, hot-tub meta. I think there are a couple of people in chat that is asking about the hot-tub meta, and we are going to talk about it. So, we understand at Twitch that this is getting a lot of attention from the community lately, and we have been watching closely. Our nudity and attire policy does allow bathing suits in an appropriate context, and hot-tubs do fall under that criteria. However, what has not changed is the sexually suggestive and explicit content is not allowed under the guidelines, under the TOS and Twitch will take action when that is reported to us.”

Amouranth and Indiefoxx, on the other hand, appear unconcerned, continuing to link their many business activities and dismissing the prohibition as a minor annoyance.
