Dalauan Sparrow, also known as LowTierGod, a popular content creator known for his confrontational personality in the fighting game community, has been banned from Twitch on June 5. This recent ban adds to the growing list of prominent Twitch bans that have occurred in 2023.
LowTierGod has faced several challenges in the past six months. His YouTube channel was permanently banned in late 2022, prompting him to transition to Twitch, although he had previously left Twitch for YouTube due to a previous ban. However, shortly after his return to Twitch, he faced another ban, which lasted for one week and concluded on May 5.
LowTierGod has once again been banned from Twitch, but this time the ban was relatively short-lived, lasting only seven hours. Twitch has a policy of not providing public comments on individual account sanctions, so the specific reasons behind LowTierGod’s ban remain undisclosed. Fans of the streamer are left awaiting any official explanation that LowTierGod may choose to share regarding the ban. As of now, he has not disclosed any information regarding the reason for the ban.

While it is purely speculation at this point, a viewer theory suggests that LowTierGod’s latest ban on Twitch may be attributed to a movie scene featuring nudity that was shown during one of his streams. Twitch’s Community Guidelines clearly state that the broadcasting of content containing real and uncensored nudity is prohibited. If this theory holds true, it could explain the relatively short duration of the suspension, as Twitch bans for more severe offenses, such as hate speech, typically result in longer suspensions. However, without an official statement from Twitch or further clarification from LowTierGod himself, it remains uncertain as to the exact reason for his latest ban.
Despite his latest ban on Twitch, LowTierGod’s fanbase on the platform remains strong, with nearly 180,000 followers on his LowTierGod channel. While he has also been exploring other platforms like Kick, his following there is significantly smaller, indicating that Twitch is still his primary source of income and audience engagement.
Given the importance of Twitch to his streaming career, LowTierGod may feel compelled to maintain better behavior going forward. However, his past actions and controversies suggest that it may be challenging for him to do so. Many of his followers have come to expect his on-screen rage, which is permitted within certain limits by Twitch. Additionally, his career has been marred by incidents such as being banned from Capcom’s Street Fighter 5 due to a transphobic outburst, indicating that further disruptions to his streaming endeavors may be likely in the future
