Kai Cenat Threatens to Leave Twitch if IShowSpeed Remains Banned


Prominent streamer Kai Cenat is considering leaving Twitch due to the ongoing suspension of fellow content creator IShowSpeed. Kai Cenat has been advocating for IShowSpeed’s ban to be lifted and expressed his belief during a conversation with the Twitch CEO. This is not the first time Kai has advocated for IShowSpeed, and if his ban is lifted, it could have implications for others who have been banned.

In a striking turn of events, Kai Cenat, a prominent and influential content creator renowned for his engaging livestreams and devoted audience, has announced his consideration of ending his association with the widely used streaming platform, Twitch. This decision is contingent upon the ongoing lack of resolution regarding the contentious suspension of fellow content creator IShowSpeed.

For those unfamiliar with these names, Kai Cenat and IShowSpeed reign as prominent figures in the realm of streaming today, commanding a global audience of millions of followers. Kai has solidified his position as the leading streamer on Twitch, thanks to his groundbreaking 2023 subathon that shattered numerous platform records. Similarly, IShowSpeed has amassed a staggering 20 million subscribers, though it’s worth noting that prior to his YouTube venture, IShowSpeed was an active streamer on Twitch. In 2021, IShowSpeed faced a permanent ban from the platform due to making sexist remarks during a show called E-Date.

Kai Cenat and IShowSpeed are known to be friends and frequently collaborate on hosting streams together. However, a prominent issue has arisen due to IShowSpeed’s Twitch ban. Twitch’s policy prevents banned streamers from returning to the platform, and this seems to be why Kai Cenat has been advocating for a reconsideration of IShowSpeed’s ban. His most recent effort took place just before the 2023 Streamy Awards during a livestream. He remarked that if IShowSpeed’s ban remains in place, he might consider leaving the platform. He then followed this up with a light-hearted comment, clarifying that his previous statement was made in jest.

Additionally, at the subsequent Streamy Awards event, both Kai and IShowSpeed had interactions with the CEO of Twitch. In the conversation with the Twitch CEO, Kai Cenat can be heard firmly expressing his belief that the ban on IShowSpeed should be lifted. Meanwhile, IShowSpeed was observed making a gesture of appeal, including kneeling, as he sought a reconsideration of his ban from the platform.

It’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time Kai has advocated for IShowSpeed’s unbanning from Twitch. Just earlier this month, Kai disclosed that he had a meeting with the Twitch CEO Dan Clancy, during which he passionately advocated for the prompt lifting of IShowSpeed’s ban. This appeal received an agreeable response from Clancy. While the outcome of IShowSpeed’s ban still hangs in the balance, the subject itself is quite intriguing. If the ban on IShowSpeed were to be lifted, it would undoubtedly elicit reactions from others who have been banned for similar reasons.
