President Donald Trump's Twitch account has been suspended for violating the streaming platform's hateful conduct rules. "Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch," a Twitch spokesperson said in a statement. "In line with our policies, President Trump's channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed." The spokesperson also reiterated a previous statement from the company that politicians are not exempt from its Terms of Service or Community Guidelines, regardless of how newsworthy the content may be.
The new statement specifically cited comments from the president's recent rally in Tulsa, where he mentioned a "very tough hombre" breaking into a woman's home, and an except for a recently rebroadcast 2016 campaign event where Trump said "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
Twitch has not announced the length of Trump's ban. The move comes just days after the platform issued a round of other high profile suspensions.
