Sodapoppin Twitch Ban Follows A Troll Apology Video From The Streamer

Popular Twitch streamer Sodapoppin recently got banned from the online game streaming service along with another streamer named Roflgator. Twitch doesn’t usually explain the reasons behind a user’s temporary or permanent ban from the service, however, the violation of its terms and community guidelines is mostly believed to be the cause.

Why was Sodapoppin banned from Twitch?

While the exact reason behind their suspension hasn’t been revealed, many believe that the ban had something to do with the Sodapoppin VRChat stream that involved some inappropriate sexual material. The video was streamed on July 17 and attracted over 10,000 viewers. According to reports, the video involved a number of in-game characters that were seen in revealing clothing such as lingerie. This seemingly violated the platform’s sexually explicit content guidelines, resulting in the Sodapoppin Twitch ban.

Sodapoppin has now released an apology video where he also details the possible reasons behind the suspension and what could have led to the outcome.

In the video, the streamer can be seen joking about his pursuit of female attention in the fifth month of lockdown. He also suggests that his VRChat perhaps had too much sexual content going on, all at the same time.

Twitch is one of the biggest online game streaming platforms which strongly values its community guidelines. The service seems to suspend a number of accounts every day which involves some of the most popular names in the gaming community and beyond. While the most recent suspension of Dr. Disrespect is still one of the most confusing ones, the platform has also banned the likes of Donald Trump.

For those unaware, Twitch’s Community Guidelines informs users that it allows some kind of in-game sexual content or nudity if only it is necessary to progress within a particular game. However, apart from this, it doesn’t expect its users to exceed this limit and it also prohibits users from engaging in any kind of simulated sexual activity or erotic roleplay. The community guidelines also state that the prohibition also applies to virtual reality.

Popular Twitch Streamer Sodapoppin Was Banned, but He’ll Probably Be Back Soon

If you ever spend your time watching Twitch streamers, then you’ve probably heard of Sodapoppin (real name: Chase Morris). He’s one of the most popular online streamers, with more than 2.7 million subscribers on Twitch and another 1 million subscribers on YouTube. His streams and videos have hundreds of millions of views, and he’s one of the top 10 most popular streamers ever.

Or, well, he was, until he got banned. On July 20, 2020, Sodapoppin was banned from Twitch. He doesn’t seem to have offered very much information about what led to the ban, but the internet has started putting the pieces together in order to solve the mystery. The good news is that Sodapoppin fans probably won’t have to wait very long to see their favorite streamer again. But why was he banned in the first place?

Why was Sodapoppin banned from Twitch?

First of all, you should know that as far as we can tell, Sodapoppin has not been involved in a huge scandal. In fact, fellow streamer roflgator (who was also banned), seems to have hinted at the fact that this ban is actually only a 24-hour ban rather than a permaban, meaning Sodapoppin’s Twitch account will most likely be back to normal in short order.

Also, this isn’t the first time Sodapoppin has been banned from the streaming platform. It has happened at least one other time in his streaming career and was a temporary ban at that point, too. There are two leading theories for what led to Sodapoppin’s recent Twitch ban — and just as a heads up, they’re both kind of bonkers.

The first theory is that Sodapoppin was banned after he streamed a game called Chair F**king Simulator. We won’t make you watch any footage of him playing it (because it is weird), but here’s a screenshot from the VOD:

So, yeah, you get the idea. The game — while not technically NSFW — is certainly pretty suggestive, so some people wonder whether Sodapoppin’s stream of the game could have landed him in hot water. However, we’re inclined to believe it was another stream that got him in trouble.

On July 17, 2020, Sodapoppin streamed a session in VRChat, a massive multiplayer online VR game where people can interact with one another as three-dimensional avatars. The game is free and you can make your avatar look like pretty much anything, so it probably won’t surprise you to learn that encounters in VRChat can often be sexual in nature. Without going into too much detail, Sodapoppin’s stream apparently got a little too ribald, and Twitch dropped the ban hammer.

Sodapoppin has released a tongue-in-cheek “apology” video on YouTube (which, fair warning, also features some NSFW language) and deleted the VOD of the VRChat stream, but he doesn’t seem too concerned about the ban. Seeing as how he is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers ever, we think it’s safe to assume he’ll be back to streaming regularly very soon. He may, however, want to reconsider whether to go back to VRChat in future streams.

Sodapoppin issues an 'apology' after Twitch ban

P

opular Twitch streamer Sodapoppin has been unbanned from Twitch after his account was blocked for just roughly one day.

He was banned on Monday, July 20 and released an "apology" video on social media after news of his ban spread.

The ban lasted one day and he has since had his channel unblocked.

A reputable Twitter account called @StreamerBans, which automatically sends out alerts when a Twitch Partner streamer has had their account banned, shared the news of Mr Morris' suspension in the early hours of this morning.

Almost 20 minutes after the first ban, another streamer by the name of Roflgator was given the same treatment by the streaming site.

According to Dot Esports, both Roflgator and Sodapoppin held a VRChat stream on July 17, leading many fans to think this may be the reason behind the ban.

VRChat is an online game where players enter virtual reality chatrooms and your avatars can interact with each other by using a VR headset.

While the official reason for his suspension is currently unknown, Mr Morris alluded to reports of sexually explicit content in an 'apology' which he uploaded to YouTube.

"I feel like I owe you guys an explanation for why my twitch channel was banned... again," he said.

There have also been reports online that the game being played in the VRChat session with Roflgator included multiple characters wearing revealing clothing, which potentially broke Twitch's Community Guidelines regarding sexually explicit content.

Roflgator, otherwise known as Robert, has alluded to the stream in question with Chance (Sodapoppin), tweeting that he would "Let Chance explain".

Indeed, Sodapoppin also addressed these claims while speaking to his followers: "My good friend and I Rob got desperate for some female attention during our fifth month of lockdown", he said.

"I haven't seen, touched, or talked to a girl in over two years. This is when we decided to enter the world of VRChat".

Responding to our request for comment regarding the ban, Twitch said: "To maintain the health of our community and promote content that is appropriate for a diverse audience, sexually suggestive content is prohibited on Twitch".

Twitch's official guidelines state: “When interacting with in-game nudity or sexual content in a permitted game, users may only spend as much time as is required to progress,” Twitch said. “In addition, users may not engage in simulated sexual activity or erotic roleplay—which includes the specific behaviours listed under Sexually Suggestive Content above—with other players in online games.

"Games that primarily consist of user-generated content, in-game roleplay or interactions in virtual reality are not exempt from this policy".

Sodapopping started his gaming career streaming World of Warcraft and today his Twitch channel has over 2 million subscribers.

Sodapoppin has been banned on Twitch

UPDATE: Sodapoppin released a satirical "I'm sorry" video in which he explains the reason behind his ban.

Although the video was made as a parody of "apology" videos YouTubers and streamers are usually making when they do something bad, from it we can safely assume that the reason for his ban was indeed the "sex dungeon" stream in VRChat, which you can see below in the original story.

 

Original Story:

Chance "Sodapoppin" Morris, a popular American Twitch streamer and internet personality, has been banned from Twitch this evening.

Sodapoppin, who is one of the biggest Twitch streamers with over 2.7 million followers and over 300 million views, started out as a World of Warcraft streamer, migrating from X-fire to Twitch.tv in 2012.

In the last few years, he became a variety streamer playing all kinds of games, and in recent weeks, he was mostly hanging around in VR Chat with other streamers.

Why is Sodapoppin banned on Twitch?

At the moment of writing this article, we don't currently know officially why is Soda banned on Twitch, but there are several potential reasons.

Soda himself said that he knows the reason why he was banned, but it looks like he will not share the reason behind the ban with his fans.

Currently, there are two theories circling around as a potential cause of this ban.

He recently played the game called "Chair F*cking Simulator" and you might guess based on the title what's this game's gameplay all about.

Although there's nothing explicit per se, actions in the game are very suggestive, as you can see in the clip below.

Some believe that playing this game on live stream is the main reason behind Soda's ban, while others think that it is absurd if Twitch really banned him only for that.

The second theory currently seems more plausible, and it includes VR Chat.

Is Sodapoppin banned because of VR Chat streams?

VR Chat is basically one big virtual chat room where people sit, talk and do other various activities.

The real issue comes with the player's avatars. Players in the game can take basically any avatar they want and things can get really weird really fast.

Soda had several drunk VRChat streams, but this one below is probably one of the reasons for the ban. Fans are calling this one "Sex Dungeon + Gimp Suit + Thicc Succubus".

Soda himself deleted the VOD from Twitch even before he was banned, but that apparently wasn't enough.

During this session, there were several moments that could be the reason behind the ban, including talking about drugs, sexual content, joking about paedophilia and rape, heavy alcohol abuse, and all other kinds of inappropriate behaviour.

Most of them are outright breaking the rules of Twitch and are offences that call for a suspension.

While this stream is most likely the reason behind the ban, some are noticing how this is even not the worst of Soda's VRChat streams, and that he had "way worse VR Chat streams".

Members of r/LivestreamFail subreddit are pointing out that while it is true that he had worse streams than this one, it is also true that he has been warned several times to "tone it down with VR Chat exploits."

Pluto, Twitch partner manager, tried to warn Soda several times that he needs to stop doing that, and some fans believe he was trying to help him stay out of trouble because it looks like Twitch is internally trying to put a stop to these kinds of VR chat streams, but Soda didn't listen to him and now he got banned.

VRChat streams are all the rage on Twitch this year, and while they can be quite funny and enjoyable experiences to watch, if you are into that kind of weird stuff, they can also escalate really quickly and become an issue both for Twitch as a platform and for streamers.

It will be interesting to see if Twitch has some bigger plans to completely ban VR Chat from their platform.

Why was Sodapoppin banned from Twitch?

Sodapoppin is the latest of streamers to be banned from Twitch, and this isn't the first time he has been banned from the platform.

'StreamerBans' on Twitter is usually the fastest source of information regarding bans on Twitch. Quickly after the news of Sodapoppin's ban from Twitch broke on Twitter, his frequent collaborator Roflgator was also banned.

This fanned the speculation that the reason for banning the pair has to do with a VR Chat stream they did on the 17th of July.

Twitch's Community Guidelines with regards to sexual content on streams and nudity states:

"When interacting with in-game nudity or sexual content in a permitted game, users may only spend as much time as is required to progress.

In addition, users may not engage in simulated sexual activity or erotic roleplay—which includes the specific behaviours listed under Sexually Suggestive Content above—with other players in online games. Games that primarily consist of user-generated content, in-game roleplay, or interactions in virtual reality are not exempt from this policy."

Why was Sodapoppin banned from Twitch

The very last line in their Community Guidelines specifically mentions virtual reality games, the significant speculation regarding the ban looks more like fact.

Sodapoppin himself made an "apology" video on Youtube explaining the reason for his ban, since Twitch doesn't come out and explain the reason themselves usually.

In the video, he mentions the VR Chat and humorously explains the events of the stream and makes sarcastic remarks at the sweater Twitch gifted him.

Twitch's policy regarding bans has been to never publicly making a statement regarding the reason for the ban. This is likely to be the case with Sodapoppin's ban from the platform as well.

A lot of the gaming community speculates the ban will be temporary and Sodapoppin will be back on Twitch soon enough.

Why did Sodapoppin get banned from Twitch? Apology video hints at an explanation

Twitch bans seem to happen every day with the most famous, confusing, and mysterious involving the permanent removal of Dr. Disrespect. The removal of Dr. Disrespect continues to be talked about to the point where it has now turned into a publicity stunt, but there are other internet streamers who have been banned including Sodapoppin. Plenty of people have been asking why did Sodapoppin get banned from Twitch, and his apology video hints at the reason most people had already guessed.

Aside from Dr. Disrespect, the likes of DarkSydePhil and even Donald Trump have been banned from Twitch. The streaming platform rarely ever explains why they have chosen to temporarily or permanently remove someone from their platform, but you can usually figure out why by looking over the community guidelines.

However, aside from checking the community guidelines, sometimes streamers offer apology videos and this is what has happened with Sodapoppin.

Why is Sodapoppin banned from Twitch?

There’s no official explanation for why Sodapoppin is banned from Twitch.

However, it’s believed that Sodapoppin is banned from Twitch because of a VRChat stream that occurred on July 17th.

Pokémon Legends Arceus: A familiar region. A new story.

Per Dot eSports, there were multiple in-game characters wearing revealing clothing such as lingerie during the broadcast.

While the Twitch community guidelines state that brief in-game nudity and sexual conduct is permitted, they also warn that “users may not engage in simulated sexual activity or erotic roleplay”.

Sodapoppin’s apology video

Sodapoppin has uploaded an apology video on YouTube.

In this apology video titled “I’m sorry,” Sodapoppin suggests he was banned from Twitch for the VRChat stream.

Again, Twitch hasn’t provided an official explanation for why he is banned, but the internet streamer has joked that there was “too much sexual content going on all at once” in his broadcast.

While the ban is disappointing for his fans, it shouldn’t be too long before he’s streaming again.

Now discussing:

Popular streamer Sodapoppin’s Twitch channel has been banned, although the exact reason has not been confirmed.

Twitter account @StreamerBans, which automatically tweets when Twitch partners are banned, tweeted at 8:21pm CT that Sodapoppin had been banned. Nearly 20 minutes before Soda’s ban, streamer Roflgator was hit with a ban, which has led some fans to think the bans are related to a VRChat stream the pair did on July 17.

During the stream, multiple in-game characters wore revealing clothing, including lingerie. Twitch outlines its rules regarding sexually explicit content in games in its Community Guidelines.

“When interacting with in-game nudity or sexual content in a permitted game, users may only spend as much time as is required to progress,” Twitch said. “In addition, users may not engage in simulated sexual activity or erotic roleplay—which includes the specific behaviors listed under Sexually Suggestive Content above—with other players in online games.  Games that primarily consist of user-generated content, in-game roleplay, or interactions in virtual reality are not exempt from this policy.”

Neither Sodapoppin or Roflgator have made a public statement about their bans. Per Twitch policy, the platform has not said the reason or duration of their bans.
