Streamer Corinna Kopf moves to Facebook Gaming after ban
Streamer Corinna Kopf has had enough of Twitch.
The popular gamer announced on Twitter that she is leaving the biggest live broadcast platform on the web to stream exclusively on Facebook Gaming.
"Most of you know gaming has become a huge part of my life over the last year. As a female gamer, it's so important for me to find a home that not only empowers myself but also all of you, in order to make a positive impact in the gaming world," Kopf said.
She went on to say that she hopes her fans will support her on a platform she "truly believes in."
This news comes after Kopf teased a possible platform change earlier in the week. While her fans were left wondering where she was heading to, the move itself was not a big surprise to anyone who followers her on social media.
Kopf was banned from Twitch at the beginning of December for wearing a Chanel tank top while streaming, which the platform claimed was "undergarments."
“I got banned tonight on Twitch for wearing ‘undergarments.’ I was wearing a Chanel tank top. Girls body paint on Twitch and I get banned for that lmfao. Remember someone threw their cat, but I got banned for wearing a cute top," Kopf said in response.
The influencer's followers immediately came to her defense, stating that IRL streamers wear revealing clothing on stream every day. This made Kopf's ban even more of a controversy within the streaming community.
What made the ban even more of a shock was that the clip in question was over one year old.
“If we’re banning people for year-old clips, then I’ll start making my list right now,” Kopf said, mentioning fellow female streamer Alinity Divine.

After all the Twitch drama, it's not shocking that Kopf would want to start fresh on a new streaming platform. Facebook Gaming is also the new home of big names like DisguisedToast and ZeRo. Like her fellow Facebook Gaming streamers, Kopf's move was questioned by the streaming community.
YouTuber Daniel "KEEMSTAR" Keem called out Kopf on Twitter shortly after her announcement.
"Kind of a gold dig. But I love a good hustle. 50% congrats," he tweeted.
His followers immediately stood up for Kopf, stating that her decision was most likely fueled by Twitch's seemingly unfair ban. Kopf herself decided to keep the situation positive.
"We have so much in common! We both have careers because of other people," she tweeted back.
