Forsen banned indefinitely for explicit animal content
Twitch variety streamer Sebastian "Forsen" Fors has been banned indefinitely from the platform for showing an inappropriate GIF.
"I'm currently banned for the horse gif," Forsen tweeted. "The ban is indefinite, which means undetermined ban duration. Unlucky."

The ban is indefinite which means undetermined ban duration.
Earlier in the week, a viewer allegedly sent Forsen a photo of a horse's penis. Unaware of the content, Forsen opened it while live streaming. This made it visible to everyone who was watching the stream.
Realizing what he'd just exposed his fans to, Fosren quickly closed the file. The streamer claimed he only showed it for "half a second" before immediately deleting the VOD and any clips related to the inappropriate picture.
The moment has quickly become known as the "horsen incident."
How long is Forsen banned for?
Forsen has been banned three times in 2020 and four times throughout his streaming career. Fans have been wondering how long this latest ban is for, and it now seems to be indefinite.
In September, Forsen was banned after a stream that mostly consisted of Minecraft. It was never made public why Forsen was banned in that case.
Earlier in the year, Forsen was banned for saying racially charged insults to Russian teammates while playing Valorant.
Banned for 2 weeks for saying retarded russians instead of retarded "people who cant participate in voice comms in valorant due to legal reasons". I guess I have some more time to beat up my half russian siblings now. nice— Sebastian Fors (@Forsen) May 11, 2020
It's now unclear when Forsen will be back on Twitch. Three strikes often leads to a permanent ban, but Forsen is a popular content creator who may be given some leniency from Twitch, which often seems to play favorites. It wasn't lost on some of Forsen's followers that the most popular female streamer on the platform, Imane "Pokimane" Anys, wasn't banned for accidentally showing nudity earlier in the year.
How much does Forsen make?
Forsen has over 1.4 million followers, making him a popular content creator on Twitch. He also has around 7,800 subscribers. He makes a minimum $2.50 a month from each subscriber, and likely more than that. That would be $234,000 per year at minimum before fees and taxes. That's also not counting any sponsorships and partnerships Forsen has, as well as whatever he makes off of donations and YouTube content.
