Twitch streamer Macaiyla has come forward with a bit of an explanation about her latest Twitch ban.

Macaiyla was banned on June 3, leaving fans to wonder what exactly had led to her ban and how long she would be suspended from the streaming platform. Many guessed it was due to her recent anti-Asian comments made on Twitter regarding her time spent in Korea, while others wondered if it was due to inappropriate animal videos being shared on her broadcasts.

After a day of silence, Macaiyla decided to respond to her Twitter ban on Twitter.

Why was Macaiyla banned from Twitch?

Macaiyla tweeted after her ban that she will be off the platform for two weeks due to hateful conduct towards a particular group. Macaiyla didn’t specify what exactly led to the “hateful conduct” penalty, but added that it wasn’t about Koreans or Asians.

“I’m still shocked at the reasoning,” Macaiyla said.

The controversial streamer added that she will reveal the reason behind her ban once the two-week suspension is over. Meanwhile, she tweeted that she felt many of her followers would be surprised what led to the punishment.

Macaiyla made sure to tell fans that she wasn’t too upset about the latest Twitch suspension. While she will be appealing the decision with Twitch, Macaiyla said that it was a bit of a wakeup call for her.

“I’ll be 24 this year. Joking or not, I have no reason to act this way. I’m an adult. I gain nothing from this. I don’t act this way offline so why do it online? It’s sad. I want to be a better example for my family one day. Not whatever this is,” Macaiyla said.

Macaiyla added that she is going to “try and reflect” on her past actions. She tweeted that she wants to have more self-awareness and make better use of her platform.

“Most people don’t get this chance. I’ll work on it,” Macaiyla said.
