I mean streamers will do anything for attention these days so I wouldn't be surprised if they see it as such.
While not inaccurate, that's a very bleak take for the ban reason, even by twitch standards.
The video looks really faked for sure, but I’ve thought the same in other occasions and then they turned out be real. I hope everyone is alright. Fuck guns and fuck robbers.
I know streamers can do a lot for attention, but staging a robbery where a gun gets ACTUALLY fired in the city in such an erratic manner? I'd like to think nobody would be that stupid. It's one thing to wave a fake gun, but this doesn't seem fake, the screaming woman also seems scared and in genuine shock.
Justin TV-Smollett amirite.
It's the scream that made it seem weird to me. When shots are fired, people duck their heads and run on instinct, not scream and draw attention to themselves.
Are you suggesting that videos of shootings should not be taken more seriously?
The streamer. Is he the one shooting at people, or the one being shot at? The way OP describes it, I understand the streamer is the one being shot at. Twitch can easily remove the VOD without taking down his channel. Or has he actually asked to be shot at?
Given the recent live streamings of mass shootings, I would not be surprised if there is a blanket policy to lock down channels immediately. You can always restore the channel later once you have all the details.
I mean it could be faked but this is a weird take. Been in a room full of people where someone popped off 3 shots and it was tons of screaming along with people running and dropping to the floor.
That is the absolutely terrifying part. When this shit really happens, it doesn't seem real at all.
