Why was JiDion permanently banned from Twitch?

The saga began at the start of the year, when the YouTuber rallied his viewers for a hate brigade in fellow Twitch personality Imane "Pokimane's" Twitch chat room. After he instructed his viewers to spam the phrase "L + Ratio," the livestreaming platform issued him a temporary, 14-day-long suspension.

The two-week ban was turned into a permanent suspension a few days later:

The controversy between the two creators began to fade when the YouTuber apologized to the Twitch sensation for his antics. Since then, both have been on good terms and have also collaborated once together.

Come July 15, JiDion revealed that he got into a call with a Twitch representative to talk about his current status on the platform.

He tweeted that he would be "(n)ever coming back," with Twitch explaining that JiDion will not be unbanned because he violated community guidelines by displaying "extreme harassment."
