Twitch Bans Amouranth, IndieFoxx for ASMR Streams

ASMR is not a new Twitch category. It's been around for a long time and most of its content has been fairly innocent - until now.

It was only until recently that the hot tub meta on Twitch died down. Yet, it hasn't taken long for the same to find a way to reinvent themselves on the streaming platform.

Popular streamers such as Kaitlyn "Amouranth" Siragusa and Jenelle "IndieFoxx" Dagres, in particular, have taken to the ASMR category. 

Both have recently been seen uploading performances of themselves doing fairly suggestive ASMR routines.

This naturally drew the ire of other more wholesome streamers in the same category, with many calling for Twitch to take action, and that Twitch certainly did.

As of June 19, both Amouranth and IndieFoxx have been banned from the streaming platform.
