Shirahiko, who wants to change the Twitch title, said he received no warnings from Twitch when it edited its title “I hate women” but was caught by the warning of Twitch supervision policy when it changed the title to “I hate women”. Sharing a screenshot of the alerts with his followers, Shirahiko shared the post, saying “Even Twitch hates you”.
The post about Twitch’s sexism has received a number of reactions over a short period of time. While some users say hate speech should be fully audited, others argue hatred is an emotion too and should be freely expressed. The reason that hate speech against women is not allowed, and yet men are not obsessed with supervising is unknown. There is no official comment from Twitch yet.
