Daniel Negreanu’s Twitch Bans Poker Pro channel – One of poker’s biggest stars has been banned from streaming on Twitch after a recent outburst was directed at one of its viewers in chat.
Daniel Negreanu, at least temporarily, was booted from Twitch, according to a Twitter post from a bot tracking banned streamers. Twitter account, @StreamerBans, states in the bio that it is not associated with Twitch in any way.
Sunday afternoon, the account tweeted that “DNegsPoker” had been blocked. The account uses the hashtag #firstban in the post, and tweeted after Negreanu’s announcement, the account uses the hashtags #thirdban and #fifthban in reporting other booted streamers, so it’s likely a six-time WSOP bracelet winner will be allowed back on Twitch soon. The 46-year-old has used the platform to broadcast his games live at online WSOP events.
Twitch’s move comes days after Negreanu spoke profanity laden with profanity during one of his WSOP online streams. During the July 24th no-limit eight-max hold’em event worth $ 400, one viewer in the chat made a comment that sparked the GGPoker ambassador.
During the 40 seconds of scolding, Negreanu told the audience that he would “break his teeth” and “feed him anally”. The clip attracted attention and was shared across social media with mixed reactions.
According to Negreanu’s Twitter feed, viewers made harsh remarks about Negreanu’s wife, Amanda, who is a former poker reporter, presenter and host of the now defunct PokerStars, The Big Game.
