Twitch streamer kaceytron has been suspended indefinitely from streaming platform due to "engaging in hateful conduct and threats of violence against a person or group of people." This ban stems from a joke that kaceytron made that she has since labeled "insensitive" and in "poor taste."

In a recent rajjpatel stream that kaceytron was a part of, the conversation led to talk about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. During the stream, kaceytron joked that she would leave quarantine and attempt to spread the virus "as much as possible" because "the world would be a better place without old and poor people." A clip of this comment was uploaded to the popular LivestreamFails subreddit, where it quickly became popular and likely caught the attention of Twitch.

In a tweet acknowledging her ban, kaceytron explained that she does not "condone hatred towards any person and [the joke] was a poor reflection of my character." She also asked that her fans "remain calm and rational." She also said that her coronavirus comment being a joke does not excuse her saying it.
