A Reddit user revealed he was banned from the popular live streaming platform Twitch for having a nickname based on President Donald J. Trump’s hit TV show “The Apprentice”, on an account he created in 2011.
Reddit user Teape showed emails revealing he was banned from Twitch last year for having an “inappropriate username” on an account he created in 2011. His Twitch username was D_Trump_Apprentice69, a reference to the president’s hit reality TV show that ran for 10 seasons before President Trump ran for president.
“This type of activity is not permitted,” a Twitch representative wrote in an email to the user, before encouraging him to review the platform’s policies “regarding Violence Against Others and/or Hate Speech.”
He was originally permanently IP-banned from Twitch for the pro-“Apprentice” nickname, and after contacting the platform had had the IP-ban reversed but continued to lose access to his account.

On his Reddit post, Teape wrote “I have never been racist or hateful on twitch, and I got perma banned for ‘hate speech’ because my name had Donald Trump in it.”
“I made my username back in 2011 before Trump even thought of running, for context,” said Teape. “Getting punished for [liking] the Apprentice apparently.”
This would seem to be part of a pattern for Twitch.
Earlier this month, Big League Politics reported that a far-left Twitch user and popular video game streamer Destiny advocated “real violence” against conservatives during a Twitch stream, and received no response from Twitch when we asked for a comment about why the user is allowed to do so on its platform.
Donnell, who has grown a reputation for using crass language to describe his views, told his guest that he “hates” conservatives, and has moved on to the “real violence level” when it comes to how to deal with them.
“You really do hate conservatives, don’t you?” Asked his guest during the Twitch live stream, to which Donnell responded in the affirmative.
“Very much so,” he said. “I’ve moved full on to the political violence level, or the real violence level, when it comes to conservative people.”
It appears the only way to understand Twitch’s policies is ideological: conservatives can be banned for a username with “Trump” featured, while leftists can threaten and advocate “real violence” against their political opponents with impunity.
RIGGED SHAM: Discord Bans Wall Street Bets Server for ‘Hate Speech’ as Small Investors Blow out Hedge Funds
Big Tech shills for oligarchs.
Discord has banned a popular r/WallStreetBets server from its service, with the timing of the ban coming as small investors make a killing through purchasing stocks ‘shorted’ by Wall Street hedge funds.
Discord took the weak excuse of “Hate speech” for banning the server.
Retail investors had been using the Discord server for speculate about finance and the stock market, discussing shorted stocks such as Gamestop, AMC, and Nokia. Wall Street hedge funds have bet on these companies to fail, borrowing almost 100% of their stock at dirt-cheap prices. The casino gamble has failed, with individual investors scooping up the uninflated stock and essentially driving up stock prices by hundreds of dollars.
The server has been on our Trust & Safety team’s radar for some time due to occasional content that violates our Community Guidelines, including hate speech, glorifying violence, and spreading misinformation. Over the past few months, we have issued multiple warnings to the server admin.
Today, we decided to remove the server and its owner from Discord for continuing to allow hateful and discriminatory content after repeated warnings.
To be clear, we did not ban this server due to financial fraud related to GameStop or other stocks. Discord welcomes a broad variety of personal finance discussions, from investment clubs and day traders to college students and professional financial advisors. We are monitoring this situation and in the event there are allegations of illegal activities, we will cooperate with authorities as appropriate.
What a coincidence- Discord decides to ban the server the very same day that retail investors buy into stocks uninflated by the biggest Wall Street fat cats.
The San Francisco tech company has now sought to interfere in free markets on behalf of powerful Wall Street interests, cracking down on the little guy with bogus accusations. Don’t count on them facing any scrutiny for the anti-competitive action from the mainstream media.
