Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev, one of Natus Vincere’s riflers looks to be banned from Twitch. First spotted by Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, the discovery has raised quite some hue and cry in the CSGO community.

Redditors from subreddit r/csgo have been speculating the reason for the ban. Some suggest a DMCA takedown due to the use of copyrighted music on stream, while others suggest a blanket ban by Twitch for “unprofessional behavior”. s1mple has known to be toxic and indulge in fits of rage during streams before, and it seems Twitch might have taken an offense to that.
s1mple himself hasn’t given a clarification about the ban. Perhaps he himself hasn’t heard from Twitch regarding the ban, yet.
