Amazon-owned video-streaming platform Twitch has banned one of its most popular livestreamers Kai Cenat.

Kai Cenat holds the record for having the most subscriptions to his channel, with more than 300,000 at its peak.

A message on his twitch account shows “temporarily unavailable due to a violation of Twitch’s terms of service”.

Kai had also tweeted: “Banned.” with a barrage of questions from his followers at the comment section.

Twitch streamers typically play video games while chatting to viewers.

BBC reported that Cenat became one of the biggest names in streaming when he broke the subscription records previously set by Ludwig and Ninja, in March.

Twitch users can follow their favourite streamers and creators for free or support them by subscribing or gifting subscriptions to other viewers.

The basic subscription package costs £3.99 a month – $4.99 in the US – with additional tiers costing more.
