Well known Twitch streamer and speedrunner Trihex has been banned from the live streaming platform after he had used a derogatory term on his stream.

Popular Twitch streamer, speedrunner and Tempo Storm member Mychael "Trihex" Jefferson has been officially banned from the Amazon owned live streaming platform after he had used a homophobic term while streaming. The use of the term that Trihex himself states was of a "derogatory nature" goes against the Terms of Service for Twitch. 

While live on his stream, Trihex called one of his friends a "f*****"" and has since been banned from twitch for an unspecified amount of time. With bans for the platform usually lasting for 30 days, such as the ban that fellow streamer and former professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) player Mohammed "m0E" Assad received for the use of the same slur, Trihex will likely be back streaming in a month's time. 

Trihex took to his Twitter account on Sunday, October 6th to address his ban and apologize for his use of the homophobic slur. The Twitch streamer and speedrunner explained that in his past he had frequented areas of the internet and chat rooms where the language that led to trihex being banned from the platform was "normalized". Trihex also went on to state that he would be using his time way to "reflect and reform" in order to stop the usage of the derogatory language by himself and his community.
