Twitch was the center for yet another streamer controversy last week when Heather Kent, better known as HeatheredEffect to her audience, breastfed her baby on stream while talking with a friend. It wasn’t too long after that that the clip was removed from Twitch citing sexual content.
This started the debate on whether breastfeeding is something that should be allowed on Twitch or not, mirroring the ongoing debate of whether or not it should be allowed in public (which it is). Twitch isn’t well known for their transparency on enforcing their TOS or lack thereof, but in this case the incident was resolved quickly. Heather had reached out to Twitch arguing that breastfeeding isn’t a lewd act and a such, doesn’t violate Twitch’s terms of service. Twitch has responded to Heather regarding the matter.
