US Army’s Twitch Channel Banning People Who Talk About War Crimes

us army twitch

Last week we brought you a story about an incident that went down in the chat of a recent Twitch broadcast by the US Army in which the chat started asking about war crimes.

Now, the esports team’s twitch channel is ramping up efforts to combat the conversation (or questioning) revolving around the topic of war crimes from popping up in chat during another one of their live streams now or in the future.

There are a number of esports teams under the US Army umbrella, which runs and operates a number of associated social media accounts, including a Discord.

The brands, highlighted by the US Army Twitch channel, have been going on a ban-spree for users that may bring up the topic of war crimes during any of their broadcasts, however, despite their claims that people that do so should be banned off of Twitch, the ACLU thinks otherwise:

 

The US Army’s response has been criticized, especially the response of the streamer who was playing Call of Duty during the incident last week, so they aren’t exactly endearing themselves to viewers.

Considering that their channel is used to market and advertise the Armed Forces, they don’t seem to be doing much to establish even base relationships or rapport with viewers, unless you share their exact point of view.
