Given that over the past year new ways of insulting other people have become ore abundant, Chief Operating Officer, Sara Clemens has announced new revisions to Twitch’s Hateful Conduct and Harassment Policy.
Moving forwards with their efforts to build a safe platform for everyone, Twitch will be prohibiting the usage of the words “incel”, “simp” and “Virgin” as insults. This revision to the Hateful Conduct and Harassment Policy seeks to deal with the vast array of “derogatory statements about another person’s perceived sexual practices or sexual morality.” It was also stated by Twitch that only using those words will not lead to resulting consequences but if they are used in a harassing manner consistently, then action will be taken.
Twitch’s Hateful Conduct and Harassment Policy will be fully revised on Jan. 22nd 2021.
