Twitch streamer suspended for Chun-Li cosplay

Twitch has temporarily suspended the account of streamer Quqco for violating its guidelines on “sexually suggestive content or activities.” The suspension arose following a weekend stream during which she was cosplaying as Street Fighter stalwart Chun-Li. As noted by Kotaku (and known by even casual Street Fighter fans), the outfit includes a thigh-high slit. But Quqco told the site that she “bought one size up to ensure that the slit wasn’t too high.” – Andy Chalk, PC Gamer » https://ift.tt/2LUvaab
