Pokimane had an even-keeled response after incurring a 48-hour Twitch ban for copyright violations.

The punishment was tendered on Jan. 8 when the creator – whose real name is Imane Anys – was streaming reactions to full episodes of Nickelodeon‘s Avatar: The Last Airbender. Anys was reacting in the bottom corner of the screen, and was roughly six hours into the 10-hour event when she was hit with the ban, according to Dexerto.

It marked the first time Anys had ever hosted a TV reaction, an increasingly popular format on Twitch, and the stream peaked at roughly 31,000 concurrent viewers, Dexerto reports.

“I’m not surprised and I don’t think this is unfair,” Anys tweeted in response to the news over the weekend. “In my opinion, it was inevitable that publishers would take action, on me or someone else, during this react meta.”

Anys is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, with 8.8 million followersPer Twitch’s policy on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), it terminates the accounts of “repeat infringers,” or those who accrue three copyright strikes.
