Forsen Has Been Banned for a Second Time on Twitch in 2020
Even if you don’t know the name of Sebastian “Forsen” Fors, you know doubt know one of his emotes: monkaS comes from him. He’s a fairly controversial figure on Twitch for various reasons, but as of Sept. 9, Forsen saw his second ban on the Twitch platform for 2020. There’s a rumor that it may be a permaban, as this is his second offense, but what was the offense? That’s the confusing part. There doesn’t seem to be any word about why, and Forsen has yet to speak up about it.
Nothing so far! His Twitter is eerily quiet, other than an advertisement for yesterday’s stream. Could it have been something in that stream? Perhaps. But let’s be real – Twitch isn’t always quick on the draw about stuff like this. This news was broken thanks to the @StreamerBans Twitter account, and as of today, the Forsen Twitch channel still does not exist.
Perhaps this will be a few days or a couple of weeks. But what does Forsen do that is inappropriate on Twitch? His fanbase is known as “Forsen Bajs,” and Bajs is Swedish for feces. So yes, they’re all Forsen’s excrement in that light. That’s weird and gross, but hardly offensive. It also kind of sounds like “Forsen boys,” as in his friends or pals. But personally, this author does not keep up with his streams.
Another popular thing on his stream is the “Gachi” streams, which are music live streams. His fans seem to love it but borders very close in inappropriate and banworthy. Gachi is a Japanese word for “muscular” and connected to Gachimuchi, which is used to describe a muscular gay man. It also means muscular and handsome, but that’s not how it is used in memes/slang. Gachi Music tends to mix gay porn voices/sounds with soft music, as an avant-garde style of music. It may challenge heteronormative standards, but it’s very much not appropriate for a platform like Twitch.
There’s been no word from Forsen on why he was banned again in 2020, nor have we heard from esports org Cloud9. He’s been with the team since 2017 and is also one of the top 100 streamers on Twitch (1.3 million followers). Forsen got his start in Starcraft II and Hearthstone but has abandoned both to stream full time.
Could this be affiliated with the Speaking Out movement, or is it simply something he said or did in the stream to cause him to get banned? We’d prefer not to speculate, but we will keep our eyes on the situation. This isn’t his first offense of the year. In May, Forsen was banned for what was rumored to be quite a few things. It was speculated that he was flaming teammates and more, according to Ginx.
They also reported he was banned in 2016, for what could be called a “lot of offenses adding up,” from a tweet by Forsen himself. No matter the reason, it sounds like it was probably deserved if we look at his controversial personality. We’ll keep our eyes open and let you know what turns up!
