Twitch streamer, CodeMiko has been banned for violating Twitch’s Terms of Service.
Why was CodeMiko banned?
While no official ban reason has been given by Twitch, the ban is likely due to CodeMiko’s recent Twitch stream entitled, “CODEMIKO MIGHT GET BANNED TODAY” – suggesting CodeMiko knew she was pushing the boundaries of Twitch’s terms of service.
The stream itself consisted of CodeMiko’s virtual avatar streaming while nude (but censored) and homeless. She also had an interaction where viewers could give Miko a big pile of ‘sugar’ and make her vomit.
The stream also consisted of CodeMiko crawling around in garbage, naked, while projectile vomiting on command, eating pigeons and snorting mountains of cocaine.
We’re not making this up.
There have been a lot of controversies around Twitch and its lack of consistency for banning sexual content. But when boundaries are pushed like this, it’s not surprising that Twitch acted fairly quickly with banning CodeMiko.
Miko would respond to the ban with a tweet saying, “Perma???” which means she’s asking if the ban is permanent. Miko knows the ban is temporary so she’s clearly having fun with the situation.

CodeMiko’s Ban History
CodeMiko is a Twitch Partner and this is now her 4th ban. Her previous bans were on:
- September 5, 2020
- September 9, 2020
- January 19, 2021
While Twitch Partners have special exceptions and can generally get away with riskier content, a stream that involves censored nudity and more “degenerate” behaviors are ripe for a ban.
CodeMiko is a notable streamer because the streamer herself is a 3D avatar. Her “operator” controls Miko live on stream giving her real-time animations and reactions. As of now, CodeMiko has not lost her Twitch Partner status.
At least CodeMiko can enjoy the free publicity and paid vacation until she comes back.
