Popular social media star Kai Cenat has been banned from Twitch once again, prompting his followers to float the #FreeKai trend on Twitter again. The 19-year-old streamer known for his meme-based comedic sketches was inexplicably banned from Twitch barely two weeks ago on April 12, 2021. 

It now appears that he has been banned again for using hateful slurs that violate the code of conduct for the streaming service. However, Kai and his legion of fans are believing that there is more to the incident than meets the eye, as they accuse Twitch of racial discrimination for 'harassing' him. "BANNED FROM TWITCH AGAIN...AT THIS POINT IM LITERALLY GETTING HARASSED...GET THIS TRENDING #FREEKAI," Kai tweeted after getting banned from Twitch for the second time in a month.

Why is #FreeKai trending again?

Kai first began posting on Instagram in 2017. In a short amount of time, he gained a huge fan following as he expanded to other platforms. He has two YouTube channels, including one called 'Kai Reacts'. He also acts as a part-model with several photos available on his Instagram page. On May 14, 2020, YouTube awarded him with a silver Creator Award for crossing 100,000 subscribers.

Earlier in April, Kai suddenly went offline on Twitch in the middle of a live stream as the message 'channel suspended' was displayed to his followers. At that time, he was unsure why exactly he got banned.

This time, Kai posted a screenshot from Twitch that stated that he has violated the hateful speech guidelines and hence his account has been banned. However, Kai has not specified if he had actually used any racial or hateful slur or not. 

With the demand to revoke the ban on Kai's account, #FreeKai soon started trending on Twitter. 

"#freekai AGAIN ?? THE F**K DID HE DO I stg this is GOD DAMMIT TWITCH JUST DO BETTER PLEASE," an angry fan tweeted.

"Okay kai obviously getting spam reported like I did, and until they put a flag on his account, he will keep getting banned every time," another presumed.
