PogChamp is undoubtedly one of the most widely used emotes on Twitch. However, the operators were forced to temporarily remove the chat command.
Like the operators of the platform Twitter announced that one wanted to distance oneself with the deletion of the statements of the streamer. The positive thought behind the emote should live on and soon lead to a new version. This should be available to users again later, so Twitch – they want to work together with the community.
We’ve made the decision to remove the PogChamp emote following statements from the face of the emote encouraging further violence after what took place in the Capitol today.

Gootecks, as Gutierrez calls himself on Twitch, also had over Twitter
Will there be civil unrest for the woman who was executed inside the Capitol today or will the #MAGAMartyrdie in vain?
The video will be aired soon on (banned dot video) & (theresistance dot video) and it sounds pretty gruesome 😔

Gutierrez has long been known for his penchant for conspiracy theories around the supposed “New World Order”, the Corona virus and “Big Tech”. Users of the streaming platform requested a revision of the emote earlier. PogChamp is also not the first case in which Twitch bans an emote: There was already a large wave of bans in 2020, in which it hit the controversial emote “Simp”, among other things.
