Now Lea May, who goes by LegendaryLea online, has been banned from video-sharing site Twitch amid a number of complaints. The accidental exposure occurred when Lea was streaming footage of herself playing the video game Dark Souls and went to grab something off-screen.
Lifting her leg, which she claims is injured, Lea appears to reveal herself for a few moments, followed by a flurry of comments from viewers. But Lea, who’s based in the American city of San Diego, California, has denied exposing her genitals, insisting it was just her thigh. Setting the record straight on Twitter, she wrote: “For the record Thighs [do not] equal vag.“Sorry I had to stand in an awkward way due to my ankle injury. Boy shorts were underneath.”
She aded: “I have an injured ankle and lost my balance standing. My revealing leg lift was to catch myself from falling.But that didn’t stop her getting banned from Twitch, apparently for 30 days, due to “terms of service violations”.Viewers took to Twitter to request a ban after the incident, tweeting the site and describing what happened.
One wrote: “I understand it’s a business and all, so the flirty and flashy stuff is whatever, but Lea has gone too far.”Another said: “We want answers. 30 days ban? Come on now her stream is not even game related anymore. Well wasn’t ever.”But some came to her defence, emphasising that any exposure was accidental and calling for the ban to be lifted.
One viewer asked: “A streamer accidentally shows some thigh on cam and Twitch gives a 30 day ban? That’s her job and it was an accident.”While another told Lea: “I’ve written to Twitch via their website to appeal against your unjustified ban. I hope others do too.” Lea says she’ll continue her broadcasts via streaming app Periscope and her YouTube channel.
