Apparently, Rusev was banned from Twitch because Lana appeared in a bikini.

I think Twitch felt they had to do something about some female streamers just using sex appeal as a way to increase viewers as they didn’t want it to be that sort of platform and also because it made things difficult for regular female streamers who didn’t want to go down that road.

Don’t know if this was a case of “wear a bikini it’ll get more views” or if it was just that she just happened to be in a bikini.

Lana and Rusev are known to like being scantily clad.
