During her own IRL stream on 23 June Amouranth was successfully streaming from the shop despite being questioned by a staff member. She simply lied to the staff worker in order to prolong her stream by suggesting she was “video chatting” and continued to browse the store’s stock.
According to Twitch’s community guidelines, it is prohibited to share content on private property, without permission, meaning IRL streamers have to be extremely careful when livestreaming in stores.
“Are you videotaping in here?” asked the store worker, to which Amouranth responded: “We’re just video chatting, is that not okay?” The streamer was then given the all clear to carry on.
Amouranth had earlier been banned for filming without permission in a public place after serving a 12-hour suspension for streaming in a gym last year, where she was caught impersonating Shia LaBeouf’s famous "just do it" meme behind an unaware stranger.
However, it is unknown whether she will face another ban as a result of her failure to disclose that she was streaming. Many users suggested that Twitch might be unfair with regard to carrying out IRL bans.
"Lying about streaming is directly prohibited in the ToS, but just like last time she straight up lied, nothing will happen", said one of the commentators.

Definitely seems like some unfair things going on with Twitch regarding bans from one person to the next. Totally uncalled for in a gym.— TheDetailer (@TDetailer) 24 июня 2019 г.

Earlier during the E3 game conference, streamer Dr Disrespect was banned for breaking the community guidelines because he was streaming from a public bathroom, breaking the clause that forbids the creation or uploading of content that's "invasive of privacy or publicity rights".
