Negreanu banned from Twitch
Daniel Negreanu has been banned from Twitch after a rant on the streaming platform while he was playing the $400 No Limit 8-handed. The ban came as a result of Negreanu using abusive language against a viewer who made a comment about his wife. You can watch the moment when Negreanu went off below (NSFW):

After the incident, Negreanu was unapologetic and even had some fun with the banning saying “So glad I could provide [the trolls] with content to obsess over.” Doug Polk among those trolling, even coming out of poker-video retirement to post a video mocking the incident.
