Apparently, the Samurai Jack clip he watched was from the official Samurai Jack YouTube channel. Willneff said, “Legitimately a clip on their official YouTube. What the fuck is this.” He also said, “It’s a copyright claim. For a clip they put on their own YouTube. I don’t understand at all.”

So Wilneff was banned because of DMCA strike for watching Samurai Jack clips during his Livestream. Hopefully, he will be unbanned soon as his account is still partnered with Twitch.
