It is usually confusing, and Twitch’s own community guidelines aren’t very useful discerning the best answer. Asked for clarification, a Twitch representative told Polygon that this will be the best strategy to understand each time a streamer might face punishment for working with of an offensive or derogatory term: “When reviewing reported content or Fortnite Items activity, we'll consider its intent and context.”
“we are going to consider its intent and context”
The use of your racist or derogatory term falls underneath the hateful conduct and speech portion of Twitch’s community guidelines — a subsection that had been recently updated in order that community members understood Twitch was choosing a more strict stance on hate speech and harassment. The company defines hateful conduct as “any content or activity that promotes, encourages, or facilitates discrimination, denigration, objectification, harassment, or violence based within the following characteristics,” and notes that Fortnite Materials using terminology that falls under any from the characteristics is strictly prohibited.
The first one listed is “race, ethnicity, or national origin.”
The guidelines also state, however, that Twitch’s team will “consider many factors to ascertain the intent and context from a reported hateful conduct” in order that suspensions and bans are properly handled. This allows for several terms to be played with on stream using context without streamers facing a suspension.
