Twitch Remove PogChamp Emote From Platform

Twitch have announced they have made the decision to remove the popular “PogChamp” emote from the platform effective immediately. The company said they made this decision following statements made by the person who is based off today which involved the events that took place at the capital building in Washington D.C.

Gootecks posted the following today:

Twitch stated:

We’ve made the decision to remove the PogChamp emote following statements from the face of the emote encouraging further violence after what took place in the Capitol today.

We want the sentiment and use of Pog to live on – its meaning is much bigger than the person depicted or image itself– and it has a big place in Twitch culture. However, we can’t in good conscience continue to enable use of the image.

We will work with the community to design a new emote for the most hype moments on Twitch.
