On January 6th, Capitol Hill has been breached by protesters and it caused injuries, detentions, and even deaths. Twitch has removed the ‘Pogchamp’ emote because the person in the emoji has promoted violence in the Capitol Hill protests.
Ryan ‘Gootecks’ Gutierrez tweeted about the protests and he supported a continuation of protests which will lead to more violence and consequences.

Twitch also stated that they are working on a new emote for the community to express themselves for most hype moments, but nothing is clear as of now.
