President Donald Trump’s Twitch account has been suspended, the streaming service said Monday afternoon.

Founded in 2011, Twitch is a platform for live video streaming. The company said, “Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch. In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream.”

One of the streams in question was a rebroadcast of Trump’s infamous kickoff rally, where he said Mexico was sending rapists to the United States.

Twitch also flagged comments at Trump’s recent rally in Tulsa.
