YouTuber Ryan Kinel reports that TeePublic has shut down his store and deleted his account.
Kinel shared a screenshot of an email from TeePublic to Twitter.
It reads, “This is to notify you that, as a result of a violation of our terms and conditions, we have removed or disabled access to material that appeared at www.teepublic.com/user/RK Outpost and have deleted your account.”
The email continues, “Please note that our removal of the aforementioned material and our deleting your account may result in the interruption or cancellation of previous processed orders involving your submissions to TeePublic.”
“If you believe that your work has been removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, you are welcome to contact us and we will consider the matter. However, nothing herin shall be construed as an agreement or course of dealing by us to in the future take any action or refrain from taking any action, and TeePublic reserves all rights.”
In the tweet Kinel referenced fellow YouTuber Drunk3PO’s Teespring and TeePublic accounts getting shutting down.
He wrote,” So after flagging his Teespring and Teepublic, these sorry ass freaks are going after my shit too. It was literally just my logo. F*** these cancel culture losers.”
Kinel’s Teespring store is still currently up.
Drunk3PO reported earlier this month that Teespring had shut down his entire store featuring “Welcome to the Rebellion” merchandise.
He wrote on Twitter, “For those wanting a ‘Welcome to the Rebellion’ shirt, it appears the store was flagged again and this time they got the entire store taken down. I’ve sent a message to Teespring but have yet to hear from them.”
Drunk3PO would eventually share a response from Teespring.
It reads, “Spring strives to create the best community possible for our fans and creators. If we see that your account has violated any of our policies multiple times, we reserve the right to disable your entire account at our own discretion.”
They added, “Please note that we will terminate any accounts that are connected to previously disabled accounts.”
Drunk3PO reacted to this writing on Twitter, “I never got a notice of any violations except for Drunk3po logo shirts, which were taken down a while ago and not put back up.”
He would eventually set up a TeePublic account.
Drunk3PO shared to Twitter, “Well, look what we have here. Better get it quick before they take this one down. But, because of all this something amazing is on the horizon.”
The store would in fact be taken down. Drunk3PO reported, “Well, they got the second store taken down. Hope everyone got a shirt that wanted one. Damn.”
What do you make of TeePublic shutting down Ryan Kinel’s store?
