Days after she was found to have faked an egg attack on herself while livestreaming on the island, Singapore Twitch streamer KiaraaKitty has now been banned from entering Taiwan.

According to Taiwan’s Central News Agency, the island's immigration department issued a press release on 27 February, stating that KiaraaKitty, whose real name is Cheng Wing Yee, would be banned from entering Taiwan. Though the exact duration of the ban is yet to be announced, the maximum penalty is a five-year ban.

Cheng made the news after a person in a red dress and black slippers was seen throwing eggs at her while she was livestreaming from the city of Kaohsiung on 9 February.

The person was heard shouting at Cheng for allegedly seducing her husband and warned her to stay away from him. Cheng was captured replying that she did not know who the person’s husband was.

After the person departed, Cheng told her viewers that the attack was a result of her being on OnlyFans, a platform known for its adult content.

Investigations revealed that the attack was staged by Cheng and her assistant

The next day, she told Taiwanese reporters that she had reported the incident to police, and she knew the culprit. However, Focus Taiwan reported that the Kaohsiung police denied receiving any such report.

Further investigations by the police then unveiled that the person who threw eggs at Cheng was her 32-year-old male assistant.

The pair later confessed that the entire incident was staged and the male assistant had deliberately disguised himself as a woman to help Cheng gain attention and more viewers.

They were also deemed to have violated Taiwan’s Social Order Maintenance Act as they had spread rumours and disturbed public peace.

Cheng was instructed by the police to make a public apology for her actions on social media. She held a livestream on 24 February where she said that she had just wanted to prank her audience and did not realise that what she had done was against the law.

She also declared that she would never do something similar again.

The entry ban to Taiwan was issued to both Cheng and her male assistant, and the pair are reported to have left the island already.

Her antics echoed a similar stunt pulled by a Taiwanese influencer, who faked a kidnapping in Cambodia on his Instagram live feed.

In that incident, Chen Neng-chuan and his friend Lu Tsu-hsien did not get off with just an entry ban and an apology. The duo were arrested in their hotel rooms and sentenced to two years jail by Cambodia authorities in February, and also slapped with a fine.
