According to Mothership, the Taiwanese authorities declared the ban on Tuesday, accusing the streamer of arranging for her male assistant, who was dressed as a woman, to throw eggs at her during a live broadcast.

The staged event was aired directly on her channel as she roamed the streets of Kaohsiung on Feb. 9.

Attributing the alleged attack to the nature of her OnlyFans content, Kiaraakitty informed Taiwanese journalists on Feb. 10 that she had reported the incident to the local authorities.

However, Kaohsiung police clarified the following day that no such report had been filed and urged her to issue an apology for tarnishing the reputation of the city, as reported by Channel News Asia.

In a livestream on Feb. 24, she confessed that the video was a stunt, apologizing for her conduct and stating her intention was merely "to be funny."

Nonetheless, the Taiwanese press criticized her for fabricating the event to draw public attention.

The exact departure date of Kiaraakitty and her assistant from Taiwan remains uncertain, though her channel content hinted she might still have been in Taiwan as of Feb. 25.

Kiaraakitty has amassed more than 530,000 followers on live streaming service Twitch and over 234,000 on Instagram.
