I got onto Crunchyroll through my phone on the app and when I was about to watch some anime it says I was forbidden from accessing the app. I tried going online to figure out the problem so I went to crunchyroll.com on my phone and I was given an access denied. it says my IP was banned by the website owner, I don't know if I was banned or something but im trying to find out why I was banned or the problem

You might be connecting via an IP associated with spam or malicious activity (not necessarily yours personally, but others), which has therefore been banned. By any chance are you using a VPN?

Yes. While using a VPN for the purpose of circumventing region restrictions is against ToS, that's not why they get banned -- IP addresses provided via a VPN get banned if CR sees a lot of traffic coming through from spammers or other bad-doers. VPNs are often used by such users. So, you should find yourself a more reputable provider.
