Thank you for the patience with us on this. This has been one of the most popular ideas on UserVoice and we definitely heard your feedback.
Today we launched /announcement for mods and streamers. Announcements can be used in chat to highlight a message and are available in 4 different colors along with the channel accent color. Because this is only part of the ask of this idea we are setting this idea to partial release so the community can continue to leave feedback on this.

Instead of getting rid of the colored text for the /me command in chat, just make a toggle on the creator dashboard so the streamer can turn the feature on or off, or even have a setting for both options so the streamer can decide if they want the original /me colored text command or if they want the new slanted text one.
I have never seen the original colored text design be an issue before and removing that is basically going to kill the command completely, the whole point of it is to make your message stand out from the rest of chat which is what the colored text does, without it the message looks like everything else, especially in a fast moving chat.
