The French-Canadian streamer Felix “xQc” Lengyel received another suspension from the popular streaming platform Twitch. That’s the third one for him.
Felix “xQc” Lengyel is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch and a lot of his fame comes from being such a controversial figure. The streamer has an Overwatch background but even back then he used to cause issues in the professional league. He was banned from Blizzard’s title on multiple occasions due to toxic behavior. In one case the ban lasted for 15 days.

Reportedly he’s been reformed and doing much better now. Despite that Twitch have banned the player multiple times as well. So what did he do this time? Well, why not let xQc explain it himself.
According to the Twitch Community Guidelines, “nudity and explicit content are prohibited” on the platform. By the looks of it, xQc didn’t do it intentionally and his ban will last for only 24 hours. Previously he was banned for three days for basically the same offense. It was extra nudity in an animated game that he didn’t expect. His first ban was the result of a video that included a “Safe for Work” video. This time it’s gorillas. Love him or hate him, there’s something poetic about Lengyel getting banned over the same reason.
All three bans that xQc has received for the past year have been sort of incidental. The streamer himself is usually very concerned about the Twitch TOS. Despite that, he keeps getting in trouble, but thankfully all of his bans are on the shorter side. Felix hasn’t made another statement except the one above, but chances are we’ll get more details when he returns to the platform. If you want to find out more about the life of xQc then look no further as we got you covered.
