taken off Twitch over the weekend for showing off too great of a character in a Connect Four clone, in which they took off their bra and showed the female solely in the buff.
Although the streamer tried to appeal the ban on February 29, he was unsuccessful, with the suspension being upheld for the chubby three days. Instead, he issued an apology to his fans, and updated them with when he’ll be back online.

“I wanted to update everybody yesterday but it certainly was unclear and I wanted to appeal and have a chance to explain myself,” the streamer said on Twitter on March 1.
He also owned up to his mistakes, and seemed to clean up his act once he returns in a few days.

“I did, but it certainly didn’t matter. We’re tanking your total thing. Things are a tiny utterly different than I anticipated but ultimately it was my fault. We’ll roll when we get back.”

xQc also attached a statement he got from Twitch clarifying the reasons for his ban. Whereas it was suspected to be over a nude scene on stream during a game, the statement from the Amazon-owned platform clarified all doubt.
“Your account was suspended for broadcasting whine that specializes in nudity and/or sexually insist whine in Strip 4: Classmate Gape,” said Twitch in an email to the streamer. “Right here is rarely any longer approved on our companies and products per our Personnel Guidelines.”

The platform’s guidelines state all kinds of “sexually insist whine are prohibited” on the platform, from streamer’s attire to the games they play.
Twitch’s guidelines make particular mention of adult-themed whine.
No longer easiest was the ban upheld, but so was the strike against his account, making it xQc’s 2nd offence on the platform. He was banned back in July 2019 after showing adult-themed movies on his channel, which showed actors performing extra ‘safe for work’ tasks than their original clips.
With a three-strikes coverage in place on Twitch, the partnered streamer will have to be careful with the principles in the future to avoid being deplatformed fully.
xQc will return to Twitch on March 3, three calendar days after his suspension.
