Streamer xQc Has Been Banned 72 Hours For Displaying Porn on Twitch

Well, That’s Awkward 

A Twitch streamer has recently received a 72-hour ban from the site for streaming a pornographic video. What a time to be alive. xQc, the guilty streamer at hand is a professional Overwatch player. xQc was kind enough to break the bad news to his fans yesterday via a live stream declaring that Twitch had decided to ban him for three days because of his actions. The video which he steamed was not graphic pornography per se. However, it was a popular YouTube video called “Safe For Work Porn.” This video draws over porn scenes to make the people on-screen appear to be doing something innocent. It was all an attempt at humor. But Twitch was not having any of it.

Twitch’s ban of xQc has caused quite the uproar from his fans and other fans of the streaming service. In January of this year, another streamer Alinity showed a man’s genitals on a stream and received zero kickback from Twitch or anyone else. However, it should be stated that Alinity showed this by accident and closed the window immediately when she realized what was happening. xQc showed this video intentionally. That seems to be what Twitch is upset about.

The ban is only three days so it is not like xQc will be gone forever. But the frustration on his fan’s behalf is understandable.

The guidelines of platforms like YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, and Twitter very widely. Some of these platforms allow explicit pornography on their platforms while others are strictly against nudity of any kind. It is obviously important for users of these sites to be well aware of the parameters that they must follow.

What do you think? Let us know if you agree with the ban or not on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
