Tokyo Olympics: It is not the first time that xQc got banned on twitch. This is the fourth time that the Canadian twitch streamer got banned since the start of the previous year. Twitch first banned him for three days on March 2020 and it was followed by another single day ban on May 2020. The last ban was seven days long for the streamer which came in the month of November. It is pretty unclear as to how much longer will twitch ban him this time as he violated some of the Copyright Acts.
