When is xQc back on Twitch?

Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel picked up a ban from Twitch after the ‘stream sniping’ fiasco during the Fall Guys event at GlitchCon 2020 Twitch Rivals. With Twitch’s most lucrative streamer temporarily off the platform, when can we expect to see him back?

Being Twitch’s hottest property doesn’t mean you get special treatment. On November 18, xQc was punished for stream sniping by the organizers of Twitch Rivals, with the rules explicitly legislating against “cheating of any kind.”

He was consequently banned for six months from all Twitch Rivals events and had all of his prize money confiscated. Other players, including League streamer Nightblue3, also picked up bans for cheating at the event.

xQc didn’t try to protest his innocence and Tweeted an apology where he explained: “We shouldn’t [have] done it and it was wrong. I’m sorry for my actions. I thought it would be funny.”

When is xQc unbanned from Twitch?

According to a tweet from xQc on November 18, his ban was for seven days. This means the earliest he could be back on our screens is on November 25.

A week-long ban shouldn’t be the end of the world for a streamer of his popularity. Ex-CSGO pro Shroud compared the ban to a “vacation” and expects xQc to bounce back without too many issues.

He said: “Getting banned doesn’t mean anything. Dr Disrespect got banned for a month for streaming in a bathroom. He came back stronger than ever.”

But it doesn’t seem like xQc is particularly enjoying his career being temporarily taken away from him, as he used his newfound free time to offer his take on Pablo Escobar in this legendary Narcos meme. It kind of blew up.

It’s safe to say that, while fans may be missing his streams, xQc will be desperate to get back on Twitch and keep making the content that has made him so popular.

In the meantime, all we can do is take a leaf out of his book: sit and wait…

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Sienna Mae Gomez is a California-based TikTok star who has seen exponential growth in popularity during the late summer/early autumn of this year.

Although she is only sixteen years old, she has already grown a sizeable platform due to her entertaining dance videos and content advocating for body positivity. She currently has 10.7 million followers on TikTok and 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

While some TikTok stars gained their platform over time, Mae’s rise to TikTok stardom was fairly rapid, with TheNetline reporting that she gained 1.5 million TikTok followers in two weeks.

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
