Twitch star Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was not happy with art streamers complaining about ‘unfair’ bans and took aim at them during his September 18 broadcast.


xQc is arguably one of Twitch’s biggest personalities, and is no stranger to going off on colorful rants about a whole array of different topics when he gets heated.

The Overwatch pro’s latest blast takes shots at art streamers ‘Saejin’ and ‘Sareui’ who were both banned from the platform for the sexual content of their drawings.


xQc blasts lewd art streamers

During his September 18 Just Chatting broadcast, the 23-year-old streamer took a swing at the artists, and wondered why they were surprised at their bans.

“No shit, dude! They say “Oh, I only drew 2D titties! There’s 3D on Just Chatting!” … No, no!” the Twitch star said, before he got up and demonstrated a pose from one of the drawings. 

The Canadian then detailed the lewdness of some of the art, and stated that he was disgusted by the content. “How about we don’t draw, dude… There’s actual watery, open, fucking pussy mounds in those fucking… And those drawings… No shit!”

He ended by bashing the sexual poses detailed in the art, and said: “Dude! They draw the fucking backwards, like, entire pussies with like water on the sides. Like, dude, NO SHIT you’re gonna get banned! What the fuck?”


Why were the art streamers banned?

“Pin-up” illustrator Sareui was the first artist to spark the controversy on September 15, after she read out an email from Twitch warning her about the sexual nature of her content. 

She called the platform out for its ‘double standards’ regarding other creators on the platform and was later banned for three days on September 17.


A second artist named ‘Saejin’ was banned for three days on September 18 for their lewd drawings, and shared on Twitter how Twitch staff were “nice enough” to let them back up their VODs to “prepare” for the suspension.


The streaming service’s Community Guidelines state that it “restricts content that involves nudity or is sexual in nature” and that it is “committed to ensuring that Twitch is not used for sexual exploitation or violence”. 

It then goes on to state that it understands that content, such as art streams, may be used for educational purposes but will still restrict in some cases “due to the diversity in age and cultural backgrounds of our global community.”
