Suspensions and surprise bans are nothing new for Twitch, but when the popular streamers come under the radar, it becomes a matter of concern. From the past few months, many ridiculous actions like the continuous use of the word ‘simp’ and streaming ‘unmoderated content’ have led to a growing number of banned Twitch streamers.

5 Famous Twitch Steamers Who Got Banned In 2021! #3 Deserved More Than Ban For His Sins!
Whether you talk about gaming streams or music streams, you will find anything and everything on Twitch’s constantly growing platform. Due to its versatile features like supporting streamers by Twitch donations, more and more people are joining the community every day. However, due to a constant demand for engaging and creative content, more people are rapidly entering the list of banned Twitch streamers. Let’s explore who all are these-
Sometimes it feels like Twitch is holding personal grudges against popular streamer CodeMiko because of her untimely bans. Till now, the streamer’s account has been banned more than thrice on Twitch without any reason. Even if there was a reason for her ban or suspension, Twitch has failed to reveal it to the fans, which led to the platform receiving massive criticism from Codemiko’s die-hard fans. (Expected!🤷🏻♀️)
2# Disguised Toast
Recently, Jeremy Wang, aka Disguised Toast, has become a popular name of online and offline gaming communities due to his Hearthstone content. Disguised Toast was banned during the summer of 2021 during one of his live streams for streaming unmoderated content. Jeremy Wang streamed a short PUBG clip where the gamer was seen using a homophobic slur during the stream. Due to this, the streamer was banned for a few days.
3# Mini Ladd
Mini Ladd is the only streamer on this list whose ban hasn’t affected fans in any way. In February 2021, two underage fans accused Mini Ladd of demanding explicit images. Due to the nature of the assault, streaming platform Twitch went through a lengthy investigation which ultimately ended in Ladd’s permanent suspension and removal of partner status. Since Mini Ladd isn’t a partner anymore, he hasn’t many chances of getting back on the platform. (Ouch!🤯)
eSports professional Ibai Llanos has faced a fair share of controversies ever since he made an appearance on the popular platform. The football enthusiast may have interacted with famous faces like Lionel Messi, Sergio Kun Aguero, and Andres Iniesta, but those meetings didn’t stop the three Twitch bans. All three times, Ibai was banned due to the streaming of explicit content on his channel.
By far, 2021 has been the worst to famous Twitch steamer Felix Lengyel, popularly known as xQc. The popular streamer was banned twice this year, with DMCA-related issues being the reason both times. Though the platform hasn’t openly admitted to DMCA being the reason but Twitch expert Streamerbans were quick enough to decipher the theory. The first time xQc was banned was in July, a day after broadcasting the Tokyo Olympics event, while the other suspension took place in August.
