Who Is Indiefoxx And Why Was She Banned From Twitch?

Twitch users will likely know the name Indiefoxx, the woman who's been slammed with six temporary bans by the site this year alone.

Since January, this individual has been banned for 3 days six times by the streaming platform for gamers, with the most recent being 29th June.

Now other big streamers on the platform are accusing Twitch of having double standards with the banning system, because ordinarily a user with 3 strikes will be permanently removed.

The 26-year-old from California has a huge social following, with 187,000 followers on Instagram, 55,500 followers on Twitter and more than 2 million followers on Twitch.

Why was she banned from Twitch?

Indiefoxx has been banned by Twitch in the past for sharing sexually suggestive "NSFW" content on the streaming platform.

On 22nd June, she received a 3-day ban for sharing her ASMR yoga legging streams, which involved her lying in stretching positions while licking a microphone. She was banned to discourage this behaviour, which evidently hasn't worked.

Is she permanently banned now?

As the news of Indiefoxx's latest ban came out, another huge streamer, Félix 'xQc' Lengyel, commented that he thought these bans were a "double-standard".

The streamer had been through situations where he had made mistakes on Twitch that almost led to him being permanently banned from the site, such as showing a man's genitals as he was being arrested by the police.

Indiefoxx's ban will likely be a few days in length, possibly up to a week, as Dexerto has confirmed this is not a permanent ban on her content.

Indiefoxx has not yet commented on her latest ban.
