Gaming streamer Sam “Adept” has received her first Twitch ban after allegedly doxing one of xQc’s moderators.

Adept is a popular name in the gaming community for her Grand Theft Auto streams and ongoing drama with her ex, Félix “xQc” Lengyel. The pair broke up in 2022 for good, and the dust has failed to settle since then. In a drama that can’t seem to resolve, Adept recently accused xQc of paying moderators to sleep with him.

Now the streamer has been banned from Twitch, and while no one knows the exact reason yet, fans have some guesses.

On October 3, StreamerBans reported that Adept had been banned for the first time on Twitch. This news came two days after the streamer read out chats of xQc and his moderators on the live stream.

It’s unknown whether the two events are related, but fans think the streamer got punished for “doxing the mods.”

Why was Adept banned from Twitch?

The community believes the streamer has been banned for leaking “illegally obtained” DMs.

Adept hasn’t yet responded or clarified the reason behind the ban, but one of the streamers, “CoconutB,” mentioned in the leaked DMs, has posted a cryptic video on X.

xQc has also claimed that Adept allegedly took over 700 files from his phone, which included Discord and phone logs.

“You can see super-imposed pictures and it’s all logs. It was like Discord logs and phone logs. Right? And it was like 720 or whatever the f—. It was in the 700s. It was 700!” xQc exclaimed.

Whether the two events are related or not, xQc has clarified that he has no hand in the recent development. The juicer believes that the ban was inevitable and “natural.”

“I didn’t have anything to do with it. Things happened naturally with a logical outcome,” xQc responded to Adept’s ban. “There was a bunch of harassment done. A bunch of f–king… just doxing and just leaking s— for no f—ing reason.”

Currently, Adept’s account is gone from Twitch, but it’s likely a temporary ban, considering it’s her first. For now, fans only have guesses to make sense of her inaugural ban, but it’s best to take them with a grain of salt until Adept reveals the real reason.
