Once Again The Internet is Asking – Why Did Clix Get Banned From Twitch in February 2021?
Fortnite streamer Clix has just received his third ban from Twitch.
Professional Fortnite player Clix has taken to Twitter to announce that Twitch has officially banned him. The ban took place in the early hours of February 15, 2021. Unfortunately for Clix, it may be three strikes and you’re out, as Twitch looks to have permanently banned him this time. The streaming platform had already given Clix temporary suspensions twice before. Clix’s first Twitch ban came in November of 2019 when he was streaming with ‘Zayn‘, another popular streamer who was also banned from the platform. The second ban came in November of 2020 after Clix was part of the mass DMCA ban wave.

Who is Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod?
Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod is a 16-year-old American Twitch Streamer, YouTuber, and professional Fortnite player. The E-Sports star began gaining traction after qualifying for Fortnite’s first annual World Cup in 2019. Clix has now gone on to amass more than 3.5 million followers on Twitch. He is also one of the youngest professional Fortnite players currently competing.
Why Did Clix Get Banned From Twitch in 2021?
Twitch has not officially announced the reasoning behind banning Fortnite superstar, Clix. However, eagle-eyed viewers noticed that during Clix’s most recent livestream, he accidentally displayed a window on his PC showing an explicit picture titled “Rons a**”. The ban hammer was almost immediate, as the livestream was ended there and the VOD deleted. Clix had just competed in the first week of the Fortnite Championship Series for 2021 and had one of his best Twitch streams to date. The Fortnite superstar had peaked at 108,000 viewers during his tournament livestream.
When Will Clix Return To Twitch?
It’s unclear right now if and when Clix will be able to start streaming on Twitch again. However, moments after the ban, RNG CEO Andy Miller claimed he was “on it!”.
We on it!

Even with the CEO of RNG appealing the ban, the process of getting Clix back online could take some time due to it being his third ban on the platform. #FreeClix was also trending at number 1 in the US with over 25,000 fans making their voices heard regarding the ban.
