YouTube Terminates xQc’s Channel: What Happened and What’s Next?
YouTube has taken drastic measures this week by terminating the official channel of popular Canadian streamer xQc, who had over two million subscribers. The likely reason behind this termination is several pending copyright violations that xQc himself has suggested. According to xQc, administrative delays in dealing with copyright claims and counterclaims have led to the auto-termination of his channel.
While having their YouTube channel terminated would cause panic for most YouTubers, xQc seems unfazed, especially when it comes to monetary concerns. During a recent stream, he expressed that “YouTube is for the people” and that he does not care about the money he makes on the platform. Instead, xQc’s main worry is the loss of content for his audience. He hopes that his channel will eventually come back up and alleviate this content loss.
If you’ve been following xQc’s recent career, the removal of his YouTube channel may not come as a surprise. The streamer has been at the center of the react content debate, where he plays another creator’s video, adds minimal personal input, and releases it as a reaction video. Despite the termination, there is a possibility that xQc’s channel could make a swift return to the platform without significant penalties. However, there is also the chance that his YouTube content is lost forever. Only time will tell, and his fans will have to wait for a definitive answer.
