Shanks Twitch Ban Explored
No one knows the real reason behind the ban of Shanks. He was banned nearly 45 days ago, along with his streamer friend Clix.
Clix’s ban was lifted in 2 days, which made the situation even strange. Fans are speculating that the ban is due to the jokes he made on female streamers that sometimes crossed the line.
One of the female streamers even reported his account. But nothing has been confirmed yet regarding the reason behind his ban.

Shanks and his fans are tweeting #freeshanks as a protest against his ban.
Amid the Twitch ban, Shanks has also parted his ways with NRG. This is his second dropping from a team. Last year Shanks dropped from Dignitas Valorant Roaster on being accused of match-fixing.
Mutually agreed to part ways with @NRGgg. I love everyone who is apart of this org and gave me the chance to play. I had fun but this just really was not the right fit for me. Going to be streamin 8 hours a day either watch party or ranked. Still open to play with the right squad
