Saqib “Lirik” Zahid has become the latest high-profile personality to receive a suspension from the Twitch live-streaming platform.

On Monday, September 10, Lirik took to Twitter to reveal that he had been suspended from Twitch for ‘alleged copyright infringement.’

The copyright claim stems from UEFA (Union of European Football Associations), which is the governing body of the sport in the region.

It should be noted that Lirik seemed confused by the decision to be suspended, especially due to the fact that he was streaming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 ‘Blackout’ at the time.


Fellow streamers and content creators expressed their support for LIRIK via Twitter.
