A day after getting banned on Twitch for a week, popular streamer Felix "xQc" Lengyel shared a hilarious meme of himself, based on the popular Narcos meme template.
xQc was recently banned for stream sniping during the Fall Guys Twitch Rivals tournament and will now have to wait an entire week before he can start streaming again.
After apologizing for his actions, he decided to take a hilarious jab at his life without streaming, by paying homage to the popular "Pablo Escobar waiting" meme:
xQc's tweet features pictures of him in poses like that of Wagner Moura, who plays Pablo Escobar in the critically acclaimed television series Narcos. The "waiting" meme has become an iconic image over the past few years.
