Twitch has suspended two Call of Duty: Warzone streamers after the duo were allegedly caught cheating when playing against Warzone actress Alex Zedra

BeardedBanger and Sarah "Icy Vixen" Belles were reported when Zedra, who also just so happens to portray Operator Mara in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, spotted dodgy gameplay which seemed to intimate her opponents were using aimbots and wallhacks.

Icy Vixen was suspended first, and - after pushing back and boasting that he was about to be offered a Twitch partnership after 12 days on the service - a suspension swiftly followed for BeardedBanger, too.

"Thank you Twitch for banning the most toxic hackers I’ve ever come across in my five years of being on this platform," Zedra tweeted (opens in new tab) earlier today. "Glad I got to witness him being banned live after being called bitch and to 1v1 them as they’re blatantly hacking."
