Eric ‘Airrack’ Decker has been growing at a ludicrous rate throughout 2020, but has hit a little setback thanks to a legal threat made against him for his content.

Airrack’s subscriber count has skyrocketed since the end of 2019, taking him from just a couple thousand subscribers to over 100,000 before April had even hit.

His style of content seems perfect for YouTube, with a blend of inspiration from the likes of David Dobrik and Logan Paul clearly scattered throughout each video – but that appears to have landed him in some seriously hot water.

Airrack has filmed videos with the likes of Logan Paul and David Dobrik.

In a video posted on April 4, Airrack said: “If you’ve been following my channel for any period of time, what probably brought a lot of you guys to this channel was a certain video where I snuck into a certain event that may or may not have been a residential property.”

Though Airrack clearly can’t name anyone, he tried to give viewers as much detail as possible in what went down. He continued: “The person who owned the property did not like the video. It was a fun video. However, when you play on the line like a lot of my content does, this is what happens.”

He explains that he was asked by the individual’s legal representatives and essentially asked to remove the video from anywhere it was hosted, including the original YouTube upload. While he originally fought against it, he says he finally got a letter that said if he doesn’t delete the video, the individual will press charges and request reimbursement.

Airrack suggests that the requested reimbursement was in the “six figures,” (at least $100,000) so you can comprehend why he opted to delete the video eventually, though he says it was a matter of pride when it came to deleting his content.

Later in the video, he even shows footage of the phone call he had with the Los Angeles Police Department, who didn’t seem too put out by the contents of the video and actually thanked him for being more responsive than the individual involved.

Though we don’t know the person who attempted to sue Airrack for one of his videos, there was clearly a strong case to be made on either side – and the YouTuber might have got lucky this time.

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s impromptu purchase of a $1,200 shirt resulted in some trolls by his chat, prompting his roommate Adept to step in.

During an October 18 broadcast, the French Canadian was looking at shirts and had his eyes set on a Versace jungle print retailing for over $1,000 Canadian.

After being egged on by chat, the streamer bought the shirt and proceeded to show it to Adept.

“They made me buy something,” the former Overwatch pro laughed.

“Versace, Felix?! I thought it was just an Amazon shirt or something!” she exclaimed in response.

After a bit of a back and forth about the shirt’s insane price tag, Adapt seemed more annoyed at the fact that xQc didn’t buy one for her as well.

“You like it, though?” he asked.

“Yeah, I think it’s cool,” she agreed and went on to suggest the streamer buy some jewelry to go with it.

While Adept seemed in favor of the expensive shirt, his chat had some issues with it, believing that Felix had “changed” as a result.

“Sammy, listen. Chat is going to say ‘I changed’ now and whatnot,” xQc explained, prompting Adept to fire back with a brutal roast towards both xQc and some members of his chat.

“Yeah, he changed his f**king shirt for the first time in three years,” she remarked, taking a jab at the popular Twitch star before turning her attention to his viewers. “Shut up, b**ch! Stop talking about it.”

The clip of the burn quickly started to spread like wildfire, amassing over 50,000 views in under a day.

It just goes to show that Adept isn’t afraid to mince words to defend xQc even it means taking a jab at him to put his viewers on blast.
