As one of the most popular members of the Sway House, TikToker Bryce Hall is more than used to experiencing a bit of social media scrutiny every now and again.

Hall has recently been sharing his body journey over on Twitter, with him recently posting how much muscle he has gained in the last month. However, with fans mocking him for using ab sculpting treatments to achieve his physique, it looks like he has finally hit back.

When leading celebrity doctor Dr Jennifer Berman uploaded a TikTok revealing that he had been undertaking body contouring sessions with leading body sculpting clinic EmSculpt, many fans reacted negatively.

One TikTok user mocked Hall for “buying abs”, while another was critical of him not “put[ting] the work in” to get a better physique and instead relying on cosmetic treatments. Other users described the video as “embarrassing”, with one commenter quipping: “What abs?”

Unsurprisingly, with several fans tagging him in the replies of these hateful comments, Hall seemed unwilling to take this criticism lying down.

In his own comment on the TikTok, which amassed over 200 likes, he said: “Half the people in the comments talkin’ can’t even lift their own body weight in the gym… shut up, hit the gym, and stay mad [sic]”.

Hall was quick to hit back at fans criticising him, telling them to ‘shut up’ in a TikTok comment.

With Hall’s clapback later being picked up by Instagram page TikTokRoom, it didn’t take long for fans on Instagram to show their support for Hall. In one comment that got over 11,000 likes, one user accused fans of “body shaming” Hall.

Meanwhile, in another comment that got over 10,000 likes, an Instagram user pointed out the irony of fans “talk[ing] bad about these “influencers” and cry[ing] when they clap back”.

Referring to some of his past controversies, another fan claimed that while Bryce was “educating himself and growing”, fans continued to “keep hating on him for literally anything”.

Hall isn’t the only TikTok star to be experiencing a lot of hate recently. When Charli D’Amelio posted a video opening up about her struggles and the stress of being in the spotlight for World Mental Health Day, fans instead focussed on her “D’Amelio privilege”, calling her out for flouting social distancing rules.

xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
