While the 34-year-old normally stays out of any drama on the platform, Chloe responded to hate comments and said “It’s time for me to address it”, describing the accusations against her as “malicious.”

The hater in question, who was not named or linked to, allegedly posted 62 different slides to their Instagram story accusing Chloe of being a “scammer”, of clickbait and being “fake news”.

Chloe said that she normally ignores these, but that this time the person had been selling their words as an exposé, and “trying to make a profit out of it.” She said “I don’t condone this, and I won’t be a pushover”

One of the repeated accusations against Chloe was that she was encouraging body dysmorphia and an unhealthy lifestyle. The YouTuber took her response one step further by enlisting the help of Dr. Ben Buchanan, a Clinical Psychologist specialist in body dysmorphic disorder in Melbourne who said that Chloe herself was being body-shamed. He praised Chloe for the “kind and compassionate community” she had created.

Dietician Abbey Sharp was also brought in by Chloe to dispel the accusations about her approach to eating. Abbey said, “I really applaud you for promoting a generally balanced approach to food.”

Within hours of posting, Chloe’s fans leaped to her defense in the comment section, with one fan writing “She’s the CUTEST she doesn’t deserve any hate and just the fact that she’s not leaking this person’s name is just so awesome and my respect for her went ??”

Chloe summarised. “I’m a human being and not someone you can just shit on just because you want to grow your following

“Trust me there’s a lot more going behind the scenes… I guess it comes with the number of subscribers that I get and I can handle it.”

Popular Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel lost it after achieving an incredible Minecraft speedrun time. The former Overwatch pro hilariously called out fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors, and challenged him to beat his record.

For many, xQc has become the face of Twitch over the last two years. The former Overwatch pro is one of the most followed channels on the platform, and consistently pulls in 30-40k viewers each time he goes live.

xQc challenges Forsen to beat his Minecraft speedrun time

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular games on Twitch. In 2020, streamers like xQc have been trying to beat the game in record time in front of viewers.

After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.

Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”

According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.
