Internet issues knock out xQc’s stream two days in a row

Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was forced to end yet another broadcast early due to an apparent DDoS attack.

xQc ran into some trouble with DDoS attacks first during his New Year’s Eve stream, after he inadvertently revealed his IP address to viewers during the broadcast.

Just about 30 minutes after revealing his IP, Felix’s stream abruptly came to an end due to what seemed to be a DDoS attack, which overwhelms a target with massive amounts of internet traffic.

On January 14, two weeks after the first incident occurred, xQc was once again forced off his stream by more internet issues – but whether it was actually a “DDoS” attack or not remains unknown.

“Ok chat, my entire internet is f*cked up,” Felix announced, before confirming his phone wasn’t working, either. “Yeah, I know CMD (command prompt) doesn’t work either.”

“Chat I’ll see you in 15-20 minutes, depending on how long it takes to do that,” he assured viewers before his stream went down.

However, that wouldn’t be the end of xQc’s internet issues for the week, as they came up again during a stream the very next day on January 15.

After noticing slow download speeds, Felix apologized to chat for what he considered “wasting their time,” before again being cut off mid-sentence.

“Chat I’m not going to troll you guys, listen, I rarely say it dude, but I value chat’s time a lot,” xQc told viewers. “And I feel like I’m wasting you guys’ time whenever we stall really badly, whenever this sh*t happens, dude. I don’t want to waste everyone’s time with this stupid sh*t, because I would hate if that happened to me.”

Of course, it’s impossible to tell if it was actually a DDoS attack or just something else that happened to xQc’s internet connection, but something suspicious definitely seems to be going on.

Hopefully it’s nothing more than some connection problems, and xQc can get his internet issues ironed out for his viewers and his stream in 2020.

Twitch streamer Jadeyanh terrified after stalker hijacks broadcast

Twitch star Jadeyanh had a terrifying night after a stalker kept harassing her by ordering food and even calling the police to her house.

The Germany-based streamer has quite an audience on the platform boasting over 200,000 followers. Now, it seems like one of them has begun to harass the Twitch personality.

During a November 23 broadcast, the streamer’s door began to ring prompting her to go answer it. While she didn’t take the camera with her, she soon revealed food she never ordered was delivered.

“Okay, I guess you’re watching,” she began, addressing her stalker directly. “I have a stalker and that person keeps ordering food for me. This is now the third time the person did that. Officially, please stop doing that.”

As it turns out, the individual had previously ordered 25 pizzas and had them delivered to Jadeyanh’s house.

“I’m shaking. I haven’t left my apartment in days because I’m terrified of doing my groceries,” she added. “So please, stop doing that. I feel like I’m in a prison.”

The streamer went on to explain that her neighbor, who is also a follower, sometimes opens up her packages without her consent. Now, she has another follower who is harassing her with food.

As she took a sip of her drink, her doorbell started ringing so she got up to answer it, but couldn’t bring herself to open the door because the light outside wasn’t on.

Eventually, right before Jadeyanh ended the stream, firefighters showed up at her door because someone told them there was a gas leak and then the police were coming.

“I don’t know who the f**k you are, but it’s your number you called them with and we’re going to get your f**king ass, you dumbass!” she exclaimed. “What the f**k is wrong with you? 25 pizzas! Twenty f**king five!”

At this point, Jadeyanh was so distressed she decided to end the stream, but soon after on Twitter revealed that since she did, six more deliveries have come for her.

“I was stalked when I was living with my grandparents. I’m being stalked in my new apartment after only 2 months of living here. I just want to rest. I’m so tired of everything,” she said in a follow-up tweet.

Hopefully, the police can get to the bottom of this so the streamer can finally start to feel safe again and not have her broadcasts ruined by stalkers.
