TikTok star Chase ‘Lil Huddy’ Hudson is one of the platform’s most popular content creators, boasting over 19 million followers on the site due to his viral videos — but life before social media fame wasn’t always sunshine and roses for the teen.

While Hudson may be a hugely famous online entertainer, the star has received his fair share of backlash online — not only for his unique fashion sense, but also due to his recent split with fellow TikTokker Charli D’Amelio.

However, this wouldn’t be the first time he’s gone through hard times, with the star opening up about his “tragic” childhood in a tearful Instagram Live broadcast on May 16.

Chase “LilHuddy” Hudson opened up to his fans in a tearful Instagram Live broadcast where he detailed some hardships he’d faced as a child.

Hudson began his “birthday inspiration” message by thanking his fans for being there to support him, claiming that his teenage years had been difficult for him while he was growing up.

He went on to explain that he’d suffered a debilitating incident when he was 14 years old, and had felt “hopeless and miserable” before he began his foray on social media, claiming that he’d finally found a community of people who legitimately cared about him in stark contrast to his real-life situation.

“When I was 14, I think, I was going through some really hard times,” he began. “That was like, the start of me losing feeling and emotion, and a lot of heartbreak, since I went through like, something really tragic as a child… and it re-occurred when I was 14.”

Hudson’s emotional live stream saw the TikTok star shed a few tears as he thanked his fans for supporting him and giving him an outlet on social media.

“I felt hopeless and miserable, and that’s when I started social media,” Hudson continued. “When I started social media, I started getting people who cared about me. As a high schooler and as a middle schooler… I had no one. No one really cared about me.”

The star went on to admit that his fans have “helped me through so much,” as well as using social media as an outlet, claiming that if he had no support, “I wouldn’t be here.”

Considering the recent drama surrounding himself and Charli D’Amelio, Hudson made sure to preface his emotional story by clarifying that his comments weren’t about “anyone or anything” — and thus far, fans are showing support for Huddy on all sides in wake of his tearful live stream.

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.
