Noah Beck has once again found himself under fire after TikTok users noticed that he was charging an eye-watering amount for duets with fans.

As a member of the infamous content collective Sway House, Noah Beck is one of the biggest names in the influencer world right now.

As well as having 18.6 million TikTok followers, he also has 6.2 million followers on Instagram which, coupled with the fact that he is dating TikTok starlet Dixie D’Amelio, definitely makes him a force to be reckoned with.

However, despite Beck’s burgeoning popularity, fans across social media are questioning his latest money-making choice – namely, the fact that he is charging fans $10,000 to duet with him on TikTok.

Fans were shocked to find that Beck was charging fans 10,000$ for TikTok duets with him,

One Twitter user, who appears to be a disappointed fan, said in a Tweet directed to Beck: “I am not criticizing you, but I think it is a bit unfair that you charge ten thousand dollars for a simple duet to all the people who supported you and believed in you.”

Another Twitter user made reference to Beck’s past controversies, asking: “Who’s paying 10k to make a TikTok with f*****g racist and harasser Noah Beck?”

Over on Instagram, fans were in disbelief in more ways than one. Multiple fans mocked him for “thinking he’s Harry Styles,” with one fan asking: “Who does he think he is?”

Even loyal fans of Beck were unhappy by the prices, with one Instagram user admitting: “I like him but not that much.” Other people pointed out how significant the sum was, with one user saying “that’s some college fees” while another hit out that 10,000$ “is more than my dad makes.”

Others users were incredulous at the idea paying that much for a TikTok in itself. In one Instagram comment that got over 23,000 likes, a user asked: “Who’s paying 10k for a TikTok?”

In a comment that got a lot of support by fans, one TikTok user questioned whether anyone would be willing to pay that much for a TikTok duet.

This is the latest scandal in a fortnight of controversies for Beck. In late October, he came under fire while appearing on Griffin Johnson’s podcast ‘Sway Way,’ with fans slamming him for comments he made about ‘cancel culture’.

During the podcast, Beck said in reference to previous allegations of homophobia: “I’ve done some things in my past where they come off as controversial today, but they weren’t that deep.”

xQc explains why his 7-day Twitch ban was actually a good thing

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel finally returned to streaming after receiving a massive seven-day ban for his role in a Fall Guys Twitch Rivals stream sniping controversy. However, according to the French Canadian, the ban was actually good for him.

xQc’s return to Twitch was met with some huge numbers, with over 100,000 viewers packed into his chat.

With such a massive audience, Lengyel explained how, while he expected to be criticized for his actions, he was shocked at how some folks didn’t want him to improve or get better.

“Seeing people not wanting you to move or not wanting you to go past the hurdles, it’s almost like they’re living through you,” he explained. “There’s a lot of them.”

xQc’s return stream was pulling in huge numbers.

According to the former Overwatch League pro, even after he apologized for his actions, some people were still attacking him for silly reasons.

“‘Oh no, not good enough of an apology, I hope you get perma-banned,’” he paraphrased of his haters. “I hope nobody gets perma-banned and there are people I really dislike in the content creator space, and I wouldn’t want them to get perma-banned.”

His reasoning for this is because he believes people can come back and do better. But he also addressed people claiming that Twitch was using him as an example.

“I don’t think bigger streamers get preferential treatment. And I think that was a good showcase of it,” he added. “I think, out of all the other instances, I think that was a good showcase of me not getting preferential treatment. If anything, I got the full juicer. Seven-day whole thing and I got clapped.”

Twitch has often been accused of giving some larger streamers better treatment than others on the platform, so this was a refreshing revelation from the Laval-born Lengyel.

“Even if, let’s say, I was being used as an example, and they put me out there as an example of doing a bad thing, that’s fine,” he continued. “That’s fine because when we come back, I can also be an example of doing better.”

Hopefully, xQc can make good on this challenge to himself and actually become better, just as suggested.
