Drama has erupted between a number of the most popular streamers on Twitch, after Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was caught ‘stream sniping’ his opponents in the Fall Guys Twitch Rivals event. Shroud and Tyler1 say they have lost all respect for their fellow streamer.

During a match from which xQc had already been eliminated, he was found to have grabbed an opposing player who was still competing, so that his teammate could ensure a qualifying spot.

Tyler1 later watched the clip of this happening, in disbelief that xQc had used this tactic. “Wait, he is doing it?!” tyler1 exclaimed, as he watched xQc grab an opponent, resulting in his own elimination from the game.

The match in question was a tie-breaker for third place, and by grabbing and eliminating the opponent, xQc ensured his own teammate could get 3rd instead.

Shroud angry with xQc

After the incident, there was immediate confusion and anger from the other players involved. The tournament had real money on the line, with the winning team securing $11,000 each.

In the end, Team Tanks won Twitch Rivals (check out the final placements here), but xQc’s action gained him the ire of other prominent streamers.

Shroud said he had complimented xQc for being hilarious hours before, “but now he does that, and all my respect is quite literally gone.”

Tyler1 agreed, but only if he had had respect for xQc in the first place. They established that Tfue, who was on xQc’s team, was “in the clear,” but wondered if xQc would face punishment from Twitch.

“No big partner has ever done that,” shroud explained. “I am so shocked, because I don’t know what’s going to happen, I don’t even think Twitch knows. I don’t know if they’re going to ban him for a week, a month, three days? I have no idea.”

xQc has apologized for his actions, and asked fans to stop defending him. “I’m sorry for my actions. I thought it would be funny. It did not change the outcome but it was still malicious. Sorry.”

Tyler1 confronted xQc and Tfue, in what turned into a shouting match between the two rival teams. Tfue took xQc’s side in the debate, but how seriously they were all taking it is unclear.

Whether Twitch does actually take action against xQc is anyone’s guess. Stream sniping is against Twitch rules, and even partnered streamers have been banned for it in the past.

However, given it would be xQc’s first instance, he may get away with a warning. Not to mention, he is one of the most-watched channels on the entire platform, so banning him would cause endless scrutiny and debate over whether it was fair and just.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
