SleightlyMusical and AvocadoPeeled under fire for LilyPichu apologies

OfflineTV members Albert ‘SleightlyMusical’ Chang and Sarah ‘AvocadoPeeled’ Lee have come under fire because of their apologies to Chang’s former girlfriend, Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki, after being caught out having an affair.

Rumors started to unfurl in mid-November that the two had been having an affair, with several other members of the OfflineTV streamer group subtweeting on November 10, 2019.

On the same day, LilyPichu put out a TwitLonger explaining that she is no longer with Chang, apologizing for her friends’ tweets and saying that she still loves and cares about both her friends and her ex-boyfriend very much, with no mention of his infidelity.

It wasn’t until a couple of days later that Chang confirmed he had been unfaithful in a TwitLonger posted on November 12, apologizing for his behavior. This was followed by a post from Lee, confirming she was the other half of the affair.

While an apology from both parties seems fair, it didn’t take long for fans to pick up on something peculiar with their apologies – in that they looked almost identical.

SleightlyMusical’s apology:

“I made the worst decision of my life. I chose to be unfaithful to Lily, and caused her an excruciating amount of pain. I’m incredibly sorry for my selfish and irredeemable behavior. I betrayed her trust and love for me, and for that, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to atone for it. I’ll be taking an indefinite hiatus from content creation to reflect and spend some time alone.

I’m sorry for the people I’ve hurt in all of our communities, I’m sorry for the friends I let down at Offline.TV, and most of all I’m sorry for hurting you, Lily.”

AvocadoPeeled’s apology:

“No one deserves the level of pain I caused, especially not Lily: someone who has only shown me kindness. My choices were immensely selfish, and the levels of betrayal go beyond repair. She does not deserve to suffer like this. Nothing I write could ever be enough, nothing I say could possibly change anything. It will never be enough. There is only reparation in who I choose to be from here on out. I will be taking time away from the public for self-reflection.

I’m sorry for the extreme hurt I’ve caused to everyone in the communities, to those who I could once call ‘friend’, and to Lily most of all. I’m so sorry.”

Although the wording is mostly different, the format and patterns of what they say is incredibly similar, with many fans even conspiring that the two came up with their apologies together.

Starting by directly addressing Lily and how much pain they caused her, both apologies then mention how they betrayed her and that they will be able to “atone” or “repair” the damage caused. Both then mention that they will be taking time away to reflect on what has occurred. The pair use similar words throughout their apologies, with both addressing the “hurt” they’ve caused to people in their “communities.”

In particular, the final paragraphs of each apology are almost word-for-word identical, which definitely brings into dispute the sincerity of the apologies. It’s unlikely anybody involved will choose to address these particular allegations, especially considering the nature of the situation they’re involved in, but it’s unlikely to die down for a while.

Neither Chang, Lee or Ki have spoken publicly since making their statements on the incident, but it’s likely they will come back soon enough with clearer minds and maybe shed some light on the situation if they feel that it’s necessary.

LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
