Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris is a massively popular Twitch streamer and internet personality, with over two million followers on the livestreaming platform – but internet fame isn’t everything, as evidenced by the brutal first opinion of actor and comedian Andy Milonakis.

Milonakis, who has even begun his own streaming career on the site, shared his honest first impressions of Sodapoppin in a clip that was used by theScore Esports for a documentary on Morris – where Milonakis admitted that he wasn’t a big fan of Sodapoppin on the outset.

“To me, what I watched of Sodapoppin, he came off as a super pompous, self-important douchebag,” Milonakis said of the streamer.

As fate would have it, Sodapoppin discovered the video and watched it during his own stream on June 30 – sharing a hilarious reaction to Milonakis’ brutal statement.

Morris went open-mouthed after hearing his assessment, as though stunned into humored shock that Milonakis would have held such a negative opinion of him, even pausing the video to process the statement.

“Ouch,” Morris said, going on to give a good-humored laugh at the situation before moving on with the rest of the video.

Milonakis later took to Reddit to explain his statement on the matter, claiming that he had been drunk when the chat asked him about Sodapoppin and even apologized to the streamer.

“I really like Soda,” he admitted. “That clip was from about 2 1/2 years ago when I started to do Twitch full time. I was drunk, and I don’t know if chat was asking me what I thought about certain streamers, or if i was just doing a stupid drunken rant, but either way, it was an asshole move on my part. Sorry Soda popper.”

While Milonakis explained his words as a possible drunken rant, he wouldn’t be the first personality to share such a vehement opinion of Morris: in fact, Morris’ ex-girlfriend and fellow Twitch streamer ‘LegendaryLea’ called him a “fucktard” during a heated spiel toward a curious fan.

“…Are you in my chat asking about that fucktard?” she snapped, after a viewer asked if she was still on good terms with the streamer. “Like, I’m going to be honest, what the fuck is wrong with you?”

LegendaryLea, InstagramWhile clips of her rant against Sodapoppin have since been deleted, LegendaryLea came under fire for calling her ex-boyfriend a “fucktard” during a June stream.

Despite these assessments, Sodapoppin continues to boast a dedicated audience, and has spoken out at length against toxicity on Twitch during his time on the website.

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.
