Twitch streamer Sodapoppin slams Reddit and Twitter for promoting “losers and incels”

Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris went on a huge rant on social media sites like Reddit and Twitter for popularizing comments regardless if they’re coming from “losers.”

The variety streamer was referring to sites that use a voting system that moves the most voted comment to the top of the thread, but Soda thinks the system can encourage misguided opinions to be normalized.

Sodapoppin resisted going on a spiel as the streamer ripped into the sort of people that he believes tend to be featured on some of these social pages.

Sodapoppin is known by his fans to share harsh critiques and uncensored opinions.

After his Twitch Chat had suggested Reddit as being a culprit for that kind of system, Soda clarified that the system and its problems were bigger than that.

“Any type of messaging system where like there’s a comment that gets voted to the top, is a terrible fucking system and literally just the worst,” Sodapoppin said. “… Even Twitter is like that, such a fucking terrible system. Cause usually the only people that take time to comment are actual losers, at least the majority, in most situations. ”

Soda’s opinions on the social sites also hit on the dangers that they can have in regards to the spread of misinformation to people who can get easily swayed by the top comments.

“So you have a bunch of people reading these comments and they’re all a bunch of losers upvoting each other, ‘I agree with this incel statement because I’m also an incel. let me upvote it…’ Then you have normal people go and read it, and they’re like ‘Oh, so this is how normal people feel about this situation’ and then they’re influenced by what they don’t realize are losers,” Sodapoppin said.

Sodapoppin isn’t too keen with how these popular social media sites can let the wrong kind of information be encouraged and easily circulated.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
