Streaming can be a noisy job, but for one broadcaster, this fact turned into a full-blown argument with his neighbor after they called security due to his loud gaming session.

Out of all occupations in the online entertainment space, live streaming can be one of the most versatile and explosive, with broadcasters going to insane lengths to entertain their viewers.

With some streamers locking themselves up in cages for a month to even drinking a bottle of wasabi, it comes as little surprise that platforms like Twitch have unintentionally captured some crazy moments — but a February 19 broadcast has taken the proverbial cake.

Twitch has been home to some insane broadcasts in the past, such as streamer “Johnny_Now” locking himself in a cage for 30 days.

Partnered Twitch streamer “LosPollosTV” was in the middle of a video game with his roommate when they heard a loud knock on the door, prompting the duo to investigate their possible visitor.

As it turns out, it was their disgruntled neighbor, who came to vent his grievances about loud noise from the buddies’ broadcasting sessions.

Twitch streamer “LosPollosTV” was interrupted during a broadcast by an angry neighbor.

The altercation turned into a heated argument between the two parties, with the neighbor clearly claiming that they weren’t able to get any sleep due to the noise.

“‘What the f*ck!’ You’re screaming through the wall,” the neighbor explained. “I’m imitating what you’re doing. That’s how loud it is, guys. …dude, my bedroom is right there! For the past two hours you’ve been screaming, ‘What the f*ck!’”

This prompted LosPollos to challenge his neighbor to call security, which seemed to end the altercation. The streamer and his roommate then sat down in front of the camera to explain that the man had allegedly even tried to enter their apartment — a daunting situation, considering they described him as “six foot ten.”

“Dude comes over and is yelling in the doorway like he was gonna come in the apartment,” the streamer explained. “…we’ve been here for over a year. I’ve been streaming for how many days? It’s not like this is a new thing, bro!”

Thankfully, the roommates didn’t have to deal with security for the rest of their evening — but the incident goes to show how some residents aren’t too fond of bawdy streamers living in their complexes.

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.
