TikTok star Bryce Hall has issued a response after old videos of him on a 2017 YouNow stream resurfaced.

Bryce Hall has blown up in popularity in 2020, with over ten million followers across his TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube accounts.

However, the internet star’s first venture into social media fame was on streaming service YouNow, which would allow him to chat with viewers and engage with other creators on the platform.

A clip from one of his old YouNow streams from 2017 recently resurfaced, where Bryce was in a heated debate with a girl who he had hosted on his channel, criticizing her on stream and calling her a “wh**e”.

The popular influencer received backlash for the old video, and has now spoken out in response to the clip on May 16.

“People are really bringing back my old videos from when I was 16-17 and judging me based on that?” he asked, before explaining that people can change over time.

He continued on by claiming that while he agrees he deserves to be criticized over the incident, it is unfair for people to bring back the clip to use it against him years after it has happened.

“I’m not saying I don’t deserve criticism for it [because] I did act as a little disrespectful prick in the past,” he admitted,” but randomly bringing it back and just now hating on me for it after I apologized sincerely on it multiple times.”

The girl who originally posted the old video then deleted it, and spoke out in two more TikTok videos. “That’s a decision he chose to make and he chose to act that way for an audience which I think is uncalled for and that’s why I posted it,” she said. “I know that people can change and it was a long time ago. However my personal opinions are mine.”

This is not the only drama that the TikTok star has found himself in, as his back and forth with fellow content creator Ricegum seems to be continuing after Bryce revealed he would be releasing another video on the feud.

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.
