Popular Twitch streamer Chris ‘Sacriel’ Ball found himself in hot water after being called out for impersonating his wife during a recent broadcast.

Entertaining his audience throughout a February 11 Twitch stream, Sacriel was recounting the story of how he first met his wife. Unfortunately, she wasn’t happy with one particular impression that he decided to use when sharing the tale.

Not just any old impression, Sacriel ramped things up by mimicking the sounds of a Murloc from the Warcraft franchise. An often shunned race that makes indecipherable gurgling sounds, Murlocs are arguably the lowest on the food chain in that particular universe and Sacriel’s wife was not at all pleased being compared to one.

Sacriel impersonated his wife with the sounds of a Murloc.

Storming into the room while he was in Escape From Tarkov’s main menu, she acted extremely offended and wanted her partner to repeat the Murloc impression. “I’m sorry? What do I sound like?” She questioned.

“Do you want to do that impression again with me here? It’s like you imagine I can’t see you on the TV in the other room. What do I sound like?”

“Like an angel,” he joked, trying to play off the heated situation. “No no no, let’s hear it again,” she quickly demanded, not sparing any time for his antics. 

“You’ve not played Warcraft but Murlocs are one of the angels, they’re from heaven” he tried to explain, lying about the detestable in-game races. “Not from a swamp or anything right?” She asked, playing along with the joke this time around. “Not just totally mindless, one hit-point creatures right?” 

“Bye,” she said enthusiastically as she took his snacks and left the room to carry on with her day having taken the moral victory in hilariously shaming her partner in front of thousands of viewers. 

Obviously, everything was just fine between the two as there was no real malicious intent with his sarcastic impersonations. 

Following up with a Tweet after he concluded his Twitch stream for the day, Sacriel shared that his loving wife still made dinner for the night despite his earlier shenanigans.

“Even after getting caught on stream impersonating a Murloc and saying that’s how my wife sounds, I still am given a proper English dinner. It only ???????? smells like arsenic,” he joked.

Evidently, all is on good terms between the pair as they love to stir one another up while on-stream. 

Just weeks ago while celebrating his 10,000 subscriber achievement, Sacriel was pranked by his wife thanks to some extra spicy tea

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.
