World of Warcraft streamer ‘McconnellRet’ began trolling his Twitch viewers for criticizing him, saying he wouldn’t listen because they hadn’t donated or subscribed to his channel.

The Twitch streamer is just short of 175,000 followers on the platform and is best known for his World of Warcraft streams.

During his March 20 broadcast, however, McconnellRet revealed that he had no interest in what many of his viewers had to say – unless they subscribed or donated to his channel.

While broadcasting his World of Warcraft gameplay, one of the streamer’s viewers suggested that he should play the popular WoW: Classic instead of the game’s Retail edition that he was streaming at the time.

After going back and forth with his viewers on why Retail was much better for his Retribution Paladin playstyle, the streamer seemingly snapped that he doesn’t care about what his viewers want.

“I don’t give a f**k about what my viewers want me to do,” he expressed, seeming fed up with his followers, “my viewers don’t give me any money.”

He continued, suggesting that if his viewers were to subscribe and donate he would be more open to their suggestions and opinions on World of Warcraft.

“Maybe if you guys gave me money I’d care more, give me money and I’ll care, how about that?” McconnellRet added.

When a viewer responded by claiming that Mcconnell already has 2,000 subs, he hit back and said his sub count was down to 1,000, because it was a ‘new month’. He received five gifted subs shortly after too.

Many of the streamer’s viewers were not too happy with his statements, highlighting that donations and subscriptions were optional, and that content on Twitch does not require viewers to spend any money.

However, others in his chat expressed that the streamer was not completely serious and is known for making some outrageous comments while attempting to troll his chat, although many believed it had gone too far.

This is not the first time that a Twitch streamer has hit out at viewers for not spending money on them, as BadBunny also received backlash for her comments about viewership on the platform.

Call of Duty streamer Wings of Redemption also received backlash for threatening to end his stream unless he was making at least $10 per hour in donations.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
