xQc claps back after hilarious Harry Potter roast donation

Overwatch professional player was playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive during a broadcast on September 12, with a series of hilarious donation messages being read out on screen for him to see. 

While he often leaves the jokes to build up throughout the course of his streams, one message comparing him to a character from J.K. Rowling’s mega-popular wizarding world prompted a strong response from him.

Lengyel was sporting a fresh haircut, which was a little shorter than usual, and it didn’t take long for one viewer to make an easy comparison between him and a member of the Malloy family. 

“Yo, what’s up Draco Malfoy? Nice haircut by the way. Guessing you got tired of Hogwarts and decided to stream for muggles ay. Blimey, you’re bloody awful at this game,” the text-to-speech voice stated, before the donator landed a heavy blow. “You should probably use some magic like Gitticus Goodigus you daft cunt.”

The streamer is no stranger to hilarious donations and trolls appearing in his chat, though, and he’s even previously gone as far as saying that the community he had built on Twitch has made him numb in some ways. 

That never stopped him from firing back with a hilarious shot of his own, though, after quickly responding with: “Alright, well I’ll just go and play quidditch right up your mom’s booty hole man.”

Draco might well have emerged as one of the most villainous characters in the Harry Potter novels, but there’s definitely no similarity in the way these two speak – even if they have the same hair color. Then again, Malfoy never had a Twitch channel, did he?

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
