xQc hilariously explains the philosophy behind teabagging

Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel recently got sentimental about teabagging on stream, and claimed the action didn’t carry the same weight as it used to.

xQc recently returned to playing Overwatch after mostly staying away from the game since being suspended in November, 2018.

Since his return it seems the streamer is trying to turn over a new leaf, he’s even avoided raging in situations he usually would, most of the time at least.

While playing Overwatch recently, xQc got a question from a viewer who asked him what he thought about ‘teabagging’, or the action of crouching directly on your opponents face after they’re knocked out in FPS games.

“I feel like people don’t really teabag for the right reasons anymore,” xQc told viewers. “People are so young and they just started playing online video games, they don’t really understand why you teabag, it’s kind of lost it’s value, it’s meaning, it’s sort of, reasoning.”

Now, the action is mainly used when one player knocks another out, Lengyel said.

“You didn’t do shit,” the streamer told his fans. “If you don’t understand, you’re probably between 10 and 18 years old, maybe 19, that’s why you don’t understand it.”

There was a bit of teabagging controversy in during Season One of the Overwatch League when Jae-hyeok “Carpe” Lee of the Philadelphia Fusion eliminated eliminated Gi-hyeon “Ado” Chon of the Shanghai Dragons during a match and proceeded to crouch repeatedly on top of him.

The controversial action has been a part of online games since the early days, but in 2019, teabagging, at least according to xQc, is simply a hollow shell of what it once represented.

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
