During a recent broadcast popular Twitch personality Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel criticized  “baiting” streamers who then turned around and talked smack on their own viewers.

While playing Slither.io and chatting with viewers, one fan sent xQc a text to speech poking fun at Twitch users who watched and donated money to female streamers.

“Hey xQc I’m a 19-month, tier 3 sub for Pokimane and she called me a sweetheart the other day,” the TTS said. “Do you think I have a chance?”

This prompted a rant from xQc, not specifically about Pokimane but what he called female streamers who use ‘baiting’ for views.

“Can I be honest, dude? Guys, I’ll be honest, okay? I don’t mind all of the ‘baiting’ streamers,” Felix told his chat. “I don’t mind that dude, do what you gotta do to get the juice, whatever man. They don’t affect me, I don’t affect them, live your life.”

What the French Canadian does have a problem with though, are those streamers turning around and talking smack about the very viewers who support them.

“Whenever they decide to do collabs with other streamers, I’ve seen this like four times now, and they make fun of ‘simp’ donors,” xQc said. “Like, come on, man.”

“Your entire job is to farm them, and now you’re going to trash them and make fun of them?” he asked. “Come on, man, that’s such a Hypocrite Andy.”

The former Overwatch League star also dismissed the idea that those streamers were making fun of fans as a joke or in “in good fun.”

“And no-one give me this ‘they’re just being self-aware, it’s a good joke and it’s good fun,’ no dude,” xQc continued. “It’s literally not. It’s them trying to have it both ways, it’s just such a weird thing.”

xQc has one of the largest and most loyal followings on Twitch, so he would know more than most people about building and keeping a fan base around, even if he isn’t known for his ‘baiting’ techniques.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
