During his May 17 stream, Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel revealed how a banned Twitch viewer went to great lengths to prove him wrong. The former Overwatch pro explained to his viewers why he was mortified by their behavior.

A major component to streaming is the personality’s ability to entertain their viewers. Unfortunately, due to the live nature of the format, this also leaves them open to trolls who want to grief them and ruin their day.

During his latest broadcast, xQc opened up to his audience about a viewer he had to keep banning over and over again. However, things took a dark turn when the user sent the Twitch star a disgusting message.

The streamer was in the middle of a broadcast when he opened up to his chat about a disturbing story involving a viewer he had banned. “I had this one guy who kept making new accounts over and over. And he would still watch the stream. I would beg him all the time,” he began.

xQc then explained how the troll always knew what to say to set him off. “He would always say the one thing that would like trigger. And then at some point I said “Yo, dude I’ll just ban you again. Stop making accounts you f**king v*rgin c**k lord!” However, the viewer then private messaged him.

“He sends me a DM and says “I’m not a v*rgin and here’s proof!” … He sends me a picture of actually him [with] some girl. It was a real picture of a selfie while he’s [with her] and he’s like “Yo dude, I’m not a v*rgin!” … I was like what the f**k, who does this!?”

Disgusted by the viewer’s actions, xQc claimed he then tried to confront the user in Discord. According to the streamer, the user just said “some stupid s**t,” before adding, “I don’t think he watches anymore.”

The streamer detailed the encounter as “just weird” and seem baffled by the lengths the user went to harass him. Although thankfully, it seems that the troll has moved on after his many attempts to bother the Canadian.

If nothing else, the disturbing tale is a remind of the kinds of things steamers have to deal with behind the scenes. Banned users aside, xQc continues to crush it on Twitch. At the time of writing, he’s amassed over 3 million followers to his channel.

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
