Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel flew into a fit of rage when a teammate in his League of Legends match went away from their keyboard. The Overwatch pro then explained why those that ‘AFK’ should be “banned.”

One of the most annoying aspects of playing online games is when a team member suddenly goes ‘Away From Keyboard’ and your entire match is thrown. It’s even more frustrating for team-based titles like CS:GO or DOTA 2.

Twitch star xQc felt this pain during his February 8th broadcast when a player during his competitive League of Legends stream quit playing. The Canadian launched into an explosive rant on why it should be a bannable offense.

xQc erupts over AFK players

The streamer was in the middle of playing League of Legends when he realized that one of his teammates was no longer active. Seething with anger, he then turned towards his chat and aired his frustrations.

“So is he going to come back? Or is he just AFK!? He just went AFK he’s just gone. I’m not kidding, I’ve always advocated for this. If you AFK in a game you should be banned for like a couple of days!” he raged.

The Overwatch pro went further and exclaimed that there is never an excuse for it. “I don’t give a f**k! You should never ever DC a game. It’s absolutely unreasonable to DC from a game. There is no excuse. Zero. Lost power? F**k you! Your fault!”  he yelled.

He then reiterated his point saying “F**k it one day ban!” When challenged by some viewers in chat on his stance, he defended his views, stating, “it’s a competitive game, man. You don’t f**k around, man!. You want to f**k around? Play casuals, b**ch!”

As xQc’s match continued to fall apart due to the absent player, his frustrations began to boil over. “It’s so f**king tilting!” he screamed. “That’s 60 minutes for every team member here. That’s 5 hours combined of lost human time!”

The pro then went off on a viewer in his chat who was arguing with him over being this upset. “That’s why you should be banned for a full day. I don’t give a f**k dude! So f**king annoying!” A poorly timed donation then caused him to snap further. “Dude, shut the f**k up. I don’t give a f**k!”

Regardless of whether you agree with the Canadian personality or not, MOBA’s suffer from players who AFK due to their long play sessions, and not being able to easily quit.

Despite his frustrations, xQc is one of the top streamers on Twitch with over two million followers. He also consistently pulls in thousands of viewers a broadcast, making him one of the most watched channels on the platform.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
