Overwatch pro boasts more than 1.5 million followers on Twitch, and regularly receives donations for his funny on-stream antics and interesting gameplay.

Not everyone, as it turns out, is happy to hear their money is being spent on the wild personality known for his over-the-top reactions, with one fan’s parent reaching out to xQc via email to request a refund for their child’s multiple donations.

After receiving the email, Felix blew up, putting on a mocking voice and aiming his rant at parents of his followers and demanding they teach their children about donations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“One of you had your parents send me an email saying “Oh my god, my kid donated to your stream and it wasn’t me, he donated several times, $3, and I don’t know who you are but I want my money back,” the streamer yelled.

“No, no, no, no,” he continued, slamming his desk. “That was a ‘no’, okay? It was like $27 total, 27 bucks. I don’t care that much, I don’t care about $27. I care, but not really.”

“No, you’re not getting the money back, it’s not happening. You should not let children go into the stream. You should educate your child. It is not my job to educate your child about being retarded.”

The disgruntled streaming star, who had been playing Counter-Strike before his rant, revealed to his streamers after they called him harsh that it was the way the donator’s mom approached him that riled him up.

“You should have seen the audacity of it, it’s like I scammed her,” he explained.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I toned down the message when I told you guys. The wording was disgusting, like I was a criminal. Like I did something wrong. I’m like dude, are you kidding? The way she wrote it? Fuck you, man. Parent your piece of shit toddler you disgusting hag.”

xQc’s response to the email may have been a little bit over the top, but considering Twitch streamers make their livelihood out of donations and subscriptions, and the donator’s parent was treating it like a scam he may have felt like it was a personal attack.

The requested $27 isn’t that much in the overall scheme of things for the Overwatch star, but it was enough for him to send a message, which he well and truly delivered.

Jake Paul claims Disney didn’t fire him after Bizaardvark controversy

Jake Paul has dismissed new claims he was fired by Disney back in 2017 during his stint on sitcom Bizaardvark, addressing the three-and-a-half-year-old controversy in a recent interview.

Jake Paul, while juggling his YouTube and Vine antics back in 2017, was fast-becoming one of Disney’s biggest stars. The then 20-year-old played Dirk Mann on the sitcom Bizaardvark for two seasons.

However, his stay on the set was cut abruptly short in June 2017. He parted ways with the project, and there was a mixed reaction.

Back then, Jake Paul said that he and Disney “came to the agreement” to mutually part ways. However, others have claimed the star was fired over a series of controversies, including a news segment that saw neighbours complain about the then-Disney star.

Paul has rubbished those claims though. He doubled down on his initial statement three years ago, saying that he played along with the community sentiment as a joke.

“It’s funny because, for the last three years I’ve sort of ran with everyone saying, “Oh, he got fired,” just because I think it’s funnier to say, “I got fired by Disney,” but in reality it was a mutual decision to split from each other,” he told The Daily Beast.

The decision was purely a business one, according to Paul. He wanted more money, and Disney wasn’t offering it.

“They weren’t paying me enough. I was making millions more — per week — than I was on that show, and it was a mutual decision for us to split up,” he added.

“Everyone I worked with on that show was fantastic, but from a business standpoint it didn’t make sense. I was aging up and wanted more money.”

Jake Paul has since gone on to grow his career on YouTube, even expanding into boxing the likes of AnEsonGib on a Mike Tyson card, something the younger Paul brother said was the highlight of his life.

However, the real reasoning behind his parting with Disney will always be questioned.
