During his November 2 broadcast, Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel opened up about the “weird” messages that fans send him. The popular streamer revealed the most bizarre letters he’s received on Discord from viewers.

xQc’s rise on Twitch has been explosive, as the former Overwatch pro has become one of the platform’s most subscribed channels. Thousands of viewers tune in daily in to watch the Canadian’s energetic streams.

During a recent broadcast though, the star revealed the “weird” behavior some fans have exhibited towards him on his Discord. From text message drafts to homework, the 24-year-old exposed some of his strangest interactions.

The Twitch personality opened up to viewers in the middle of his November 2 broadcast, and explained that certain fans would message him “thousands” of times on Discord – despite him not actually replying to them. 

“There are some people,who have sent me more than a thousand messages. They type stuff like “oh, today this happened at school.” It’s not hundreds of messages. It’s thousands. Crazy amounts,” he said, before detailing some interactions that he called “weird.”

“Others send me pictures or texts and are like “don’t mind me, saving this for later!” … They use me as a notepad. And that’s just weird. I don’t know why they do that. And it’s not one, it’s nearly dozens!” he said.

According to the popular streamer, he had one fan that would even send him homework. “Some guy sent me his homework. Like the whole thing dude!” he revealed. Although he didn’t make it clear if the viewer actually wanted him to complete it for him or not.

While his chat asked him to leak the convos, xQc shot them down stating that it would be “rude.” He then continued to list another example and said, “This viewer would tell me stories about how his day went.”

Lengyel theorized that these individuals only continue to message him because he doesn’t reply. This isn’t the first time the Twitch star has talked about strange interactions he’s had with Twitch viewers. In May, he detailed a “disgusting” image sent to him by a banned user.

While streamers getting flooded with letters is not too surprising given their fame, xQc’s experience with individuals sending thousands of messages despite no reply is certainly odd.

Twitch has taken action against its most-watched broadcaster, Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, following controversy during the GlitchCon 2020 Twitch Rivals event.

xQc was accused of ‘stream sniping’ opponents during the Fall Guys portion of the event, which landed him in hot water with other big-name streamers, including shroud, DrLupo and tyler1.

Shroud and tyler1 both speculated that he could face a ban from the platform, although wondered if Twitch would be lenient given Lengyel’s status on the platform. He was by far the most-watched streamer in terms of hours watched throughout October 2020.

However, stream sniping is explicitly mentioned as a violation of Twitch’s community guidelines, and all broadcasters are held to the same standard.

In addition to his temporary ban from the platform, the length of which has not been clarified at the time of writing, xQc is also banned from all Twitch Rivals events for six months

He has also forfeited his prize money from the event.

xQc immediately apologized for his actions in the aftermath of the stream sniping fiasco, and asked his fans not to defend him. He admitted it was wrong: “I’m sorry for my actions. I thought it would be funny. It did not change the outcome but it was still malicious. Sorry.”

This is xQc’s fourth suspension from Twitch in as many years.
