The streamer was in the middle of his broadcast when ‘ROFLGATOR’ wanted to have a popularity contest between the Twitch star and another VRC user. After xQc got into a hot tub in the game, the other player began to tell him about the rules of the contest.
However his voice began to glitch during his explanation. “We have rule changes by the way. It’s even better at the e e end of the party, the girls are going to decide between you and ch a a ance.” His voice continued to skip, which caused the personality to laugh.
He finally finished and said “Do you accept?” But the Twitch personality couldn’t stop cracking up at the vocal lag, before he exclaimed, “You’re voice is bugged, dude!”
Another user ‘TheBigMeech,’ who was also sitting in the hot tub, told him, “Yo your voice is f**ked!” ROFLGATOR tried to talk some more, however his voice completely lagged out as he began to repeat the same syllable over and over.
“Meech, can you tell him. Can you tell tell tell…” he began. The user mocked him, saying, “Yeah yeah yeah,” which caused the Canadian to literally roll on the floor in laughter.
Frustrated, the lagging player screamed, “Ahhhh! Can you hear me or not?! Hello!? Oh oh oh…” Everyone in the room then began to burst into laughter at his vocals.
