Two of the most popular Twitch streamers appear to be feuding, after xQc saw a clip of Tyler1 respond to a request to play with him with a resounding “f*** xQc”.

Both Tyler1 and xQc are known for being somewhat hot headed, outspoken characters, which is part of the reason both are so popular on the live streaming platform.

It appears xQc had said he wanted to play some Blackout with Tyler1, or at least someone suggested this to Tyler1, but his fellow streamer was not interested at all.

While playing Blackout, the new battle royale mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Tyler1 gave a brutal answer when his chat suggested xQc wanted to play.

“xQc wants to play? f*** xQc”, Tyler1 said in response to the query from his chat. xQc, watching a clip of this moment on his own stream then launches into a tirade.

“F*** tyler. He was stuck all weekend, breastfeeding Michaela,” -xQc then imitates Tyler1 doing exactly that, calling him a “f***ing pussy.”

The two streamers are not known to collaborate often, and perhaps this exchange is an insight into why, although it could simply be an isolated heated moment.

In truth, Tyler1 rarely plays with other streamers in general, so xQc maybe shouldn’t take it to heart that he turned him down on this occasion, but Tyler1’s response was admittedly harsh.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

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.”
