xQc had some strong words for VR Chat streamers

Former Overwatch League player xQc shared his thoughts about the majority of VR chat streamers on his stream on October 7th.

“People saw [Pokelawls] become a bigger stream with [VRchat] so they try to imitate and leech off of it, but it’s all just kinda cringe and not funny and kinda dogshit,” xQc said.

Variety streamers like Poke are always looking for the next big game that will help grow their channel, but the difference for xQc is that Poke’s content was original, while the streamers who followed are just trying to copy his success.  

“Most Poke clips were really funny, and then everyone went to his room, they all sniped him,” he continued.

“It was forced interaction… the whole point of it being funny is that they are on their own and shit. You are ruining the whole purpose by trying to be a part of it. Fuck off dude.”

Clips like this are exactly why xQc was never going to mesh with Blizzard’s strict guidelines for Overwatch League players.

He is brash and outspoken on stream, and those same traits that made him popular on Twitch, earned him multiple suspensions from the league before he was eventually released from the Dallas Fuel.

Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
