Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is now enforcing a new rule in his channel, banning anyone who breaks it – after getting fed up with bad song choices from his viewers.

xQc uses a site called ‘Plug DJ’, which allows his viewers to link songs to play next, essentially giving his viewers free reign over what music is played during his streams.

However, despite giving his viewers such power, xQc is still picky over what he likes to hear – to the point that if someone links something he isn’t fond of, he will hit them with a ban.

This new rule was introduced after a viewer had requested ‘Riptide’ by Vance Joy, a 2013 song which has admittedly been somewhat overplayed since, which xQc called “sleeper (boring) as hell.”

“Guys, there’s a new rule, if you link something like this, if you’re on Plug DJ, and you request shit like this, you’re fucking banned,” the former Overwatch pro explained.

After skipping Riptide, the next song in the queue played, which equally wasn’t to xQc’s liking, and so instantly exclaimed “also banned.”

How exactly his viewers are to know when a song will be to Lengyel’s liking is unclear, but presumable 2013 pop songs aren’t the way to go.

With thousands of viewers regularly tuning in, there will likely be a few who missed this rule and face the fate of the ban hammer unknowingly, just for requesting their favorite Vance Joy song.

YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie Kjellberg defended Elon Musk during his October 18 upload. The Swedish star hit out at those getting upset over the Tesla CEO’s viral meme about changing the price of the Model S.

The one thing PewDiePie and Elon Musk have in common is their love of memes. The YouTube star even had the tech giant host an episode of his popular Meme Review show back in 2019 that has over 26 million views.

The Tesla CEO faced backlash from critics in October after tweeting that the Model S price was being changed to $69,420. The YouTuber defended the billionaire during his latest upload, and argued that people can’t take a joke.

PewDiePie defends Elon Musk’s Model S meme

During his October 18 episode of Last Week I Asked You, Pewds addressed the criticism Elon Musk received from some over a tweet he made on October 14 about the Model S price change.

“I saw some people being so butthurt over this. It’s like, dude, it’s just a joke. I’m sure Elon knows it’s ironic,” he said, before he jokingly imitated critics in a baby voice. “So childish, he’s like a 12-year old! … Yeah, that’s the joke! Ever hear of fun?”

The creator then applauded the CEO for being attuned to meme culture: “You just want another overweight, gray-haired, boomer billionaire? I don’t. I think we have enough of that!”

The tweet that PewDiePie was referencing was made on October 14 when Musk posted, “The gauntlet has been thrown down! The prophecy will be fulfilled. Model S price changes to $69,420 tonight!”

The joke exploded on the social media platform, instantly going viral with over 330k likes and 35k retweets. While many found the meme to be hilarious, some critics hit out at the CEO for being irresponsible with the company’s prices.

This isn’t the only time PewDiePie has defended Elon. In past uploads, the 30-year-old has admitted to viewers that he’s admired the tech CEO for his innovations while still being wired into internet culture.

With Kjellberg being so fond of the tech giant, maybe the Tesla owner will someday return as a guest host on Meme Review. Maybe the Swede could also convince the billionaire to show up for a round of Among Us – now that would be entertainment gold.
