xQc loses his mind in another classic rant about anime fans

Popular Twitch streamer, Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, roasted people for watching “internet garbage” anime shows, in another of his infamous on stream rants.

Anime has snowballed in popularity in recent times. Stemming from Japanese culture and animation techniques, the genre soon filtered through to Western society.

From Pokémon and Dragon Ball Z to the Fullmetal Alchemist series, there is something for everyone… apart from xQc, it seems.

It’s been almost 22 years since ‘Pocket Monsters’ (more commonly referred to as Pokémon) debuted as an anime series.

While anime seems to tick the boxes for many, the former Overwatch pro has a somewhat divisive stance on the genre of film, TV and animation. 

After turning his hand to the latest release in the Dragon Ball Z series of games, xQc has been having a hard time acclimating to the game’s mechanics after failing during the tutorial.

Despite being overrun by the game’s AI-controlled tutorial, Lengyel persisted to stream his efforts in a bid to entertain his faithful following.

After being prompted to watch the anime series, the Canadian responded: “We are not watching it… Why? I care more about memories, nostalgia [and] people’s experience more than you’re stupid sh*t weeb internet garbage, okay?”

The Twitch streamer wasn’t done there, as he continued his rant. “People watched this when they were young, on their sofas downstairs with some mac and cheese, with their Dad yelling up top,” xQc exclaimed. 

Frantically yelling his words, Lengyel continued: “Not in their f**king Mom’s basement, at 29-years-old, with their f**king unwashed neck-beard!”

This isn’t the first time xQc has experienced a Dragon Ball-induced rage during a livestream, after the 24-year-old reached his final form during a livestream after his game crashed before he could take-on Frieza in one of the game’s iconic battle sequences. 

While the Canadian’s rant may have caused uproar among his audience, the large majority of his Twitch chat appeared to agree with his stance — despite being at his wit’s end with all of the requests to watch the anime show.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
