xQc mocks crying female Twitch streamer after GTA roleplay goes sour

Popular Twitch streamer Greekgodx was in the middle of a GTA V roleplaying stream when he encountered a female player, who played her role so well that he thought she was legitimately crying.

After stealing from the player and questioning if she were crying due to the altercation, viewers from Greek’s stream moved to her broadcast – where they ended up leaving some nasty messages.

Other top streamers discussed the issue on Trainwreck’s ‘Scuffed Podcast’ shortly thereafter, where Overwatch pro and Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel showed no sympathy for her plight.

In fact, xQc even mocked the player’s emotional response to the hate, after fellow streamer Trihex pointed out that she’d cried during a live broadcast.

“Trihex, you just made me cry, dude,” xQc argued. “You don’t get to make me cry. Holy shit!”

xQc wasn’t alone in his thoughts, either; streamer Jaycgee was in agreement, stating, “If that’s gonna make her cry, she needs to stay off the internet, because it’s gonna get way, way worse.”

“She should have enjoyed the free publicity,” streamer scxrlet64 concurred. “I’d be like, ‘Hi guys, yeah, I suck, okay!’”

The player in question, going by the handle ‘plumbobtv,’ apparently fumbled a “deal” between Greekgodx and another player, prompting him to steal from her.

While plumbob’s voice appeared to be shaking, she claimed that she was merely playing up her character, ‘Kim Sharp,’ – but it wasn’t long before her chat became overwhelmed with viewers from Greek’s channel.

“Why r u crying,” several users wrote, followed by incessant spam of the ‘Trihard’ emote.

Others accused her of being a stream sniper, and even called her “mentally unstable,” leading plumbob to cry during her broadcast.

Greekgodx later claimed that he didn’t “promote any of that shit” in regards to the chat’s infiltration of plumbob’s stream, accusing “random” GTA fans of going under the guise of his fanbase to harass the player.

“Anyone who’s going there and harassing has nothing to do with me,” Greek said of the debacle. “My fans don’t do that shit.”

Greek likewise apologized on camera to the player in question, reiterating that he never asked his chat to abuse her – and even placed his own chat in three-month sub mode in response to the madness.

Jake Paul claims Disney didn’t fire him after Bizaardvark controversy

Jake Paul has dismissed new claims he was fired by Disney back in 2017 during his stint on sitcom Bizaardvark, addressing the three-and-a-half-year-old controversy in a recent interview.

Jake Paul, while juggling his YouTube and Vine antics back in 2017, was fast-becoming one of Disney’s biggest stars. The then 20-year-old played Dirk Mann on the sitcom Bizaardvark for two seasons.

However, his stay on the set was cut abruptly short in June 2017. He parted ways with the project, and there was a mixed reaction.

Back then, Jake Paul said that he and Disney “came to the agreement” to mutually part ways. However, others have claimed the star was fired over a series of controversies, including a news segment that saw neighbours complain about the then-Disney star.

Paul has rubbished those claims though. He doubled down on his initial statement three years ago, saying that he played along with the community sentiment as a joke.

“It’s funny because, for the last three years I’ve sort of ran with everyone saying, “Oh, he got fired,” just because I think it’s funnier to say, “I got fired by Disney,” but in reality it was a mutual decision to split from each other,” he told The Daily Beast.

The decision was purely a business one, according to Paul. He wanted more money, and Disney wasn’t offering it.

“They weren’t paying me enough. I was making millions more — per week — than I was on that show, and it was a mutual decision for us to split up,” he added.

“Everyone I worked with on that show was fantastic, but from a business standpoint it didn’t make sense. I was aging up and wanted more money.”

Jake Paul has since gone on to grow his career on YouTube, even expanding into boxing the likes of AnEsonGib on a Mike Tyson card, something the younger Paul brother said was the highlight of his life.

However, the real reasoning behind his parting with Disney will always be questioned.
