xQc hilariously pranked while sleeping during 35-hour Twitch stream

Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was left completely confused when his housemates doused him in silly string during his sleep.

Since stepping away from the Overwatch League in 2018, xQc has become one of the most popular channels on the livestreaming platform – with thousands of fans watching on a regular basis.  

The streamer is well known for his hilarious antics, as well as his signature rages, but some viewers will watch him do anything – and that even includes sleeping for a good few hours. Yet, it helps when his own housemates chime in and, quite literally, wake up the stream. 

Blizzard EntertainmentFans can still catch xQc playing Overwatch now and again on Twitch.

The former Dallas Fuel player started a mega long stream on June 26, watching videos with his viewers before moving on to playing Overwatch. Before he knew it, the broadcast had been online for 24 hours and the tiredness began to set in. 

After wrapping up his games, the streamer returned to watching videos with his viewers but even that proved too much as he laid down and drifted off to sleep while still broadcasting.  

However, less than a few hours into his sleep, he was abruptly woken up and set upon by his housemates with cans of silly string – with xQc completely confused by what was happening to him. The Canadian didn’t even offer up any words during the incident as he tried to process the situation. 

The prank came as a part of xQc’s massive stream, which lasted a total of 35 hours before he finally shut it down. 

After 26 hours, the streamer finally threw in the towel completely, settling down on the floor, still in the view of his camera – while the videos that his viewers had recommended continued to play.

Considering xQc was broadcasting his sleep for nearly 10 hours and fans stuck around, another sleeping stream might not be out of the question.

However, he might want to lock a door or two next time so that his housemates can’t terrorize him with silly string.

Nessa Barrett hits back at attacks telling her to kill herself

TikToker Nessa Barrett has, once again, had to hit out against some of the trolls who harass her online, after their bullying took a sinister turn. 

Barrett has had a difficult few days after becoming unwittingly involved in the Jaden Hossler and Mads Lewis ‘diss track’ drama.

After hinting at a collaboration with Hossler on Twitter, she was accused of ‘shading’ his ex girlfriend and former friend, Lewis by hiding a range of Twitter replies referring to her.

However, judging by her recent Tweets, Barrett has enough problems of her own to concern herself with someone else’s drama, as she opened up about some of the intense abuse she had recently received online on Twitter.

Nessa Barrett appeals to fans to leave her alone.

In a series of Tweets, she appealed to trolls to “stop telling [her] to kill [her]self,” explaining that she doesn’t “need to hear it anymore on top of [her] own thoughts [she] battle[s] everyday.”

Giving an insight to the struggles of being in the public eye, Barrett tells fans that they “have no idea how draining it is.”

Fans have rallied around Barrett following her Tweets.

In response to these raw and honest Tweets, fans on Instagram rallied around the TikToker, with one user saying: “Imagine receiving thousands of death treats I could never — all I have to say is she’s so strong.”

Another user said that the fact that she had to tweet this was “so sad,” while a further user said “TikTok is so toxic damn.”

Nessa Barrett’s mental health battle

Nessa Barrett has bravely spoken out about her experiences with mental health several times in the past. In an August interview with Entertainment Tonight, she opened up about being diagnosed with conditions like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

“I’ve been in therapy for anxiety since I was like, six,” she said at the time.

“And then, when I was about 14, I was misdiagnosed with depression. And then, recently, I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.”

Being a singer as well as a TikToker, she channelled a lot of her mental heath struggles into songs such as her debut single ‘Pain,’ which she explains was written during a “really vulnerable time” where, among other things, she was once again receiving a lot of hate online.

She also spoke out on Twitter in September about the “serious” and “personal” nature of her mental health issues after she was filmed crying in a restaurant by celebrity paparazzo Kevin Wong.

Hopefully, Barrett’s latest Tweets will be enough of a wake up call for trolls to stop harassing her when she is already feeling vulnerable.
