Twitch star xQc decided to try his hand at some meditation while he was waiting for an Overwatch match to start, and lost his mind when a rude teammate pulled him out of his zen.

We all know the struggle of queuing up for an Overwatch game and having to stand by for what seems like forever for a match to be found, with some Competitive rounds taking up to an hour to load in.

xQc wanted to be productive during his wait, and decided to follow a YouTube meditation video to calm the senses and have a good stretch – something that was interrupted by another player.

xQc’s meditation interrupted

On February 1, the 23-year-old indulged in some yoga between matches, and pulled up a video guide in which he tried to follow along in real life.

After one specific game where his team won 3-2, he yelled out “Chat! Two more! ARGHHHH!” while pounding his chest, before he tried to loosen up and prepare for the next one by sitting on the floor and imitating the instructor.

The Overwatch pro dived right into the zone, and seemed genuinely relaxed and calm while he performed various poses such as crossing his legs, bending over forwards, and stretching his arms out.

A match loaded in quicker than expected, and just as the Canadian reached forward and grabbed his toes in unison with the instructor, a random teammate joined the voice channel and screamed, “WHAT’S UP MOTHERF**KERS?!”

As quick as lightning, he scrambled to his feet, rushed back over to his PC, and paused the soothing voice of the yoga video while his Twitch chat went wild. “Motherf**ker, are you kidding, dude?” he asked. “Huh?” the player replied, before the pro hit back with “Do you know how rude that was, what you just did?”

After the stranger responded with “yeah,” xQc explained that he wasn’t happy he was rudely interrupted. “Dude, I was just in the middle of a paid meditation session with Jessica!”

One lesson to be learned from this is that you should never disrupt the Twitch streamer while his mind’s in the zone and he’s trying to let loose, as he won’t be happy at all.

xQc is one of the top personalities on the platform with over two million followers at this time of writing, and constantly entertains his audience with his variety broadcasts – even with yoga.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
