xQc rages after Overwatch teammate sabotages “paid” meditation session

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.

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.

David Dobrik makes assistant Natalie co-owner of pro soccer team

Ever the extravagant gift-giver, David Dobrik has stepped up with his birthday present for his assistant Natalie Mariduena, by buying her part-ownership of a professional soccer club.

In the past, David has gifted a ludicrous amount of cars, gifts and cash to his friends, fans and strangers alike.

David gifted Natalie her dream car, a baby blue Ford Bronco, for her birthday last year, so was probably a little lost for how to one-up himself this time around, especially considering how miserable a year most of us have had.

So, instead of buying her a material gift, David made Natalie a part-owner of a professional soccer club. Yes, really.

Natalie is David’s assistant and best friend — and she’s definitely reaping the rewards.

Angel City Football Club is one of the planned expansion teams in the National Women’s Soccer League, expected to begin play in the 2022 season.

Based in Los Angeles, California, the team has a number of high-profile investors including Hollywood actresses Natalie Portman and Eva Longoria — and, now Natalie from David’s vlog.

Tricking her by saying they’ve got a meeting, David instead blindfolds Natalie and takes her out into the middle of the Banc of Los Angeles pitch, which featured a huge banner on one side saying “Angel City FC proud owner, Natalie Mariduena.”

Naturally, she was completely shocked and clearly at a loss for words, simply asking David “what the heck” is happening.

What’s great about this gift is that it’s more of an investment than anything, with Natalie likely to make money from the club for as long as it exists, and without even having to spend a single dime herself.

It’s not clear how much of an ownership stake Natalie now owns in Angel City FC but, no matter the amount, it’s a seriously impressive present, and one she won’t be forgetting any time soon.
