Former Overwatch professional, Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel, went off on his May 18 stream, fuming with people who get upset with having shows and movies spoiled for them.

The popular Twitch streamer has made his feelings known in the past that he doesn’t care for spoilers, but did vow to ban anyone who ruined Avengers: Endgame for any of his viewers despite not wanting to watch the movie for himself.

Following the release of the film, which broke many box office records, YouTube star – Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg – also hit out at the idea of spoiler prevention for the film, with Marvel keen to get the hashtag #Don’tSpoilTheEndgame trending.

Robert Paul for Blizzard EntertainmentxQc was fond of Destiny for revealing Game of Thrones spoilers on Reddit.

xQc also controversially praised fellow streamer Steven ‘Destiny’ Bonnell who came under fire after sending spoilers to random users on Reddit for popular TV series, Game of Thrones.

Finally, the Canadian has revealed why he fumes over people who get upset when their favorite movie or TV show is ruined for them.

“I will not go full Destiny guys, but here’s my take,” he said. “If you cared that much about spoilers, why don’t you fucking watch the piece of shit movie or show, in a decent fucking time [period]!

“Fuck, go see it, if you care about it that much!”

While xQc is known for his controversial takes and moments of rage on stream, the topic of spoilers is still a touchy one for many. 

The former Dallas Fuel star has also recently been criticized for not paying for the creators of his Twitch emotes.

The streamer argued that the clip had been taken completely out of context and ultimately ended up deleting the emote from his channel to ensure there were no further arguments.

Noah Beck & Griffin Johnson under fire for “cancel culture” comments

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Griffin Johnson are taking heat from critics due to their divisive comments on “cancel culture,” as told during an episode of Johnson’s “Sway Way” podcast.

Also known as “call-out culture,” the term “cancel culture” has become a popular phrase in the past few years as social media has flourished, allowing users to highlight abuse, bad behavior, or other negative actions from people online.

When these bad behaviors are brought to light, the person responsible is usually called out, boycotted and ostracized, causing them to be publicly shamed and often ousted from their professional and social circles due to the resulting backlash.

“Cancel culture” itself is a divisive term, with many believing that it outright doesn’t exist, as those being “canceled” deserve to be called out for their actions and that those who are “canceled” are never truly brought to justice from the outrage.

Still, others feel that “cancel culture” is going too far and is resulting in a toxic online environment — but either way, people are no longer willing to abide bad behavior from anyone, and social media has given users a platform to speak up against things they consider to be unjust.

TikTokers and Sway House members Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck recently spoke out on the social phenomenon during an episode of the Sway Way podcast — and their thoughts on the subject have sparked quite a bit of backlash against them.

“People are getting canceled for things that were totally acceptable,” Beck said. “I don’t want to say that people have gotten really sensitive, but at the same time, they have, and it’s like… there were some things that were acceptable back then that people could say, now it comes back on them five, 10 years later.”

“I mean, I’ve done some things in my past where they come off as controversial today, but they weren’t that deep,” Beck continued, referencing his own controversial history on social media. “I can see why people think it’s a big deal now, but it’s like… I never thought I would have this platform. I never thought I would have this stage. I was growing up just playing soccer. I liked a few tweets, but I didn’t think anything of it at the time.”

Needless to say, both Beck and Johnson have received a substantial amount of criticism from listeners, with one user writing: “He really said that he never thought he would have gotten famous… so if you’re not famous, you can be homophobic and it’s not a big deal?”

Both boys have yet to speak out on the outrage, which only continues to grow in wake of their already storied history of sparking division among TikTok viewers.
