xQc reveals what triggers him most about the modern day internet

Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel will take aim at a number of things during his rage-fueled rants but there might be no stranger target than flipping out about the current state of the internet. 

The former Overwatch League professional has become known for his signature rage when something doesn’t go his way on stream or when something just comes into his crosshairs and he has to get his opinion off his chest.


That has led to some incredible rants, raves, and highlight clips – Overwatch when some members of his chat pushed him to log in to his Plug DJ account – a music streaming service – in a bid to get the stream music changed up. That set him off.

“This is something that triggers me really hard dude. If I try to log in to a trash website, like a big website that is kind of trash like Twitter, Facebook, a huge site where it’s really bad if you get hacked – there’s no captcha, no nothing,” ranted xQc, as he took aim at website security.


He continued with his rage, adding that “trash” websites like NeoPets and Newgrounds have multiple layers of captcha. As ever, the streamer had to turn his anger to the next level, stating: “Find the dog in this picture, find the six buses, find the three fucking crosswalks, the nine street lights, two taxis, six airplanes – yo dog, I’m trying to log in, not do an IQ test bitch!”

Anyone who has ever come across a captcha log-in will understand the point and frustration that xQc was describing, even if he was blowing it slightly out of proportion.

The streamer has never been known for keeping a cool head – especially when it comes to menial things like logging into a website. Yet, who knows, maybe someone from NeoPets was watching and decides to downgrade their security from having to spot 100 crows in 30 seconds. 


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

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.
