Popular Twitch star Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel revealed why one fan contacted him recently and actually billed the Overwatch pro for “damages”.

xQc’s quick speech, explosive rants, and insane Overwatch skills has resonated with millions as the Twitch star is currently the number third on the most actively subbed channel list for the streaming platform.

However, one fan didn’t seem to care much for the Canadian’s loud screaming, as the pro explained that they demanded he pay for “damages” as a result of yelling too much.

While playing Overwatch on September 25, xQc turned to his audience to tell them a story of a recent exchange he had with an angry fan. “I don’t know if I told you this before. But there’s this guy a couple weeks ago, sent me an email that was serious,” he started.

“He said that I screamed so loud, that it broke his headphones, right. And he sent me the receipt and he billed me! HE BILLED ME!” he shouted, getting across the ridiculousness of the situation. “I ain’t paying for shit, dude. You kidding me!?”

While most of his chat seemed to find the story absurd as the streamer emphasized how serious the fan was being, one person complained that the Canadian had told the story already recently in a previous broadcast, which led to xQc lecturing him.

“When people hear the same story, they don’t get mad. They’re kind of bored of it. But then the new people didn’t [hear it]. I know I don’t lose the old people but the new people will find it funny! I don’t give no fuck brother. I’ll tell my story 80 times! 80!”

This isn’t the first time the Canadian streamer has gotten a little heated because of chat. Recently during his September 23 broadcast, the 23-year-old raged out after a donation called him French, which also led to the Twitch star lecturing his audience.

While many may know xQc for his wildly popular streams on Twitch, he actually got his start as a pro Overwatch player, and is considered one of the best tanks in the game.

After taking a year break to focus on his streaming, the popular personality made his return to the pro scene on July 29 when making Team Canada’s roster for the Overwatch World Cup in 2019.

Freddie Flintoff is a former professional cricket player and current host of BBC’s Top Gear. Now in his third series as presenter, Flintoff has revealed the best cars he’s ever owned throughout his career.

When the BBC announced Freddie Flintoff as one of the new presenters for Top Gear back in 2019, it was a decision that not many had seen coming. Famous for his past life as a professional cricketer and his witty humor, Freddie seemed an unlikely choice to present the motoring show.

Since then, he’s settled into the role fantastically, and along with Paddy and Chris, brings his own brand of humor to the show. It also turns out that Freddie is a big petrolhead at heart too, which he revealed in an interview with CarBuzz.

Freddie Flintoff’s car history

“I love driving that car” admitted Freddie when asked about his Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Purchased from co-host Chris Harris, Flintoff admits it gets a lot of attention “because of how loud it is” when driven around England.

The Camaro isn’t the only exciting car that he has ever owned, and it turns out his ‘back catalog’ of cars reads like a typical celebrity petrolhead’s garage.

Discounting the aforementioned Camaro, Freddie has owned a number of noteworthy cars. Given that his first car was a Porsche Boxster, he started off on a strong footing. With a Porsche as the first car he owned, his collection went from strength-to-strength as his career progressed.

BMWs, Porsches, and Ferraris all feature in Flintoff’s history. One notable inclusion was an E39 BMW M5 which he said was “one of his favorites.” He clearly loved the old M5, as he went out and bought a new version as well.

Freddie has been attempting some ridiculous stunts while on Top Gear, including attempting to take a Jaguar XJ220 to 200mph:

Porsche was bound to make another appearance since his first car was from the German marque, and it came in the form of a 997-generation Porsche 911 Turbo. Hailed as one of the best ‘everyday’ supercars, there aren’t many petrolheads that haven’t owned a 911 at some stage of their life.

Other supercars that he has owned include a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, a Ferrari 458, and a Lamborghini Murcielago. For luxury driving duties, Freddie owns a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, which he’s admitted he “looks a bit dodgy” while driving.

So, with all of the incredible cars he’s owned, which was his favorite? A humble Ford Mustang convertible, which he owned back when he lived in Dubai! Clearly, a flashy badge isn’t everything for Freddie.
