Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has weighed in on Greta Thunberg’s speech at the United Nations Climate Summit, calling the young activist a “puppet to deliver regurgitated stats.”

The UN Climate Summit has been all over the news this week. Massive school strikes on September 20 saw millions of students around the world walk out of class to call out political inaction on climate change before diplomats met in New York.

The leader of the movement, Greta Thunberg, took to the stage on September 23 to speak on behalf of all young people worldwide about the crisis. However, xQc had something to say about the speech, and how people reacted to it.

Twitch: xQcxQc had a dig at Greta Thunberg’s speech at the UN, but it wasn’t for what she said.

On a September 24 broadcast, the outspoken Twitch star roasted her speech – but it wasn’t for what the speech contained. He was more concerned with how it’s taken a 16 year old Swedish girl delivering a heartfelt speech for people to wake up to the crisis.

“It doesn’t take a crazy mature adult to understand that she isn’t spitting any new facts or crazy research breakthroughs – there’s no invention dude.”

He nodded along as she read out the statistics, but questioned why people were listening to her and not the scientists who came up with it.

“When the scientists say sh*t, when they present their data, people sleep,” he said. “But when they put a small girl, like a puppet, to deliver regurgitated stats – ‘oh my god, true! I’m illuminated! 50%, so smart, young leader of our nation.’ Chill the f*** out dude.”

His Twitch chat questioned his statements about the emotional speech, thinking that he was roasting Thunberg herself. However, he mentioned that nothing she said was wrong – just that it’s disappointing it got to this point.

“I’m just interested about this, I’m not hating on it for no reason. She’s not wrong, but it’s just regurgitating dude. I’m not even laughing, it’s sad.”

xQc is known to share his mind often about anything from streamer drama to real life issues. He has recently commented on Twitch’s content banning spree, as well as poor parenting after receiving an email regarding refunded donations.

His blunt personality means he can sound a bit heated and harsher than most, but at the heart of this issue, he sided with Thunberg. He might have roasted her speech, and how people reacted, but he delivered a positive message about his stance on the pressing issue.

The ‘like’ feature on TikTok isn’t exactly revolutionary, but like all social media platforms, it has become a sort of currency – the more likes you have, the more popular your content is. It is through likes that people like Charli D’Amelio and Addison Rae have rose through the ranks to become TikTok royalty.

But as great as likes can be for our own content – whether it be raising your own profile or giving yourself a confidence boost – liking other people’s content can be a great way to save and categorise some of your favourite videos!

As a feature, it isn’t immediately obvious how to find the videos you have previously liked on TikTok, so here’s an easy guide to show you how to find some of your previous likes on the app.

How to see videos you’ve liked on TikTok

The simple act of liking a video doesn’t just give the creator some of that desperately-craved validation – it also adds it to a list of all the videos you’ve liked in the past, meaning you can watch some of your favourite content again and again.

Here’s what you need to do if you want to go ahead and access this automatic list:

  1. Login to your TikTok account on your phone – in order to have a saved list of liked videos, you have to have an account!
  2. Go to the ‘Me’ tab, which you can find on the bottom right of your screen.
  3. The first thing you will see is all the videos you’ve posted – to find the videos you’ve liked, press the middle tab, which is represented by a heart and an eye.
  4. Watch all your favourite videos to your heart’s content!

All of your liked TikTok videos are stored under the ‘Me’ section on the app.

How to like a video on TikTok

If you’re new to TikTok, you might be wondering how you can like videos in the first place! Each social media app has its own way of showing appreciation to content creators, and this is no different. As mentioned before, liking a video is especially useful because it can help you save it in a list to re-watch later.

To like a video on the app, all you need to do is press the heart-shaped icon that is on the right side of a video. When the heart turns red, this is how you know that you have successfully liked the video. Liked a video by mistake? Simply press the heart icon again and it will go back from red to its original outline.

Ultimately, TikTok has so many great filters, features and trends, but working out how to navigate them can be challenging for a first-time user. You might have noticed, for example, that anime filter going around that everyone is using.
