Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to weighing in on an array of topics during his streams, and he had a few words to say on ‘cancel culture’ during his May 29 broadcast.

This comes directly after the James Charles and Tati Westbrook drama, which created shockwaves throughout the internet and caused a lot of controversy regarding cancel culture and whether it’s right or wrong.

Beauty YouTuber Tati Westbrook uploaded a 43-minute video titled ‘BYE SISTER’, in which she ultimately put the brakes on her friendship with James Charles and accuses him of taking advantage of her, while also putting him on blast for “trying to convince straight men that they’re gay” and for promoting a competitor’s hair vitamins.

James and Tati used to have a really close friendship.

The internet hated James Charles for a little bit and called for him to be ‘cancelled’, until he hit back with his own evidence and seemingly flipped the situation, with many fans now directing their hate towards Tati instead.

Overwatch pro xQc has since weighed in on cancel culture during his stream, where he watches a Jubilee video on the subject, titled ‘Should We Cancel Celebrities for Their Crimes?’

In the video, a group of people are asked to divide into two groups of ‘Anti-Cancel Culture’ and ‘Pro-Cancel Culture’, before being requested to take a seat in the middle of the room if they disagreed with the statement ‘I would buy an artist’s work even if they committed a violent crime.’

As the people begin to move to sit down, xQc gets visibly irritated, shouting, “fuck you, fuck you, fuck all of them.”

“You’re a bunch of fucking cucks, dude,” he exclaims angrily. “They lie to themselves, dude. Even if they even owned a Spotify account, they support these people, dude. Even if you simply own an account, you support them. Like, what the fuck is wrong with these guys?”

Cancel culture is such a divisive and difficult subject to talk about, so it's easy to see why xQc got so heated when talking about it.
