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.

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.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left in awe after Sykkuno managed to shoot him dead on the OTV Rust server, and it was safe to say he was impressed by the streamer’s aim, saying “you killed me, you’re amazing!”

The Offline TV Rust sever has been a huge talking point since the start of this year, as with the enormous host of streamers participating there are endless amounts of content for fans to consume on the daily.

The server even ended up needing to be split into two after people’s varying playstyles caused some tension and calls for a need to separate PVP-focused players and roleplay-focused players.

While it was originally released in 2013, Rust has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the OTV server.

However, that’s not to say that there haven’t been plenty of iconic moments between streamers, as even though the game can get pretty violent, the vast range of streamer interactions has led to some great scenes for fans.

That was the case for Sykkuno fans when he managed to kill shroud, leaving everyone impressed with his skills.

While they were competing for the Oil Rig, Sykkuno managed to get shroud with his gun as he jumped, and it didn’t seem like shroud expected it at all, dying with a bewildered “no, Sykkuno!”

Sykkuno’s hand immediately flew to his mouth, laughing and apologizing for the abrupt kill.

Michael sounded equally as impressed as he did betrayed, after a few seconds of silence saying “Sykkuno you killed me, you’re amazing!” But the compliments didn’t end there, with Micheal adding, “you destroyed me!” and even “you’re the better gamer, man” to which Sykkuno replied, “no, no, most definitely not.”

Sykkuno has talked previously about how he’s a “humongous fan of shroud” in the past, so this interaction definitely proved to be a positive one for the rising streamer.

One fan on Twitter said, “Sykkuno downed shroud and even shroud is proud of him,” another saying “that Sykkuno/shroud friendly PVP was beautiful to watch… what in the wholesome rivalry.”

The PVP moment was definitely an entertaining one all round, and while the results were unexpected, no one was more impressed than shroud himself.
