Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has slammed fellow Twitch streamer ‘InvaderVie,’ after she went viral in the wake of making controversial comments about Twitch subscribers. 

On April 18, a number of Twitch users shared their criticism for InvaderVie, after clips surfaced of her slamming viewers for not subscribing. “It doesn’t matter how broke you are,” she said. “If you have time to watch Twitch, you have ten dollars, truly. If you don’t have ten dollars, you probably don’t have time to watch Twitch, because you should be working.”

Responses to the comments were largely negative, with many arguing the comments exhibited an entitlement, as well as an ignorance of the current global situation, which has seen many people with less disposable income.

Now, ex-Overwatch pro turned full-time Twitch streamer xQc has weighed in with his thoughts. While live on April 19, a viewer asked Lengyel what he made of the situation.

“It’s f**king brain-dead,” xQc responded. “I know we’re not allowed to talk sh*t on other [Twitch] partners, it’s a f**king zero-head, brain-dead f**king take, is what it is.”

xQc echoed the sentiments of a number of community members — that accusing viewers who aren’t subscribing of being greedy or poor is unfair, and that InvaderVie should focus on her own streaming.

“If you have a certain number of viewers and nobody subscribes,” he finished, “maybe make a better environment then – a better stream then… better rewards – do something! It’s not because people are forgetful or greedy, it’s because your stream f**king sucks balls!”

Twitch subscriptions are tiered, with an average subscription costing a viewer around $5 a month. The platform’s most popular streamers have thousands of concurrent subscriptions, earning them a considerable amount of money per month.

However, with the ongoing global health crisis, it is more understandable if some viewers are reining in their subscriptions to save money for more essential things.

This is a view xQc and his viewers seemed to echo, arguing that viewers don’t need encouragement to give a streamer money if the content they are watching warrants a subscription.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
