Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel let his Fortnite teammate have it after being asked if he has Tourette’s. 

xQc is one of the biggest Twitch streamers in the world, having quickly risen to the top after his switch from professional Overwatch.

He’s known for his high-intensity streams, where he does and says basically anything he wants, while definitely not taking any smack from anyone.

The Canadian streamer is one of the top subscribed channels on Twitch.

The Canadian was playing some Fortnite during one of his streams when his teammate sparked some controversy by asking him if he has Tourette’s. The Canadian wasn’t having any of it, and after a short moment to take in what he’d heard, he went on a classic rant.

“Dude, dude. Who the f**k is he, 12-year-old little b***h. Holy sh*t, holy f**k! I ought to whoop your a**. If I said that sh*t at your age I would’ve had my skull kicked in. You said do you have Tourette’s and then you laugh? What are you, nine?”

His teammate stayed to listen to the rant and Felix showed no sign of stopping, telling his teammate he shouldn’t have a computer and mocking his laugh. He did, however, end it on a nice note, wishing him good luck before going back to chatting with his viewers.

Some of the chatters claimed that xQc had gone too far with his comments. But he defended himself stating: “That was not too far, he made fun of my speech impediment – that’s a no-no. Then he went on to insult me and I can’t defend myself because I’m older? F**k off!”

Most of his chat loved the situation anyway and laughed throughout the whole rant – which is somewhat of an xQc classic by now.

Of course, whether xQc was actually upset or just playing up for the camera remains to be seen, but it’s unlikely that this young Fortnite player will ever forget the toungue-lashing he receieved from the former Overwatch pro.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
