xQc's attempt to be nice to Pokimane backfires hilariously

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s attempt to ‘help’ Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys backfired spectacularly, after he tried to enlist the aid of his viewers to make a positive impact.

As one of the most popular channels on Twitch, xQc commands a loyal following – with thousands of fans tuning into his daily streams and sticking around for hours, even when he falls asleep

Those viewers regularly roast xQc with their donation and subscription messages but they’re clearly fans in the first place, otherwise, they wouldn’t be there. But, when the streamer tries to use them for good, not all of them want to follow his lead.

During his July 5 stream, xQc had been watching videos with his fans when he was given a link to a mini-documentary on the ‘story of Pokimane‘ – a fellow popular streamer with over three million followers, but who has also experienced controversy in the past.

After watching the 17-minute video, the streamer couldn’t help but notice the like/dislike ratio was only a small advantage in the way of likes. Yet, after some chatters told him to refresh the page, the dislikes quickly took the lead as xQc’s viewers bombarded the video with even more ‘thumbs down’.

Surprised by the ratio, he hatched a plan to get his viewers to ‘help’ Pokimane by adding a ton of likes. Addressing his viewers, xQc said: “You can do whatever you want in your free time, ok, you can revert your choice or cancel it – everybody, go to the video right now. Let’s see if we can make a positive difference on the world.”

However, with this being xQc, things rarely go to plan as his chat decided to turn against him and add thousands more dislikes.

Disappointed with how his viewers responded, the former Overwatch League pro returned to the video a few minutes to see if they had changed their minds in the meantime.

Of course, they hadn’t, and things only got worse as the dislikes took a healthy lead. To make matters worse, xQc also noticed that his viewers had begun upvoting negative comments too. 

Unfortunately for xQc, his fans have only contributed to the disproportionately negative reaction – with, at the time of writing, dislikes leading the way by over five thousand reactions.

It remains to be seen if Pokimane fans can overturn the deficit, or if the damage has already been done.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
