Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was left humiliated after his attempt at trolling a random kid in Fortnite backfired hilariously.

Not only is xQc well-known for his career in the Overwatch pro scene as a Tank main, he’s also gained a huge following on Twitch for his cheeky personality and bold outbursts during broadcasts.

His latest stint saw the 23-year-old trying to embarrass a child while playing the popular battle royale title Fortnite, but unfortunately for the streaming star, his attempt fell flat.

xQc’s failed Fortnite troll

xQc was playing random duos in Fortnite on November 11 when he was matched up with a young boy who didn’t seem to know who the streamer was.

The two ended up placing 46 out of 100, and while they were still spectating the match together after their defeat, the Twitch star decided to try and troll his teammate.

“Hey, you there?” he asked his partner. When the boy said he was, the Canadian asked, “Did you hear about Joe?”

“What? Oh, yeahyeahyeah…” the kid responded. “Yeah, yeah, he’s cool!” xQc was confused by this, as his teammate was supposed to say no. “Really? Wait, wait, maybe we’re not talking about the same Joe. What’s Joe’s full name?” he asked.

“Joe Mama!” the kid responded, shocking the streamer as he didn’t think he’d be caught out. “Okay…” the Canadian replied, before putting his head in his hands out of embarrassment at his failed joke.

xQc is currently one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, boasting over 1.6 million followers and over 25,000 subscribers as of the time of this article.

While he’s mainly known for his Overwatch skills, the streamer does venture out into other games from time to time – even if it’s just to troll kids in Fortnite.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
