Carson ‘CallMeCarson’ King is the latest social media celeb to join in on OfflineTV’s enormous Rust server, though it didn’t take long before his Twitch stream was overrun with Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s angry fans.

Carson hadn’t streamed on Twitch in 12 days but his return to the platform has already landed him in hot water. Having joined the OfflineTV Rust server with 50 of the most popular content creators, it didn’t take long for thousands of fans to explode at Carson.

While the server is intended to be safe, with no real fighting allowed, some mishaps have already caused big drama. Shroud targeted xQc as the one who would make the server ‘implode,’ and while he was involved, Carson might have beaten him to the punch.

Just an hour into his time on the server and thousands of xQc’s viewers hopped over into his chat. Here’s how Carson made a mess of things early on before lashing back at those who piled into his Twitch stream chat.

As xQc began explaining some rules to his group, Carson randomly decided it was time to knock him down. After chasing him around for a few seconds, he hit xQc with a cleaver and refused to explain why.

“I’m making a good impression on everyone on Twitch,” he joked after the crime. While nothing came of it at first and xQc just respawned like usual, Twitch viewers weren’t happy with his actions.

In just five minutes, a huge group of viewers from xQc’s stream jumped over to berate Carson in his Twitch chat. “13,000 viewers? That many xQc frogs came to my stream? What the hell.”

A seemingly simple action – and a relatively harmless one at that – caused these fans to flame Carson as though the server had been ruined. “What is your deal? He asked. “I killed him… in [a] video game. Get a life. Holy s***.”

While viewers were clearly upset, xQc didn’t even seem all too bothered in the moment. The group went about their business and continued playing together for another hour before Carson hopped off.

It’s unclear if this interaction will keep Carson from returning to the star-studded Rust server. Adding fuel to the fire with his comments, however, is sure to keep Twitch fans coming back, for better or worse.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
