r/Place has returned for April Fools Day 2022. This subreddit, allows all users the chance to add a ’tile’ to a massive canvas of digital art.
xQc beat his own personal record for peak viewership, hitting 233,000 live viewers, while creating his r/Place artwork.
Depicting the rear of a woman, the art was quickly censored, covered by a black shaded area.
Because the artwork is collaborative, each individual pixel can be changed by a single user. So, xQc encouraged viewers to join in and bring the ‘booty’ back.
With all the commotion, probably attracting Reddit users who hadn’t watched xQc before, his stream numbers sharply rose.
