XQC LASHES OUT AT TWITCH FANS EXPECTING HIM TO BE A ROLE MODEL: “I’M HERE TO HAVE FUN”

WHAT HAPPENED?

Following the backlash over his return to sponsored gambling streams on Twitch, xQc lashed out at fans expecting him to be a role model.

“Every day, it’s a new complaint, a new problem,” said xQc in a post on Discord, pointing to the outrage over him playing an online crane game as an example.

I’m not a hypocrite. I literally changed my perspective and voiced that very clearly over the last few months. I’m not here to be a role model.

I’m here to have some fun, so I’ll do it until it becomes boring. Turn the computer off and go speak with your parents and peers if you want a role model for your moral compass.

He also claimed that fans who are “genuinely hurt” by him doing the things he wants to do on stream, regardless of what it is, “probably shouldn’t be watching streams” at all if it affects them.

xQc concluded his statement by taking back his apology for gambling on stream in the first place. “I apologized because people led me to believe there was a problem. I was wrong. There isn’t any problem. Sorry for apologizing.”
