After fans accused him of wasting “their” money on a “cheating” arcade game, Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel threw a hilarious tantrum, ranting about the pressure to always be “ethical”.
On April 23, xQc decided to take its diverse stream content to the next level through gaming Toreba Crane Game — a game that lets you play classic arcade game from home and win real prizes.
However, after repeatedly failing to snag a prize, the Juicer Warlord became angry. Sensing the perfect time to rustle his feathers, some mischievous fans poked and poked until he burst.
Not only did they claim he was playing a “scam,” they also compared it to him playing on stream, even arguing that he was wasting their money on it.
Eventually he had enough and let go of the microphone.
“Why do you say it’s our money?” he said. “If I played with casino money you would be even more triggered. Either it’s your money and you get angry, or it’s someone else’s money and you get even more angry. You don’t win with you!”
Then, after some fans compared the crane game to gambling and despised him for streaming it, he lost it entirely. “Apparently I have to pave the way to damn heaven. Apparently I can’t just search for content these days.”
xQc explained that he feels pressured to always make sure his content “ethical, morally sound and consistent with all of our current acceptances,” before poking fun at the sheer scale of that pressure.
“I’m expected to save the world, fund every charity out there, take care of every social, ethical and political issue, cure disease and cancer, entertain conversations and raise friggin’ kids. i play games I am not raising children!”
It’s not the first time that xQc has gone off the rails in the stream. After all, who could forget the time he hilariously ranted about Apex Legends or the classic scold console that has become an internet phenomenon at this point?
What’s more, just as he was beginning to think it might actually be a “scam,” he finally said won an award.
Of course, that made it all the more fun and, ironically, helped him achieve his goal of providing quality content.
