Always looking for drama, Félix "xQc" Lengyel has claimed that some popular streamers are paid to do charity streams.
The former Overwatch League pro definitely stirred up some major beef when fans began questioning the validity of Benjamin "Dr Lupo" Lupo's recent charity streams for St. Judes. Some fans even started to wonder if the money Dr Lupo donated to causes was actually given to him by the organization ahead of the stream.
The popular streamer decided to address the issue on Twitter, stating that he's "never been paid to raise money for St. Jude."
Of course, that's not where the drama ended. In fact, it was only the beginning.
Ninja's wife banters with xQc over paid charity stream claims
When Jessica Blevins, wife to Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, saw xQc's comments she was quick to respond.
"This guy always has some trash to say. I’ve literally never heard of a single streamer getting paid to raise money, and per FTC rules if they WERE it would have to be easily known to the public. Keep doing amazing things!" Blevins tweeted.
xQc shot back that her comment was "rich" and that he was shocked she "found the time" to listen to his clip about the paid charity streams despite being busy posting "virtue signaling posts."
As the back and forth continued, Ninja decided to step in.
"X-It’s very clear you don’t respect women, or really anyone with again, the trash, I’ve heard you spew. If you want to be sexist and act like because I’m married to a successful man that it makes me a do-nothing mooching woman, that’s your choice to be that kind of person," Blevins shot back.
At this point, esports insider Rod "Slasher" Breslau caught wind of the drama and made some comments of his own. He called for a charity tournament between xQc and Ninja.
Popular streamer Natalia "Alinity" Mogollon decided to voice her own opinion on the matter.
"Oh, this is an easy bet. Team Ninja loses ez," she tweeted.
This is where even more drama ensued.
Ninja continues beef with Alinity
In response to Alinity's tournament predictions, Ninja had some choice words for the controversial streamer.
This tweet was in reference to the time Alinity tossed her cat on stream. This deeply upset many in the streaming community, who demanded that Twitch ban Alinity for animal abuse. That never happened, even when Alinity was caught doing other inappropriate and potentially abusive things with her animals on stream, including feeding her cat alcohol.
"You have no class. It's only a playful joke, and you have to be rude like this? Pretty shameful dude," Alinity responded.
Ninja sarcastically replied that his original tweet was also just a "joke," but by then Alinity had already decided Ninja was the "most toxic person in gaming."
As the drama continued, Slasher decided to weigh in once again. This time, he posted a "troll" survey where followers could vote for xQc by retweeting, Ninja by "liking" the tweet, and Alinity by replying. But Slasher had replies disabled.
Ninja's long rivalry with Alinity continues
After Alinity let her dog, Luna, sniff her crotch on camera for an uncomfortably long time, Ninja started ranting about her behavior while on stream with Timothy "TimTheTatMan" Betar.
While playing a game of Fortnite, Ninja started making jokes about Twitch allowing Alinity's questionable behavior.
"If you’re a cat-thrower, Twitch is the place for you. I don’t always throw my cats, but when I do, I prefer to wait until after I’ve poured vodka in its mouth. Hi, I’m Alinity, and welcome to my..." Ninja started before breaking into laughter.
Ninja took another jab at Alinity when Herschel "Dr Disrespect" Beahm shared a comedic post comparing Twitch to Mixer.
This tweet was a reference to the time Alinity appeared to accidentally expose her entire breast during a live broadcast. After the nip slip, Twitch seemed hesitant to ban the popular streamer. After dragging their feet, Twitch finally gave Alinity a 12-hour ban. Not even Alinity agreed that this was a long enough punishment for the offense.
Ninja and others have continuously called on Twitch to stop playing favorites. While Twitch may not have any problems with Alinity's behavior, the streaming community has continued to call her out on Twitter.
