It’s common for popular streamers to be scrutinized by the public but Felix “xQc” Lengyel has had enough of the “ridiculously high standards” of Twitter users.
Recently, political streamer Hasan “HasanAbi” Piker was harassed by Twitter users for purchasing a house in Los Angeles worth $2.74 million. But xQc voiced support for HasanAbi when fans told the streamer that the purchase was “immoral” and he should be donating more money to charity.
“This is a braindead take,” xQc said, noting that he does donate to charity privately. xQc decided to comment on the situation, saying that HasanAbi “can’t win” in the situation. This brought xQc to comment on Twitter’s mob culture as a whole.
“I think Twitter is really odd. I think they’re very unreasonable. Everybody thinks they’re like upstanding number one citizen, like perfect individuals that never make mistakes, that are always flawless and everything else is all trash. They act like being human is not a real thing and you have to be rational and perfect,” xQc ranted.
xQc added that this behavior is “disgusting.”
Shroud, streaming community responds to HasanAbi judgement
Many of xQc’s fans agreed that Twitter users often live in a “perfect world that doesn’t exist.”
“I think it’s really odd,” he continued, “and [it] literally never changes. I think it’s just disgusting. They’re what we call ‘utopia-Andys’. They live in a realm or a life that isn’t real. They live in a world that doesn’t exist. They live in a projected perfect world and it’s very odd.”
Many of xQc’s viewers echoed his comments, suggesting that Twitter users hold certain people to unrealistically high standards. A lot of streamers feel that streamers are held to high standards that the trolls don’t live up to themselves. This includes Michael “shroud” Grzesiek, who said HasanAbi was getting wrongfully bashed because he’s in politics.
