xQc takes on “misogynistic” Twitch viewers
On his April 22 Twitch broadcast. The 25-year-old hit out at “misogynists’” who make up excuses for why they think women don’t deserve their success.
“There’s a lot of successful women out there. And they show a lot of good incentive, and they have good content,” xQc said mocking the detractors. “Legitimate misogynists will say “No, they have bad content!” like when there is a big Pokimane hate. “Nah bro, she’s only growing because of x, y, z.” And they will say “Content is bad, trash.”
He then goes on to explain how their argument falls apart as big female stars like Pokimane have a huge fan base “All the people that watch and the millions of followers that they have disagree with your stupid a** take!”
His rant quickly went viral on different social media platforms – many of the users praised him for taking a stand and one week later Pokimane herself thanked xQc for his takes on “misogynistic” Twitch viewers.
“Thanks X, you’re a real one. Never in my wildest dreams would I imagine myself on an LSF post with xQc saying something nice about me, and most of the top comments also saying something nice about me. I slept really well last night, let’s just say that,” she said.
Surprisingly, Poki explained that xQc’s rant was refreshing as she’s had “numerous” experiences with fellow streamers saying bad things while live just for views. The Morocco-Canadian then revealed that these same people would message her acting like a friend.
She then expresses’ that she will never engage with these kind of people because this will only provide them with more content.
