Twitch donations has been a way to send messages to your favorite streamers, fans often use it to share their problems, success and several other emotions. xQc for one gets multiple such messages but too many of them washes the emotions put in them for him.
Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel made the most-watched stream 2020 for nothing, his massive fan base that has been built with years of his effort put him to where he currently is. The same fans look up to him to share their problems and make sure they reach it to him via Twitch donations. These donations take up money, and are accompanied by a message often aimed towards the streamer, fans expect the streamer to read it aloud in front of everyone, which sometimes helps them gain somewhat of a relief.
“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotions are fine when they’re true.” “The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” “Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.” he said.
xQc feels sorry for everyone going through a tough time, but at the same time, he begs fans not to share any fake emotional message just to get Lengyel’s acknowledgement. Over use of donation messages only to get their name read by xQc puts the real emotional messages down at the bottom, thus washes away the value and emotional strength of the real people going through troubling times.
