xQc claims unfair backlash compared to Pokimane amid snack controversy – In the aftermath of Pokimane’s Myna Snacks pricing controversy, streaming sensation Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel asserts that he faces more substantial backlash than many streamers, including Pokimane. The ongoing drama centers around Pokimane’s launch of Myna Snacks and the subsequent criticism regarding the pricing of the Midnight Mini Cookies, coupled with remarks joking about fans being “broke.”
During his Kick stream on November 22, xQc weighed in on the situation, drawing parallels to his own experiences with public backlash. Watching Ludwig’s commentary on Myna’s cookie drama, xQc expressed his belief that despite Pokimane’s controversy, he has faced harsher criticism for less significant matters.

“By the ratio of people who were exposed to the news, she got less flak for flexing on somebody broke as a millionaire, right, in public than I did for flexing on another multi-millionaire with a f*cking watch in private,” xQc stated, referring to a previous dispute with H3H3 in August.
XQc further emphasized the discrepancy, remarking, “That’s insane, let that sink in.”
In recent weeks, xQc has been under scrutiny for flaunting his wealth on social media, including tweets showcasing a luxury watch and clips reacting to the Israel and Palestine conflicts. Despite these incidents, xQc noted that the duration and intensity of the backlash he faced did not match the ongoing controversy surrounding Pokimane.
The comparison sheds light on the complex dynamics of public perception within the streaming community, with xQc highlighting what he perceives as a disparity in the level of criticism faced by different content creators for their respective actions. The ongoing scrutiny surrounding Pokimane’s cookie controversy serves as a backdrop to the broader conversation around the consequences and public reception of streamers’ behavior on social media platforms.
