To his surprise, xQc later discovered that Pokimane had unfollowed him on Instagram. He expressed his belief that Pokimane should have understood that the tweet made about him was “just f****** stupid.”
However, xQc did not seem to hold Pokimane entirely responsible for her actions. In another stream, he acknowledged his own role in the situation, saying, “I understand that there is a social standing I need to uphold in order to maintain my friendship, and I didn’t do that recently. So, I’m not [on] the follow-list. What can I say, man, I’m a f*** up.”
The revelation of their strained friendship did not come as a shock to xQc’s viewers. Some theorized that Pokimane “has to uphold her image,” suggesting that she has taken a more family-friendly route while xQc has chosen a more brand-risk route in his content.
Others pointed out that the two content creators often see the world from different perspectives, which can lead to conflicts. Their differing views and approaches to content creation might be contributing to the tension between them.
As xQc addresses the fallout from his recent controversy, the gaming and streaming community awaits reconciliation between these two popular figures in the streaming world.
