xQc takes a dig at Hasan editing tactic to avoid react content backlash – Popular Twitch streamer xQc expressed shock after uncovering an editing technique used on Hasan’s channel to avoid further controversy surrounding react content.
Last year, xQc and Hasan faced immense criticism for their react streams, where they would watch and respond to others’ videos then reupload just their reaction. Critics accused them of stealing views from original creators.

Now it seems Hasan’s editors are being careful to avoid more backlash. In a recent clip, Hasan gets up during a react segment, leaving the video rolling on an empty chair. But his editor replaced this with past footage appearing as if Hasan was still there reacting.
Upon noticing this, xQc called out the blatant editing trickery. He referenced how he was heavily criticized previously for similar react content, yet Hasan was now being praised despite using edits to fake a continuous reaction.
xQc took particular issue with the fact that the same editor who had publicly condemned his react practices was now deploying slick edits to remove any dead air and make Hasan’s reaction seem uninterrupted.
The juxtaposition highlighted the perceived double standard between the treatment of smaller creators like xQc and top streamers like Hasan by some critics and viewers. While xQc felt he was “canceled” for react content, Hasan appears to be getting a pass for utilizing edits to avoid the same pitfalls.
The react content debates have been one of the biggest streaming controversies lately, intertwined with accusations of stealing content. Hasan’s editors seem determined to avoid anymore damage by artfully editing his reactions to be continuous.
The react content wars continue to fuel heated debate about ethics, editing, and community bias in the booming streaming world.
