Today, the top streamer on Twitch was forced to stop streaming because he forgot to pay the electricity bill. He’s a millionaire. You hate to see it.
These days, Félix “xQc” Lengyel is especially more mature than the guy who got started from a Overwatch League team in 2018 after a series of misconduct, but no one will ever, ever, ever, ever, accuse him of being specially designed in its approach to streaming. For better or worse, chaotic energy is part of his appeal.
Today, in the middle of one GTA role play stream, Lengyel suddenly went offline. No one was sure why. A little later, Lengyel took to Twitter to explain:
“Forgot to pay the electricity bill,” he wrote in large letters Kotaku has edited to keep your eyes sore. “The power went down, so did the power. Will be back later today or tomorrow. Ups and downs last time, but generally good! ”
As r / Livestreamfail and Dexerto has pointed out, Lengyel is a millionaire. Autopay also exists. In response to these facts, Lengyel, a Canadian, blamed Canada.
“Autopay was on, but my credit card limit is the same as I had when I was 12, so sometimes it’s empty and the payment can’t go through,” he said on Twitter. “Only Canadian banks, move on.”
Co-streamer (and housemate / partner) Adept backed up Lengyel’s account.
“Yeah, I was going to try to push for a longer power, but we forgot to pay our electricity bill, so they shut us down,” she wrote on Twitter. “Look for a diaper.”
Millionaire streamers: They are just like us!
