Twitch streamer Felix "xQc" Lengyel has openly blasted content creators who use slurs during their livestreams. His comments come after co-owner of Full Squad Gaming, Jake Lucky, accused Adin Ross of making a homophobic comment during a stream, unaware that his audio was being recorded. 

Time and time again, we hear of content creators being banned from Twitch or YouTube for using an offensive comment during their livestreams. Some famous faces have suddenly found themselves in the firing line after a historical clip of them using a slur resurfaces on the internet months, or even years, later.

Now in an angry Twitter rant, xQc has called on streamers to "stop making slurs," proclaiming that excusing such behaviour for being historical, is not good enough. 

What Was The Adin Ross And Jake Lucky Drama?

On April 11, Jake Lucky tweeted a clip from YourRAGE's livestream, in which the streamer's companion made a homophobic slur, referring to someone off stream as a "f****t" not knowing he was being recorded. Lucky then shared the clip claiming that YourRAGE's companion was none other than Twitch streamer Adin Ross. However, YourRAGE quickly clapped back stating that it wasn't Adin Ross, but a "friend from high school."

The tweet comes fresh off the back of YouTuber Darren "IShowSpeed" Watkins' controversial comments in which he launched a sexist verbal attack on a female VALORANT player. A number of his fans jumped to his defence saying that his outburst was prompted by racist comments. However, it didn't stop Speed from receiving a wave of backlash online with many saying that his subsequent apology video wasn't sufficient enough. Especially, as it wasn't the first time he landed in hot water for having a sexist outburst

What Did xQc Say About Streamers Using Slurs?

Following on from Lucky's Twitter post, Twitch's most-popular streamer xQc also sent out a tweet in which he condemned content creators for using offensive slurs as well as their fans who defend their actions. In the rant, xQc said: "Stop saying slurs and stop making apologies for your f***king 'creators.' We 'used to' do a lot of things in the past. We don't live there anymore. No one is being soft, you are being dumb." 

However, xQc didn't stop there. Referring to streamers who make apology videos after being called out for their comments, xQc continued: "Apologise for yourself if that's what you believe in. Don't apologise for anybody else. You feel like you're right and don't want to apologise. Don't. Pay the price. Simple trade. No one forces you to do anything."

Adin Ross hasn't responded to the drama as of writing. However, Twitter users who've been following the drama have done nothing but, with Lucky's post sparking a heated debate online. Not to mention, with streamers and fans still at loggerheads over IShowSpeed's comments, it appears this particular issue is far from over.
