After viewing popular anime Death Note on Twitch, Twitch broadcaster Felix “xQc” experienced the shock of a lifetime when he learned that fellow content creator Disguised Toast had been removed from the network.
Felix had some trouble on his hands, even though he never watched Death Note because he thought the same publishers owned the rights to Hunter x Hunter, which he had reacted to on his stream. As a result, he instantly notified his channel moderators, who instructed him to erase the VODs from his anime streams. He said at 00:58:44:
“Mods, Mods, please do the thing with both last VODs, ASAP.
xQc was informed by his Twitch chat during a recent reaction stream that fellow streamer Disguised Toast had been banned from the platform while viewing Death Note on screen.
What did xQc do after finding out about the recent bans?
After verifying the facts on Toast’s channel, xQc frantically attempted to contact his mods in the hopes of avoiding one of the infamous DMCA strikes. Especially since Twitch takedowns have grown regular.
Felix was watching Season 8 of MasterChef on his Livestream at the time. While he was concerned about being caught with anime VODs, it appears that he had no reservations about streaming the popular cooking reality show.
However, he still had previous VODs of him watching Hunter x Hunter on stream on his channel, so he contacted a mod and requested that the VODs be removed immediately.
Felix later went to Wikipedia to double-check his suspicions that the publishers of Death Note and Hunter x Hunter were the same. He flashed a sheepish grin to his supporters when he discovered they were the same.
Many fans responded angrily to Felix’s disparate activities, as he attempted to minimise his chances of being blacklisted. At the same time, they were perplexed as to why he continued to watch DMCA-protected programming such as MasterChef.
