xQc Justifies Streamers not Supporting Valkyrae
Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter is a well-known name in the eSports industry and streamers alike. A recipient of a Game Award, she was dubbed the “Queen of YouTube” after becoming the platform’s most-watched female streamer in 2021. She is a co-owner of 100 Thieves, an esports and apparel company, has been a content creator for the brand since 2018, and is now the co-founder of her own skincare line.
She recently came out with her own skincare brand after 2 years of thorough research that is designed to protect skin from blue light pollution. The Blue Light Prevention Factor (BLPF), which according to the RFLCT website is similar to Sun Protection Factor (SPF), a measure of how much solar energy (UV radiation) is required to produce sunburn on protected skin, has been deemed useless by some users.
Félix Lengyel, better known by his online alias xQc or xQcOW, is a Canadian Twitch streamer, internet personality, and former professional Overwatch player. Lengyel played for the Dallas Fuel in the Overwatch League for part of the inaugural season before being released due to repeated controversy and suspensions. Lengyel has also played in the Overwatch World Cup for Team Canada in 2017, 2018 and 2019. He now streams full-time on Twitch as a variety streamer for the Canadian esports organization Luminosity Gaming.
xQc is one of the biggest if not the biggest streamer on the internet now and his option matters a lot. He explains why not many streamers are supporting Valkyrae in this controversy. He began by saying, “If there’s a problem with the product and the fact-checking, that’s kind of like her job.” He further added, “I signed the papers. I signed the contract. I did it on my own. It’s my battle. I’m solo. I don’t assume that the whole squad is on my side and now we’re fighting together. It’s just not how it works.“
