xQc isn’t the biggest fan of misreporting

xQc is undoubtedly one of the most popular people in the world of streaming. He has amassed millions of followers over time. And as time moves forward, he’s only going to get more popular. While popularity is great and all, it also has some downsides. For instance, xQc can be the subject of misreporting.

Whenever something happens and I say something and somebody has their take on it or they say it a certain way or something and they kind of misreport it,” the popular Twitch streamer says, showing his viewers how easy it is to be misconstrued, before proceeding to talk about the effects of misreporting.

He also talks about how people don’t always know what they’re reading and that they believe the words they’re reading to be true. And xQc makes a good point here. It is indeed true that not everyone has insider information. It is also true that people often don’t know any better. And xQc feels the way people can be manipulated easily through misreporting to not be a very good thing. “That’s really, really bad,” he says, referring to the effects of misreporting.
