Even Streamers and Content Creators aren’t strangers to this issue. Recently, two of the most prominent faces in the online content creation space, xQc, and Dr Disrespect, expressed their problems to Elon Musk himself.

Recently, the popular streamer wrote on Twitter, “MY BLUE CHECKMARK DRAMATICALLY LOST IT’S VALUE (-99%) IN THE LAST COUPLE MONTHS.” Claiming that ever since Elon Musk has come on board and introduced the subscription plan a few months ago his checkmark has lost its value.

“WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO UPGRADE TO A SHINY YELLOW ONE PLEASE?” added Felix. This tweet attracted a lot of attention from other content creators. Even the Call of Duty veteran and Streaming icon Dr Disrespect joined the fray as he jumped in the replies to share his mind on the matter.

“Same with me too Elon. I don’t have gold chains like X, but I do drive multiple Lamborghinis with gold interior stitching on my headrests,” said Doc. He claimed that just like X, he also deserves a better checkmark, most likely a yellow one. To seal the deal, he claims he is better than the former, as he is “6’8″ and athletic as hell.”

How did the fans react? 

The fans avidly followed this exchange on social media. They expressed their thoughts on the matter. Many of them sarcastically claimed that even if they are not that important, they also deserve a yellow checkmark, throwing a subtle jab at the streamers for publicly “requesting” new checkmarks.
