The Canadian streamer has received a lot of backlash over the years but he has shown that he can dish out criticism just as well as he can take it. On his recent stream, Lengyel took digs at the various influencers who recently pulled off the infamous cryptocurrency scam.

A ‘pump and dump’ scam essentially occurs when a person promotes a particular stock so that many people invest in it thus raising the price. When it is at a high enough price, the promoter sells the stock leaving the rest to incur losses. This is what Faze members Nikan, Teeqo, Jarvis, and Kay did recently. Other influencers like Ricegum and Sommer Ray also had a part to play in this debacle. Together these influencers have over 50 million followers.

xQc throws shade at Faze crypto scammers

Felix ruthlessly mocked the group indicating that they spent soo much time together because they were conjuring these plans. While xQc has made his fair share of mistakes, he has never intentionally tried to cheat somebody. Faze has since issued an official statement revealing that they have removed Kay and suspended the other members from the group.

They informed fans that, “We have made the decision to remove Kay from Faze Clan and have suspended Jarvis, Nikan, and Teeqo until further notice.” 

Despite all this, Faze Kay has held his stance that he was only trying to help his fans earn some money. His tweet reads “While I’m very passionate about the crypto space, it’s extremely complicated & I still have a lot to learn & I caution everyone to look closely before investing.”

This was a poor outcome for all parties involved as they would have made more than enough money from their existing streams of income. Do you think these influencers deserve the backlash that they are getting from the community? Let us know in the comments down below.
