xQc speaks about his current conditions in his recent stream

As noted by The Gamer, xQc appeared visibly frustrated and spoke about recent incidents of hate, abuse, and swatting related to him in his recent stream. For those unaware of swatting, it is an act of making a hoax call to 911 or any emergency service helpline in a deliberate attempt to dispatch a large number of armed officers to a particular address.

xQc, when asked about his current living situation and conditions, says, “Millionaire, by the way, moving house every two weeks? I have to move out dude, I can’t even go back to my house, man, it’s not safe.”

“Maybe if people stop showing up to the f**king house and stop f**king breaking in, maybe I’d go, home dude. Jesus Christ,” he adds.

Previously in July, xQc revealed that there had been a break-in at his place where a man intruded inside with a crowbar. xQc’s discomfort and uneasiness, given he had to move out several times owing to numerous circumstances, is only normal.

xQc was even considering moving back to Canada, as these incidents have left him deeply traumatized.

Abuse on streamers online

If this seems like a lot, then there are horrible situations that marginalized streamers have to face on a daily basis. Hate raids have become a common occurrence in their streams at this point. Chats are often seen to overflow with hateful slurs, racial abuses, and sometimes to the point of spamming Nazi imagery as well!

Streamers stood against such atrocious behavior online and made the #ADayOffTwitch campaign trend. This movement had all participating streamers go off Twitch on September 1.
