Soon after proving that he doesn’t gamble on stream, xQc started complaining about other creators on Twitch that fans were associating him with. Even though he didn’t take any names, he might have been talking about Trainwreckstv.

“It’s not a flex. It’s just to show you that things were different and there wasn’t an added bing, bing, bing. It just wasn’t. It wasn’t like that. I didn’t take a deal like that because that is scummy. Because that is scum s**t. I didn’t take scum s**t. Stop lumping me with hardcore scum**gs. Stop it!” ranted the streamer.
