One of the biggest Twitch streamers in the world, Felix "xQc" Lengyel, recently became the subject of online ridicule, after he admitted to forgetting to pay his electricity bill.
The former Overwatch pro was faced with a rather grim situation on live stream recently, after his GTA RP stream on NoPixel's server suddenly went offline. Viewers were left understandably confused as their screens all flashed the following familiar backdrop:
As fans continued to ponder over the meaning behind the abrupt ending of his recent Twitch stream, xQc took to Twitter to provide a much-needed sense of clarity:
In a hilarious reveal, xQc stated that his power had gone out as a result of him forgetting to pay his electricity bill.
In a follow-up tweet, he appeared to blame it on "just Canadian bank stuff," as he claimed that despite autopay being on, the payment couldn't go through because of his credit card limit, which has reportedly been the same since he was 12 years old.
In light of this hilarious gaffe, Twitter users had a field day at xQc's expense, as they proceeded to mock him over his millionaire status and mind-numbing forgetfulness.
