DrLupo brandishes Ninja, xQc, and Alinity “children” for Twitter beef

One of Twitch’s biggest streamers, Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, has criticised some of his fellow creators for getting into a row on Twitter following Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s remarks about paid charity streams.

After DrLupo and xQc appeared to settle some misunderstandings on Twitter surrounding the divisive issue of streamers being paid by charities to do fundraiser streams, the thread soon turned into a shouting match between xQc, Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollan, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, and his wife Jessica Blevins. This left DrLupo frustrated as it detracted from both his intention to quash the issue and the wider conversation around charity streams, with the remarks from all parties getting rather personal.

You can read the entire thread here, but it essentially begins with Jessica accusing xQc of “always having some trash to say.” The former Overwatch pro then defends himself and takes a snipe at her “virtue signalling” and “Gucci handbags.” This then sees Ninja come to his wife’s defence and calls xQc “a piece of shit” before Jessica labels him “sexist.”

The row then takes another turn after esports consultant and journalist Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau jokes that the matter should be settled in a 2v2 charity bout, to which Alinity then responds by saying it would be an “easy bet” on Ninja’s team to lose.

Ninja, who has had choice words for Alinity in the past, then takes a shot at her infamous incident with her pet cat, before she replies by calling him “pretty shameful” and the “most toxic person in gaming.” Yep, proper playground stuff this.

After the dust settled on this battle of the streaming meme titans, DrLupo didn’t hold back on what he thought of the situation, labelling all parties as “children” and asking them to “shut the fuck up.”

“To see that when I try to post clarification over the good that I try to do for gaming, and have gaming personalities just fucking going at each other over some dumbass, petty shit… Shut the fuck up,” a frustrated-sounding DrLupo says during a livestream. “Ya’ll literally just make streamers look worse every time this happens. Oh man… It’s like a bunch of fucking children screaming at each other over who’s more entitled and who’s more standoffish.”

DrLupo is renowned for his immense charity streams that have raised millions throughout his streaming career, and it is disappointing to see the conversation dragged away from such an important topic because of this Twitter feud.

xQc has also apologised for his initial comments around charity streaming, and says he acknowledges the honest work of the likes of DrLupo and never meant to cause “collateral damage” to the reputation of charities.
