Twitch streamer Félix "xQc" Lengyel has ridiculed Imane "Pokimane" Anys' approach to discovering that her former friend Dimitri "GreekGodx" Antonatos had blocked her on Twitter.
Antonatos has been a lightning rod for criticism recently, calling out Natalia "Alinity" Mogollon for filming people without their expressed permission and being "desperate for content." Then, he announced a break from streaming over the summer and told his followers to "live their lives and stop watching streamers live them for you." And, earlier this month, a viewer asked him to unblock streamers Nick "Nmplol" Polom, Matthew "Mizkif" Rinaudo and Malena "Malena" Tudi on Twitter as they are his friends.
Antonatos replied, "define 'friends' - none of my friends are blocked as I see it." Yikes. Given that the streamer used to live with Polom and Tudi and appeared in videos with them, this was a surprising response. For whatever reason, Imane Anys was curious to see whether or not she had been blocked by Antonatos and she found out that was the case.
All of this argy-bargy makes for dizzying and dismal reading, so let's take a load off and watch this awesome compilation of the most hilarious things ever to happen on Twitch.
"Sadge," she said in a now deleted tweet with a screenshot of her former friend having blocked her. "Sad to see a friendship end this way but it is what it is. Please don't send hate his way." Even though Anys got rid of the post, screenshots of it were doing the rounds on social media and Félix Lengyel has hit out at the way that Anys handled the situation.
"No shot, you blocked me on Twitter? I'm going to tweet about it," said Lengyel while impersonating Anys (thanks, Dexerto). "You don't want to interact with my content? I'll tweet about it and let people know this is happening because I'm the bigger person." He argued that drawing attention to the block by Antonatos likely didn't have the effect that Anys anticipated and that it shows her in a bad light.
"This will be true now and it will always be true regardless of what you think... when you talk about people being blocked, it says a lot more about you than it says about them. That's just how it is. You can get mad at me for saying this, but that's how it works," continued Lengyel. Honestly, the whole thing sounds too complicated and I hope that having some distance apart from each other will let those involved move on from a very public falling out.
