Who is Alex Quackity? YouTuber trends after fans freak out over his good looks
The focus of Alex Quackity trending seems to be a probable fan-meet selfie that went viral
Twitter is a funny place, made more enticing by the use of trends — especially the curious case of YouTuber Quackity whose fans were left worried when he randomly began trending on June 13. Usually, the random surge in tweets happens when celebrities die, so fans fear the worst at all times in incidents like these. But to the absolute delight of Quackity's fans, the gamer was trending simply because he exists.
The focus of the trend seems to be a probable fan-meet selfie of Quackity that went viral in the late hours of Sunday. By midnight the Twitch streamer was trending because fans were freaking out about his "breathtaking looks" and how he "looks pretty in the sun". The way the trend picked up out of nowhere is telling of the incredible fame the Mexican gamer has amassed on the social media platform ever since he began developing YouTube content, eight years ago. And even though Quackity was recently in headlines for being banned by Roblox once again, his fans are more obsessed with his selfie game.
