Here's why xQc believes 19-year-old dating 17-year-old is 'just wrong'
On Friday, May 12, French-Canadian streamer Felix ‘xQc’ brought up a contentious issue during a broadcast when he said that some of his Twitch chatters were ‘really weird' regarding a topic.
Felix and Georgie ‘Pokelawls’, another content creator, were playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive when the conversation began. The former questioned the latter's opinions on the circumstance of a 19-year-old dating a 17-year-old.

‘It’s just wrong’
The Twitch celebrity shared his opinion of the situation and said it was "wrong." He stated, “In most context... you're going to hit hurdles, and I think it's just wrong.” Seven hours into his stream, the 27-year-old star was playing CS: GO alongside Pokelawls. xQc said, “Okay, here's a major stun-lock. Okay? Chat was being really weird about this. Let's say some guy is 19, and he is dating someone who's 17. Thoughts? ...Thoughts? I do not think that's fine. I don't think that's fine! I don't think that's fine.”
A short while later, xQc clarified why he believed it was improper for a 19-year-old to date a 17-year-old. He asserted that there is a ‘major imbalance’ since the former has a whole different set of ‘tools and knowledge’ than the latter.
‘Such weird logic’
More than 335 community members commented on the streamer's viewpoint in the YouTube comments area, which was hopping with fan emotions. A user commented, "I feel like people forget that XQC literally dropped out of college and knows absolutely nothing about anything but has this weird ego complex where he thinks he knows everything and has anywhere near close to a decent take because he's a big streamer lol." Another user said, "Such weird logic. You could use this to argue against dating outside your economic class. Is someone making six figures dating an unemployed living on social welfare wrong?" Similarly, another YouTube user commented on the video, "Logic in the USA is something else, man. Once someone turns 18, they can date anyone within any age range and that's okay, but at age 17, it's considered weird to date someone who is only two years older than them. It doesn't make sense..."
xQc is undoubtedly one of the most well-known figures in the streaming sector. The Quebec native started Twitch livestreaming in 2016 and has already racked up over 11 million subscribers. He was the platform's top English-speaking content creator at the time this article was written.
