xQc pushes back against Nadia’s defense of Pokimane amid backlash over cookie prices

Kickstar Felix “xQc” Lengyel weighed in on Twitch streamer Pokimane’s ongoing cookie fiasco by taking aim at Nadia’s comments on the controversy.

Pokimane’s launch of her Myna Snacks cookies has been rocky, with the streamer coming under fire for the product’s price and its similarities to another item found at Costco.

Although Pokimane and a Myna spokesperson explained that the cookies’ recipe was unique and not a “drop-shipped product,” the debate over pricing continued, with the streamer even jokingly mocking “broke” fans who complained about it were upset to pay $7 per bag.

“If a girl sells cookies, do you want to say something? The immense hatred of women online has gotten out of control,” the Call of Duty streamer noted. “That’s why there is a hurdle for women. Yes, it’s easier for us to advertise, but it’s almost impossible to reach the top. The standards set for us are extreme. However, the men at the top can say/do anything without any consequences.”

As Nadia’s opinion about X spread, she caught the attention of xQcwho responded sarcastically to her opinion.

“Yes, Nadia, it is the hatred of women that has given the cookies their price,” the French-Canadian stormed back. “Coincidentally, it is also the hatred of women that has led to everyone living paycheck to paycheck and not being able to afford luxury goods. There is no legitimate criticism here, tell them, Queen.”

So far, neither Nadia nor Pokimane have addressed xQc’s comments, but the cookie seller has indicated that it plans to lower the price of Myna snacks to make them as affordable as possible following the backlash.
