You know, for a procedurally generated block game, Pewds and Minecraft together are more epic than I ever imagined.

It was genuinely hard not to get a little emotional at the end, and quite a few other moments along the way. This thing is way, way more memorable and special than it has any right to be.

He deserves everything awesome that happened to him this week. A fantastic entertainer, and in a age of fake people everywhere, down to earth, real, and gracious.

(Edit: Whoops! Sorry, Brap, I didn’t see your comment)

Also, looks like YouTube/Pewdiepie War is over at long last? Every video is monetized with a ton of ad spots, and now this.

Not a fan, but this was cool of them to do. Apparently, T-Series never got a video like this.

100 million subs is just insane!

Most Youtubers in my part of region are ecstatic when they reach even 10,000.

I’m discovering his older RE7 playthrough and :messenger_tears_of_joy:.

I enjoyed watching the first two episodes, but the third episode, wherein a Swedish man is rapidly approaching mental breakdown, had me laughing all the way through.

Maybe it helps that I’m playing RE2 Remake right now, and understand all too well how brutal these new games are with the never-ending tension/scares.

GOAT

Donates 50k to a corp that smeared him as an anti-Semite.
*chef kiss*
Gottem
Not really surprising, his whole "redpill" phase was just a way to create controversy and generate clicks. He was never genuine about it.

R.I.P. Pewdiepie. Another one bites the dust.

It seriously seems like he just bought his way back into youtubes good graces by paying the requisite toll. Expect a visible change in content. No more edgy pewdiepie. If that happens, we will have confirmation it was all an act.

Also Marzias veganism seems outright militant. I don't think that will be healthy if they decide to have a kid. Child might be starved to death.

The donation can be seen in 2 ways, or it is a a huge middle finger (50k for him is nothing), or something bigger is going on. I don't think is getting blackmailed but it really is strange, even th eediting of the video is really strange wuth the super sad face not fading away.

He hasn't been edgy in a long time. He's a pussy whipped soyboy.
Happened with another swedish e-celeb as well.

Looks like comments are being censored on his newest video? The comments defaulted to newest first instead of top comments like on all other vids then I go to top comments and it's people spamming the same thing.
Anti defamation league is blackmailing pewdiepie?

The ADL is one of youtube's trusted flaggers.

This is starting to make sense. People were being mass banned from r/pewdiepiesubmissions for mentioning the ADL thing. The mod gives retarded reasons in the sticky. 4chan is trying to rile people up? That's not a fact. Some shitty screenshots made by a handful of people isn't 4chan. There's like 10 posts here made by 8 or 9 different ip's. It's nothing. Everything that mod says is fishy. Also I would say he IS affiliated with the ADL since he is a youtuber and the ADL is one of their trusted flaggers.



I wonder if he ever saw this tweet

Also I just watched the 100 mil video and why is he so low energy? It feels so fake and scripted. He didn't seem happy at all. It was like somebody had a gun pointed to his head off camera.
And what the fuck is up with that Lords Mobile ad? I remember him saying he only did ads for things he believed in not shitty mobile games advertised with fake gameplay.

Here's a good reddit post basically summing up my thoughts


HEY GUYS TRY OUT HONEY and I just donated 50k to the ADL please don't notice

oh boy doesn't look like that mod is trustworthy at all

This really upsets me:

1: I hope Pewds isn’t being blackmailed in any way
2: It’s disappointing to see one of us turn around and help the literal enemy
3: This whole thing feels as creepy af

I’m just going off what I know for sure, and that’s that Pewds made the donation, and also some comments about moving past things. I’m not going to turn against someone I’ve enjoyed so much, but I feel really disappointed in this turn of events.

You can be popular, or you can stand for something, and the world really needs the latter, feeling like it’s on a precipice. I always thought Pewdiepie was the latter kind of guy.

Ok. I feel like there could've been a better charity instead of one that tries to censor people. Also doesn't explain why he was acting so weird in the video.

Honestly I think Felix is simply tired of all the hate surrounding him and just want to make money for now on. His shift from shitposting to minecraft is already a good sign of that.

And i can't judge him! He is almost 30,married and spent the last 10 years making videos almost every day. Also, in the last two years he had to deal with a lot of negativity, restricted monetization,lost parterships and even got his name attached to a fucking mass shooting.

It's all so tiresome.

He said in one of his recent videos that monetization is finally good and i can understand if he just want to play the game and not be a martyr anymore.

The success of his Minecraft revival turned him a generic kiddie let's play channel (With big revenue). Can't really blame him for trying to clean his image.

But I really miss his "don't care anymore" phase. It was so much more entertaining.
