During a July 6 stream with Dr. K, Twitch star Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollon claimed that her copyright strike against YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg happened by mistake. The incident sparked drama between the two back in 2018. 

Drama between the two personalities broke out in 2018 when Alinity appeared to issue a copyright strike against PewDiePie’s YouTube channel. At the time, she was offended by the Swede’s joke about “Twitch thots” and called him out in front of her viewers.

However during her latest broadcast, the 32-year old sat down for a live talk with popular streamer Dr. K. During the emotional conversation in which she opened up about internet hate, she also revealed how the claim against Pewds’ video was an “accident.”

Alinity claims she didn’t copyright strike PewDiePie

During her sit down with the Twitch personality, Alinity revealed how much internet hate for her past mistakes has impacted her. The talk came after her breakdown during a stream on July 2 for similar reasons.

During the discussion, the star opened up about her drama between PewDiePie in 2018. “There were compilations of myself… I got up and yelled at my roommate “Oh, can we copystrike PewDiePie?!”… It was just like for show.”

The streamer then claimed that “it was just, like, a joke” and that she wasn’t being serious. “I was trying to play it up for the stream. But I didn’t actually copystrike his video. I didn’t do it. It was the company that was working for me, [they] accidentally and coincidentally put a strike on the video.”

The Twitch star also explained that the company she used to work with issued a statement 0ver the incident, and stated that it was an employee who made the strike and not her. “But nobody paid attention to that! Everybody is like “she’s evil, she’s abusing the law!” she exclaimed.

Alinity then revealed that she got a ton of backlash for the situation, and that viewers started to dig through her old content to find any type of mistake she might have made.

Despite past controversy, Alinity has seen a wave of support from the streaming community after she opened up about her mental health. On July 4, she promised to “be better” in the future in a post on social media.

At the time of writing, PewDiePie has yet to respond to her explanation. However, it is likely the Swede will give his thoughts in a future reaction video.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew McConaughey on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
