The Social Blade pages for both Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg and Indian Bollywood production company T-Series have been hilariously altered following the release of the Swede’s latest diss track, on YouTubeCongratulations.

PewDiePie and T-Series have been embroiled in a bitter feud since September 2018, with the channels jostling for position as the most subscribed YouTube channel in the world.

Fans of both channels have been heavily invested in the battle for YouTube supremacy, and it appears some have taken the rivalry to heart, hacking both pages in an attempt to show their support for both T-Series and PewDiePie.  While T-Series had finally overhauled the YouTube star, Kjellberg has somehow managed to find himself back ahead of the Bollywood entertainment juggernaut.

PewDiePie is back in front of T-Series as the most subscribed YouTube channel.

What happened to PewDiePie and T-Series’ Social Blade accounts?

First noticed on Monday, April 1, an unidentified user took control of both the PewDiePie and T-Series pages on Social Blade.

On the Swede’s page, the grade on the YouTuber’s page changed to “Clown,” while his Subscriber, Video View and Social Blade rank all sank to 99,999,999th. PewDiePie’s video views and subscribers for the last 30 days were also removed, while also editing his estimated monthly and yearly earnings to be one unit of a cryptocurrency named RavenCoin.

PewDiePie was labelled as a clown on Social Blade.

T-Series’ page was also changed, with their grade edited to “Boss,” ranking them at number one across all of Social Blade’s statistics with 10,000,000 video views and subscribers for the past 30 days.

T-Series’ Social Blade received a boost in statistics.

The pages continue to receive updates throughout the day, with PewDiePie currently being referred to as a “Champion,” a much nicer term that he was previously given. 

PewDiePie has since received a new title on his Social Blade page.

Who is editing PewDiePie and T-Series’ Social Blades and why?

It’s currently unknown who took control of the two pages on April 1, but many have surmised that it’s likely some sort of April Fools’ Day joke, either by Social Blade themselves or by fans of the two channels. 

Some believe that it may be hackers, in response to PewDiePie’s latest diss track ‘Congratulations’, which took jabs at the company who unseated him at the top of YouTube including claims that T-Series sold pirated songs.

Nobody has officially claimed responsibility for the changes yet, but we’ll be sure to update this article as more information becomes available.

UPDATE

Timothy Cole, a software engineer at Social Blade, has confirmed that the changes to profiles on Social Blade were done by members of the community since “updating everyone’s stats all the time is hard work” and they want to let “the community take over and help [them] keep everyone up to date.”

While the changes may only be temporary, they will still be yet another event to add into the ever-growing timeline of events throughout the PewDiePie vs T-Series saga.

Twitch streamer Jadeyanh terrified after stalker hijacks broadcast

Twitch star Jadeyanh had a terrifying night after a stalker kept harassing her by ordering food and even calling the police to her house.

The Germany-based streamer has quite an audience on the platform boasting over 200,000 followers. Now, it seems like one of them has begun to harass the Twitch personality.

During a November 23 broadcast, the streamer’s door began to ring prompting her to go answer it. While she didn’t take the camera with her, she soon revealed food she never ordered was delivered.

“Okay, I guess you’re watching,” she began, addressing her stalker directly. “I have a stalker and that person keeps ordering food for me. This is now the third time the person did that. Officially, please stop doing that.”

As it turns out, the individual had previously ordered 25 pizzas and had them delivered to Jadeyanh’s house.

“I’m shaking. I haven’t left my apartment in days because I’m terrified of doing my groceries,” she added. “So please, stop doing that. I feel like I’m in a prison.”

The streamer went on to explain that her neighbor, who is also a follower, sometimes opens up her packages without her consent. Now, she has another follower who is harassing her with food.

As she took a sip of her drink, her doorbell started ringing so she got up to answer it, but couldn’t bring herself to open the door because the light outside wasn’t on.

Eventually, right before Jadeyanh ended the stream, firefighters showed up at her door because someone told them there was a gas leak and then the police were coming.

“I don’t know who the f**k you are, but it’s your number you called them with and we’re going to get your f**king ass, you dumbass!” she exclaimed. “What the f**k is wrong with you? 25 pizzas! Twenty f**king five!”

At this point, Jadeyanh was so distressed she decided to end the stream, but soon after on Twitter revealed that since she did, six more deliveries have come for her.

“I was stalked when I was living with my grandparents. I’m being stalked in my new apartment after only 2 months of living here. I just want to rest. I’m so tired of everything,” she said in a follow-up tweet.

Hopefully, the police can get to the bottom of this so the streamer can finally start to feel safe again and not have her broadcasts ruined by stalkers.
