David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s most popular personalities, best known for his chaotic, high-energy vlogs — but it’s not his antics with the “vlog squad” that have fans scratching their heads, this time.

Boasting over 16 million YouTube subscribers, Dobrik is considered one of the most well-known online entertainers to date, having such high-profile connections as Justin Bieber, Howie Mandell and even Kylie Jenner.

While he may have some serious A-list clout, that isn’t stopping fans from throwing some humorous shade toward the internet star, thanks to his bizarre method of eating citrus fruits.

David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s biggest stars, known for his fast-paced antics with the “vlog squad” – and now, also for his weird way of eating oranges.

In an Instagram post earlier this week, Dobrik showed off his special way of eating an orange; rather than taking off the peel or even slicing the fruit into sections, the star bit into it like an apple.

“Does the way I bite into this orange make you angry?” he captioned the video, as though poking fun at those who have already undoubtedly expressed their distain at his unique citrus-eating habits.

As evidenced by the responses on social media, many fans are, indeed, “angry,” with quite a few viewers expressing good-natured disdain and shock over Dobrik’s Instagram story.

“What kind of **king psychopath eats an orange like that?!?!” one fan Tweeted in response to the matter.

“I really used to like David Dobrik, but then he posted the video of him eating an orange,” another quipped.

“David Dobrik bites into his oranges like an apple… he better Venmo me $1,000 before i call the authorities,” yet another wrote.

However, it seems that Dobrik’s video has validated quite a few orange-eaters, who also bite into their favorite citrus fruits like complete savages.

“I honestly eat my oranges that way too, and I’ve been embarrassed to tell anyone until now,” one fan joked. “Thank you for being brave enough to share your truth.”

“I knew I wasn’t the only one who bit into their oranges,” another admitted.

While it’s unclear if this is David’s normal method for eating oranges or if he was merely trolling, it’s safe to say that YouTube’s biggest vlogger got the internet talking — despite taking a lengthy hiatus from uploading regular videos.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
