The ongoing battle between PewDiePie and T-Series, to see who will come out on top in YouTube subscribers, has already gone outwith the internet realm, and now fans are marching the streets in support of the the Swedish YouTuber.

Since late October 2018, PewDiePie, his fans and the internet at large have been fighting to keep his spot as the number one most subscribed channel on YouTube.

T-Series, an Indian production company, are threatening that position, rapidly gaining subscribers at a pace that was expected to take over PewDiePie some months ago.

PewDiePie is still number one YouTube – but for how long?

Thanks to the support of other big name YouTubers and of course the fans, PewDiePie has managed to last much longer than expected, recently surpassing the 87 million subscriber mark first.

But, fans know that if momentum doesn’t keep up, then neither will PewDiePie, and so they are taking their efforts to the next level – with a march through the streets of Estonia.

On February 27, fans in Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia, held signs reading ‘Sub 2 Pewds”, and chanted PewDiePie’s name, before stopping at a city square.

It didn’t take long for the scenes in Tallinn to be shared online, and were even picked up in the February 27 ‘Drama Alert’ episode, from YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem.

PewDiePie himself retweeted the above video on Twitter, sharing it with his followers, obviously happy to see the people of Estonia doing their part.

Whether any passersby heeded the advice to subscribe to PewDiePie’s channel though, is another matter. As of February 28, his lead continues to diminish, only roughly 50,000 subscribers ahead of T-Series.


Pokimane slams Fedmyster’s second OfflineTV document: “Who asked?”

⁠Former Offline TV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan has released yet another lengthy Google Doc regarding the accusations of misconduct against him from OTV streamers, claiming he wants to “move on” from the drama.

Fedmyster was released from OTV in June 2020, after streamers LilyPichu, Yvonne and Pokimane levied accusations of harassment and inappropriate conduct against him.

Following these accusations, it seemed that all was resolved, with Fed having been removed from the group as a result; but a Google Doc seemingly leaked from the disgraced streamer in late November, which set off a chain reaction of outrage across the internet.

In the leaked November document, Fed appeared to accuse Pokimane of not being honest about their relationship to her viewers, and included screenshots of private text messages between them.

While Pokimane went on to respond to this document, saying he’d admitted his guilt, Fedmyster released yet another lengthy statement on December 1, claiming that he had actually never intended to release the original Doc. Instead, he explained that it had actually been a “form of therapy for myself, to address my concerns about the way Poki portrayed me in her stream.”

Fedmyster also purported that a formerly-trusted member of his community had leaked the document, leading to a “violent breach of my trust and against my wishes as I’ve been working hard to grow, heal, and move on from everything.”

The leaked document of Fedmyster’s in November had been titled “My Truth,” and mostly centered around his relationship with Pokimane.

The former streamer likewise addressed allegations that he had attempted to get Yvonne fired from the group due to her accusations against him. Denying that he had ever wanted her kicked from the crew, he claims that his concerns were due to her “lack of excitement and willingness to help with OfflineTV projects when it’s the only reason she’s in the house.”

He included several other explanations regarding his text messages with Pokimane, as well as his portrayal of Jodi toward Poki, who he apologized for, “painting her to Imane in such a poor light.”

Fedmyster ended his document by claiming that he wants “to move on and start a new chapter in my life,” hoping to put the issue to rest once and for all.

Pokimane has since responded to the document with a scathing tweet, writing, “Who asked lol.”

Fedmyster’s long document has been met with similar reactions from readers online, marking yet another episode of an ongoing incident between some of Twitch’s top content creators.
