Popular YouTuber and host of ‘DramaAlert’ Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem has shared his disapproval of the Kids’ Choice Awards – and their decision to crown Alia ‘SSSniperWolf’ Shelesh as ‘Favorite Gamer’ of 2019. 

SSSniperWolf is one of the largest female YouTubers on the platform, amassing just under 15 million subscribers in the 6 years since her channel was created. However, she has been no stranger to controversy – often accused of faking gameplays.

Keem references these alleged fake gameplays in a series of tweets which state that the American YouTuber was a poor choice for the award, and that it would have been much more deserved for Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who has found incredible fame over the past year playing Fortnite.

Keemstar/YoutubeKeem often gives his opinion on topical issues during his news show, DramaAlert.

Keem said that the Kids’ Choice Awards are “100% BS” and that they’re “based on literally nothing.” He finishes his tweet by saying award shows of this nature mean nothing and are decided by people who do not have sufficient knowledge to make decisions about winners.

At the time of writing the tweet stands at over 22,000 likes, showing that a considerable amount of the community agree with Keem’s assessment of the situation. Ninja himself replied, with a tongue-in-cheek smiley face, suggesting he’s also unimpressed with SSSniperWolf’s victory.

A second tweet from Keem addresses the allegations of faking gameplays. It states that: “Sssniperwolf has been exposed for years for not getting her own gameplay. Her boyfriend would get the gameplays then she would just commentate over them like it was hers.”

He finishes the tweet by saying that her winning the award is “insulting” to gaming, making clear the extent to which he thinks she does not deserve it.

The second tweet has over 5,000 likes, once again suggesting that a lot of the community is on his side.

SSSniperWolf tweeted a video of her ‘flossing’ in celebration, as well as saying that she loves to see people mad – in response to a tweet which defended giving her the award.

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.
