Markiplier shares “unbelievable” story of how he broke his foot

YouTube star Mark ‘Markiplier’ Fischbach took to Twitter on February 21 to share that he “might have” broken his foot — and later confirmed the news in a hilarious story that sparked a huge outpouring of fan support.

When it comes to pain and injuries, Markiplier is no newbie; the internet sensation has “cracked open” his skull playing on the stairs as a kid, broken his forearm in two places, suffered from severe appendicitis, and even had a “fist-sized” tumor removed from his adrenal gland around that same time (need we mention the epidural he received for the pain?).

In fact, thanks to all his experiences, Mark created an entire video detailing his own views on pain, which is significantly skewed from the average person’s perception of less-than-savory physical sensations.

Thus, when he broke the news that he’d broken his foot on February 21, his reaction to the issue was less than dramatic. In a humorous series of Tweets, Mark merely wrote: “Might’ve broken my foot,” followed up by, “Yeah it’s broke.”

Knowing that his fanbase would be worried, the YouTuber went live shortly after leaving the hospital, claiming that he’d suffered a Jones Fracture.

Jones Fractures are one of the more common foot injuries out there, affecting the bone on the outer side of the foot. Despite his high pain tolerance, though, Markiplier was very vocal about how much discomfort he was in.

After a good 10 minutes of joking with his audience, Mark finally spilled the beans as to how he’d broken his foot: the YouTuber claimed that he was on a walk with his dog, Chica, when he’d accidentally caught his foot in a storm drain and rolled his ankle, subsequently breaking the outer bone.

“You never know when danger is lurking around at every corner!” he laughed. “Those storm drains… they sneak up on you!”

This is far from the first time Mark has had to receive serious medical care during his YouTube career; the influencer was sent to the ER due to an intestinal blockage in December 2020, and had also been hospitalized for another painful issue five years prior.

Thankfully, it seems that the internet’s favorite gamer has received ample “boo boo kisses” from his fans to last him a lifetime and is recovering as best he can.

YouTube star and ‘imPaulsive’ co-host Mike Majlak has finally revealed the reason behind his seemingly permanent breakup with ex-girlfriend Lana after the two unexpectedly parted ways less than a week ago.

Mike Majlak has become quite the YouTube sensation over the past few years; starting his own successful series ‘The Night Shift,’ he has also garnered a solid online following due to co-hosting Logan Paul’s ‘imPaulsive’ podcast, and often appears in the influencer’s vlogs.

However, he’s also become a subject of interest for viewers across the net due to his off-again, on-again relationship with now ex-girlfriend Lana, who — funnily enough — Logan “gifted” to Majlak as a prank birthday gift in early 2020.

After breaking up in late October, the two got back together again… but it seems that a romance is not in the cards for these two stars, as news broke in February 2021 that the two had officially parted ways.

Mike Majlak and Lana originally got together early last year, but have now officially called it quits.

While Mike was adamant that he would not make a stereotypical “break up video” discussing the topic, he did open up about the breakup on a February 23 episode of ‘imPaulsive,’ explaining what exactly lead to their split (and no, it wasn’t because he “hit on” a fellow player in GTA, as many fans believed).

“I’ve talked to people about it, and they always say, ‘Stick through the fights,’” he began. “But when those fights become the mainstay, when those fights become the norm for months on end, and the relationship starts to take more energy from you than it provides for your life, and you don’t see an end in sight for either person… it’s the time that you have to start thinking about calling it quits.”

Lana said she and Mike will not get back together this time around.

“I think we both kind of made a mutual decision that, listen, we’re just not able to make this work. …the thing that really ended up being the breaker was just a more normal thing, just a shared incompatibility.”

Despite the differences between them, Mike wishes nothing but the best for Lana in the future, and confirmed that this would be the last time he publicly speaks about the breakup for the foreseeable future.
