YouTuber Marzia has suffered a gruesome injury while on her second honeymoon with husband and YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg, after a knife accident.

The newly-weds are enjoying a trip to Japan, the country where they initially got engaged, but things got off to a poor start after an accident left Marzia with a nasty injury.

Having purchased a knife, the Italian was attempting to remove it from it’s packaging when it fell and landed with the pointed edge in her toe.

Posting the image on her Instagram story (though she spared fans any gruesome pictures of the injury itself), her followers were immediately concerned, worried the damage to her foot could impact the ability to travel during their trip.

Marzia responded to fans’ concerns, explaining: “Thank you all for worrying about the toe. It is a very dark purple color near the cut, so it’s not looking pretty BUT I’ve been able to walk all day so I assume it’s not that serious. I’m hoping it will heal on its own.”

As questions continued to pour in about the state of her injury, Marzia gave a further update on October 5, drawing another image and saying that “it’s definitely getting better and I’m totally fine, so no need to worry.”

It looks like Marzia’s toe is healing well – at least according to her expert drawing.

Their trip clearly isn’t being affected terribly either, as both PewDiePie and Marzia have posted about how much they are enjoying seeing Tokyo, watching a fireworks display on October 5.

PewDiePie’s time away hasn’t stopped him remaining dedicated to his YouTube channel though, with daily videos still being posted, likely by way of scheduled uploads.

He remains the only individual YouTuber to surpass 100 million subscribers, a feat he managed just shortly after he and Marzia tied the knot in August.


Twitch bans Ryan Haywood after disgraced Rooster Teeth star attempts comeback

Twitch has banned the account of former Rooster Teeth personality Ryan Haywood, months after he was let go from the company in light of predatory allegations.

The disgraced Achievement Hunter will no longer be able to interact with the gaming community through Twitch. Haywood’s personal account by the name of ‘SortaMaliciousGaming’ has been permanently banned from the platform.

Following more than a dozen allegations against him, Haywood was dropped from Rooster Teeth back in October 2020. A few weeks of silence had gone by before he returned to the internet through Twitch at the start of the new year.

Naturally, it didn’t take long for the community to catch on with #BanRyanHaywood trending across Twitter shortly after.

Twitch answered on January 20, finally erasing his presence on the site.

Haywood took to the streaming platform to share a lengthy message with his remaining followers. “I wanted to say thank you to all of you who are still subscribed,” he said. “I’ve spent the last few months figuring out what the next steps are. Through all of it, having your support has been an incredible help.”

Immediately, former colleagues and the greater Rooster Teeth audience latched onto the statement, slamming Twitch for allowing him a voice on the platform. 

Haywood had previously used social media to groom multiple fans over a number of years. Many had even engaged in intimate relations while underage. “I made mistakes and will be leaving RT to focus on rebuilding my family and life,” he said on Twitter on October 6. “I’m sorry to anyone I’ve hurt.”

As a result of his infidelity and predatory behavior, Haywood’s presence has since been wiped from years of Rooster Teeth content. Countless colleagues of his also took to social media to show support for the community.

“I’ll keep you updated on what’s going on,” Haywood added in his message on Twitch prior to the ban, implying that it would be his primary form of communication moving forward into 2021. 

He now has no means of which to publicly engage with the community online. His privileges across Twitter, YouTube, and now Twitch have all been revoked.
