YouTube’s king of big-budget productions and social experiments, MrBeast, has a fairly dedicated fanbase – one of which paid to have the YouTuber’s logo tattooed on his leg.

Twitter user ‘Lefty’ tagged MrBeast in a Tweet on November 9, where he explained that he got the tattoo in honor of the YouTuber’s recent 10 million subscriber milestone. Attached to the post was a picture of the tattoo in question, placed on Lefty’s left thigh.

“Bruh for MrBeast hitting 10 million, I got a tattoo of his logo,” Lefty wrote. “It’s pretty crazy, but yo, you a real one.”

MrBeast saw the post and retweeted it, captioning it with a cheeky statement that compared the fan to one of Logan Paul’s infamous ‘Mavericks.’

“Good job, way to be a Maverick and pave your own path,” MrBeast wrote.

He wasn’t finished there; he Tweeted the picture again, insinuating that might even change his logo after the fan’s odd show of solidarity.

“This guy just got my logo tattooed on himself,” he continued. “It would be hilarious if I changed my logo tomorrow.”

Another fan responded to the post, saying that they preferred MrBeast’s old logo, a blue and white striped tiger.

“I like cheesecake, but you don’t see me talking about it,” MrBeast responded.

Lefty himself mentioned the tattoo in a recent video, where he appeared to take MrBeast’s trolling in good humor.

“Now everyone on Twitter has seen my hairy, white legs,” he joked.

MrBeast recently made waves for creating a city-wide ad campaign to promote PewDiePie, which helped the YouTuber surge past competitor channel T-Series.

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has revealed her plans for her Twitch VODs, after many creators on the platform, including some of the very biggest, were hit with DMCA takedown notifications over content in their back-catalog.

On October 21, some of the most popular names on the platform revealed that they have been getting these DMCA notifications, with people such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, and more finding that clips and VODs from past broadcasts have been deleted.

Obviously, in recent months there have been issues with streamers using copyrighted music on their stream, with many opting to stop so as to avoid any legal issues, but now their past content is being sifted through and checked, and the results are wiping out some of these creators’ favorite moments on stream.

While many streamers are doing all they can to keep their content on their Twitch channel available, Pokimane has revealed her plans for past VODs.

Pokimane has been streaming full-time since 2017, but may have to remove a lot of her content to avoid DMCA takedown requests.

After a viewer told Poki that fellow streamer Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid was to delete all of his VODs he’s built up over the years, she suggested that the same might be the case for her own channel.

“Lirik’s going to delete all his VODs? Well, guess what, it’s not just Lirik,” she told her viewers during her October 22 stream.

She continued: “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

Of course, there will be many top streamers considering that reality right now: that the content they’ve put out over however many years could simply be erased due to the music being played in the background.

Some content creators have already started taking down old VODs and deleting clips, and Pokimane may be just one of many that do so to avoid being banned from the platform altogether. We might see some creators start transferring their content to YouTube, but this would likely require a Herculean effort, too.

At the time of writing, Pokimane’s VODs haven’t been wiped from her channel.
