Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has taken a break from campaigning to keep his spot as the most subscribed channel on YouTube to campaign for something entirely different.

For the last few weeks, PewDiePie and T-Series have been locked in a heated battle for the top spot on YouTube, with many celebrities and other YouTubers rallying to his side to hold off the Indian record label.

Having just crossed over 74 million subscribers on December 4, PewDiePie is now rallying his own following to raise money for a special cause.

Instead of his usual daily video, PewDiePie is hosting a live charity stream on December 4 to raise money for Child Rights and You, an organization founded to help underprivileged children in India.

PewDiePie originally set up the GoFundMe for this campaign on December 3 along with the message of “9-year-olds helping 9-year-olds, let’s go!” referring to the fact that he often says his subscribers are all only nine years old.

CRY was established in 1979 by Rippan Kapur and has the singular goal of helping thousands of underprivileged Indian children who have been denied basic rights.

Further, the organization has three central principles to achieve its ultimate goal:

Identifying the root causes which force families and communities to allow children to be engagedinlabour.

Addressing these underlying issues by interacting with parents, community leaders and children’s collective.

Empowering communities to demand for employment schemes, food security and access to all government provisions.

Despite the GoFundMe only being active for less than 24 hours, he has already managed to blow past his initial goal of a £150,000 with over £163,000 at the time of writing.

With no end date set on the fundraiser, there’s truly no telling how much the King of YouTube will manage to raise once it’s all said and done!

Popular TikToker Larray is once again under fire in the aftermath of his diss track “Canceled” that set TikTok ablaze in early October.

22-year old Lawrence Merrit, who is part of TikTok’s Hype House, released a diss track that went viral for mentioning so many different creators and even debuted at No.81 on BillBoard’s Top 100 chart.

The lyrics ranged from lighthearted insults like rapping that Bryce Hall has “smelly balls” and James Charles has a big forehead, to more serious allegations. Tony Lopez in particular was called out after allegations that he has been sending Snapchats to underage fans.

Already this week, Larray has had to defend himself after some people had called him out for “normalizing child grooming by making jokes about it.”

The creator has also now claimed he reached to Tony Lopez’s alleged victims about “Tony Lopez caught a case” line the track. In comments on a TikTok video, he said, “I talked to the girls that were involved in the situations and they were perfectly fine with the lyrics and all laughed at it. The money made from the song was also donated.

“Please stop assuming things. Some of you don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes. Sorry for causing you problems. Wasn’t my intention. Just wanted to explain my points and most definitely shouldn’t have brought you into it.”

However, a user called Noah said, “I just texted them, not ONE of them was contacted by him, not one… Why are you lying”

One of the alleged victims, Celina, also added: “I never received a message from Larray I have never been in contact with larray neither have the other girls like wtf.”

Larray responded to criticism claiming he didn’t know some of Tony Lopez’s alleged victims. He said he’s trying to make it right: “I didn’t know or hear about her. I’ll most definitely be reaching out”

“Honestly I understand where I went wrong… no need to lie here just honestly didn’t know about the others. Should have looked into this more. My fault. Period.”

It looks as though Celina and Noah are appeased, for now, however, the fallout from “Canceled” could still continue to rock the TikTok world.
