PewDiePie mocks Jake Paul's petition to end cyberbullying over beef with Cody Ko

YouTube star Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg canceled Jake Paul as a result of his cyberbullying beef with fellow YouTuber Cody Ko.

Cody Ko is no stranger to making fun of the Paul brothers, something that hasn’t sit well with Jake Paul, as he then created a video responding to that and called for all of the cyberbullying to stop.

PewDiePie decided to throw himself into the mix by watching Jake Paul’s response video and pretty much destroying him along the way.

It’s a roast

“Jake Paul is treating it like he just gave away his address to someone,” PewDiePie said in response to Jake taking Cody’s criticism of dressing up like a Minion. “Oh wait, you did that Jake, sorry!”

PewDiePie came out with a nearly 22-minute video picking apart Jake Paul’s video, which can be seen below, bit by bit and bringing up elements of his past.

Jake Paul called out the negativity of various YouTube channels in his video, which PewDiePie also discussed.

“I’ll explain what Jake Paul’s cave brain is trying to say here,” he said. “There are channels dedicated purely to criticize people. These channels clearly have to make a living giving their audience what they want. They nitpick things that aren’t that big of a deal.”

He explains that a video criticizing the “overpriced” merch of someone can easily be blown out of proportion by one of these channels. However, most of Pewds’ issues lie with the fact Jake Paul even made this video in the first place.

With nearly everything Jake Paul says, PewDiePie quickly shuts him down by mocking him. Paul mentioned how Cody Ko must be sad on the inside for him to be making these videos.

“I can only imagine how much Cody Ko has to deal with every day for being such a savage only,” PewDiePie joked.

It’s very clear that PewDiePie is not a fan of Jake Paul, but we probably knew that before this video came out.


Valkyrae explains why she took a break from YouTube streaming

Streamer Valkyrae has explained why she took a break from YouTube streaming in her latest live on the platform.

Having just celebrated her 29th birthday, Valkyrae (real name Rachel Hofstetter) has shown no signs of slowing down in recent years, and her move from Twitch to YouTube at the start of 2020 has proven to be an incredible change for both herself and the YouTube streaming platform.

Just last week, Valkyrae took over from Pokimane as the most-watched female streamer with her 23.6m hours watched coming out above Pokimane’s 23.3m. But even the most successful creators struggle and need breaks.

Valkyrae recently took a week-long break from streaming, leading many to ponder what the reason might be.

Valkyrae has become a huge name in the streaming world.

In her latest stream on Sunday, January 17, Valkyrae explained that she took a break because she had already fulfilled her contracted hours for streaming.

She said, “I signed a contract with YouTube a year ago and as some of you didn’t know and some of you did learn later, I have streaming hours to fulfill and I owe 100 hours a month, but I went a little crazy and streamed too much last year which is very bad for my health.”

She said that the break was largely for the sake of both her mental and physical health, adding, “I turned 29 on January 8… it’s probably a good time to turn into an adult so I’m going to do that by probably changing my lifestyle a lot.”

She explained that she has problems with her gut-health and that she thinks she has an auto-immune skin disease, so as a result she’ll be changing up her diet and cooking more often.

Valkyrae took a break from social media in May last year for mental health reasons, and so she could take time away to focus on herself and her creativity.

In the future, Valkyrae’s fans can expect more cooking content as she focuses on changing up her lifestyle, she said, but that she will only stream her required hours rather than going overboard as she did in 2020.
