YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has predicted a major development for online streaming platform Twitch, as stated in an episode of his ‘Pew News’ series on November 23.

The YouTuber covered a story concerning Twitch streamer ‘Alinity,’ who accidentally opened her Gmail inbox during a live broadcast on November 21 – revealing an email from an individual seeking to buy her underwear.

The story quickly gained massive traction, with even the likes of Drama Alert host KEEMSTAR weighing in on the debacle, claiming that Alinity would have been banned “years ago” if she were a man.

PewDiePie appeared to make fun of KEEM’s comment, but likewise took issue with the way Twitch is being run, predicting an upcoming shift in the “streaming bubble.”

“I feel like, the way Twitch is running their website, something is about to… there’s a bubble waiting to be broken,” he stated.

Although Alinity had issued a copy strike against PewDiePie in May for using a clip of her stream in one of his videos (as well as calling her a “Twitch thot”), Pewds didn’t feel that Alinity ought to be banned for her recent blunder, instead choosing to comment on the platform as a whole.

Since the accidental leak, Alinity admitted that she had sold a bra to the interested party back in her college years, and claimed that it was something she would “never do again.” However, KEEMSTAR took issue with the incident, calling out Twitch for its alleged unequal treatment between the sexes and citing his previous ban for simply arguing with another female streamer.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
