PewDiePie “terrified” in jump scare-filled return to Minecraft

Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has finally started to record himself playing Minecraft again for his YouTube channel, but his return to the game only reminded him just how disobedient and terrifying some of the creatures in the game can be. 

The popular internet personality, who has over 96 million subscribers on the platform at the time of writing, has a deep connection to Mojang’s title, with his original Minecraft series playing a huge part in the early days of his career as a content creator.  


Since his shock return to the sandbox game on June 22, Pewds seems to be working on a brand new farm. Yet, after making a few rookie mistakes, its creation has not been going as smoothly as many might have expected. 

YouTube: PewDiePiePewDiePie has finally started to play Minecraft again!

The area he has decided to build on boasts a number of different wild animals and natural resources available to it, as you would expect. However, the process of taming some of the nearby horses, chickens, and even sheep proved to be a difficult task for the Swede.  


After planting some seeds down by the water, next to what can only be described as a shack rather than a house – at this stage, at least – the rusty Minecraft player decided to use some wheat as bait, in order to attract some animals to his farm.

“What the hell? Listen, I got wheat man. What do horses like in Minecraft? Useless,” he said, before stopping himself from killing the animal. He moved onto chickens soon after, who also gave him a swift rejection.

Taming the sheep is where he experienced the most success. It was no easy task getting four hungry farm animals back to his shack and as the darkness descended upon the map, PewDiePie started to worry about their safety as they refused to squeeze through the door of his home. 

“Go in! I’m going to murder one of you,” Pewds said during the hilarious exchange. Moments later, the sheep obliged and felt so much at home that they started to breed. 

If viewers thought this was the biggest troll the streamer was going to face during the video, though, they’d be wrong as he was almost scared to death by a “terrifying” creeper in a nearby cave – as seen in the clip below. 


What his next Minecraft video has in store for his cult fanbase remains to be seen, but having found diamonds already near the farm location, it’s likely that this could be an area he continues to develop in the future. 

Hopefully, for him, there aren’t too many more creepers around to spoil the fun. 


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
