In the aftermath of the James Charles vs Tati Westbrook controversy, Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg has accused Westbrook of copyright claiming, or even striking, videos about the drama.

In May 2019, two of the biggest makeup channels on YouTube locked horns, as James Charles (15 million subscribers) and Tati Westbrook (10 million subscribers) ended their friendship in a war of words.

The issue began when Tati was angered by Charles promoting a rival vitamin brand to her own, going on to accuse him of attempting to manipulate straight men by using his money and fame.

Tati / YoutubeTati and James Charles were once close friends.

The initial fallout saw Charles lose millions of subscribers almost overnight, but his response has since swung public opinion back in his favor, with Tati now facing the brunt of the backlash and losing subscribers.

Countless other creators covered the unfolding drama which captured the community’s attention, but it appears Tati is attempting to cover some of this up, filing copyright strikes on videos.

H3H3’s Ethan Klein had his own video claimed by Tati, which means ad revenue would be directed to her – which Klein highlighted given that she had made a point of not monetizing her own video.

In response to Klein’s tweet, PewDiePie linked to another, who showed evidence that Tati had in fact striked the video, removing it from YouTube entirely.

PewDiePie later tweeted to acknowledge that the strike on the video had been removed, and that it may have been made in error, rather than a deliberate attempt to suppress the content.

The video, by YouTuber WillyMacShow, is simply titled ‘Tati is worse than James Charles’, and is a commentary on the situation, although it does use clips from Tati’s video in making its argument.

The video is now available once again, perhaps due to the outrage its removal stirred on social media.

PewDiePie himself has made a number of videos on the drama, expressing in his latest that he hopes it is now over, and that both Tati and James Charles resolve the situation privately.

Tati has since deleted her original ‘BYE SISTER’ video, and has lost over 300,000 subscribers following Charles’ response video.

Borat set for first-ever Twitch stream alongside DrLupo: how to watch

Borat is one of the most iconic characters in the world, and now the Kazakh journalist is set to make his first appearance on Twitch tomorrow where he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo; here’s how to watch.

Borat is more than a national treasure to Kazakhstan. He’s a global icon and one of the funniest characters in the world.

Sacha Baron Cohen first slipped into the Borat persona back in the nineties. But although he appeared in several hilarious skits and cameos, he didn’t explode in popularity until 2006, when the feature-film ‘Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan’ released worldwide.

For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a mockumentary that revolves around unscripted real-life interactions. Sacha Baron Cohen pretends to be Borat, a journalist from Kazakhstan. He travels around the US to learn more about their culture.

But he purposefully presses their buttons and puts them in hilarious situations. He winds up people from all walks of life, which sometimes lands him in hot water.

Borat debuts the infamous ‘mankini’ at 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

Fortunately, we’re lucky enough to experience it all over again with the imminent release of the sequel, ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.’

Seth Rogen claims he has already seen it around six times and said he “can’t wait to watch it a seventh.” He described it as “crazy and wonderful” and believes it has “a few of the funniest scenes [he’s] ever seen in a movie.”

But that’s not all. To promote the movie, Twitch announced that Borat will make his first-ever appearance on their platform.

“For the first time ever, Kazakhstan’s biggest gamer will go live on Twitch,” the Amazon-owned platform announced on Oct. 20. “Very nice.” The best part is, he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo “in a battle for global supremacy.”

The stream goes live on October 20 at 3 pm PT. If you want to know where and how you can watch it, we’ve got you covered.

How to watch Borat stream on Twitch

  • First, you’ll obviously need to wait until the time is right. However, it’s a good idea to tune in a little earlier as most streamers kick things off with a ten-minute countdown.
  • Then, all you need to do is tune in to DrLupo’s Twitch channel, which can be found here.
  • From that point onwards, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

There has been no official word on what games they’ll play. DrLupo has been dabbling in a bit of everything lately, from 7 Days To Die and Escape From Tarkov to Genshin Impact. Maybe even a bit of Among Us might be on the cards.

Of course, it’ll depend on what games Borat has available. For all we know, he might be an absolute machine on Call of Duty: Warzone or League of Legends. But we’re not counting on it.

Either way, the stream is going to be a blast, and we can’t wait until it goes live.
