YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s Roblox account has been banned after he live streamed himself playing the game in an attempt to stay ahead of Indian music label, T-Series.

At the time of writing, PewDiePie is hovering around a mere 56,000 subs above T-Series, so the content creator turned to desperate measures by streaming Roblox in an attempt to widen the gap.

Pewds put together a pretty popular game of Roblox as his server had more than 15,000 concurrent people playing alongside the YouTuber.

PewDiePiePewDiePie was banned shortly after livestreaming Roblox on his channel.

The ban was another entry in a list of apparently puzzling mod choices from the Roblox team, as fans voiced their confusion on the ban which led the devs to give a response.

“PewDiePie is no longer permitted on Roblox due to his content redirecting to unsafe and inappropriate sites/channels, as well as continued inappropriate behavior, that would not be permitted on Roblox, on his own channel,” a Roblox staff member said.

Although there is skepticism on the legitimacy of the user’s status as a staff member at Roblox, PewDiePie’s account, ‘pewdie123t32,’ and Roblox game server have been disabled.

Sources close to the Roblox Corporation has told YouTuber ‘greenlegocats123’ that the company “does not moderate people for off-site activity.” A rule that greenlegocats123 highlights as the reason why users believed to be pedophiles have kept their accounts, since their wrongdoings were done on other sites.

Unfortunately, Roblox fans are accustomed to questionable moderation decisions from the Roblox devs, but fans are speculating that this ban might be a bit more personal than others.

T-Series is drawing near to eclipsing the Pewd’s sub count, and it doesn’t seem like the Swedish YouTuber will get anymore support through Roblox content.

When will Corpse Husband merch be back in stock?

Fans of YouTube sensation Corpse Husband were left stunned after his first-ever merch drop sold out of all its products within about 10 minutes – but it seems another drop could be on its way soon.

While Corpse Husband had a following on YouTube before last year with his horror narration content, he shot to new heights of popularity in 2020 following his activity within the gaming community, particularly with indie hit Among Us.

He is known for not showing his face on camera, but that hasn’t stopped him from amassing an enormous fanbase which is now up to 6 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, and more on other platforms.

Thanks to popular demand, Corpse decided that he would create a merch store for his loyal fans, and teased the drop on Twitter in December. He warned “it is limited in quantity due to time frames and production constraints,” though he also said fans can be sure that the products will be great quality, “these aren’t just designs printed onto blank hoodies, it’s more complicated than that.”

Corpse Husband merch sells out

While Corpse mentioned he was nervous, it seems that he didn’t have anything to worry about, as when the merch was finally dropped on December 24 it sold out almost instantly.

Many fans said that it took only 10 minutes for the merch to sell out, with some making it all the way to checkout before finding out it was already gone.

35 minutes after the drop, Corpse took to Twitter to share his appreciation for his viewers. “I don’t even know what to say, thank you so much,” he wrote.

When will Corpse Husband merch be restocked?

Of course, many fans are now wondering when they next might be able to get their hands on some of the creative merch.

As Corpse mentioned prior to the drop, and as it is written on the site’s FAQ, this merch drop was actually a pre-sale, meaning “a new product that is available for sale before it’s in stock and ready to ship.”

In his voice memo before the launch, Corpse projected the delivery for this round of merch to be around late-January, and along with time frames and production constraints he mentioned, it’s unclear when the next drop will be.

At the time of writing, instead of displaying the sold-out products, the Corpse Husband merch site shows a message that reads ‘restock soon,’ which is great news for fans who missed out the first time around.

There isn’t anything to indicate any particular time frame for a new release, but the site allows you to enter your email address in order to be notified about upcoming launches.

The success of this first drop bodes well for the future, and there’s no doubt that fans will be gearing up to support their favorite creator, and hopefully beat the insane demand next time around.
