Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is a noted advocate for YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, after supporting him during his heated battle with Bollywood label T-Series - but Kjellberg is putting MrBeast on the spot, despite his hard work.
PewDiePie published a Tweet on May 24 that humorously called out MrBeast for not being subscribed to his subreddit, which Kjellberg uses for such shows as ‘Meme Review’ and ‘LWIAY.’
The Tweet in question included a series of screenshots MrBeast had taken of the subreddit, which implored him to plant 20 million trees in honor of his 20 million subscriber milestone.
However, that wasn’t the only thing PewDiePie took note of - the YouTube king noticed that MrBeast wasn’t a member of his subreddit, calling him out in the Tweet, writing, “BRUH.”
MrBeast quickly explained the matter in a reply, claiming that he browses Reddit without being signed into his account.
“I use reddit not signed in,” he wrote. “I HAVE NOT FORSAKEN YOU, FATHER!”

MrBeast went on to take the joke even further, retweeting PewDiePie’s Tweet with the caption, “I’d like to publicly apologize to all those who I hurt thru my actions. I will strive to get better.”

This is far from MrBeast’s first interaction with Kjellberg; in fact, MrBeast even made an appearance on an episode of ‘Meme Review’ as a host on March 5, just as PewDiePie’s battle with T-Series was coming to a head.
MrBeast famously bought out multiple billboards across his hometown in an effort to advertise Kjellberg’s channel just as their war was heating up, going on to orchestrate a last-ditch effort to help the Swede by taking his squad to the 2019 Super Bowl, where they wore a series of shirts on camera that read, “Subscribe to PewDiePie.”
Despite PewDiePie’s battle with T-Series coming to an unsatisfactory end, MrBeast is still rooting for the YouTube king, even sacrificing his own video to keep Kjellberg’s YouTube Rewind 2018 rendition as the most liked non-music video on YouTube.
While MrBeast’s stunts in honor of PewDiePie have gained him a broad audience across the net, the YouTuber is popular in his own right, due to his viral videos giving away insane amounts of cash or participating in extreme challenges.
