YouTube’s biggest creator, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, is going after one of Twitch’s most popular streamers – Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys, who allegedly claimed the video of a smaller YouTuber on the grounds of copyright infringement.

PewDiePie discussed the issue in a video on January 11, where he noted that Pokimane had seemingly claimed the video of a YouTuber by the name of ‘Bowblax’ for using clips from her Twitter spat with KEEMSTAR in November 2018.

Pewds went on to note that YouTube’s algorithm may have boosted the video’s reach, ultimately escalating their Twitter beef – which PewDiePie speculated may have been the underlying reason for Pokimane’s strike.

“I can understand why you want to take down this video, because this selected thing blows up and becomes even bigger… but the problem here… is that you’re just drawing more attention to it,” PewDiePie said of the debacle. “The more you try to hide something, the more people are going to find out about it.”

PewDiePie likewise called out other popular streamers for their use of his own content, pointing out that gaming streamer ‘Shroud’ watched one of his videos during a live stream without adding any commentary.

“Hey, Shroud, hit subscribe, god dammit!” Pewds joked of the situation, noting that Shroud hadn’t subscribed to his channel after using his video in the broadcast.

Pokimane herself has vehemently denounced creators for using her content in their videos, as shown by YouTuber ‘Memology’ in his video discussing the ‘Bowblax’ copy strike on December 22, 2018.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
