PewDiePie calls T-Series “pathetic” for latest tactic in YouTube sub battle

The YouTube subscriber battle of the century has taken another turn as PewDiePie called out T-Series for needing the help of celebrities to pass him.

The race has flipped multiple times recently, with T-Series maintaining a slight lead right before PewDiePie released the video.

He recorded a day early, which led to an awkward moment depending on when you watched the video. “I’m a day ahead now, so it would be very awkward while I make this video very happy if somehow T-Series passed out of nowhere,” said PewDiePie.

PewDiePie / YouTubePewDiePie is still (barely) holding on to his number one spot on YouTube.

T-Series did pass out of nowhere, but PewDiePie almost immediately fought back to regain the lead. For an up to the minute tracker, check out Dexerto’s PewDiePie vs T-Series hub.

PewDiePie called out T-Series for their use of celebrities in the battle, implying they are being paid.

“They are calling in the cavalry, all these Indian celebrities going, ‘hey I’m not paid to do this and I’m not paid to say this, but subscribe to T-Series,’” PewDiePie mocked.

He also showed the social media accounts of a few celebrities, where they promoted T-Series. “Look at this, ‘you can make India win,’ I don’t care! Pathetic, I barely relied on help from anyone.”

The YouTuber apparently did not intend to call out T-Series for this video and quickly went back to discussing memes.


TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
