Popular YouTubers KSI and Deji Olatunji are caught in the middle of a bitter feud, once again, with Deji accusing his older brother of physical abuse and even threatening legal action – but YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is finding it hard to sympathize with the younger sibling.

PewDiePie weighed in on the matter during an episode of ‘Pew News’ on June 7, where he applauded KSI’s response to the drama, who had debunked and given context for all of Deji’s claims in an hour and twenty-minute-long video on June 3.

“Maybe Deji had some points that were fair, maybe KSI wasn’t a great brother, or whatever, but I think KSI did a really good job explaining his side of the situation,” Kjellberg said of the issue.

The Swede went on to criticize Deji for placing midroll ads throughout his video accusing KSI of abuse, claiming that it was difficult for him to take his side when his upload directly followed the highly publicized drama surrounding beauty YouTubers James Charles and Tati Westbrook.

“I gotta say, Deji’s video has midrolls on it,” PewDiePie continued. “…It’s kind of hard to side with someone who puts that perspective on it. Especially when KSI made a lot of good points.”

Kjellberg likewise commented on Logan Paul’s copyright strike on KSI’s response video, the revenue from which KSI claimed would benefit suicide charities.

While PewDiePie laughingly mocked Paul for claiming the video, he noted that his claim had ultimately been an accident, and called the entire debacle “dumb.”

Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul has since deleted this Tweet mocking KSI after claiming his video reply to Deji, later admitting that he’d “jumped the gun.”

KSI and Deji’s latest feud cropped up after Deji relisted his diss track against his older brother, which he’d removed in an attempt to end their previous feud in early 2019.

KSI then claimed that he was washing his hands of his little brother, who came forward with allegations of physical and mental abuse, later following up with a second video threatening legal action against his older brother should he take the issue any further.

The eldest sibling then released a long video debunking Deji’s claims despite his threats of a lawsuit, with Deji ultimately conceding to handle the matter in private.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
