YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg hit out at Jake Paul after the content creator was criminally charged by police in Scottsdale, Arizona on June 4. The Swedish star explained why the personality should have known his actions would lead to trouble.

On May 30, content creator Jake Paul received overwhelming backlash after he uploaded video of him being present during looting and rioting in a mall in Arizona. A week later, police officially charged him for “trespassing” and “unlawful assembly.”

During his June 7 episode of Last Week I Asked You, YouTube’s top creator PewDiePie weighed in on the personality’s troubles. The Swede reacted to memes that were critical of the social media influencer, and explained why he “should know better.”

The YouTuber was reacting to fan submissions over on the r/Pewdiepiesubmissions subreddit, when he came across a meme that claimed Jake Paul had been arrested. “No, he did not go to jail. But he will get charged,” he clarified to his viewers.

The popular entertainer then explained why Paul’s actions are a reminder that being present during a crime can get you into trouble. “I think this is a great example of even if you are a part of a group that’s doing something illegal, you are complicit by just being there,” he said.

He was critical of the content creator, stating, “Jake Paul should really know better.” Later on in the video, another fan compared Paul’s alleged looting scandal as being opposite of popular fictional character Robin Hood. Laughing, the 30-year-old joked, “No, he’s just an idiot. That’s it.”

Hilariously another fan submission paired the Jake Paul news with the Avengers Endgame scene where Spiderman tells Iron Man “we won, Mr Stark” which caused the Swede to break into laughter.

This isn’t the first time a major personality has been critical of the Team 10 creator. Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins slammed Paul during his June 4 broadcast, calling his video “disgusting.”

So far, the Arizona police department has only filed criminal charges against the 23-year-old, although that hasn’t stopped the internet from making memes about it.

PewDiePie was also kidding around as his humor is laced with sarcasm. Whether reacting to current events or playing games, his content has never been in more demand as he continues to pull in millions of views an upload.

Like most popular streamers, Shroud has been getting stuck into the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands grind, but although he’s enjoyed it so far, he said he feels like the game is “less immersive” than it used to be.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has taken the world by storm ever since it launched on November 23. Players have been hopping back into Azeroth to take the reigns of their characters once again.

Popular streamers like Mike ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek have been getting stuck into the grind too. He’s been very open about how much he loves the game and has streamed hours upon hours of World of Warcraft Classic. He even said he was willing to lose viewers to stream it.

Shroud has thoroughly enjoyed playing World of Warcraft for many years now.

However, Shroud isn’t blinded by his love and adoration for the game. He still has some criticism for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and MMORPGs in general, and he mentioned them in his latest stream.

“I feel like [MMORPG’s] and WoW, in general, have transcended into something completely different,” he said. “In the past, you [played] because you were immersed. You were leveling up your character. You were getting new items. It felt good to be more powerful and do better things.”

“Now I feel like WoW is like play with friends and kill some shit,” he said. “That feeling of immersion and truly having an impact on the world and your character feeling there has kind of nullified.”

“When I played vanilla WoW in 2005, I was 11 years old, and it felt amazing,” he said. “It felt incredible. It felt like I was in my own realm. I was in my own world. Now it doesn’t feel like that. That feeling is gone.

The relevant part of the video starts at 2:00.

It’s a sentiment that others have echoed time and time again. The consensus is that MMORPGs have been streamlined throughout the years.

However, it hasn’t stopped millions of players, including Shroud, from enjoying World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. 

Plus, despite his criticism, he thinks now is the “best time” for new players to start playing the game because the new leveling process is “really cool.”
