YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg spoke out about Jenna Marbles quitting YouTube in a lengthy rant on June 26, claiming he’s “disappointed” with the internet for “bullying” her off the Google-owned platform.

On June 25, Marbles uploaded a tearful 11-minute video where she addressed controversy surrounding older content uploaded in 2011. She apologized for racist behavior she’d exhibited in the past, and explained that it was “inexcusable” – despite it not being her intention at the time to offend anybody. The 33-year-old ended her apology by stating that she was “going to move on from [the] channel for now.”

Fans of the comedian were stunned over her decision to leave, with many – including PewDiePie – taking the stance that she was seemingly pressured into leaving the platform over her past videos, and that her past behavior doesn’t reflect who she is now. The Swedish personality shared his thoughts on his YouTube Community Page to air how “disappointed” he was over the situation.

PewDiePie speaks out about Jenna Marbles

On June 26, a day after Marbles uploaded her video, PewDiePie shared his thoughts on what happened in a lengthy text post rant. “Jenna Marbles was one of the most genuinely good people on this platform and now she gets bullied off the site by mistakes that happened 8-10 years ago.. Who cares?” he wrote.

“These actions reflect in no way who she is and the content she makes today, anyone who watches her can see that,” he continued, before going on to state that “we all have problems in our past” and “no one in the world is perfect.”

“This site will be filled with nothing but douchetubers who don’t care, while the people who do, gets pushed out. So disappointed with the internet and how far things have gotten,” he finished.

The Swede’s rant on Jenna Marbles’ shock exit from YouTube.

Earlier on the same day, the 30-year-old shared similar sentiments in his own YouTube video, and addressed online drama and his thoughts on the topic.

“It’s like someone new is getting cancelled every day today,” he said. “…Small things seem to be so big online. And it makes me feel like people are just miserable. It makes me feel bad. I feel like if I could change one thing, it would be for people to just be happier. Because then people wouldn’t get so worked up over these insignificant things all the time.”

He also talked about his own experience with having to use disclaimers for jokes in his content. “I do. People clearly take jokes out context as weapons against them. Thats the world we live in. It is what it is.”

(Topics start at 12:01, 13:01, and 14:06.)

While PewDiePie is usually sarcastic in his humor, it appears as though Jenna Marbles’ sudden exit from the platform really rubbed the Swede the wrong way in order to spur such a passionate post about the topic on his Community Page.

It is currently unknown whether the YouTube comedian will be returning to the platform in the future. She stated that she “needs to be done” with her channel “for now, or maybe forever.”

Charli D’Amelio defends Addison Rae, tells TikTok haters to “shut up”

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has had enough of internet critics, telling trolls to buzz off in a pointed Instagram Live broadcast where she defended names like Addison Rae against body-shaming users.

It’s no secret that the internet can be a brutal place. The advent of social media has allowed people from all over the world to connect with one another, for better or for worse — and not everyone has a positive outlook on life.

From the average Instagram user to social media stars like Addison Rae, it seems that no one is above criticism from internet trolls, causing some users to completely lock down their accounts while others have learned to handle the negativity with a swift block.

Not everyone can drown out the negativity, though, especially if there’s a lot of it, and it seems that Charli D’Amelio has taken notice of quite a few negative comments about her fellow TikTokers.

“Quite honestly, I know I look good,” Charli said while doing her makeup in an October Instagram Live. “Addison should know she looks good. Maddie should know she looks good. Cynthia should know she looks good. Like, shut up!”

“Keep it to yourself!” she continued.

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. People say like, such rude things to like, Sissy Sheridan. Sissy is so beautiful. Literally one of the most beautiful girls I know. You’re mad that she doesn’t cuss? How is that affecting you?”

“Even like, Bella Poarch,” the TikTok star added. “She uses the face zoom filter, and she looks good doing it. You guys gave her the likes. Don’t go back on what you said, because she has a lot of followers.”

It’s no secret that the celebs she mentioned have been getting quite a lot of backlash lately; from Bella Poarch being accused of acting childlike on purpose to trolls body-shaming Addison Rae’s curves, it looks like Charli has simply had enough of the negativity.

She’s not wrong for pointing it out, either. Reports state that the current global health crisis has seen a dramatic rise in cyberbullying, and a quick look at comments on TikTok show that this isn’t a mistruth.

In these times, it’s always good to remember Bill and Ted’s classic saying: “Be excellent to each other.”
