In his October 4 Minecraft episode, YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg teamed up with Sean ‘Jacksepticeye McLoughlin where a Marvel joke led to them installing an Infinity Gauntlet mod – but their quest to bring balance to the sandbox title went south. 

PewDiePie has started to branch out with his Minecraft series ever since defeating the sandbox game’s final boss, and now the Swede has began experimenting with mods.

During his latest co-op session with fellow YouTube star Jacksepticye, the duo decided to install a Marvel mod that gave them the ability to create the Infinity Gauntlet from the wildly popular Avengers films, but things went wrong when the Thanos’ weapon failed to deliver.

Bringing balance to Minecraft

The two were out adventuring, when the Irish YouTube star joked “you’re horse might have broken ankles by the time it gets here” as their trip left injuries to their mounts. Pewds shot back “that’s fine, you’rs too” which caused Jakesepticye to laugh, before he quipped “as long as it’s balanced, Thanos will be happy”.

The exchange then gave the Irish gamer a great idea. “We should make Thanos in Minecraft! Build a giant gauntlet!” he exclaimed. Pewds then informed him that there was in fact a mod for it.

PewDiePie then installed the mod and was excited as his character equipped the gauntlet, before he started to question what it actually could do. “Why can’t I Thanos you, Jack?” he asked, as he clicked the Irish YouTuber, and nothing happened.

He then tried to use it on a Creeper before the enemy blew up on the Swede, killing him. After respawning the YouTube king figured out what its powers were. “Give me the Gauntlet, I’ll show you what it does. It’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen.This is so disappointing!” he said.

Pewds walked up to an enemy and pointed his cursor at his head, and instead of making him disappear like the movies, it changed into a purple rendition of the Marvel villain, turning Minecraft enemies into little versions of Thanos.

This caused Jacksepticeye to burst into laughter. “This is so stupid! He looks like a little grape man,” he exclaimed as the Gauntlet failed to live up to expectations

Minecraft collaborations

The YouTube king continues to dominate on the video hosting platform with his Minecraft series, as he’s quickly blown past 100 million subscribers – a milestone he reached on August 25.

However, after beating the vanilla version of the sandbox game, his videos have opened up to mods and crazy experiments in the sandbox title, which he often does when collaborating with other personalities.

Jacksepticeye is also one of the most popular gamers on YouTube, as his friendship with PewDiePie goes back to 2013 when the Swede did a shout-out contest which the Irish gamer won. The brief mention kickstarted his channel, and the two have become close friends since.

As of the time of this article, PewDiePie is at 101 million subscribers and is swiftly on track to break 102 million. His close friend and collaborator is at 22.8 million subscribers.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
