YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has been locked in an ongoing battle against Bollywood label T-Series for the most subscribers – but his #1 spot has been slowly slipping away.

PewDiePie vs. T-Series – will it ever end?

T-Series overtook the YouTuber by a whopping 30,000 subscribers on March 20, prompting many fans following their duel to speculate that Felix’s reign as the site’s top channel could be over for good.

Despite this grim development, PewDiePie managed to climb his way back up to the top – although he later admitted that he didn’t understand how T-Series had managed such a massive increase in subscribers.

“They were 30,000 ahead,” PewDiePie said of his comeback during an episode of ‘LWIAY’ on March 22. “I don’t know how we did it. I don’t understand how this works anymore.”

How T-Series almost beat PewDiePie

It was later discovered that T-Series’ massive jump in subs was due to a video that had gone viral on the channel.

The video in question is a trailer for the label’s new movie ‘PM Narendra Mori’, which skyrocketed to five million views in under 16 hours, and now has over 13 million views as of March 22.

PewDiePie was overtaken once more on March 22, although he predictably surpassed his nemesis and now sits over 12,000 subscribers over T-Series.

The YouTuber went on to thank his audience for their continued support in his battle, and reminded fans that he would relinquish the race after reaching 100 million subs – which he is just a mere 10 million away from achieving.


Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
