YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has explained how he has now changed his approach to his career as a content creator, to avoid getting involved in any unnecessary drama online.

PewDiePie has climbed to a new level of internet fame and is showing no signs of slowing, continuing to entertain fans with videos after becoming the first individual content creator to amass 100 million subscribers on YouTube.

Despite his meteoric rise to the top, the Swedish star has not escaped drama during his time creating content on the platform and has been involved in a few controversies over the years.

While he has not been involved in much drama as of late, PewDiePie reflected on some of his past mistakes during his video on June 11, answering questions that fans had asked about him on Quora.

One fan asked why he has been involved in “so many controversies” and Kjellberg explained that he used to maintain a light-hearted approach when addressing controversial or serious topics in his content.

“I’ve always had a very light-hearted take on serious topics,” he shared, “which was clear [that] someone that is as popular as I am should have seen that coming.”

“It was inevitable, does that make it right? Probably not but that doesn’t make me completely blameless either,” he continued, taking responsibility for some of his past errors.

However, he has now revealed that he has shifted the way he handles more important issues and has been avoiding making similar mistakes in the future.

“But now, no more controversy, he added, explaining that he was following a new “only epic” approach to making content, which seems to have been working out well so far.

PewDiePie has even carried this approach into his new streaming career, where he recently raised over $106,000 for the BLM movement during one of his charity broadcasts.

And, since taking his first lengthy break from YouTube, he has returned rejuvenated and creating fresh content, which has helped him maintain his top spot. Although, he may soon be overtaken by a dark-horse channel.

Millie Bobby Brown deleted her TikTok account without an explanation, and although her fans can understand why, they’ve been left wondering what the reason might be.

Millie Bobby Brown exploded in popularity after all the success of Stranger Things in the past few years. However, fans have been drawn to her bright and bubbly personality too, and she’s developed a big presence on social media

Millie Bobby Brown has almost 40 million followers on Instagram. It was always her biggest platform. However, her TikTok was incredibly popular too. It featured all kinds of content, including clips of her singing, dancing, and recreating viral trends like a normal teenager.

Strangely, she has now deleted her TikTok, and nobody knows why. It came as a huge surprise of her millions of followers, and many are left wondering if and when she’ll return to the video-sharing platform.

Millie Bobby Brown doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. Still, that hasn’t stopped her fans from speculating about some of the reasons why she might have disabled her account, which had around 16.2 million followers, and 158.4 million clip likes.

They’ve suggested everything from avoiding toxicity and needing space to more specific issues like being bombarded with homophobic memes.

It’s impossible to know for sure, but whatever her reason might be, it’s certainly understandable. For all we know, she might have watched The Social Dilemma and decided to cut back on screen time.

It’s not the first time Brown has deleted a social media account either. She deleted her Twitter account all the way back in 2018 due to a series of “disgusting” memes, and she may very well have done the same this time around too.

There are many reasons why Millie Bobby Brown might have deleted her TikTok. But in the end, it doesn’t change the fact that she has deleted it, and it’s a decision that her fans may need to support.

Of course, her TikTok videos will be sorely missed. They always managed to brighten people’s days.

Still, it’s important to remember there’s an actual person behind the spotlight. She can do whatever she wants with her accounts, without explaining it to anyone.
