YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has revealed a way that people can completely avoid the European Union’s Article 13, after explaining the upcoming “big change” in online regulations during one of his videos. 

What is Article 13?

The European Parliament voted to give Article 13 the green light on March 26, which has since been renamed Article 17, and is set to bring some major changes to copyright regulation for online content. It passed with votes of 348 votes to 274 and EU member states have up to two years to pass laws to put it into action. 

While discussing the impacts of the decision during one of his YouTube videos on April 4, Pewds sensationally revealed that he has a solution for people who disagree with its approval. 

YouTube: PewDiePiePewDiePie has a huge public influence, with over 93 million YouTube subscribers at the time of writing.

“Article 13 has passed everyone. What we feared all along has become a reality,” he said. “The internet as we know it is gone. It’s obviously really upsetting.”

Many people have suggested that the regulations could completely eradicate memes for Europeans on the internet, as they often use photos covered by copyright, but PewDiePie has offered people a way to avoid the change entirely.

“That’s why I have a great deal for you guys,” he said, before breaking into laughter. “Honestly, we didn’t know that Article 13 was going to pass, but I’ve teamed up with NordVPN, which is an amazing VPN.”

“That’s right, there’s a simple solution to all of this Article 13 mumbo-jumbo, VPNs baby!” he added. “Jokes on you, European legislators!” 

For those who aren’t aware, a VPN is a virtual private network gives the public access to a private network, allowing people to browse without being tracked or monitored. 

PewDiePie concluded by advertising a deal that will give his fans a chance to “troll the European Union,” by signing up to his VPN with a 75% discount.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
