YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg claimed that BTS fans “are the most insane on the planet” while watching a documentary about one of the Korean band’s most obsessed followers.

BTS is one of the most popular KPOP groups in Korea, and making their debut in 2013 , they have amassed a loyal fan base from around the world that is intensely dedicated to them.

PewDiePie demonstrated this during his January 11 upload, when he reacted to a fan that had taken his obsession to the next level by using plastic surgery to look like member of the band Jimin.

The popular YouTuber was watching a video about a BTS fan who spent over $150,000 to look Korean, and confessed, “You know I’m not gonna lie. I had the KPOP bug bite me too. But I think you know, there is a limit to everything. My God!”

He was astonished by the fan’s admission that KPOP idols are “manufactured” to be perfect, and yet still wanted to emulate that. “Yeah, that’s the whole thing, it’s all manufactured. They all do surgery in Korea. It’s all just companies producing these stars like out of a treadmill,” he said.

Pewds then exclaimed that BTS  fans are crazy. “I wonder what the BTS stans think of this guy,” he said. “Because they are the most insane people on the planet!” Although, he was quick to clarify that, “Not everyone. But some of them are. That’s pretty fair.”

While he specified it wasn’t all of the BTS Army, the Swede has faced the wrath of KPOP lovers before. During his January 4 edition of PewNews, the YouTuber revealed that fans became upset that he ranked second on a ‘100 Most Handsome Faces of 2019’ list.

“People were really upset that their favorite KPOP stan didn’t make it to the list, so they used me as the ugly example!” he explained, as he showed tweets that were comparing his face to a famous Korean musician.

The 30-year-old, amused with his placement on the list, shouted, “suck it KPOP stans!” BTS member Jungkook ultimately took the number one spot on the list, just one place ahead of the YouTube star.

Despite claiming some BTS fans to be intense, PewDiePie has been a fan of the Korean band in the past, mentioning them in numerous videos, and following them on social media.

The Swede announced in December 2019 that he would be taking a short break from creating content on the video platform, and has surely earned the vacation, reaching 102 million subscribers late last year.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc reached out to LS during T1 fans backlash

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
