On June 15, YouTube personality Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg tackled personal questions in an “assumptions” video, and opened up about why he doesn’t work with other creators as often as he’d like to.

For many, PewDiePie has been the face of YouTube for nearly a decade. The content creator has come a long way from his humble roots in Sweden, as he’s now the most followed individual on the platform with 105 million subscribers.

During his latest video, the star tackled “assumptions” about him in a question and answer style interview. The 30-year-old explained to viewers why he doesn’t get to collaborate with others often.

The entertainer tackled the “assumptions about me” trend on social media, where creators answer personal comments from viewers. During the segment, the Swede responded to a fan who believed he doesn’t collaborate with new guests due to “disliking most of YouTube.”

“That’s not true. I collabed with Ninja, I collabed with James Charles and that was fun,” he said, before opening up about why he doesn’t work with other creators often. “I think it’s more the fact that I don’t like asking people “Hey you wanna collab?” …It feels weird to me.”

He admitted that while he likes working with other YouTubers, he dislikes asking others for things in general. “I don’t know why. I just really hate asking people for stuff. I do enjoy it. I just don’t like asking,” he continued.

Pewds also explained to his audience that despite his outgoing personality on camera, he’s actually shy. “I’m shy and I don’t like it. That’s the truth. I try to push myself to not be, but it’s really hard. It comes across very obvious when I interact with other people online sometimes.”

(Topic starts at 13:44.)

The star also addressed other subjects, such as fans running into him in real life, what his personality is like off camera, and why he struggles to talk about serious topics online.

PewDiePie announced on May 4 that he had signed a major deal with YouTube to stream exclusively on their platform.

The personality’s shift towards live broadcasts in 2020 seems to have paid off, as he revealed he’s having the most fun in a while making content because he gets to interact with fans.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
