Dedicated fans of Swedish YouTuber, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, are encouraging others to celebrate ‘International PewDiePie Day’ on April 29 – in a bid to reclaim the number one spot from T-Series.

As the battle continues between Indian record label, T-Series and PewDiePie, fans are continuing to try new, unique ways to help PewDiePie reach 100 million subscribers first.

In the latest bid to put PewDiePie back in front, fans have come up with the idea of devoting an entire day to the Swedish YouTuber.

After images were created by JohnysBeauty on Reddit of PewDiePie’s partner Marzia wearing Captain Marvel’s suit which was titled as Captain Marzia, a similar one of PewDiePie followed long with the announcement of international PewDiePie day.

The post was shared to PewDiePie’s SubReddit which contained a poster image of PewDiePie photoshopped in Captain America’s suit with the slogan “Last Stretch to the finish line”, along with some information on the event.

The ultimate goal of this event on April 29 is to celebrate the 9th anniversary of PewDiePie’s YouTube channel, as well as helping him climb to 100 million subscribers on the platform before T-Series

(SPREAD THE WORD) You’ve seen Captain Marzia. Now embrace for the ENDGAME. Let’s do our part together on 29 April, the 9th anniversary of PewDiePie! from r/PewdiepieSubmissions

Although it is not entirely clear what else the day would entail, these fans have began recruiting teams within the Reddit thread and now have over 20 users committed to organizing the event.

Fans on the thread are beginning to be split into teams of Marketing, Arts and creativity, and even Human resources in order to share the event and have also made social media accounts for the day to begin to promote the day with just under a month to go.

Many are wondering just how much traction ‘International PewDiePie Day’ will end up getting as the month goes on and if this is something we will see for years to come.

Hafu’s Among Us lobby takes action against toxic Twitch chat

In light of recent drama involving xChocoBars and Twitch chat toxicity in Hafu’s Among Us lobbies, the streamers are working together to implement a process aimed at curtailing unsavory viewers.

In one of Rumay ‘Hafu’ Wang’s popular Among Us sessions with a variety of streamers, Luminosity Gaming’s xChocoBars was driven to tears and an early conclusion of her stream by overwhelming toxicity in Twitch chat.

While Hafu and others, like Jeremy ‘DisguisedToast’ Wang, tried to console xChocoBars and let her know that chat was being unfair — the damage had already been done. Viewers were aggressively berating ChocoBars for failing to identify the impostor and that pushed her to find a substitute for her in the game and end her stream early, forgoing involvement in Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter’s session later in the day.

In the hours since the unfortunate incident, Hafu has worked on creating a process to deal with toxic chatters that will involve moderators from each streamer’s chat joining a collective Discord channel.

As Hafu explains, her Among Us morning lobbies will be accompanied by a communal “mod Discord.” This will allow the streamers, in unison, to levy out punishments to someone who has been overly toxic in any individual chat.

While Hafu denotes the level of toxicity as anyone being a “poopoo head,” it’s clear that this process is designed to ensure that anyone wanting to be toxic will be relegated to uninvolvement in any stream that is part of the lobby.

Overall, the idea is a quality one as it should deter people from being too nasty in chat. If someone is so invested in a streamer’s game of Among Us that they become toxic, they’ll probably dislike being completely banned from the entire lobby’s streams.

As xChocoBars tweeted, she did need to take a break from the internet for a while after dealing with toxicity in the morning stream — but she will be returning for Hafu’s next morning Among Us lobby.

It’s unclear if this anti-toxicity process was in the works before ChocoBars decided to join for the following morning’s stream. Regardless, it should be comforting to know that the lobby is taking action against what has become a growing issue in Among Us streams.
