YouTube king Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg is coming off an insanely successful streak in his career, breaking 101 million subscribers and even getting married to fiance Marzia Bisognin – and he’s celebrating with a massive Minecraft stream.

Kjellberg teased the stream in a Tweet on August 26, claiming that he would celebrate his major YouTube milestone with a 12-hour Minecraft broadcast upon returning from his honeymoon in Bali, Indonesia.

Calling his milestone an “unbelievable achievement,” the YouTube king promised a “12 hour livestream and the fattest brofist” on his return – and now, he’s finally delivering on that promise.

PewDiePie went live on September 17 for a Minecraft Hardcore mode broadcast on DLive, a broadcasting platform that he exclusively partnered with in April over sites like Twitch and YouTube.

Despite dedicating his stream to Minecraft, Kjellberg also took the opportunity to broadcast his latest episode of Meme Review in wake of his popularity with the game’s community.

The stream is still live at the time of writing, and fans can catch the the “hardcore” hijinks via his channel on DLive.

While PewDiePie Tweeted out an announcement for the stream prior to his honeymoon, the Swede also teased the livestream during an episode of LWIAY on August 12, knowing that his massive fanbase would be begging for a huge Minecraft stream to honor his success.

“No one’s gonna want anything else,” he said of the idea. “Let’s get real here. Come on, gamers. 12 hour livestream at 100 million.”

As it happens, Kjellberg was right: at hour nine, his broadcast boasts well over 59,000 viewers, and more are pouring in.

Although Kjellberg has kept his word, this wouldn’t be the first time the YouTuber has made a grandiose promise to his audience – in fact, the YouTuber even claimed he would delete his channel after reaching 50 million subs in 2016.

While his threat was obviously a joke, it’s safe to say that fans are relieved that PewDiePie didn’t make good on that particular promise, with the Swede diving further into his Minecraft fanbase in celebration of YouTube’s greatest milestone yet for an independent creator.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
