Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg completely bowled over his fans in May after he revealed how his body had changed since he started getting into shape. Four months on, the YouTuber has blessed us with another update, which is even more shocking than the last.

On Wednesday the Swedish YouTuber posted an image of his shredded physique, bathed in golden light, on Instagram saying “Last day of no simp September boys.” The post has racked up a whopping 2 million likes in less than three hours.

Over the last decade, PewDiePie has become the face of online entertainment for many viewers. The content creator went from his humble roots playing games in 2010 to amassing over 107 million subscribers to his channel in 2020.

The scrawny gamer that fans were accustomed to has now disappeared. In May, PewDiePie’s wife Marzia posted an image of him standing topless halfway up a ladder, posing with thumbs up and a much more muscular torso than fans had previously seen.

Fans of the YouTuber were stunned, by his physical transformation.

Amid the uproar, PewDiePie told his subscribers all about how he achieved his new body, explaining that he quit soda, alcohol and ate lots more protein.

Fans of the content creator were also quick to create hilarious memes. Users jokingly compared his look to popular anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and credited his abs as a result of his “Floor Gang” philosophy.

This time the creator posted to his own Instagram, sans a dorky thumbs up, displaying a herculean upper body with ripped abs and arms.

It’s safe to say, people are in awe of such a transformation, with one commenter saying “Remember that gamer you used to bully back in high school, this is him now.” Another person wrote “FLEX OR FELIX?”

Other content creators leaped to respond: YouTuber Dolan Dark wrote “I’m gay now,” Jacksepticeye added “Bruh!!” and Gamer Sssniperwolf wrote, “this is a simp free zone.”

Dellor shocked as Twitch finally unbans him after over a year

After just over one year following his permanent ban from Twitch, dellor’s channel has been reinstated on the platform. The former Overwatch pro now says it’s his “second chance.”

Matt ‘dellor’ Vaughn has had a turbulent streaming career – he was dropped from his Overwatch team, Toronto Esports, after a racist outburst, effectively ending his career as a pro player.

Then, in 2019, he was banned from Twitch after telling his female teammate in Apex Legends to “cook a sandwich.” This ban originally earned him an indefinite suspension, before it was reduced to 30 days.

Upon his return however, his partnership had been revoked, leaving him without a sub button, seriously impacting his income. Then, in October 2019, dellor was “banned indefinitely for “self-harm” for breaking a keyboard on stream.”

This ban prompted the hashtag #freedellor on Twitter, as fans thought the permanent ban was harsh. But, Twitch kept firm, and dellor eventually moved to streaming on YouTube instead.

He pleaded with Twitch to allow him back onto the platform on a handful of occasions. Finally, on October 6, seemingly out of the blue, dellor’s channel was reinstated, and his ban lifted.

“I had given up all hope,” dellor said on Twitter. “After everything I have said about them, Twitch actually unbanned me.”

His channel, complete with over 550,000 followers (and likely more as Twitch rebuilds the follow count after a suspension), is fully intact.

This doesn’t mean though that he will necessarily return to streaming on Twitch though. Being unbanned on the platform at least means he is able to play with friends who are streaming on Twitch themselves.

He is still not partnered on the platform and does not have a subscribe button. He will still be able to earn money through donations, but to access subscriptions or bits will need to become a Twitch affiliate.

However, if he wants to become a partner again, it would mean stopping his YouTube streams altogether, where he has now built up a following since his time away from Twitch.
