YouTube king Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg has sensationally broken yet another milestone on the content sharing platform, despite being on vacation the entire time since his last landmark. 

The popular internet personality quietly tied the knot with fiance Marzia Bisognin in August and has been hardly active ever since, only chiming in with a vlog or two on his YouTube channel while enjoying his honeymoon in Bali. 

During that time, however, PewDiePie has gone one better than being the only person to build a YouTube channel with over 100 million subscribers, after quickly hiking up to 101 million. 

PewDiePie, InstagramPewDiePie’s enjoyed incredible success with YouTube subscribers, despite being on vacation.

The jump in subscribers has taken PewDiePie less than a month. In fact, in the last 30 days, from August 10 to September 8, he has gained over 2 million subscribers.

Unfortunately, though, he’s now fallen off the tail of rival channel T-Series – who have 111,000,000 subscribers at the time of writing. 

T-Series’ growth has been even more impressive but considering it’s a full-blown production company vs PewDiePie and his one editor, it’s not exactly a fair fight.

The YouTuber sparked what has been an incredible resurgence of players going back to Minecraft after leading the way with his very own in-game series. 

His collection of videos have continually gone viral, whether it be building up an army of pigs, snowmen, or even tackling the Ender Dragon in an epic encounter, he’s created must-see content on a consistent basis and is reaping the rewards.

Fans of the Swede will be wondering whether or not he will continue the Minecraft journey when he returns to creating YouTube videos, following the honeymoon, but he seems to be doing just fine even when he’s not uploading.

TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio has lost 500,000 followers within the space of two days, with people unfollowing on mass after comments about her follower count that many are calling “ungrateful.”

Charli started her TikTok account in 2019, and within the space of a year went from ordinary teenager to global social media star, securing brand deals and collaborations with some huge celebrities.

The 16-year-old is currently miles ahead of other TikTok accounts on the road to 100 million followers, and was set to reach the milestone very soon. However comments that she made about her follower count have caused a setback.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivalled success on TikTok.

In a November 16 video with James Charles and her family, Charli said about the impending follower milestone, “I wish I had more time! Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

James Charles rebutted “was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” with Charli replying “I was just saying like, even numbers,” while sticking out her tongue at the camera with a smile.

While the interaction appeared to have simply been a joke, the comments from the young star certainly ruffled some feathers among fans. People called Charli out for being “ungrateful,” and said that “she deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her.”

This caused an influx of people to unfollow the star, and where she was initially creeping up at a steady pace towards the big 100 million, she’s now found herself heading back in the opposite direction.

Prior to the backlash, Social Blade shows Charli’s highest follower count as being 99.4 million, but at the time of writing it has dropped to 98.96 according to livecounts.io, leaving her at a loss of just over 500,000 followers.

In celebration of her hitting 99 million on November 16, Charli tweeted that “I am so incredibly thankful for every single one of you! You all have changed my life with all of the support and love you give to me!”

While her comments seemed to be just a poorly timed joke, it certainly has frustrated some of her followers, and has proven to be a setback on her road to 100 million.
