YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was in hysterics over a viral clip of Twitch streamer Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollon being bitten by her cat. The Swedish entertainer explained how it was a “happy ending” for those on internet that were angry at her.

Twitch personality Alinity kicked off a firestorm in 2019 when video surfaced where she threw her cat named Milo over her shoulders. Viewers from around the world were outraged at what critics claimed was “animal abuse.”

During his March 16 upload, PewDiePie reacted to a popular clip of the streamer being bitten by her pet during her March 6 broadcast.  The YouTube star jokingly explained why the internet was “satisfied” by the incident.

The YouTuber’s latest video was centered on the r/LivestreamFails subreddit – a popular forum which hosts clips from Twitch broadcasts. He then stumbled upon a post titled “Milo gets revenge on Alinity” that had over 12,000 upvotes.

However, the video attached was removed due to copyright, which caused the Swede to joke, “The content was removed by copyright claim. So I can’t react to Alinity getting bitten by her cat. Are you serious?”

Not willing to disappoint his viewers, he said “Can I show a still image at least?” before finding a backup link to the video. “Oh, the music is copyrighted. That’s why! Just imagine the most horrific singing voice of all time, basically.”

The Swedish YouTuber couldn’t contain his laughter at the Alinity video.

In the original stream, Alinity was singing Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” when the cat jumped up and bit her arm. Pewds then paused the video at the moment the feline pulled at her skin and burst into laughter.

“Look at the freakin’… It gets a huge pile of meat, dude! Look at that, look at that. That’s so much!”  he said as he zoomed in closer on the clip. Pinching his own arm skin, he told viewers “I can’t even!”

Sarcastically, he then explained why the internet would be pleased about what happened. “How nice is this that this is the conclusion of the Alinity versus cat saga. It ended with a happy ending, and the internet was satisfied.”

PewDiePie was, of course, joking as his sarcastic humor has become a staple of his channel. However the clip going viral shows that people are still upset over Alinity’s cat incident from 2019.

The Swedish star has continued to rack up millions of views on his recent reaction videos, and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. He currently has an astonishing 103 million subs to his channel.

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.
