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.

At the time of writing, this video has earned itself 18.3 million views and 3.3m likes.

9. Julian Bass becomes your favorite superheroes

6. Awa_de_horchata_uwu’s… llama dance?

Perhaps the hardest to explain on this list, we’ve got a llama (or maybe an alpaca) dancing to the popular Mi Pan Su Sus sound.

Even Hollywood actors can’t resist joining in on TikTok trends.

Will Smith might be best known for his work in some of the biggest films and TV shows of this century, he’s no stranger to TikTok, either.

4. Jalaiah Harmon shows off her Renegade at NBA All-Star Game

The Renegade is one of the most popular dances on TikTok, and the creator of it all, Jalaiah Harmon, got to show off her famous moves at the NBA All-Star game.

3. Caitlin Reilly captures the real WFH nightmare

With much of the world having to work from home throughout 2020, we’ve all become very familiar with Zoom — but Caitlin’s impression of everyone’s least favorite colleague during a Zoom meeting was perfectly relatable.

2. Doggface208 with the perfect vibe

Doggface208 might not be a huge name on TikTok, but you’ve definitely seen this video by now: just him, skating down the street, listening to Fleetwood Mac and drinking his cranberry juice.

Doggface not only passes the vibe check but sets new standards for it, even earning himself a new truck from the cranberry juice producer, Ocean Spray, as a thanks for his 72m views video.

1. Bella Poarch’s ‘M to the B’ is TikTok perfection

The concept of this video is so simple it’s absurd, but Poarch’s head bobs coinciding perfectly with the M to the B beat gave her TikTok’s most viewed video of all time in 2020.

Over 500m views later, Poarch has become a star on TikTok and only seems to be moving on to bigger and better things, proving that you can really create something magical out of almost nothing.
