Popular YouTuber Shane Dawson underwent mass scrutiny after a story from his older podcast circulated around the internet – and now, PewDiePie is weighing in on the issue.

YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg discussed Shane’s ‘catastrophe’ during an episode of ‘Meme Review’ on March 21, where he poked fun at his viral apology Tweet.

“This is why, if you need help writing your apologies, just let your boy know,” Felix said of the issue, jokingly referencing his own past controversies. “I mean, this apology is 10/10, I don’t know what to say.”

While Kjellberg got a good laugh out of the apology, he went on to express some sympathy for Dawson, claiming that the YouTuber’s past humor was incredibly edgy – and even speculated that it was a means for him to vent his sexual frustrations, as he hadn’t come out as bisexual at the time.

“While a lot of people might be shocked by this, it’s obviously just Shane making a joke,” he continued. “But the fact that he says it in such a serious tone, I understand why some people think it’s real.”

A 2014 episode from Dawson’s ‘Shane and Friends’ podcast made the rounds on social media after fans discovered a clip where Shane appeared to detail a sexual experience with his cat.

According to Dawson’s story, he’d “spread” the cat’s legs and “humped” her stomach, stating that he “kept humping and humping” until he “came all over the cat.”

Dawson later explained that the story was completely fabricated in a series of vehement Tweets, noting that the edgy joke was based on a “dumb awful sketch idea.”

Dawson has since become engaged to longtime boyfriend Ryland Adams, as posted to Twitter on March 19.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
