During his March 9 upload, YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg roasted “simp” Twitch viewers who donate to streamers like Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys & BadBunny.
PewDiePie continues to dominate on YouTube, with millions of viewers flooding his channel thanks to his meme-based humor that has captivated his audience. Unsurprisingly, he remains the largest content creator on YouTube in 2020 based on subscribers, with nobody coming close to eclipsing his standing at the top of the mountain.
As always, the Swede has his finger on the pulse of memes, and the 30-year-old brought his signature wit and sarcasm on Monday, March 9 when he shared his light-hearted take on the term “simp,” a phrase used to roast Twitch viewers who donate large amounts of money or are thought to be too nice to female streamers and content creators.
PewDiePie mocks “simps” who donate to female streamers
In typical PewDiePie fashion, he kicked off his video by joking that simps were “the lowest of the low,” pretending that he couldn’t even fathom the idea, and found the whole thing to be disgusting.
Next up, the Swede sarcastically hit out at men who donate to Twitch streamers, pretending that they were the reason behind the outrage that fuels the term simp, before taking a look at some content creators who have hit back at their viewers for not donating like BadBunny. “Remember a few months ago, there was this girl complaining about not getting a $5 donation,” he told his viewers during his satirical rant. “She knows what she’s doing. She’s antagonizing the simps!”
The YouTuber then turned his wit towards the men that were quick to defend her, joking that the “simps then come to the rescue,” before breaking into fits of laughter after reading a tweet about Amouranth’s sleeping stream, which had 1700 viewers watching her catch 40 winks.
The Swedish personality also reacted to a clip that saw Twitch star Pokimane dancing, oblivious that someone named Russell had just donated $500 to her. “Russell! Why would you do that?” he giggled. “Why would you sink that low? Never do that again!”
Of course, just as PewDiePie claimed he was tired of pretending that simping wasn’t ok, an image appeared labeling him to be the very thing he was talking about, with the YouTuber acting like he was unbelievably offended, before saying: “Imagine simping for a girl with dyed hair,” clearly poking fun at himself and wife Marzia, who regularly does just that.

Regular viewers of PewDiePie will know that the entire video was all in jest and that they should never take anything he says too seriously, with the YouTuber loving to poke fun and make jokes in all of his videos. The Swede loves this type of content so much that he even created Meme Review, a show where he can look at all of the latest viral posts blowing up on social media, and add his own hilarious commentary
PewDiePie continues to crush it with his uploads, pulling in millions of views since his return from his month-long break in January, with his “9-year-old army” delighted to see him regularly uploading content again.
