Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has called out a number of fellow YouTubers who have been offering up advice during the Coronavirus outbreak despite admitting that they are not “experts.”

With the Coronavirus sweeping across the globe, forcing cancellations to public events, shutting down sports leagues, and leading to countries going on mandatory lockdowns, the internet is still doing its best to entertain – be it through content like YouTube and Twitch or having esports in the place of other sports.

However, as the situation with the outbreak has continued to worsen, many people have been chiming in with advice – be it off their own back or through what they’ve seen in the media. This includes YouTubers, who despite admitting they aren’t fully knowledgeable about what is happening, still want to create content.

PewDiePie isn’t a fan of the “I’m not an expert” line.

Instead, they’ve found themselves on the receiving end of a roast from PewDiePie, who has turned their own videos about the pandemic against them.

Posting on his YouTube story via the mobile app, the Swede said: “I really like all the Corona videos that YouTubers are making now for whatever reason. They all start them off with ‘I am not expert guys.’ Like, really? You don’t f**king say you’re not a Coronavirus expert!”

Pewds himself has made satirical videos about the current pandemic, though he isn’t in the business of using the “I’m not an expert” line. Instead, he chose to poke fun at people who had gone a bit too far in panic-buying, jokingly saying that those who hadn’t “stocked up with at least 500 toilet paper rolls” were in trouble.

In another story post, the YouTube star revealed that he is spending time during the outbreak by going on an anime “binge,” with a photo of himself watching Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure attached.

Of course, as more and more people seek advice in the time of crisis, there might be more YouTubers who try and give their two cents worth.

Though, they may not want to bother, because they could always find themselves ending up on an episode of Meme Review in the future.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
