PewDiePie puts Lilly Singh on blast, compares her to viral meme

YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is taking even more shots at popular YouTuber Lilly Singh, after shading her performance in HBO’s Fahrenheit 451. Now, he’s comparing her to a viral meme from a Looney Tunes cartoon.

PewDiePie brought up Singh yet again in his ‘Meme Awards 2018’ video on December 31, where he compared the viral YouTuber and actress to the ‘Big Chungus’ meme of recent internet fame.

“I don’t think people fathom how big Big Chungus really is,” Pewds said of the meme. “Big Chungus has gotten so popular that they got a live action [movie] confirmed with it, and it’s played by Lilly Singh. Finally, a real actor, playing a really important role.”

Appearing in the 1941 Merrie Melodies ‘Wabbit Twouble’ episode, ‘Big Chungus’ is merely Bugs Bunny’s imitation of Elmer Fudd, which has since gained fame as a widespread meme – thanks to an anonymous 4chan user.

This isn’t the first time Pewds has thrown major shade toward Singh; in fact, he’s taken issue with the YouTuber on multiple occasions, shading her role in HBO’s ‘Fahrenheit 451’ and even going so far as to call her an “idiot and a crybaby,” for her stance on Forbe’s top 10 list of highest earning YouTubers.

Pewds isn’t the only major YouTuber to take shots at Singh, either – Drama Alert’s Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem called out Singh in a critical Tweet on December 27, calling the YouTuber “too plastic” due to her ‘12 Collabs of Christmas’ initiative, which saw her team up with the likes of television personality Dr. Phil, actor Terry Crews, and even John Cena, among other celebs.

While Singh has addressed PewDiePie’s comments via Twitter, it doesn’t look like the two YouTubers are making up any time soon.

In her second Twitch stream, AOC hilariously explained how experiencing Elo Hell in League of Legends helped her develop the patience required for being a congresswoman.

U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, affectionally known as AOC, has been open about how much she loves League of Legends in the past. The proud politician even stunned her fans and followers when she revealed she finally made Silver IV.

It might have been her first foray into the minds and hearts of gamers around the world, but it certainly wasn’t the last. In October, AOC made history when hundreds of thousands of viewers tuned in to watch her play Among Us on Twitch for the very first time.

AOC was so well-loved among streamers and viewers, they begged her to come back for a second stream. It finally happened on November 27, and it was as wholesome and entertaining as the first.

AOC’s first ever Among Us stream on Twitch was a smash hit.

At one point during the stream, Ryan ‘Northernlion’ Letourneau asked AOC an interesting question about her League of Legends experience and her response was both understandable and hilarious.

“Do you think having to keep your cool in League of Legends chat has helped your political career when it comes to maintaining some decorum in Congress?” asked Northernlion.

“Yeah, I think so,” said AOC. “Getting caught in Elo Hell really requires so much patience. I was playing with 12-year-olds… rage quitting five minutes into a game… so it really builds your patience.”

Elo Hell is a term used to describe situations where players and their rankings are dragged down due to incompetent and toxic teammates. It’s something League of Legends players know all too well, including AOC.

AOC has always managed to come across as down-to-earth. Still, it’s comforting and kind of funny to hear an esteemed congresswoman talk about something so relatable, especially to gamers.

Elo Hell in League of Legends is the absolute pits, but at least we now know it counts for something.
