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.


Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
