Marzia Bisognin, wife of YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie Kjellberg,’ notably left the platform after seven years in October 2018 — and while it’s been some time since she stopped creating content, jokes about her departure may not be entirely welcome.

After seven years of making videos and vlogging her exotic trips with husband PewDiePie, Marzia announced she was halting her content creating endeavors, claiming that she felt like a “fraud” and wanted to pursue her own career path, rather than following in her hubby’s footsteps on YouTube.

“It’s about needing to find my path, because for a long time I felt like I was following someone else’s,” she said, referencing her relationship with Kjellberg. “I think it’s about time that I give myself a chance with something else.”

Over a year later, fans are comfortable enough to poke fun at her departure from the website — a few memes of which popped up in an April 13 episode of PewDiePie’s LWIAY series.

While he was also apparently fine with joking about the matter, he asked fans to stop memeing Marzia’s emotional and soul-baring video describing why she’d chosen to step back from making videos.

Marzia was a familiar face on YouTube, known for her vlogs of her exotic vacations with husband PewDiePie, which gave an inside look at their hectic and glamorous life.

“Don’t meme my wife leaving YouTube, guys, come on,” he warned lightheartedly, going on to react to the meme in question, which joked that his loud recording sessions were the “real” reason she’d decided to leave YouTube.

“Sometimes I record when we travel,” he explained. “I’m always so self-conscious about neighbors, and I always ask Marzia, ‘Was I extremely loud?’ And she’s like, ‘No.’ I guess she’s so conditioned to it. That’s what it is!”

Although it’s obvious that PewDiePie isn’t offended by fans taking the opportunity to make memes of Marzia’s October 2018 video, it makes sense that he’d ask them to pump the brakes a bit, as it was obviously a difficult decision for Marzia to make.

In fact, news of her exodus from the platform went viral online, with fans reaching out across social media in support of a content creator who’d always appeared alongside one of YouTube’s biggest stars with a peek behind the curtain into their private lives.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
