During his August 30 upload, YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to fans roasting him over his Nintendo Switch. The Swedish star hilariously responded to fans worried about how he docks his portable console.

For over the last decade, PewDiePie has been the face of online gaming for many viewers. The personality went from his humble roots playing horror games on YouTube in 2011, to amassing over 106 million subscribers to his channel in 2020.

“Came here to let Felix know that his switch isn’t docked properly and having it sit like this can cause damage!” he read aloud. He then said “How? How would it cause damage?! 51,000 upvotes, are you kidding me?!”

Kjellberg then exclaimed, “I spent $2,000 on tambourines and you are only talking about the Switch!” referencing his August 23 upload where the Switch could be seen behind the ceiling-high tower he built out of 69 tambourines.

The Swede admitted that the console was too high on the dock, but then proceeded to joke about people being bothered by such a trivial thing by tilting his camera slightly off, and showing his phone not being connected properly.

Fans of PewDiePie really seemed bothered by his Switch docking habits. In the original post on the r/pewdiepiesubmissions subreddit, users explained how much the sight of his console was a distraction.

Redditor ‘mimmiiiiii‘ exclaimed, “I physically cringed when I saw [the Nintendo Switch]. It wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if I left my switch like that tbh. Maybe I’m just poor.”

Nintendo Switch docking aside, the creator continues to crush it in 2020. The 30-year-old announced in May that he had signed a major deal with YouTube to stream exclusively on their platform.

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.
