Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg revealed a hilarious story about when he met Marvel Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds. The Swedish star explained how he wronged the Hollywood star after taking selfies together.

With over 107 million subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is undisputedly one of the most popular entertainers in the entire world. During a November upload, the 31-year-old reminisced about his entire career.

During the reflective episode, Kjellberg opened up about how he once meant Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds. The YouTuber apologized to the star after confessing that he had hilariously did him “dirty” with an Instagram post from 2016.

PewDiePie reveals hilarious Ryan Reynolds story

While going through his entire Instagram history, the popular YouTuber stopped at the year 2016 to explain a picture he had taken with Ryan Reynolds. Pewds confessed to his fans that he had done the Deadpool actor “dirty” by uploading the selfie to his social media.

“I met Ryan Reynolds in the screen room. He is the only celebrity I’ve ever asked for a selfie, and I still feel bad for asking for it. But he was really nice about it. And I did him dirty,” he said, before apologizing directly to the Hollywood star. “Ryan, if you are watching I’m sorry.”

The personality revealed how he hilariously wronged the Marvel alum: “I had two photos I could pick from. One where I looked good, and one where you looked good. But there wasn’t one where we both looked good, and I did you dirty. I’m sorry.”

PewDiePie added that Reynolds still looked “really good” despite going with the less flattering photo. He met the actor while visiting America during a promo tour in 2016, where he went on various late night shows such as Conan O’Brien.

While Kjellberg is the undoubtedly YouTube’s biggest star with over 107 million subscribers, he also admitted that he was socially awkward four years ago when going on television. Pewds stated that he wished he could do it again now that he has more confidence.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
