In his December 7 upload, Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg unloaded on all the things he hates about YouTube, as his lengthy list of criticisms roasted trends on the video-hosting platform.

PewDiePie has had one hell of a year, reaching over 102 million subscribers on his channel in August, marrying his best friend Marzia ‘CutiePie’ Bisognin in the same month, and even buying a house in Japan.

The undisputed king of YouTube was even featured in this year’s “Rewind” – an end of the year video that the video hosting platform puts out annually – after accumulating the most views in 2019.

However, the Swede used his latest upload to hilariously roast the trends that content creators have adopted, and called out all the “annoyances” he has with the site.

Instagram: @pewdiepieThe YouTube King passed over 102 million followers in 2019.

PewDiePie explains what he hates the most about YouTube

The 30-year-old opened up his video by explaining that he was going to go off on a rant about people on the platform. “I just wanted to rant today about some stuff that I notice some YouTubers do that is weird.”

He then began to list things off, starting with “YouTubers have no idea what they are doing, so they just copy everyone else!” before he gave an example of how many content creators have copied SSSniperWolf’s thumbnail style.

The gamer originally used a strip of red in her backgrounds, and now many creators do the same thing. “For whatever reason, people think this is worth replicating. This tiny bit of red, that’s what’s gonna get you views!” he laughed.

Pewds explained how annoying he finds “descriptions” on videos, and the unnatural way people talk to hit keyword searches. “I’ve been told by YouTube to write better descriptions. And I just could not care less. I don’t want to. It’s just so lame!”

The Swede then went off on the trend of YouTubers making reaction faces in thumbnails. “After you’ve done a thousand of these stupid faces, it’s like no, I’m done. I’m officially done. I’ve done too many!” he exclaimed.

Lastly, he called out YouTubers such as JonTron for their repetitive promotion of the mobile game Raid: Shadow Legends. “I’m not gonna hate on people for getting bread on YouTube. But for f**k’s sake, stop! It’s the same script for everyone!”

The video was all in good fun though, as the YouTube king also turned the tables as he asked his fans on Twitter what they found annoying about YouTubers like himself.

PewDiePie continues to be a pivotal voice on the video sharing platform, as he was ranked as the number one most viewed channel during this year’s Rewind, as well as having the second most liked video in 2019.

Bryce Hall puts Quen Blackwell on blast after Griffin Johnson TikTok drama

Following on from Quen Blackwell and Griffin Johnson’s social media clash, Bryce Hall has now jumped into the mix and lashed back at the original post that kickstarted the feud.

If you’re not up to speed on the latest TikTok kerfuffle, don’t stress. Here’s a quick refresher. Two days ago social media celeb Quen Blackwell reacted to a TikTok post featuring Bryce Hall and Addison Rae.

Their relationship has been hot and cold throughout most of the year. Blackwell took the opportunity to joke about the on-again, off-again couple, yelling “no” at the top of lungs in her own post. While Johnson was the first to take issue with her comedic reaction, Hall has now fired back as well.

Rather than calling her out on social media, however, Hall allegedly got in touch and hashed it out directly. It’s clear that things didn’t go down all too well between the pair as he’s since gone on to expose their private conversation.

“So I confronted her and talked about it,” he said. As it turns out, Blackwell was forthcoming with her intentions. “I only do this for likes and being relatable,” she explained, according to Hall.

“I get it, you’re just doing it for numbers. It had like 1.5 million likes, I get it,” Hall assured. As social media personalities, both have their own audiences and both create content to generate engagement. While that TikTok may have struck a nerve at first, it seemed as though they were able to get on the same page in their chat.

That mutual respect didn’t stand for all too long though. Blackwell claimed she wouldn’t do it again, though that wasn’t the case as she touched on the subject 24 hours later before deleting her videos. “It’s so fake,” Hall said in response.

“Now that she’s deleted the videos, we’re friends again. We’re gonna be like the rest of these social media people and just act as though nothing happens behind the scenes.”


Clearly not too pleased with how the drama unfolded, Hall can at least respect that Blackwell deleted her latest videos. At the time of writing, this seems to be the end of the controversy. Though it could all kick off once more if Blackwell goes back on her word yet again.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated if the latest TikTok drama continues to explode across social media.
