YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg uploaded a video reviewing (and ultimately roasting) the apology videos of several controversial YouTubers – including his own.

PewDiePie’s original video was in response to a controversy where he used a racial slur during a livestream in September 2017, prompting an immediate wave of criticism.

Felix began the review of his apology video by taking issue with his posture and his expression, claiming that he seemed angry, and that his posture was in a ‘defensive position.’

He likewise responded to his claim that the slur was said “in the heat of the moment,” which has since become a meme used in reference to the toxic side of gaming culture.

“I didn’t mean for this to sound like an excuse, but it 100% comes across as an excuse,” he said of the statement. “I never should have said that.”

Following these words, he played another selection from his apology video where he stated that he wasn’t making any excuses, and laughed.

“…except you basically just made a bunch of excuses for it, you idiot,” he chuckled.

In addition, Felix addressed his position as a prominent member of the YouTube community, which he humorously claimed that he ‘keeps forgetting.’

“If you want to make a good apology video, just be honest,” PewDiePie summed up. “Don’t think that you can try and trick the internet, because you can’t.”

PewDiePie also took shots at the apology videos of YouTubers TmarTn, Laura Lee, and even Logan Paul, who has seemingly recovered from his controversy with the release of his YouTube Red movie.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
