YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg took shots at Twitch personality Alinity, following her recent wardrobe malfunction on camera which led to her being banned on the streaming platform. 

Twitch streamer Alinity kicked off a new storm of controversy when on April 24, a clothing slip-up during her broadcast netted her channel a 24-hour ban from the site.

During his April 27 episode of Last Week I Asked You, PewDiePie weighed in on the incident and roasted the personality for her latest drama on the platform.

The YouTuber was in the middle of an episode of LWIAY – a series where he reacts to fan submissions on his subreddit –  and came across a post featuring the Twitch streamer. “Alinity doesn’t forgive PewDiePie for calling her a Twitch thot,” the post read.

After reading the caption aloud, Pewds said “Oh no!” sarcastically, before turning to the camera and joking, “How about a stuck up b**ch!” The Swede followed up with a joke about her ban. “You hear Alinity got banned recently? We did it, gamers!”

He broke into laughter when he found out there had been a petition on Change.org to get her suspended. The entertainer then told his audience, “She insists it wasn’t a ban, but a suspension!” referring to tweets she had made after being penalized.

(Timestamp 09:28 for mobile users.)

While the Swedish star is clearly just joking around, this isn’t the first time he and Alinity have crossed paths. In 2018, the streamer became upset with him and filed a copyright strike against his channel.

Pewds made a video response, and called her out at the time for boasting about it.”Alinity the most likable genius of all time, of course admits publicly to abusing copyright law. She didn’t like what I said, so she wanted to take down the video!” he said.

On March 16, the popular YouTuber reacted to another clip of the streamer, this time of her being swiped at by her cat and called it a “happy ending” to the “Alinity versus cat” saga.

PewDiePie was, of course, messing around, as his humor is steep in sarcasm. The YouTuber often tackles current news for his audience of over 104 million subscribers, and isn’t afraid to crack a joke.

While there has been a lot of controversy surrounding Alinity’s latest ban, it should be noted that she deleted the VOD immediately after the infraction, and asked Twitch to extend her suspension beyond the 24 hours.

TikTok star and singer Dixie D’Amelio has deleted the teaser for her upcoming song with rapper Wiz Khalifa after receiving overwhelming negative criticism from viewers. Her mother has also released a lengthy statement on the matter.

Dixie D’Amelio is a household name in the social media age; the older sister to Charli D’Amelio (TikTok’s most-followed creator), Dixie has carved her own path, most notably releasing her own original songs with such features as Lil Mosey and, most recently, Wiz Khalifa.

However, it doesn’t seem that online critics are too pleased with her music, as seen by the oodles of negative comments on the teaser for her upcoming song with Khalifa, which she initially posted to TikTok.

Many commenters brutally roasted the TikTok star’s lyrics and singing ability, with one writing, “Does she really think she’s a singer now?”

“God help you and your lyrics,” another wrote.

Dixie has since removed the teaser in wake of the criticism, taking to Twitter to vent about her frustration regarding the overwhelming negativity.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie wrote. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she continued.

Dixie’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, has also spoken out on the issue in a lengthy Instagram stories post.

“To those sh***ing on people who are doing things they love and are getting attention for it — you should find something you love and go do it!” she said. “To anyone who takes the time to type hate towards someone who is having fun and doing what they love, please know you are a classic case of a weak person who is truly pathetic.”

It doesn’t look like Dixie’s nor her mother’s response to the issue is getting any sympathy from critics, though, who continue to levy negativity against the TikTok family royalty for their attitude toward the situation.

“When you’re rich yeah, it’s easy to get those ‘million of chances to do things they love,’” one critic replied.

“Anything you put on the Internet is going to get hate no matter what you do,” another chimed in. “She’s just going to have to get over that and keep her posts up and move forward.”

What’s your take on the situation? Do you think the hate toward Dixie’s creative pursuits is becoming too overwhelming? Or do you think Dixie’s mom has a point about the constant trolling? Let us know on Twitter at @DexertoTrending!
