YouTube’s most subscribed creator, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, continues to take shots at fellow YouTuber Lilly Singh – this time, over her involvement in HBO Films’ ‘Fahrenheit 451.’

PewDiePie uploaded a video on December 29 where he discussed the 72 books he’d read throughout 2018, including Ray Bradbury’s classic novel, ‘Fahrenheit 451.’

Pewds wasn’t too impressed with the title, comparing it to Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World,’ and even threw shade toward the book’s 2018 film adaptation – particularly due to Lilly Singh’s involvement in the production.

“This is the one that’s going to get a movie adapted to it,” PewDiePie said of the novel. “I think Lilly Singh is even acting in it, so it’s gonna be great,” he continued, sarcastically raising his hands in mock excitement.

His video went on to showcase ‘Fahrenheit 451’s’ poor rating on Rotten Tomatoes, where it received an overall score of 5/10 and an audience score of 23%. Pewds then showed footage from Singh’s special with HBO discussing her role in the film, followed by a clip from one of Pewd’s previous videos where he called her an “idiot” and a “crybaby.”

This isn’t the first time Pewds has thrown shade at Singh; he slammed the YouTuber in early December for criticizing Forbe’s list of 2018’s top 10 highest earning YouTubers, which she decried for not featuring a single female creator in its ranks.

Since then, Singh has been shaded by multiple personalities in the space, including the likes of Drama Alert’s Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem, who felt that Singh was using sexism as an excuse for being upset that she wasn’t featured on Forbe’s list.

In her second Twitch stream, AOC hilariously explained how experiencing Elo Hell in League of Legends helped her develop the patience required for being a congresswoman.

U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, affectionally known as AOC, has been open about how much she loves League of Legends in the past. The proud politician even stunned her fans and followers when she revealed she finally made Silver IV.

It might have been her first foray into the minds and hearts of gamers around the world, but it certainly wasn’t the last. In October, AOC made history when hundreds of thousands of viewers tuned in to watch her play Among Us on Twitch for the very first time.

AOC was so well-loved among streamers and viewers, they begged her to come back for a second stream. It finally happened on November 27, and it was as wholesome and entertaining as the first.

AOC’s first ever Among Us stream on Twitch was a smash hit.

At one point during the stream, Ryan ‘Northernlion’ Letourneau asked AOC an interesting question about her League of Legends experience and her response was both understandable and hilarious.

“Do you think having to keep your cool in League of Legends chat has helped your political career when it comes to maintaining some decorum in Congress?” asked Northernlion.

“Yeah, I think so,” said AOC. “Getting caught in Elo Hell really requires so much patience. I was playing with 12-year-olds… rage quitting five minutes into a game… so it really builds your patience.”

Elo Hell is a term used to describe situations where players and their rankings are dragged down due to incompetent and toxic teammates. It’s something League of Legends players know all too well, including AOC.

AOC has always managed to come across as down-to-earth. Still, it’s comforting and kind of funny to hear an esteemed congresswoman talk about something so relatable, especially to gamers.

Elo Hell in League of Legends is the absolute pits, but at least we now know it counts for something.
