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.

A bizarre clip of a Call of Duty streamer has emerged, where the player fired a full magazine of a gun out of his window after dying in Warzone, during his Twitch stream.

In an intense online game, particularly battle royales like Warzone, it’s all too easy to get increasingly frustrated when games don’t go your way.

However, one Twitch streamer, who was playing under the “Faze sWiisH” gamer tag, took his post-game rage a bit too far, by taking a break from his Warzone session to empty out a full clip of his gun on-stream.

Warzone has become quite competitive since its release on March 10.

During the streamer’s broadcast, his character was killed by an enemy in-game and, while he could still wait for his Duo to buy him back him at the nearest Buy Station, he proceeded to walk towards his window in the background of the stream.

After opening the window, the streamer picked up a semi-automatic pistol, firing a full magazine directly outside and placing the gun on the table before returning to his stream.

He continued to finish out the Duos session on Warzone but the clip stirred up a lot of controversy online in the following hours, with many discussing the streamer’s actions on Reddit.

Shortly after the clip was shared, an image of what was outside the streamer’s window emerged, highlighting that behind his house (the direction he fired) appears to be a large open field area, so hopefully, no person or property was at risk of being hit.

Despite the fact that the surrounding area seemed to be clear of people, his actions are still against the livestreaming platform’s community guidelines and can be punished by Twitch’s moderation team.

The clip has since been removed from Twitch but as of now, it is unclear whether this was the result of a ban from the platform or if it was the streamer’s doing.
