YouTube’s most subscribed creator, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, spoke out on popular YouTuber Lilly Singh’s announcement of her indefinite break from the platform in an episode of ‘Pew News’ on November 15.

PewDiePie admitted that he was “annoyed” with all the talk of mental health surrounding creators’ recent string of breaks from YouTube, claiming that BBC News had even reached out to him for comment on the issue.

“I’m getting a little annoyed by it,” he claimed. “I’m not gonna lie. It’s like, shut up. Shut up, children. Just take a break.”

PewDiePie went on to cite YouTube’s statement refuting concerns of potential channel decline during breaks, and encouraged YouTubers to step away from the platform should they feel overwhelmed – despite fears that they might lose subscribers.

He then stated that Singh’s announcement video was likely made to draw attention to her channel, claiming that the “best way to get people’s attention” is through a big announcement video.

“That’s the reason why she wanted to take a break to begin with,” he continued. “Probably, her channel isn’t doing as well, and probably she isn’t happy with what she’s making.”

PewDiePie also took issue with YouTubers’ need to “monetize everything,” and even predicted that “break announcement” videos could end up becoming a trend in the near future.

“Not every decision you make has to be for your YouTube channel,” he argued. “…It’s annoying seeing praise for making a statement about taking a break, because now, it’s just gonna be a further trend, I think.”

While Singh doesn’t know how long her break will last, she did admit that she will be making a return when she feels the time is right, and is currently seeking therapy in the interim.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
