Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has said that Yousef ‘Fousey’ Erakat shouldn’t be a YouTuber following the ‘disastrous’ “Hate Dies, Love Arrives” event in Los Angeles on July 15, which was shut down early after a bomb threat.
Many YouTubers, including Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem, Philip DeFranco and PewDiePie slammed the "Hate Dies, Love Arrives" show, with the Swedish star criticizing Fousey after the entertainer insinuated that music icon Drake would be attending the Greek Theatre. He also suggested that the event was conceived to promote Fousey’s new diss track.
In a video titled “This is why you shouldn’t be a YouTuber // Fouseytube”, Pewdiepie also compared the event to Tana Mongeau’s “TanaCon", a convention that was cancelled after just one day where fans were left standing outside for hours.
“As you may have already imagined, this event follows a lot of similarities to TanaCon,” said Pewdiepie.” Promises of people appearing that didn’t really happen, and by ‘really’ I mean ‘not at all’. Fousey had been hyping that Drake was gonna be there. He never technically said it but it was insinuated and the thoughts bought it as well”.
PewDiePie shared clips where attendees shared their hopes of seeing everyone from Snoop Dogg to J. Cole. Of course, none of these artists did attend, and the Greek Theatre was eventually evacuated following a bomb threat.
Following the premature closure of the event, Fouseytube gave a lengthy speech in the parking lot, before releasing his new song, a diss track against Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le, PewDiePie called Fouseytube egotistical, claiming that the show was “all to hype up his song”
At the end of the video, he said:
“Fousey, if you’re watching, I’m sure you are, hello, how are you doing? You literally just appear needy, egotistic, and like a complete moron,
“We’re really seeing this more and more now with YouTubers, that once were big, grasping to anything for the relevancy,
“Fousey, I would encourage yourself to ask yourself why do you want all these things? Why do you want the song to be the hot hundred? Why do you want it to get this many views? Why did you make it? What was the point of it? Because I think, until you’re honest with yourself and answer those questions, you’re just gonna keep falling in the same trap over and over and over”
