YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is calling out YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le’s apology video, where he addressed his partnership with an alleged gambling and scam website.

PewDiePie addressed RiceGum’s controversial involvement with ‘’ in a previous video on January 3, which RiceGum mentioned in his apology video explaining the debacle three days later.

Pewds took issue with RiceGum’s apology, calling it “the weakest response ever” and stating that both RiceGum and Jake Paul are solely concerned with money – not the welfare of their younger fans.

“Jake Paul and RiceGum don’t give a shit,” PewDiePie said of the issue. “They don’t care. They just want to make money. That’s all that matters to these people.”


PewDiePie went on to mock RiceGum’s Amazon gift code giveaway, appearing to legitimately question if the YouTuber was trolling his fans with the offer.

“$10 gift cards – that fixes the whole thing!” Pewds said sarcastically. “Imagine saying that you got over $100,000 and spending $500 being like, ‘We’re cool, right?’”

PewDiePie likewise noted that both YouTubers have yet to delete their videos promoting the website, speculating that they are contractually obligated to leave them up on their channels in order to get paid from the deal.

RiceGum has since found himself at the center of yet another scandal, after YouTuber ‘Good Day Sir’ found that four of the codes he’d offered had already been claimed in May of 2018. 


While RiceGum has since denied these claims, he has yet to respond to PewDiePie’s latest comments on the debacle.
