Popular gaming YouTubers Mark ‘Markiplier’ Fischbach and Seán ‘Jacksepticeye’ McLoughlin are facing major flak for their latest clothing line – and YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has finally given his two cents on the scandal.

Mark and Jack introduced their minimalist clothing line, ‘Cloak,’ on October 19, advertising it as a specialty brand for gamers in comparison to names like ‘Lululemon’ and ‘Nike.’ While many fans praised their latest project, others took issue with the line’s hefty price point and simplistic design scheme.

PewDiePie addressed issue during an episode of ‘Pew News’ on December 2, citing his own experience in creating clothing brands and merchandise in solidarity with his contemporaries.

He explained that producing ‘ethical’ clothing, such as he and fiance Marzia’s brand, ‘Tsuki,’ warrants a high price point, and argued that those looking for cheaper clothes would end up receiving a cheaper product, overall.

“If you want to go to Wal-Mart and buy shirts, just go ahead,” Pewds said. “…it’s not designer, and if you don’t want that, sure, it’s fine, but you’re not gonna get the same quality …or any designs that set it apart.”

PewDiePie went on to argue that ‘Cloak’s’ controversial, minimalistic design “sets it apart” from other brands, and noted that the brand’s widespread criticism largely spread from Mark and Jack’s relatively young fanbase.

However, other YouTubers have likewise criticized the brand, with Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem being among them. KEEMSTAR accused Mark and Jack of “taking advantage” of their fans, calling the ‘Cloak’ brand, “high-priced bs” in a Tweet on November 29.

TikTok stars Bryce Hall and Addison Rae were once the internet’s most buzzed-about couple; but after the two broke it off in September, it’s been unclear whether they might get back together in the future.

It’s been almost a year since ‘Braddison’ took the net by storm; The two influencers frequently appeared in each other’s TikToks and social media posts, quickly sparking rumors that the two were dating on the down-low.

While they never confirmed their relationship status — with Addison even claiming they were not involved, whatsoever — the two broke off whatever was going on between them “off social media,” leaving shippers in shambles.

However, it’s clear that Bryce Hall isn’t over his pseudo-romance with Rae (who is one of TikTok’s highest-earning creators), as evidenced by a lie detector test taken in collaboration with the Vlog Squad’s Jason Nash.

It’s worth noting that polygraph tests are not always correct, with a report from the National Academy of Sciences claiming that there is “little basis for the expectation that a polygraph test could have extremely high accuracy.”

That didn’t stop the Sway House from taking the test for entertainment purposes, anyway, prompting Nash to ask the question on everyone’s minds: “Do you want Addison back?”

Hall initially laughed at the query but openly admitted that he did, indeed, want to get back with the Southern belle — prompting the test proctor to announce that his statement was, in fact, true.

Needless to say, this caused quite an outrage among the Sway House members, with Josh Richards even getting up from the sofa to run out of the room yelling, “Oh my god! Holy s**t!”

It’s unclear whether or not ‘Braddison’ will ever be a thing again: Considering that Addison seems to keep her love life close to the chest, as well as being constantly harassed on social media, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the two keep a potential rekindling of their romance off the books.

For now, all fans can do is watch and wait for a response from Rae after Hall’s soul-baring answer to one of TikTok’s most burning questions.
