A small Twitch streamer was left stunned after receiving a donation from YouTube’s biggest content creator Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg. The Swedish star’s unexpected gift left the player speechless.

Over the last decade, PewDiePie has become the face of online entertainment for many viewers. The content creator went from his humble roots playing games in 2010, to amassing over 107 million subscribers to his channel in 2020.

The last thing a small Twitch streamer would expect is to run in to the popular personality. However, that is what happened to ‘BluWolfie123’ on September 21 when the YouTube king crashed his Among Us broadcast with a donation.

BluWolfie123 was in the middle of playing hit game Among Us for viewers when a donation flashed across his screen that said “pewdiepie donated $69.” The streamer was shocked when he realized the name attached to the gift.

“Holy s**t! Uh, PewDiePie’s donated $69!” he exclaimed. “Are you serious!?” his partner asked. Stunned, he replied, “Uh, that’s what it says!”

After it began to sink in, the streamer remarked, “That’s my first donation! I wonder if it’s actually PewDiePie? Holy f**k! Oh my God. That’s f**king insane. What the hell! Thank you so much, PewDiePie! I appreciate that. It’s my first donation, and it’s $69!”

On September 24, PewDiePie uploaded a video to his YouTube channel which featured him giving the donation. The star was doing an “If you laugh, you donate” challenge where if he lost, he would give money to a streamer.

After losing quickly, Kjellberg decided to look for someone playing Among Us on Twitch that had the least amount of viewers. “My first Twitch donation!” he said after sending $69 to BluWolfie123. He then smiled and broke into laughter after seeing the streamer’s stunned reaction. “Oh! I’m their first donation!” he yelled excitedly.

This isn’t the first time Pewds has been charitable. In 2020, the star has been giving away all of the money he makes from his YouTube streams to a new charity every month. “Proud to announce thanks to member revenue: I will be donating $136,919 to Blue Marine Foundation,” he wrote in early September.

The star has been donating his stream money to charities.

In May, PewDiePie announced he had signed a major deal with YouTube to stream exclusively on their platform. So far, his move to live entertainment has been a massive success.

Thousands tuned in to watch the Swede play The Last of Us 2 in June, and Ghost of Tsushima in July. Recently, he’s even pulled in over 170k viewers while broadcasting Among Us.

Jake Paul claims he’s hospitalized ahead of Mike Tyson undercard fight

YouTube star Jake Paul shook up the boxing world after being confirmed for the upcoming Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match — but his statement from a recent press conference is sparking rumors that he may not be fit to compete.

The youngest Paul brother boasts a short, if successful, boxing history; after defeating fellow influencer Deji on the undercard of Logan Paul’s August 2018 bout, Jake took his talents to the professional level, taking out YouTuber AnEsonGib in a first round KO in January 2020.

Now, Jake has been confirmed to fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson — but some are wondering if he’ll even appear in the ring.

An October 29 press conference saw an unexpected development from Jake’s side, with the YouTuber-turned-boxing pro appearing from what seemed to be a hospital room.

ESPN journalist Ariel Helwani was understandably taken aback by the scenery, and asked Jake where he was — which lead to a surprising, if a bit humorous, answer.

“Uh, I’m just chilling man, I came to the hospital to get a little check up,” he replied.

When asked why he was at the hospital, the YouTuber had an even more astonishing response: “We were having a little morning practice, and my team was afraid that I was turning into Iron Man. I punched a hole through a car.”

Needless to say, it seems like Robinson isn’t worried if his opponent will show up on fight night, claiming that Paul “has to show up” in spite of his purported injury.

However, some fans are claiming that they think Paul has a black eye, or even a broken nose, although his mask admittedly makes it a bit difficult to see if these alleged injuries are for real.

This isn’t the first time Jake has taken a trip to the hospital before a fight, and it may not be his last — but considering his ambition and near-constant training, fans can expect that he will turn up for the show (although whether he will “turn out” is still up in the air).
