PewDiePie appeared to jokingly mock Paul’s recent Flat Earth ‘documentary’ in a video on March 23, where he reviewed funny images captured on Google Maps’ Street View.
“Some people - some dumb-balls - still think the Earth is flat,” PewDiePie began, showing a photo of Logan Paul in the background. “My god. How can you be so stupid? Logan Paul, that’s right - disappointed.”
This isn’t the first time Kjelleberg has thrown shade toward Paul, either; he likewise appeared to take shots at the YouTuber after “agreeing” to wear an article of Maverick merchandise in exchange for Paul’s help in fending off T-Series.
PewDiePie had admitted to giving Paul the address to a Swedish craft shop, rather than his home address - and even compared his efforts to those of Markiplier, who came to his aid in an emergency livestream just at T-Series appeared to take the victory.

Paul has since revealed his controversial Flat Earth ‘mockumentary,’ which duped users across the internet after being advertised as a serious, in-depth look into the Flat Earth community.
Instead, Paul’s ‘documentary’ plays out more like a lengthy comedy sketch, including some hilarious moments mixed in with faux-dramaticized cuts (a la Shane Dawson’s famed docuseries).
After Paul’s project went live, the director of the Flat Earth International Conference appeared to take issue with the film, claiming that he had been “punked” into letting Paul document the event.
“Another thing that he outright lied about was the fact that he was going to be doing a documentary,” the organizer said of the film. “...quite honestly, I was punked. I was duped.”

Paul himself claimed to have “gone undercover” to become “one with the Flat Earthers” for the project, and even teased being a Flat Earther, himself - although it doesn’t look like he’ll be welcomed into their fold anytime soon.
