YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is taking what could be his last stand against Bollywood label T-Series in a dramatic way – by playing Fortnite.

PewDiePie went live on February 3, just as his subscriber count went neck-and-neck with T-Series in a last-ditch effort to defeat his Bollywood nemesis.

His game of choice? Fortnite – which he previously admitted might help him overtake the label, due to its overwhelming popularity.

So far, his plan appears to be working; PewDiePie managed to soar nearly 90,000 subs above his enemy within the first hour of streaming – a massive jump, considering that the two were just over 50,000 subscribers apart at the beginning of his stream, and merely 29k apart before news of their proximity made the rounds.

PewDiePie is also set to appear in a commercial during the 2019 Super Bowl, thanks to popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson.

This isn’t the first time MrBeast has pulled out all the stops for PewDiePie, either; the YouTuber likewise created a citywide ad-campaign in October of 2018 during a similar situation, bumping Pewd’s subscriber count over 36,000 within the first hour of his video going live.

In fact, Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem likewise went live in an attempt to help the Swede, managing to send a reported 23k subscribers his way before Pewds began his Fortnite debut.

PewDiePie’s war against T-Series began in late 2018, with the label projected to surpass the YouTuber by early 2019. 

Thanks to the efforts of multiple YouTubers, internet personalities, and even celebrities, it looks like Pewds may be able to stave off T-Series’ takeover for a little while longer.


UPDATE: PewDiePie has reached 83 million subscribers following his Fortnite stream – although T-Series remains close behind.

Footage emerges of Bryce Hall in restaurant brawl over a vape

Footage has emerged online of TikTok star Bryce Hall involved in yet another restaurant brawl, just weeks after going viral for a street fight in West Hollywood.

On October 4, Bryce released footage of him in a street fight, and his fans and critics alike came together to call out his actions and explain why it wasn’t acceptable.

Now, barely two weeks later, Bryce finds himself in yet another brawl, but this time the video was leaked before he could share it himself, which he said he did in the first fight because he didn’t want media outlets “misrepresenting” it if they report it first.

Late on October 20, footage came out of Bryce involved in an altercation at a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles — and the alleged reason behind it is very bizarre.

Bryce has found himself in a spot of bother once again.

As TMZ reports, you can see Bryce involved in the scrap, right in the thick of things, and according to them, it all kicked off because of a vape.

It’s illegal to vape at restaurants in LA, something Bryce and co. apparently didn’t care to hear when asked to stop, with Bryce allegedly blowing smoke in staff’s face when asked to stop. Then, according to TMZ, things came to a head when Bryce’s card was taken to make his payment after being asked to leave.

One source apparently said that Bryce and his friends jumped an employee, with the star himself throwing the first punch, while Bryce refutes those claims and says that a manager grabbed him and tried to drag him away, before kicking him.

In the original report, it’s also stated that one of the staff members involved suffered a broken hand, and named Bryce as his attacker in a police report that followed the ordeal.

Obviously, there are two sides to this story, but Bryce’s track record and reputation is working against him — and if the restaurant staff decide to press charges, we’re likely to find out the truth one way or another.
