Top YouTuber PewDiePie has returned from a well-earned break on his honeymoon, and will soon be back to be uploading to his channel, but his latest Instagram post has sparked a new demand from fans – Belle Delphine-inspired bathwater.

If unfamiliar, Belle Delphine is a now-former Instagram star and popular YouTuber herself, who made headlines earlier in 2019 for selling her used ‘Gamer Girl bathwater’ for $30 a tub.

She was later banned from Instagram, and PewDiePie’s latest post on the photo-sharing social media has drawn comparisons, as he is seen lounging in a bath on his honeymoon.

Belle Delphine / InstagramBelle Delphine caused controversy after selling her used bathwater in tubs for $30.

On returning from his trip, he posted an image showing him covered in petals and relaxing in a hot bath, and the comments are filled with jokes about packaging the water and selling it on for a price.

Back from Honeymoon!

Even YouTuber James Charles joined in, commenting “Belle Delphine is shaking”, while others asked, “How much for that bathwater Felix?” and ”Let me [buy] some bathwater please [I don’t care] if it costs extra with some of those flowers in it.”

The comments were filled with bathwater suggestions and jokes, even from James Charles himself.

Of course, as the number one YouTuber in the world, PewDiePie needs neither the money or attention that selling his own bathwater would bring, although Delphine’s enterprise did well, apparently selling 500 containers at $30 a pop.

She even went as far to sell an entire bathtub full, for a whopping $10,000.

Now that PewDiePie is home, his videos should return to their normal daily upload schedule, and he may even be inclined to respond to all the talk his now-infamous bath image.

He covered the Belle Delphine story on his channel in July, and just before leaving for his honeymoon, poked fun at her again telling an evil woman in a horror game to “take your bath water and go away!”

Belle Delphine is still banned from Instagram, and given the length of her suspension so far it appears to be permanent.

Hopefully, PewDiePie’s profile doesn’t meet the same fate after his own bathtub photos.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
