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.
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.
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.”600
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.
