Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, and so often attracts ‘stream snipers to his games, but not the stream snipers you would expect.

Stream snipers are usually a nuisance for big streamers, particularly those who play battle royale games like PUBG and Fortnite.

For shroud though, stream snipers are less of a nuisance and more a source of entertainment for his viewers – singing songs, giving him weapons and ammo, and even promoting his PUBG skins.

Shroud’s stream snipers have even promoted his skins in the past.

While playing the new update on the test servers for PUBG, shroud ran into possibly the most incredible stream sniping moment yet.

Dropping into the map, shroud was quickly surrounded by a host of stream snipers, who proceeded to protect him at all costs.

As an enemy attempted to approach him, shroud unleashed his legion of trusty fans, who mowed down the opponent in the name of their master.

And they weren’t done there, as they continued to trail shroud for the remainder of the game, providing assistance and moral support.

Stream sniping is still very much frowned upon, and games like PUBG and Fortnite will even ban players found to be guilty of stream sniping.

But for shroud, stream snipers have taken on a whole new form, and he likely doesn’t object to these hilarious, less malicious kind.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
