Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has been fighting a huge battle in the race to 100 million subscribers for over a year, but T-Series have now proved that they’re here to stay in top spot – finally clinching the astonishing milestone.

The Swedish content creator had drafted in celebrity guests, powered through key milestone after milestone in 2018 and 2019, but the biggest landmark of them all has been clinched by his Bollywood rival channel.

This battle had some huge twists and turns along the way, with Pewds springing into what was thought to be unstoppable positions time and time again, but defeat in the greatest subscriber race the platform has ever seen has now been confirmed.

PewDiePie, YouTubePewDiePie might have beaten T-Series to a lot of YouTube milestones, but he missed out on the big one.

Announcing the news on their official Twitter account, T-Series thanked all of the people that have subscribed to their channel in order to build what is now the world’s biggest YouTube channel.

“T-Series has achieved another YouTube milestone by being the first one to cross an astonishing 100 Million Subscribers,” they tweeted on May 29. “Thank you for being part of our journey. T-Series – Making India Proud.”

The Indian production company have been calling upon more and more of their nation’s population to subscribe to their channel for quite some time, following several diss tracks from PewDiePie that led to surges in his popularity on more than one occasion. 

The diss tracks, called ‘Bitch Lasagna’ and ‘Congratulations’, have since been blocked in India after T-Series took legal action against to have the content made unavailable in their country, not taking too kindly to the lyrics.

PewDiePie might have completed some sensational comebacks during the race to 100 million – once recovering a lead of 100,000 – but live sub counts show that his channel is now around four million subscribers away from top spot at the time of writing – which T-Series, of course, now occupies. 

The likelihood of T-Series being knocked off their perch any time soon remains extremely unlikely, but there’s no doubt that PewDiePie’s fanbase will pull out all of the stops in trying to help him reclaim his throne.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
