YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s ‘Bitch Lasagna’ diss track toward Bollywood label T-Series is the most viewed video on his channel – but the Swede may have topped his last song with a new hit.

Kjellberg uploaded another diss track titled ‘Congratulations’ on March 31, nearly five days after T-Series surpassed him in subscribers on March 26.

As suggested by the title, PewDiePie’s song mockingly “congratulated” T-Series on their victory, placing emphasis on the label’s status as a mega corporation and even claiming that they’d gained their success with shady business practices.

“…All it took/ was a massive corporate entity with every song in Bollywood,” PewDiePie rapped. “Now you’re at number one, hope you did nothing wrong/ Like starting your business by selling pirated songs.”

PewDiePie went on to jokingly accuse T-Series’ CEO, Bhushan Kumar, of tax evasion and having ties with the Indian mafia, later telling a story in which the label sent him a cease and desist letter for defamation.

Even popular YouTuber MrBeast made a surprise appearance toward the end of the video, likely due to his massive contributions toward PewDiePie’s channel with his citywide ad campaign and viral Super Bowl stunt.

PewDiePie’s latest diss track was made with the help of YouTubers ‘Boyinaband’ and ‘Roomie,’ who gave fans a behind the scenes look into the song’s creation with their own respective videos on the topic.

According to Boyinaband, T-Series’ had actually sent PewDiePie a cease and desist letter, although he made sure to save the meat of the story for Kjellberg to discuss in a later video.

While ‘Bitch Lasagna’ sits at over 169 million views, it’s not out of place to say that ‘Congratulations’ will follow a similar pattern; however, unlike Kjellberg’s other major videos about T-Series, his subscriber count continues to falter, with T-Series pulling ahead by over 110,000 subscribers as of March 31.

FlareTV, YouTubeAs of March 31, T-Series sits at over 100,000 subscribers above PewDiePie, marking a wide divide between their channels that has PewDiePie saying, “Congratulations.”

Despite his apparent loss, some PewDiePie fans refuse to accept defeat, and are even formulating a last-minute ‘International PewDiePie Day’ campaign in an attempt to squash T-Series for good.

Call of Duty

Dr Disrespect calls out Activision & Warzone tourney admins for hacker drama

Following scandal over a disqualified cheater in a Warzone tournament, Dr Disrespect is calling out Activision’s lack of an anti-cheat and Twitch Rivals’ lack of a formal process for investigating hacks.

In hours of drama that rocked the competitive Call of Duty: Warzone community, a smaller streamer, ‘Metzy_B,’ was accused of cheating during the $250K Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl tournament. Prior to the final match of the event, his team was disqualified by tournament admins and stripped of any chance at tournament earnings.

Twitch Rivals have remained relatively quiet on the issue, practically ignoring it during the broadcast and offering up a minimally worded explanation over Twitter. In their explanation, the admins simply explained that Metzy “was ruled to be cheating” and subsequently “removed from the event.”

With that lack of transparency, rumors and accusations flew. Former Call of Duty League pro, one of the highest Warzone earners currently, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren spent hours interrogating the accused and having a friend take control of Metzy’s PC to dive through his logs for any proof of hacks. This all leads to Dr Disrespect asserting that, with or without an Activision anti-cheat, tournament organizers need to do better.

As shared by ‘WickedGoodGames,’ the Two-Time has a clear perspective on this issue. If the developers can’t institute an effective anti-cheat, then every single tournament must “define a process in finding out if he is [cheating] or not … obviously outside of the whole Call of Duty not having an anti-cheat kind of software built in.”

The drama was obviously divisive, as most participants in the tournament believed Metzy (and others) to be cheating, while others weren’t so sure. With no one knowing precisely how Twitch handled the situation, the community was left to investigate themselves.

As Dr Disrespect has heard, the “purple snakes” disqualified Metzy based on “a couple suspicious clips” and without asking to check his computer. This is echoed by the accused himself, who has since commended Tommey for trying to figure out what the admins had failed to.

That account goes directly against others, as fellow competitor BobbyPoff reacted by alleging that Metzy was, in fact, originally reluctant to display his task manager logs.

While the truth may be impossible to find at this point, as Twitch Rivals have given no explanation of their process and any number of files could have been deleted by the time Tommey got access, Dr Disrespect’s point is proven by the drama.

If Activision can’t deliver a functioning anti-cheat and tournament organizers don’t have a strict, transparent policy for hackers — then community infighting over a “grey area” is unavoidable.
