YouTube star Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg comically hit out at fans making memes on him after he made a classic mistake in Minecraft’s recent Nether update.

After diving into Minecraft’s recently released Nether update for his millions of subscribers, PewDiePie made a mistake with the newly added Netherite material that had fans poking fun at him.


In the Swede’s March 5 episode of Last Week I Asked You – a segment where he reacts to user submissions on his subreddit – the entertainer comically responded to viewers pointing out his mishap.

Reading his subreddit r/pewdiepiesubmissions, the YouTuber responded to posts cracking jokes about him previously mistaking Netherite for a Nether Brick during his March 31 Minecraft episode.


“PewDiePie saying he found Netherite. Minecraft pros knowing its Nether Brick,” he read aloud. He sarcastically replied, “I’m a Minecraft f**king veteran!” He then jokingly hit back at fans calling themselves pros.

“The update came out two days ago, so you’re a pro because you knew of a two day update? You all said it in my last video. You were like “oh he didn’t pick up the Netherite. It wasn’t! YOU CONFUSED ME!” he exclaimed.

The mishap all kicked off on his previous Minecraft upload when he went in search for Netherite – the rarest material in the sandbox title. The newly added item can be used to make the game’s most powerful weapons, tools, and armor.

After spending time exploring in search for the precious item, he got excited when a Piglin dropped a stack of material. “Oh! What! Noooo. Dude, fourteen!” he screamed after obtaining what he thought was Netherite.


Unfortunately it wasn’t, and it was a Nether Brick instead, which is less desirable. The mistake was understandable, as viewers claimed in a previous video that he had supposedly missed the material when that too was also a brick.

PewDiePie showed his sense of humor by sarcastically responding to the fans taking jabs at him – after all it wasn’t entirely his fault. If nothing else, this is an example of why you shouldn’t always trust comments.

The Swede continues to crush it on YouTube, amassing over 103 million subscribers to his channel. Gaming mistakes or not, his videos continue to draw in millions of views an upload.

A fake tweet of Lady Gaga trashing YouTuber Gabbie Hanna went viral on social media. Users were tricked into thinking the Grammy Award-winning artist had mocked the influencer over her looks.

Lady Gaga is not only one of the top artists in the world with countless number one singles and 11 Grammy wins, she also boasts over 82 million followers on her Twitter account.


On October 10, the singer went viral on the social media platform when she appeared to trash YouTuber Gabbie Hanna with a harsh tweet. Thing is, the post was 100% fake.

The whole firestorm started on October 10 when Gabbie Hanna tweeted out a side-by-side photo of herself and the pop star. The YouTuber compared her latest look to Gaga, stating, “twinning!! <3”


Not long after, the post exploded on Twitter, attracting both fans and critics. Before being deleted by the influencer, the tweet had received thousands of retweets and replies.

The YouTuber then went viral when a Gaga fan posted a fake tweet of the chart-topping singer supposedly reacting to Hanna’s comparison. “When an uglee stranger calls you twin. No B**ch,” the fake message read. Thousands of users retweeted the image, with many believing it to be real.

The fake tweet even contained a “response” from Katy Perry. Despite being a joke, the image took off on Twitter. At the time of writing, the post has over 389.k likes and 44.8k retweets.


This isn’t the first time the YouTube personality has brought up looking like Gaga. On Instagram, Hanna posted a story video where she claimed fans had been comparing her to the star lately. “I’ve been getting this a lot. People have not stopped saying ‘I’m getting Lady Gaga vibes. Oh my, god I thought this was Lady Gaga,'” she said.

Even though the tweet was clearly fake, some Twitter users actually thought it was real. Critics that knew it was a joke retweeted the image out of not being a fan of the influencer’s comparison.

If nothing else, the story is a good example of how even a troll post can quickly go viral on social media. It’s also a cautionary tale to stay away from making comparisons, as it can backfire spectacularly.
