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.


Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
