YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was floored after discovering that his Minecraft account had been hacked. The Swedish star’s latest upload was interrupted when he realized trolls had compromised his in-game character.

In 2019, PewDiePie made his epic return to gaming with the launch of his wildly popular Minecraft series. The Swede even created a cast of characters and a story for the YouTube series, before concluding it in May.

On September 16th, the star decided to revisit the sandbox game, however quickly discovered that his account had been hacked. The 30-year-old was left confused by the changes the trolls made to his character.

PewDiePie’s return to Minecraft began with a rough start when he immediately realized his in-game character looked different. “Wait what is this? What the hell is that? Sven, what happened to my f**king face!?” he exclaimed as he took a closer look at his player skin.

The creator joked that his character looked like a p**is, before removing his armor which revealed that the skin was now entirely a photo of him in real life. Pewds broke into laughter and said, “No, no! Sven don’t look at me. Why!? Who did this? How did this happen? Did someone hack my Minecraft account? Oh no, someone hacked my account!”

The YouTuber confirmed that his account had been indeed compromised, as someone had changed his login name and skin. He then confessed to his viewers that he had “the sh**tiest password.”

Kjellberg unfortunately realized that he would have to wait another 29 days before he could change his account name again. “No! Noooo! That’s just uncalled for, man. You can change my skin, but don’t change my name. Why would someone do this, and not change the password!?”

Over on the r/pewdiepiesubmissions subreddit, internet sleuths allegedly found a video of the hacker changing the YouTuber’s account. Although it’s not entirely clear at the time of writing whether this is legitimate.

While it’s likely that PewDiePie has lost his old Minecraft name forever, thankfully the prankster didn’t change his password or even worse – delete his account.

Despite the setback, the content creator resumed his return adventure with Sven, and even ventured into the Nether where he scored some incredibly dangerous Ender rocks.

Fitness YouTuber Bradley Martyn has revealed that he is seemingly being charged with a misdemeanor by the State of California for keeping his popular Zoo Culture gym open after new restrictions were put in place.

Bradley Martyn is well known for his popular fitness-based uploads and challenge videos, amassing a following of over 2.6 million subscribers on YouTube, and is regularly featured in the NELK Boys’ vlogs as well.

The YouTuber often films his vlogs and collaborates with other stars at his gym ‘Zoo Culture’ in Los Angeles County but he is now seemingly facing charges for keeping it open amid their latest lockdown.

Despite previously staging protests against the major restrictions with NELK star SteveWillDoIt, Bradley Martyn revealed, on October 22, that his gym had now been targeted and shared a brief clip of a court summons on his social media.

The fitness star claimed that it was issued by the State of California and shared that he would have to appear at his local courthouse to answer for misdemeanor charges made against Zoo Culture.

“People of the state of California VS Zoo Culture welcome to 2020, where gyms being open is criminal in California,” he added, reacting to the Zoo Culture court summons, “[and] where mental and physical health is deemed non-essential,” he followed up, suggesting that facilities such as gyms should be considered an essential service, for improving the health of those who use them.

 

After asking his fans what they thought of the matter, Martyn received mixed feedback from his followers, as there were some critics claiming that he should’ve simply abided by the restrictions that were imposed.

While other fans were in agreeance with the YouTuber, he will still have to answer for the charges and argue his case in court, following his latest actions.

The document also revealed that his court date was scheduled for November 23, so it is likely that we will have to wait until after the legal proceedings have concluded before more information is released.
