No Winners in Pewdiepie vs Some Twitch Thot Fued

If you don’t know who Pewdiepie is, he’s sort of like a more popular, less irritating version of Jake Paul. Millions of people watch him be a dumbass on YouTube, and while Pewdiepie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, is a lot less of a dumbass than Jake Paul, he’s still a pretty major dumbass. It wasn’t even a year ago he was in the headlines for saying the n-word while streaming a video game, just like Ninja did right after setting his Twitch record with Drake.

Recently, Felix did a video using eye-tracking software and his fans suggested a video of female Twitch streamers getting as naked as they possibly can without breaking Twitch’s terms of service. One of the women in the video, Alinity Divine, reacted to Pewdiepie’s video on her stream by freaking out when he turned the video off saying he wasn’t going to let the “stupid Twitch thots” win. She got really mad about him saying ‘thot’ and got up and ran into another room yelling “Copy strike Pewdiepie’s newest video right now!”

Turns out people aren’t happy about someone abusing YouTube’s copyright system to steal revenue from fair use of content (she was literally on-screen for two seconds in Felix’s video) because they don’t like something they said about it. Pewdiepie did a video about the whole situation after the fact, after she had taken the revenue from his original video.

Yeah, she explained on her stream how she uses a partner company, CollabDRM, to issue copyright claims against videos that are critical of her content or say mean things, then when it blew up in her face because Pewdiepie has like 60 million subscribers to his YouTube channel, she claimed she didn’t do anything and CollabDRM made its copyright claim against Pewdiepie’s channel without her knowledge and she would never use copyright law on transformative videos even though she literally said she makes $700 a month doing exactly that and was going to do it to Felix’s video to teach him a lesson about calling her a thot.

I don’t know where anyone would get the idea that she’s a thot, honestly. The nerve of some people.

I honestly hate everyone involved in this story, including Google. YouTube drama is one of the least-interesting things in the world. It’s like watching a bad reality TV show except you have to flip between 100 different channels to see it and in the end, if I’m going to spend my time watching thots get mad about stupid bullshit, I may as well be watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Seriously, anytime there’s YouTube drama, all the biggest YouTubers weigh in on it.

I could find probably a thousand more videos on this subject, and I would have time to watch them all waiting for JonTron to make a new video, which is a shame because his content is actually good. I’ll give you my opinion on this in text that you can read in 20 seconds, to save you having to watch me do 30 act-outs and vamp until I hit 10 minutes because you get less advertiser revenue if your video is shorter than that. And you can’t send me a copyright strike if you don’t like it, unless you’re Danny Masterson.

Pewdiepie is annoying and I don’t understand why anyone likes him. Thot is a decent description of Alinity. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. As I’ve said many times in the past, I don’t understand the concept of slut-shaming, no one ever bought a ticket to see someone play the piano for the first time. YouTube’s copyright system is a mess because YouTube doesn’t care about content creators, even huge ones like Pewdiepie, they only care about keeping advertisers happy and testing algorithms they can license for way more money than they make from advertising anyway. Google clearly has no interest in protecting free speech, they will side with literally any corporate interest over even their largest content creators.

Pewdiepie is a good honest person who sometimes has lapses in judgment. While Alinity and maybe even Pewdiepie didn’t come out looking great, throughout the whole drama Pewdiepie took time to shout out smaller channels like L of the Day and https://www.twitch.tv/itsskylol/. Pewdiepie probably didn’t have to make a video about Alinity and expose her to an audience of people who he probably expected would troll her, but he also exposed these smaller channels which have blown up so I think they at least won. They didn’t expect anything from exploiting the situation and just did a video for their… Read more »

I’ve never seen such informal and opinion based reporting. Journalism is literally a joke at this point.

i agree, pewds is very annoying, but its very refreshing, with time you get to see that he is probably the only one doing videos because he likes them, money is not in his mind when making videos, and he is not interested in “looking like the good guy” either, thats your answer thats what ppl like about him. regarding the alinity drama, this just grew up too much, alinity knew she could get money and tried to steal it that should not have happened, and everything before that is just stupid, but it gets clicks even for you who… Read more »

This article feels like it was written by a Highschooler who wanted to finish an assignment as quickly and with as little knowledge of the subject as possible. It was just constant fluff and incomprehensible opinions with little logic to back them up.

Its piece of shit publicist like you that make honest hard working publicist look fucking ignorant. Pewdiepie has been in this YouTube game for sometime. He is number one for a reason. Pewds makes people like u look fucking stupid you really should just quit your jobs and let pewdiepie do it for u. He is so much smarter than you. I have only been a fan of his for 4-5 months and can tell he knows his shit about YouTube. So before you blast someone that knows what they are talking about you should really know the facts. Hey… Read more »

Just finished reading this. What a pile of utter garbage.
Twitch THOTs like Amouranth and Alinity profit off of sitting at a computer and doing nothing but showing their tits to the camera, and they’re ruining the reputations of ACTUAL female Twitch streamers.
You did barely any research for this topic, and the end result is another wood log for the SJW dumpster fire.
Fuck off, Eric. And leave people who actually care about streaming services alone.
