Prije nekoliko dana je najavio pauzu u 2020., ali prije nego krene s tim, imao je još nešto za poručiti...
Može se reći da PewDiePie nije baš najbolje reagirao na vijest da je Tana Mongeau osvojila Streamy Awards za YouTube kreatora godine ispred Davida Dobrika, Emme Chamberlain i Lily Singh.
''Kada je Tana rekla: 'Ja ne zaslužujem nagradu', svi smo to osjetili'', krenuo je popularni youtuber priču u svom videu koji je objavio neki dan. Video je dosad pogledalo više od pet milijuna ljudi. PewDiePie se zatim narugao i načinom na koji je Tara primila svoju nagradu za kreatora godine.
i’ve spent the past few days staring at the ceiling replaying every moment of my career wondering how i got this far. honestly after intense contemplation, i have nothing.. as much as i am grateful for this award, i do not and never will feel like “creator of the year”. i’ve never met that mark, i’ve never fit that mold.. i’ve always been the misfit, the outcast, the fuck up.. matter of fact i’ve spent every second of my career KNOWING i’d never be creator of the year.. i held this exact award ONE YEAR AGO, floored that i was even accepting it on behalf of the person that saved my life.. i held it in my hands and said “i know all of you never expected to see me hold a creator of the year award”... for 365 days to go by and to be holding it as my own is the most full circle moment i’ll probably ever feel. it will never feel real. it will never feel like mine- it is yours. i’ve never been so sure that an award show is truly fan voted/not rigged- there is not one person in this industry that could’ve told you two days ago i’d be winning this award. and now they wanna say congratulations......... YOU did this.. i’d like to thank you on behalf of 13 year old me. she made iphone videos hoping that she’d make one of you forget the pain for even one second. she hoped the pain she’d felt would resonate with even one of you. she was just excited Casey Neistat was gonna read her name as a nominee. she would’ve sobbed seeing Shane Dawson cry on a PLATFORM THAT DIDN’T EVEN EXIST YET when he saved her life over an award SHE WON... to be honest i still feel i should be mailing this award to David or Mr. Beast or Emma... this one is for the people who never felt like they’d succeed. who never felt like they’d have a place. thank you for saving me time and time again. thank you for carrying me here. thank you for letting the ups and the downs help us grow. thank you for holding me accountable but cheering on my growth. thank you for growing with me and reminding me it’s okay to be flawed.. here’s to 2020 being for US.. oh and thanks to @jordanworona for believing in me when it was popular not to. i guess.
''Tako je skromna, ne osjeća se kao kreator godine, baš je prizemna, ona je baš kao mi - ne, doslovno ne zaslužuješ nagradu, zato se tako i osjećaš'', prokomentirao je sarkastično.
PewDiePie je cijelo vrijeme objašnjavao kako ovo nije 'rant' na Taru, već da ovo govori samo zbog toga što zna kako funkcionira dodjela ovih nagrada.
''Sve je to politika, bazira se na tome tko je tamo'', objasnio je youtuber i završio svoj video na način da je rekao kako je MrBeast, njegov prijatelj, koji je također bio nominiran, više zaslužio nagradu od nje.
Što vi mislite, hoće li ovo prerasti u novu veliku dramu na YouTube sceni ili je samo morao ovo izgovoriti?
