EVERYONE Is Talking About The PewDiePie vs KSI Beef
19 April 2016, 14:25
Which side of the argument do YOU fall on?
Over the past few days, the YouTube community has been absolutely GRIPPED with drama. Two of the most prominent and influential gaming YouTubers have spoken out about their feelings towards the amount of drama and gossip in the community, each with varying degrees of severity. However from two very different, very personal videos, a whole pile of Twitter beef has been taking place as the Internet decides who was right - PewDiePie or KSI? (Some people agree with DramaAlert, but we'll get to that later)
TL;DR: PewDiePie thinks everyone should stop talking and making videos about drama (a.k.a DramaAlert/H3H3), but this has in turn created more drama. KSI responded by saying that PewDiePie spoke out of turn and should not have monetised his video calling out people who make money off 'drama' videos - but did KSI end up monetising his own response?! KeemStar picked up on the story and now it's freaking everywhere.
Below, we have some tweets from YouTube creators and the general public regarding the YouTube beef happening RN to help you form your own opinion on the matter. Vote in our poll below to let us know which side of the argument you fall on!

The @pewdiepie "YouTube Drama" video is very interesting to me. I agree and disagree on some points. Think I need to mull it over a bit.— Philip DeFranco (@PhillyD) April 16, 2016
KSI's video about the state YouTube was difficult to watch. I've never seen anyone try and fail so badly to articulate a stupid point.— Hazel Hayes (@TheHazelHayes) April 17, 2016
in memory of ksi, he aint dead but by roasting felix and mark he might as well be— bec (@oldyelIer) April 17, 2016
On KSI's side:
No point in arguing with pewdiepie u could be right but u wont win. He has an army of 40 million 10 year olds who dont care about whos right— Anthony (@OMGItsBirdman) April 17, 2016
@pewdiepie why are you just adding more drama if you're so opposed to it?— Bev (@JBeville_) April 17, 2016
My thoughts on the PewdiePie vs KSI / Drama - "Hey lets make a video about youtube drama, oh look $10,000 in ad rev" "LETS MAKE MORE DRAMA!"— BDTV (@xbdtvx) April 18, 2016
