PewDiePie has just finished taking Twitter on an absolute rollercoaster ride of ridiculousness. After his account became unverified, which we can’t decide happened thanks to Twitter or Felix himself, Pewds went crazy with his new (lack of) power and tweeted to millions of people that him and JackSepticEye were both joining ISIS.
As you can imagine the backlash has been divided between fans saying that it’s just Felix’s idea of humour and other viewers who believe that joke was one step too far – ISIS is, after all, not a laughing matter. Soon after Felix tweeted the fact that they had “joined ISIS”, Jack quickly replied to point out that the joke was meant to be about Nazi’s (you know, the OTHER racially aggressive group of extremists), and he wished PDP “good luck” in “explaining that one”.
It’s believed that Felix decided to tweet about his involvement with the terrorist group after being sent a parody article by the funny folks over at @SkyNeiws. With a headline that explains that Felix is now “unverified due to suspected relations with ISIS”, it’s no wonder that he continued with the joke.
Since the original tweet, the Bro Army have got numerous hashtags trending including #TwitterVerifyPewDiePieAgain and #SavePewDiePie to try and help Felix get his little blue tick back – but if you ask us, we think he’s having too much fun without all that responsibility. Plus, now he’s working with that stylish globe emoji. What a trend setter.
