YouTube sensation Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg recently uploaded a TwitchCon compilation video, where the Swede hilariously reacted to some of the most awkward moments from this year’s event.
While Kjellberg made fun of Fortnite fans, the Doritos bowl and Ninja, the Swede spent the largest portion of his video talking about Michael ‘mmDust’ Duarte.
The streamer became the focus on the internet’s attention after comments he made at a TwitchCon panel, where he stated: “It’s kind of like low-key god complex, [but] I don’t think many of my viewers should relate themselves to me because I do think of myself as better.
“There’s no good way to say this – I think of myself as above the average person, so I don’t think many people could relate to me.”
“I think that what makes this clip so great is that he knows he’s not supposed to say it,” began PewDiePie. “If you’re ever in that moment, don’t cross the border.[ad name=”article3″]
“I just love how you’re a streamer, the kind of person that relies on donations from other people. You’re basically begging other people for money but you’re still better than other people.
“I’m going to out on a limb and say no, you’re not. You’re 100% not better than the average person. Anyone who thinks they are better than the average person are 100% not better than the average person,” concluded PewDiePie.
PewDiePie said that he believes if Duarte had made the comment in jest nobody would have cared, but trying to justify it by admitting there was “no good way” to say it made it look worse.
