I don’t know who you are, âwhile referencing a popular Thanos meme from Avengers Endgame.

Kjellberg says he would always listen to an artist whose music has strongly influenced him in the past, even if they had to publicly disown him.
Additionally, he postulates that many people online seem to hate the âPewDiePie ideaâ after only seeing negative media coverage of him. Kjellberg ends the video by asking his viewers not to hate the artists mentioned in the video before discussing his intention to donate his monthly income from live streaming on YouTube to the Lebanese Red Cross in the aftermath of the disaster. of Beirut, which he does with different charities each month.
