The Homophobic Reason Why a YouTube Gamer Was Kicked Out of His Home

By  | 

Being the current top YouTuber, PewDiePie has to deal with haters on a daily basis. But while Felix Kjellberg is fully prepared to ignore trolls online, there’s no way he could’ve expected the type of hate he recently faced.

The 26-year-old YouTube gamer recently revealed that he and his longtime girlfriend Marzia Bisognin were forced to leave their apartment in Brighton, UK, after their landlord “thought [Felix] was having gay sex” loudly and called him a homophobic slur. The YT star tweeted:

“To be clear: I made a video, landlord thought I was having gay sex. Comes down to call us f*ggots. Next day evicted w/o previous notice.”

Because the initial noise complaint came as he and his friends were filming a video, they actually caught this anti-gay interaction on camera.

As Felix said in the video, he is lucky because he has “the resources” to quickly move to a new place, but for other people getting evicted without notice could easily “throw them out on the streets.” The Swedish star also confirmed he at one point “was planning to fight against the situation,” but has “more important s*it to deal with” and just wants to “move far away from that guy.”

Despite his understandable frustration, the gamer ultimately had a sense of humor in the end and left his followers with this gem:

If he really wanted to, PewDiePie could’ve definitely taken legal action against his landlord. If that was the case, he would’ve joined the list of YouTube stars who were involved with serious lawsuits:
