Pewdiepie Hops Onto The BTS Train, Or Is It Just Clout?


World famous and top subscribed YouTuber, Pewdiepie, has somehow jumped onto the BTS ARMY train.

Back in 2018, BTS were actually following him on Twitter. Yet, they did unfollow him shortly after.

Though, It has been a year and some things have changed. 

Just recently, Pewdiepie's Twitter (@pewdiepie) has changed its bio to something that caused an uproar in his Twitter feed.

And if you notice, he's only following BTS. Yet, there is more to this short-lived story.

Yesterday, he posted about Jimin's dimples. (with some noice pics might I add)

Obviously, the uproar returned in the comments. 

Everyone was so excited to finally see Pewdiepie embracing Kpop once again.

We finally recruited another ARMY to join us... Or so we thought.

Later that day, another post from 2018 was dug up. Which threw his clout reputation back up.

If you don't know what I mean by clout, clout means that you use something to gain popularity. Just like JoJo Siwa using BTS's Idol for views. Or like YouTube Rewind 2018, obviously using BTS for clout as well.

(he didn't even correct the lowercase 'p' at the beginning)

It's one thing to take someone's idea, but to copy and paste an entire tweet. Even the pictures!

The user even stated, "A family that supports a lawsuit stays together"

 The Conclusion ☽

Copying and pasting tweets, especially about something that is popular at the moment, can boost the clout-o-meter to 100. I do have to show some support though, he did make a video showing his love for the boys and other kpop artists like G-Dragon from BigBang.

He has always liked BTS, even after they were famous. There was an old video of him playing while talking about RM.

He's doing it for the LOLs, he has said in the past that he likes kpop/BTS but also loves to be in for the joke. He's a cool guy tbh and also Jiminie's dimples are adorable AF hahahaha
