Since YouTube pretty much took over the internet, started breeding celebs in a matter of moths and generally turned into a mega monster of fame, fortune and millions of viewers, it's unsurprisingly become a bit of an online breeding ground for drama tbh.

But y'know shizz is getting serious when PewDiePie weighs in on a debate, and his response to the fascination with YT gossip has ironically resulted in yet MORE drama, as he's gone head to head with KSI about it all.

PewDiePie aka Felix's video, uploaded earlier this week, was made to highlight just how much drama has taken over the Youtube community. He said pretty simply: "I can't think of anything more stupid to waste your time on, but it seems that the Internet would disagree with me on that one".

He reckons that recent events have "created this mob mentality, where everyone is so on edge and…so ready to attack their next target of someone f*cking up".

Felix doesn't just blame the fans though, as he also addressed creators too by saying: "Every time, there seems to be more YouTubers getting involved because they know talking about the topic is gonna get them more views and attention".

But while slamming YouTube drama as a whole, Pewds accidentally ignited a load more drama, with fellow famous internet person KSI uploading a video just one day later in response to Felix's opinion.

Questioning what the point of PewDiePie's video really was, KSI pointed out: "PewDiePie talked about how YouTubers are jumping on these 'drama topics' because they know it's going to get them more views… but haven't you JUST done that?!". 

Err, he's got a point actually.

And following THAT response, Felix then fought back over on Twitter with a more direct, slightly more personal comment about KSI. Awkies.

CRIKEY.

That went well, then. What are your thoughts on all of this YouTube drama discussion? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
