PewDiePie Slams Pokimane's Streaming Setup

On Aug. 19, popular content creator PewDiePie returned to judging other creator's setups and home tours, starting the stream with the hyper-successful Pokimane's house. PewDiePie had a lot to say about how she streams. However, he did make it clear up top that he was going to be "overly critical for no reason but entertainment." In other words, it was all for fun's sake and not personal.


Pewdiepie started off by criticizing Pokimane's door, which is made of glass, because it could result in "terrible audio leakage." Once the video got to her actual streaming setup, his disappointment was clear. PewDiePie mentioned that her displays look "uncomfortable" because of how far back the monitors sat on her desk and how small they were. To emphasize just how small her monitors were, he showed viewers his own ultra wide monitor, which spanned the entirety of his desk.

While mentioning that he "just can't get over her displays," PewDiePie caught a glimpse of something else to stress over: Pokimane's cable management, or lack thereof. He said that she "lost setup privilege" over the disastrous cords, and it quickly became all he could focus on. He ended the video with recommendations for her poor cable management.


Though PewDiePie had a lot of criticism for Pokimane's setup, he also had plenty of nice things to say as well — and Pokimane didn't let this go without a response.

PewDiePie's compliments were just as abundant

Although some of PewDiePie's jabs might have seemed a bit harsh, he still had plenty of good things to say about Pokimane's home tour.

The first thing he liked was her stairs — apparently, he thought they looked "comfortable." He also loved her Rilakkuma stuffed animal, which she held throughout most of the video. PewDiePie appreciated the lights in Pokimane's set-up, and noted that the same set-up strangely didn't work as well for him as it did for her. He also gave Pokimane "points" for the ergonomics of her setup. While her monitors were smaller than his, he noted that this wasn't necessarily a bad thing, and that they were the correct height for a person's eyes, meaning it was suitable for long gaming sessions


Luckily for fans of the streamer, Pokimane responded to PewDiePie's comments pretty swiftly. In a clip shared by Offline Network, Pokimane shouted, "I know! Stop judging me." Overall, she seemed to take the comments in stride, jokingly apologizing for her cable management. As fans know, Pokimane has put quite a bit of money and time into her streaming operation, so she's not about to let a few loose cables ruin her day.
