Netizens seemed surprised and unhappy with the decision to give the viewer-decided award to her. Much of the criticism suggested that she didn't really deserve the award, given her videos don't typically have the highest production value. Some even said that Mongeau is somewhat known for just switching on a camera and hoping for the best. A user commented that she had a history of problematic language whereas another said there were better content creators deserving of the award. Catch all the reactions here:

Meanwhile, PewDiePie who is the largest content creator on YouTube, said that he will be taking a break from the platform in 2020 claiming that he was 'very tired'. PiwDiePie was finally able to break through the 100 million subscriber mark after a large battle with Indian music label T-Series where his fans tried very hard to keep him ahead of the music label. T-Series has since surpassed PewDiePie but he still remains the single largest solo creator on YouTube.
