YouTube star Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg roasted Fortnite pro Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad for not knowing what the word “misogynistic” meant.
Now back from his break, Pewds is getting right back into the swing of things with his daily videos.
In his February 24 upload, just his third video back from hiatus, the YouTuber dove right into a Jubilee video that asked if all pro players think the same.
Of course, he couldn’t wait to give this one a watch and share his thoughts throughout.
At around the three-minute mark in the video, the video began to discuss misogyny which is when Aydan had to pause what was going on because he didn’t actually know what the word meant.
The segment was titled “Gaming culture is misogynistic” and as it started, the Fortnite pro revealed he wasn’t prepared to discuss the topic.
“I’m not going to lie, I need the definition of that word,” he said when they stopped and asked if he was talking about misogynistic. “Yeah, what is that?”
PewDiePie burst out in laughter upon hearing this and even added in a roast of his own as the video did a close up on Aydan.
“Anti what,” he mocked as he went into another fit of laughter. “What’s a woman? I need a definition of that. What’s a woman?”
The dictionary definition the video gives is the “dislike, or mistrust of women, or prejudice against women.”
At the very least, Aydan is now aware of what the word means, so he’ll be able to avoid embarrassing blunders like this in the future.

It’s obvious that PewDiePie won’t hold back on anybody, and it’s not even clear in the first place if he even knew who Aydan was before this video, but he’s certainly aware of him now.
When the video moved on to discuss the topic in greater detail, the YouTube star disagreed in the regard that women get more hate online than men.
“I disagree though, cause I think in general people are much harsher on men because it’s like ‘oh you can take it’.”
The Swedish YouTuber certainly knows a thing or two about people being harsh to him on the internet, but whether men get more abuse than women is a different discussion entirely.
