MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA: CinnamonToastKen, an American YouTuber now living in Australia, has gained millions of subscribers since 2011. But, many attribute his success to PewDiePie.

What did CinamonToastKen say?

PewDiePie and Ken have collaborated frequently over the years, but Ken argues that some people tend to overstate PewDiePie’s impact on his channel as a way to “devalue” his contributions.


Ken responded strongly to critics who claimed he “wouldn’t be anything” without PewDiePie, aiming to silence such assertions entirely.

While Ken acknowledges PewDiePie’s substantial influence on his career, he also emphasizes that he seized the opportunity and leveraged the boost he received.

Ken asserts that he built his own brand by crafting content and fostering connections with the right individuals. “It was all worth it in the end, despite putting up with a bunch of s**t” initially,” he said.

On September 11, he took to Twitter and wrote a long message. “Don’t let people devalue you. Something I hear all the time, pewdiepie made you, he shouted you out, you wouldn’t be anything without him.”


He added, “100% he has helped my career. That shoutout took my channel from 1500 to 3000 subs 10 years ago. Most people dont even realize he shouted out another channel in that video. Difference is I kept going.”

Ken also said, “Through continuing to make content, networking, and putting up with a bunch of s**t I now have everything I ever wanted. People will always run their mouth and make you feel worthless, or nitpick your shortcomings. Its important to realize what you have and appreciate it.”
