Markiplier, one of the platform’s biggest YouTubers, just had his segment cut from the YouTube Game On Live event without warning – and judging by his response, he’s not happy about it .
The YouTube game enabled The event was marketed as an event where chatters on the stream can make choices to determine the outcome of what happens on the stream.
Prompts would pop up on screen with choices viewers had to make, and depending on which chat they voted for, things would play out differently on stream.
Big names like Bella Poarch, Sykkuno and KSI were taking part in the event, along with a brief Hot Ones segment. It was a huge livestream event with a ton of creators involved, but someone was missing.
Where is Markiplier?
Markiplier was to participate in this event and was even present in the marketing of the event organized by YouTube itself. However, Markiplier fans noticed that his segment of the stream was a bit short.
After the event, Markiplier posted a tweet confirming that an entire segment he created for this stream had been cut from the final product.
And it wasn’t just him either. Markiplier collaborated with other YouTubers to organize this event, only for it to be cut.
Markiplier said his portion of the live stream was cut “without warning” and he was going to upload it to his own YouTube channel instead.
A fan noticed that Markiplier’s name still appears in the timestamps of the video, as well as the fact that the timestamps are generally out of order and completely inaccurate with the times being aired.
The only time Markiplier showed up live was a brief appearance just around 1 hour 17 minutes into the live stream, which is way off his set timeslot.
Meanwhile, the main YouTube account tweeted below Mark’s announcement telling his fans to come to the stream to see the content he created for it.
YouTube has yet to comment on the issue.
