    While rumours of Dillon the Hacker’s death were previously regarded as a hoax by many social media users, PewDiePie appears to have confirmed the veracity of the reports with his online eulogy.

    Famous vlogger and one-time King of YouTube Felix Kjellberg a.k.a. PewDiePie, who recently became the first individual YouTuber to reach 100 million subscribers, has paid tribute to Dillon Henderson, a social media personality known as "Dillon the Hacker" who was described as Pewds’ "arch-enemy" by the Daily Mirror.

    According to the newspaper, rumors of Henderson’s death, which allegedly took place last month, started circulating earlier in August but many fans regarded them as a hoax, until PewDiePie appeared to confirm them.

    "Such sad news to hear about his passing. My condolences to his family and close ones. RIP Dillon", Kjellberg wrote, describing Henderson as a "talented young comedian" who once managed to successfully troll Pewds’ "entire audience".

    ​Many social media users echoed PewDiePie’s sentiment, with the few who tried to crack jokes being quickly called out.
