Jimmy Kimmel Hugs It Out With Markiplier And MissesMae Over YouTube Gaming Comments

by Mike Futter on Sep 04, 2015 at 02:58 AM

The sad tale of the old man who just doesn’t get it may be coming to a close. After a week of mocking people who watch gaming videos, Jimmy Kimmel visited Mark “Markiplier” Fischbach and Jonna “MissesMae” Mae at Maker Studios to learn the ways of YouTube and Let’s Plays.

Of course, Kimmel kicked off the segment with more colorful comments he’s received from the gaming community. But this feud (or is it a "feud”?) seems to be coming to a close.

This week-long bit has been a source of laughs for Kimmel and anger from some segments of the gaming community. Hopefully, this saga has come to a close. 

Will we see Kimmel start his own Twitch channel and stream Pac-Man and Donkey Kong? Probably not, but we’ll always have the memories of him being absolutely terrible at Rocket League.
