Welcome to the fiery side of social media, Bella Thorne.
The young actress took the stage tonight alongside her hunky beau Gregg Sulkin to present the award for Male Choice Web Star, and while announcing the nominees, it seemed like she threw major shade at Felix Kjellberg, otherwise known to fans as PewDiePie, who wasn't present for the festivities.
"Felix something, something, something, you know what? Be here if you want to hear the rest of your name," Thorne said.
And the Twitterverse was not happy about it.

The fact that Bella Thorne expects @pewdiepie to fly from Brighton to LA bc he's nominated for an award just so his name could be said right— ?jaz 28.08.15 (@mukeftjustin) August 17, 2015
bella thorne was so rude about felix's name, if she couldn't pronounce it she should've just called him pewdiepie— eric foreman (@alltimegordon) August 17, 2015
bella thorne won the award of most disrespectful child of the night :-)— fi loves calum (@calumsfirefly) August 17, 2015
Bella thorne could've at least tried to say felix's last name, tbh I found that kinda rude— savanna//pls michael (@90scalumthood) August 17, 2015
and also Bella Thorne, HIS NAME IS FELIX ARVID ULF KJELLBERG. And apparently he has more subscribers than you have brain cells— kailee (@iHartPTX) August 17, 2015
Yikes! Thorne clearly caught wind of the all the backlash on Twitter, and decided to respond to those who were bothered with an apology and clarification—it was part of the script!
I knew how to say his name It was part of the script. A joke. I didn't write it. Calm down. Nothing but love for @pewdiepie— bella thorne (@bellathorne) August 17, 2015
PewDiePie currently has over 38 million YouTube subscribers and over 6 million Twitter followers, however, the award ultimately ended up going to Cameron Dallas.
Don't worry, she was able to say his name perfectly fine.
