Poor Bella! The gorgeous actress took to the stage at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles, Calif. to present the award for “Male Choice Web Star” alongside her hunky boyfriend Gregg Sulkin, 23. But things took a turn for the worse when it appeared that she was dissing nominee PewDiePie, who happened to be MIA for the night.
When she got up to PewDiePie’s name in the list of nominees, Bella attempted to make a joke about the difficult pronunciation of the YouTuber’s last name. “Felix something, something, something, you know what? Be here if you want to hear the rest of your name,” she said. Unfortunately, the quip was not well received.
