In a segment from one of Jacksepticeye's recent streams, the Irish YouTuber responded to a viewer who asked if he has seen Corpsekkuno.
"Guys, can we please not ship people together again? Can we not do that? Can we leave that in 2015 and 2016. Let it stay dead and buried? Especially real life people cause it's weird and you know what always happens? it always gets sexual. Every time," he responded.
Speaking about his own experiences, Jacksepticeye reflected when fans used to bombard him with fan art based on him and Markiplier.
"I had it happen with me and Mark. Didn't like it. I said 'please don't make it sexual' and then people made it more sexual. When I said I didn't like it, people said I was homophobic for saying that I didn't want to be shipped with my male friend. It just gets weird. Don't do it," he said.
In light of his recent statement, the online community seemed to echo his thoughts and responded with pleas to not tarnish the wholesome friendship between Corpse Husband and Sykkuno.
At the end of the day, Corpse Husband and Sykkuno are good friends, and fans would hate to see their friendship suffer by inadvertent means.
