Tv wall mount rated for 20kg and I put a tv 28kg

Will my wall mount hold up, I have a wall mount that has a short arm from Hama rated for 65 inch tv and 20 kg, but the tv has 27kg

We have no way of saying. If you want peace of mind, get a mount that's actually rated for your TV. 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

Maybe, but the weight limit is there for a reason and you are exceeding it by 35%. I second getting a mount that states it can handle the weight.

How expensive was your TV? How expensive would it be to replace it, should it fall off the wall and be destroyed? Is that an expense you can reasonably cover?

 

How expensive was the TV mount? How much more expensive is a proper TV mount rated for the weight you're putting on it?

 

Will it fail? Probably not, as most manufacturers do build in some buffer - but we have no way of knowing. My TV was damn expensive, so I personally wouldn't risk using an undersized mount on it.

 

But you're not just over by a kilogram. You're over by 35%, as noted by @tikker. You do you, but what you're doing is a bad idea.
