Disney Drops PewDiePie and YouTube Distances Itself After Reports of Anti-Semitic Videos

The Disney-owned Maker Studios and YouTube have pulled away from PewDiePie, one of the video platform’s most popular stars, after a report that he had posted several videos featuring anti-Semitic imagery.

Maker Studios said on Monday that it had severed ties with the star, Felix Kjellberg, a Swede better known by his YouTube alias PewDiePie, while YouTube said on Tuesday that it had canceled the release of a coming series and dropped him from a premier advertising program.

The announcements came after The Wall Street Journal reported that Mr. Kjellberg had posted nine anti-Semitic videos since August.

“Although Felix has created a following by being provocative and irreverent, he clearly went too far in this case, and the resulting videos are inappropriate,’’ a Maker Studios spokeswoman said in a statement on Monday. “Maker Studios has made the decision to end our affiliation with him going forward.”

On Tuesday, a YouTube spokeswoman said the service was canceling the release of “Scare PewDiePie Season 2,” a sequel to an original YouTube series, and dropping PewDiePie from Google Preferred, a program that offers advertisers access to its most popular channels.

So who is Pewdiepie? Only THE most popular YouTuber.  He’s got a measly 53, 381,106 subscribers.  He made 15 MILLION DOLLARS last year.  Do you really think someone with that amount of clout and money is going to back down?


I honestly do not like Pewdiepie and that is the first of his videos that I managed to get all the way through, but if he’s going to throw his weight into redpilling Generation Z (it’s been claimed that most of his subscribers are 20 and under), then more power to him.
