One of the most popular YouTube personalities in the world is Felix Kjellberg, more popularly known as “PewDiePie”.
The Swedish online video star who made his fame by playing games on video, while having over the top reactions, and some politically incorrect humor, getting dropped from both Disney owned Maker Studio and YouTube’s Premium Red service after he used the website “Fiverr” that lets people offer freelance services for $5 per action to request an antisemitic statement be written and produced on YouTube.
When it was done, the video shows him surprised that it was actually done.
Kjellberg blames traditional media not understanding the new form of media.
But apologized for poor taste:
That’s FOX Bits for FOX News.
