There is no peace for Felix Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie. After the allegations of anti-Semitic ‘jokes’ that led to the end of his collaboration with Disney, the world’s most famous YouTuber (more than 57 million subscribers) has been heavily criticized for using racist insultsduring a livestream of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
There is no doubt that the racist offense exclaimed by PewDiePie has been very puzzling. In the aftermath of the incident, the famous YouTuber later produced a video in which he publicly apologized for the language he used.
Just a few days later after the apology, during a new livestream of PLAYERUNKNOWN’s Battlegrounds, PewDiePie risked again spluttering some N-word, succeeding in his fortune to stop in time, this time.
Check the video in this tweet.

Campo Santo Productions has already contacted YouTube to block any content of Firewatch contained within the PewDiePie channel but, given the situation, it is not excluded that other companies may soon decide to act in the same way.
This is something that could seriously affect the image of the very popular YouTuber who has already found himself in such similar and unpleasant situations in the past.
A controversial situation indeed, especially given the delicate theme. As usual, let us know about your opinion in the comments below.
