YouTuber PewDiePie axed by Disney after anti-semitic movies

Videos present Nazi and anti-semitic content material which YouTuber claims had been “jokes”.


Disney has severed ties with PewDiePie after the YouTube star launched a sequence of movies containing Nazi imagery and anti-semitic content material.

In one video launched on January 11, the YouTuber, actual title Felix Kjellberg, paid individuals to carry up an indication studying “death to all Jews”.

“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,” mentioned Maker Studios, the YouTuber company owned by Disney.

“Though this was not my intention, I understand that these jokes were ultimately offensive,” mentioned PewDiePie, based on the BBC.

Last 12 months it’s estimated PewDiePie earned $15 million by means of YouTube.
