BREAKING BUZZ NEWS
PewDiePie's show on YouTube is GONE. He's been fired by YOUTUBE hours after Disney let him go over his anti-Semitic "jokes" on his channel.
YouTube says it canceled the release of a 2nd season for PewDiePie who's real name is Felix Kjellberg and will not be promoting the rest of his channel as well.
One of his videos included a banner that read, "Death to all Jews."
Disney, which owns Maker Studios and helped produce PewDiePie's show, also fired him after they realized he had a ton of anti-Semitic gags and Nazi imagery embedded in his vids.
“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 Disney’s Maker Studios spokesman said.
Kjellberg has maintained that the content in question is more an attempt to open dialogue than an extension of his views.
“It’s 2017 now and we are going to have to start separating what is a joke and what is actually problematic,” he said in a video. “Is a joke actually pure racism? Is a joke something that would be considered pure homophobia or anti-Semitic?”
PewDiePie has more than 53 million followers, and is YouTube's most popular channel. The star has earned an estimated $124 million dollars since 2010.
