PewDiePie to Delete YouTube Channel After Hitting 50 Million Subscribers
PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, has announced that he is deleting his YouTube channel after reaching 50 million subscribers on the platform.
The 27-year-old internet personality released a video almost a week ago talking about how he’s going to delete his channel at the milestone over issues with YouTube’s new product and content changes.
“It seems that YouTube wants to promote random-ass f–king videos that you don’t give a sh-t about,” he said in the video. “It feels like a kick in the face when they make changes and don’t tell anyone about it.”
He says that YouTube is unsubscribing people from channels they are subscribed to and that others aren’t being notified about new videos.
PewDiePie is known for his funny commentary on video games and he is the most paid YouTube star of the year, making $15 million in 2016.
