Update: PewDiePie has released a statement following the controversy. Check it out below:
YouTube superstar, PewDiePie is once again under hot water after saying the n-word during a live game broadcast. During the controversial livestream of PUBG, the YouTube star whose real name is Felix Kjellberg said, "What a f**king n*****! Geez! Oh my god! What the f**k? Sorry, but what the f**k!"
Now, PewDiePie is facing major backlash as, Sean Vanaman, the co-founder of Firewatch developer, Campo Santo is filling a DMCA takedown notice on PewDiePie’s videos about Firewatch, and all future games under them, Vanaman explained on Twitter.
This is not the first time that PewDiePie, the most subscribed channel on YouTube, faced similar accusations. In February this year, he faced criticisms for a “Death to all Jews” sign that he later apologized for. However, the apology came too late as Disney and YouTube Red severed ties with him. As of now, PewDiePie is yet to comment on the controversy.
