The Bro Army is confused. YouTube star PewDiePie made a very shocking announcement to the online community. After reaching 50 million subscribers, PewDiePie YouTube account will be deleted.
The announcement was first made via YouTube. PewDiePie uploaded a video on his channel titled “DELETING MY CHANNEL AT 50 MILLION“. The gamer vlogger’s YouTube channel reached 50 million today. And then he solidified his claim of deleting his channel via Twitter.
PewDiePie YouTube Account: Is He Serious About Deleting It?
Forbes named PewDiePie the highest paid star of YouTube. Despite that achievement, it looks like the Swedish personality was not happy with YouTube recently.
One of his main problems was the lesser views in his videos. He claims that these changes are YouTube’s fault. Felix also went on how YouTube was unsubscribing people from channels without prior notification. He also added that he was mysteriously unsubscribed to some of his favorite channels. And that the channels he removed subscription from were making appearances in his page.
The gamer also complained how YouTube was killing his channel.
“This is not just affecting me, it’s affecting other YouTubers and creators,” he said.
Not the End for PewDiePie
However, PewDiePie claims that he will not end his YouTube career. According to the gamer, PewDiePie YouTube account will be deleted. Then he will make a new one but did not specify when he will do it.
He said, “I will delete my channel. I think it’s going to be pretty fun, I’m excited to delete my channel. And start fresh. With a new shitty channel probably. I won’t quit YouTube, I’ll just delete the channel.”
Fans are skeptical regarding the PewDiePie YouTube account removal. Some claim it is a publicity stunt to gain more views. Others say PewDiePie is simply pranking the Bro Army.
Meanwhile, Mirror UK reported that YouTube reacted to PewDiePie’s YouTube account statement. The spokesperson said, “We’ve done an extensive review and found there have been no decreases in creators subscriber numbers beyond what normally happens when viewers either unsubscribe from a creator’s channel or when YouTube removes spammed subscribers. We do the latter to ensure that all creator subscriber numbers are accurate.”
Whether PewDiePie is serious with his claim or not, the Bro Army can only wait to see if it is true.
