“PewDiePie is at the centre of a controversy, once again.

YouTube’s highest paid and most prominent personality, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, used a racial slur during a livestream video playing Battle Royale shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

In the video, PewDiePie can be seen getting frustrated with another player and shouting to him: “What a fucking n-,” before immediately correcting himself: “Sorry, but what the fuck. What a fucking asshole.””*

  1. PewDiePie already has been demonitized a long time ago, so the question at the beginning of the article is irrelevant. They want his “fair use” videos taken down, and are trying to use DMCA claims against them to get YouTube to take them down, which could have ramifications for all video game streamers.
