PewDiePie has been at the centre of controversy on several occasions during his time on the video platform.
In 2017, he was criticised for using the n-word during a live gaming stream. Immediately after making the comment, aimed at another player in the game, he apologised, saying he “didn’t mean that in a bad way”.
In the same year, he was dropped by Disney after anti-Semitic references were discovered in his videos – including people holding up a sign that read: “Death to all Jews.”
He said he was “trying to show how crazy the modern world is” and had paid two men from India through Fiverr, a freelance marketplace, to make the sign.
