PewDiePie Uses N-Word During Live Stream


PewDiePie Blurts Out N-Word During Video-Game Live Stream, Faces New Backlash



Editor: Jean-Pierre Dinnall



Felix Kjellberg, a.k.a. YouTuber PewDiePie, is facing backlash after using the n-word during a recent live stream of the game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. In ripped footage of the incident, PewDiePie calls a fellow player a “f*****g n***er” before claiming he “didn’t mean that in a bad way.”



After reports circulated Sunday about PewDiePie’s uttering the n-word, Campo Santo co-founder Sean Vanaman, whose studio develops the game Firewatch, tweeted that the company plans to file DMCA takedown requests to try to remove all videos of Kjellberg playing his company’s titles.

Vanaman also tweeted, “I am sick of this child getting more and more chances to make money off of what we make” and that PewDiePie is “worse than a closeted racist: he’s a propagator of despicable garbage that does real damage to the culture around this industry.”

PewDiePie’s original stream of the exchange—entitled “CALIFORNIA ROLL”—has been removed, Mic reported Sunday. He has not publicly commented on the incident, which is far from the first time the world’s most popular YouTuber has been at the center of controversy.
