Earlier this week Felix Kjellberg a.k.a well-known YouTuber Pewdiepie face backlash for using the N-Word during the 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 now publicly commented on the incident.
