Last year, PewDiePie was overtaken as the biggest YouTube channel in the world by Bollywood record label T-Series, which currently has quite 121 million subscribers.
Disney cut ties with him in 2017 after some videos he released were found to contain Nazi references or anti-Semitic imagery.
He accepted the material was offensive but stressed that he didn't support "any kind of hateful attitudes".
Later in 2017, he apologized for victimization the N-word throughout a live stream. In 2018, he apologized once more for reposting a meme that seemed to mock singer Demi Lovato's hospital treatment for a suspected drug overdose.
