If you spend a lot of your time watching YouTube videos, you’ve probably heard about #Pewdiepie. It’s one of the most popular #YouTube channels today, administered by Swedish comedian Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, with 57 million subscribers as of September 2017. In fact, it holds the distinction of being the most viewed channel of all time with more than 16 billion views.

PewDiePie focuses on commentary and reactions from video games as he plays through them, mostly horror and action games. As his number of subscribers grew, he began experimenting with live-action comedy shorts and uploaded them on his YouTube channel.

Most were funny, while others, well not so much.

Some of Kjellberg’s antics have even generated controversies along the way. With that in mind, here are some of PewDiePie’s jokes that weren’t funny at all.

A sign that said 'Death to all Jews'

In January, PewDiePie has paid two Indian men to shoot a video of themselves holding up a sign that said “Death to all Jews.”

Kjellberg insisted that it was merely a joke and was meant as a social experiment to prove that anyone on Fiverr, a website where freelancers offer their services for as low as $5, would do anything for that amount of cash, according to The Guardian.

The two individuals in the video have since apologized for their actions, saying that they didn’t know what the sign meant at that time.

PewDiePie thought that joining ISIS was funny

Kjellberg received backlash when he joked about joining #ISIS.

It started when a fake news Twitter account claimed, as a joke, that PewDiePie has joined the Jihadist militant group.

However, instead of ignoring the joke, Kjellberg decided to go along and posted on his Twitter account that he did in fact joined ISIS with his friends. As a result, PewDiePie’s Twitter account was temporarily suspended for making such absurd remarks.

All the rape jokes

Kjellberg is a very animated individual. So much so that when filming himself playing video games, he would often blurt out any word that comes to mind. Unfortunately, he uses the word “rape” more than he should.

He usually threatens rape towards video game characters while playing. In addition, he made a music video titled, “It’s Raping Time” which featured the song “Shut Up (and Sleep with Me)" by Sebastian Roth.

Following a tremendous amount of flak, PewDiePie has apologized for the music video and has since deleted the same from his YouTube channel.
