Video game streamer and popular YouTube personality Felix Kjellberg, also known as #Pewdiepie, has been known to get into trouble about his video content from time to time. His #YouTube channel has 57 million subscribers, which is more than any other channel on the service. Kjellberg has once again landed in trouble after he used a #Racial Slur while streaming one of his videos where he plays 'PlayerUnknown's BattleGround' or PUBG. While most of the times, he gets away with offensive remarks, Kjellberg may be in trouble this time around.

What did PewDiePie say?

In this particular video, PewDiePie can be seen playing PUBG and getting frustrated about a competing gamer and his style of play.

During one such frustrated rant, he uses the N-word to berate the competing player. Having realized almost immediately that he used the term, Kjellberg apologized to the viewers but seemed to move on nonchalantly. This slip-up in the YouTuber's part angered many of his fans and even a particular game developer.

Sean Vanaman, the co-founder of Campo Santo, the studio behind critical hit 'Firewatch,' lashed out at Kjellberg for his racial comments. He even threatened to pull down all of the 'Firewatch' content that the YouTuber had recorded and posted on his channel last year after the game released. Vanaman mentioned that some leeway has to be given to content creators on YouTube, but there is a limit which should not be crossed.

This is not the first time that PewDiePie has been criticized for his YouTube content.

In February, the Wall Street Journal reported that the content creator had posted some videos, which showcased his anti-Semitic attitude and support for Nazi ideals. After these allegations came to light, Disney-owned Maker Studios canceled Kjellberg's contract, and YouTube also terminated the scripted series featuring the YouTuber on its premium service, YouTube Red.

What does the latest controversy mean for PewDiePie?

Kjellberg has yet to respond to the criticism for his use of the offensive racial slur in his video. However, this time, the YouTuber may be facing some real problems. Vanaman is just one game developer, who has issued a DMCA takedown of all 'Firewatch' videos on Kjellberg's channel.

However, he has urged other game developers also to take similar action regarding Kjellberg. He labeled the YouTuber as a 'closeted racist' and 'propagator of despicable garbage' on his Twitter account. However, for the moment, Kjellberg seems to be retaining all of his more than 57 million subscribers. So, only the future will tell whether Vanaman and other developers take steps against the YouTuber.
