How the mighty have fallen! The biggest youtuber we’ve ever seen Pewdiepie has changed his content up a lot since his “screaming days”. Now his videos have been very controversial, including some instances of him using the N-word and anti-semitic imagery. According to our source, Disney is not feeling the new content, so they decided to cut ties with him.
Along with Disney, Youtube also followed suit and they have cut his premium ads as well as his Youtube Red show ‘Scare Pewdiepie’. This situation reminds me of an athlete when they do something wrong. All of the companies that used to endorse them cut ties and they lose all of the money the companies gave them.
Pewdiepie will be fine as long as his other ventures outside of youtube pan well and he ultimately doesn’t get kicked off of youtube/his videos no longer have ads on them. When you’re under that big of a microscope, you have to play nice at ALL times or suffer the consequences when your backers no longer want to be associated with you.
