He’s so popular that people are screen printing shirts of him and they’re selling out!
Despite his huge online following and the attention from mainstream media, PewDiePie refuses to shy away from controversial subjects and has met with controversy himself. At the beginning of this year, just as he was about to release the second season of his YouTube Red original series, Scare PewDiePie, the show was canceled, and YouTube has reportedly severed business ties with him.
