Some months ago, PewDiePie’s position as the most-subscribed YouTuber was put in jeopardy by the rise of a rival channel called T-Series that mainly uploads Indian music videos. In response to this, PewDiePie and his community created the “subscribe to PewDiePie” meme to help the YouTuber retain his top spot on YouTube. However, some PewDiePie fans have taken the “subscribe to PewDiePie” meme too far, and now PewDiePie himself is calling for the meme to end.
“I think it’s time to end the ‘subscribe to PewDiePie’ movement or meme,” PewDiePie said in his latest video. PewDiePie then expressed his gratitude to his fans that did harmless things with the “subscribe to PewDiePie” meme, like purchasing a $1 million billboard in Times Square to promote his channel or wearing “subscribe to PewDiePie” shirts at the Super Bowl.
But as previously stated, some PewDiePie fans took the “subscribe to PewDiePie meme” too far. In one instance, fans wrote “subscribe to PewDiePie” on a World War 2 memorial. “It’s just so disgusting. So disappointing to have my name and community dragged into that.” PewDiePie disavowed the World War 2 memorial vandalism and then donated to the park. PewDiePie hoped that would be the end of people doing negative things in his name, but then something much worse happened.
