The most successful YouTuber in the world is quitting his YouTube channel!
YouTube superstar PewDiePie has told his fans that he will be deleting his YouTube channel after owning 50 million subscribers, and that is likely to be pretty soon as he currently has 49.7 subscribers.
The reason the Swedish vlogger resort to such action is because he claimed that YouTube is killing his channel.
“YouTube is trying to kill my channel. It is clear. It is happening if you watch my analytics. It is all going down,” the 27-year-old said in a recent video titled “DELETING MY CHANNEL AT 50 MILLION”.
PewDiePie whose real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, also claimed that he had seen his video views decline and some of his videos were no longer appearing for subscribers.
He suggested that the new algorithms promoted clickbait and “recommended videos”.
“It’s because I have so many subscribers, they are trying to kill my channel. This is all a conspiracy. YouTube wants to kill my channel. I’ve decided the only way to stop my channel from dying – I know you are going to think I am joking – but I am going to delete my channel,” he said in his video.
Nevertheless, PewDiePie also said that he is not actually going to quit YouTube, he is just planning on deleting his current existing channel and start fresh with a new one.
On a more recent update, PewDiePie mentioned on his Twitter that YouTube has heard his complaints and is currently looking into the issues.
