Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg


YouTube deletes "diss track" aimed at children's YouTube channel, made by one of platform's biggest creators: Felix Kjellberg, better known as “PewDiePie,” is the creator of one of YouTube's most watched channels. It was the most followed channel for 1,920 days, but now ranks second in that category. Kjellberg has historically gotten into spats with other channels vying for this top spot on the platform, and he has a proclivity to create "diss tracks" aimed at those seeking to push him from his throne. YouTube deleted Kjellberg's latest "diss track" going after a children’s channel that is quickly gaining popularity on YouTube called Cocomelon. "In the video, Kjellberg attacks Cocomelon’s content and pokes fun at kids who watch the videos," reports The Verge. "Kjellberg also uses phrases like 'your audience is just a bunch of motherfucking virgins,' which could violate YouTube’s guidelines for using offensive or vulgar language in videos that include children. Toward the end of the video, Kjellberg also hands what appears to be plastic weapons to a few kids, who use them to attack a melon." YouTube cited violations of child safety and harassment policies when asked about the video's removal from Kjellberg's channel. "To clarify, [the video] violated two policies," tweeted YouTube's official support account. "1) Child safety: by looking like it was made for kids but containing inappropriate content (incl violence) 2) Harassment: we allow criticism & also diss tracks in some cases, but w/ both policies in mind, this video crossed the line."
