AceShowbiz - Pewdiepie was really close to ending his career as a YouTuber when he was seen in one video paying two South Asian men to hold up a sign that read, "Death to all Jews." He then paid another freelancer to dress up as Jesus and film himself saying, "Hitler did nothing wrong." The backlash was immediate, with YouTube canceling a reality series he made in partnership with YouTube Red. Disney also ended business ties with him.
The YouTube star, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, then posted an apology video and accused the media of "attacking" him and making him look like a bad person. "If there's anything I learned about the media from being a public figure is how they blatantly misrepresent people for their own personal gain, and even viciously attack people just to further themselves," he said.
