Disney’s Maker Studios has severed ties with YouTube sensation Felix Kjellberg, who is known in the virtual world as PewDiePie, while YouTube has cancelled his reality series after reports emerged that he made anti-Semitic videos. According to a report in Wall Street Journal, Kjellberg had posted nine videos since August last year with anti-Semitic humour and images from the Nazi era.

The men in one of those videos with the sign saying ‘Death to all Jews’ are Indians. He had hired them through Fiverr, reported Wired. Maker Studios accused Kjellberg of posting “provocative and irreverent” videos. YouTube, on the other hand, maintained that it would cancel the release of Scare PewDiePie Season 2 and drop his channel from Google Preferred, reported Associated Press.

Kjellberg, however, defended himself by saying that his content were for entertainment purpose. In a Tumblr post, he claimed that he never supported any “hate-based groups” and did not mean to offend anyone.

The Swedish web-based comedian and video producer has over 53 million subscribers to his YouTube account and his videos receive millions of views everyday. He has earned millions through deals with YouTube and Disney. Kjellberg’s claim to fame was his profanity-filled commentary accompanying his gaming videos.
