NOTE: For all latest, breaking news related to PewDiePie, other YouTubers, and Youtube in general, head here.

PewDiePie kicked up a storm when in one of his recent videos he gave a shout out to a channel that shares hateful, anti-Semitic content. Given that the Swedish YouTuber owns the most subscribed channel of YouTube, the news spread like wildfire around the world.

Since then, Felix has responded to the controversy by saying he wasn’t aware of the anti-Jew references videos on that channel have. Further, PewDiePie said the shout out to that channel has been removed from their video.

But it appears the fire this controversy has ignited isn’t dousing anytime soon. Just yesterday, we told you how a BuzzFeed News reporter tried to drag PewDiePie into a new controversy, but failed. And now, another journalist has been apparently spotted saying distasteful things about the YouTuber.

We are talking about popular video game journalist Danny O’Dwyer. While their Twitter account is locked, another gaming journalist Ian Miles Cheong shared some screenshots that show what all Danny has been saying about PewDiePie recently.


Danny faced a lot of back clash on the Twitter thread for their comments. Take a look:

While it was wrong for PewDiePie to endorse YouTube channels with videos featuring anti-Semitic content, Danny’s comparison is also bizarre to say the least.
