For those who aren’t aware of the whole episode, after PewDiePie gave a shout out to an anti-Semitic YouTube channel, Dianna had urged gaming industry “to end” PewDiePie, and cut ties with him. She made these comments in a tweet:

She received a lot of backlash – especially from PewDiePie fans – over her comments. Shortly after these tweets, Dianna’s Twitter profile and bio underwent major changes, triggering rumors that she has been fired by Ubisoft.
