Unlike the last time the most-subscribed YouTuber said the N-word, however, this time he might actually realize that he did something incredibly wrong and publicly apologized.
PewDiePie, the Swedish vlogger whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, used the racial slur during a live stream Sunday about an opponent he was fighting in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds game: "What a f-ing n--..."
This latest offensive slip comes after PewDiePie lost contracts with Disney's Maker Studios and YouTube after urging his fans to post anti-Semitic jokes and videos of his featuring reported Nazi imagery.
"You probably won't believe this when I say this, but, whenever I go online and I hear other players use the same kind of language that I did, I always find it extremely immature and stupid", Kjellberg said.
PewDiePie's YouTube channel has more than 57 million subscribers, making it the most-followed channel on the video service.
"It was something that I said in the heat of the moment".
Mise en garde par le CSA pour l'épreuve de L'Asile — Fort Boyard
Le candidat soumis à l'épreuve de " l'asile " devait effiler une camisole de force, délivrée par le "Docteur Muraille". Le 24 juin dernier, le programme décide en effet de renouveler l'une de leurs épreuves, qui existe depuis 2001.
Pewds continued, "I'm not going to make any excuses to why it did, because there are no excuses for it".
I wanted to make a statement on what I said in my previous livestream.
"I'm disappointed in myself, because it seems like I've learned nothing from these past controversies... I'm really sorry if I offended, hurt, or disappointed anyone with all of this".
Added Kjellberg, "It's not that I think I can say or do whatever I want and get away with it".
Kjellberg then said, "I don't mean that in a bad way". I really want to improve myself and better myself, not just for me, but for anyone that looks up to me or anyone that's influenced by me, and that's how I want to move forward away from this. "I can't keep messing up like this".
