Christchurch gunman urges listeners to subscribe to PewDiePie, but Swedish YouTuber revolts, supports victims of attack

MUMBAI: The tussle to secure the topmost YouTube channel globally has been going on for a while between Swedish channel PewDiePie and home-grown T-Series. In past one month, even though briefly, T-Series took over PewDiePie, only to be replaced by PewDiePie. The fans of both the channels are making sure their favourite stays on the top. While there is a lot of exchange of words happening among the fans and both the channels, a conclusive decision is yet to be taken on the numero uno channel. However, today in a shocking video the main assaulter of the ghastly New Zealand shoot-out at Christchurch mosques released a video urging the viewers of the video to subscribe for the Swedish channel. The attack has killed 48 people and injured another 49 people.

PewDiePie immediately tweeted that he is disgusted to see his channel’s name uttered by a man who is responsible of the ghastly attacks and doesn’t support it. He also extended his sympathies and condolences to the bereaved families. The Swedish YouTuber has been condemned for his racial slurs previously. He, however, distanced himself from this urge by the gunmen.

As a response, the Swedish YouTuber’s fans have also tweeted, “Everyone say with me. Pewdiepie has nothing to do with shootings.”

The 17-minute video was posted by the Gunmen on YouTube, which has been removed by the platform. In a statement, YouTube shared, “Violent content will not any place on YouTube.” Other social media platforms have also suspended the accounts of the gunman.

The ghastly attacks have shaken the world and have been described as the darkest day in the history of New Zealand by the New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern.
