Disney cut ties with YouTuber PewDiePie after anti-semitic videos

PewDiePie

Disney has cut ties with PewDiePie (real name Felix Kjellberg) after the YouTube star released a series of videos containing Nazi imagery and anti-semitic content. 

According to Maker Studios, the YouTuber agency owned by Disney, “Although Felix has created a following by being provocative and irreverent, he clearly went too far in this case and the resulting videos are inappropriate.” 

“Though this was not my intention, I understand that these jokes were ultimately offensive,” said PewDiePie, according to the BBC.

Is reported that  PewDiePie estimated to have earned $15 million through YouTube last year.
