A few days ago, the world’s most popular YouTuber PewDiePie used racial language during a live stream of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Some were understandably mad over the incident, including Brendan Greene, the PlayerUnknown.
He shared an apology video where he explained how the N-Word slipped out and he didn’t really mean to say it. Many argued that it doesn’t just slip out unless it is part of one’s regular vocabulary. This got merit today as PewDiePie almost once again used racial language during a stream of Battlegrounds.
However, he instantly realized what he was about to say and stopped himself from completing his words. He acknowledged to his viewers that he was about to screw up once again days after the original controversy. It seems such language is indeed a part of his vocabulary which is fine as long as he doesn’t use it live on the internet.

In whichever way viewers choose to react to his new slip up, it is still best that Pewds finds a better way to approach his live streams. Not too long ago, he came under heavy fire over anti-Semitic jokes on his YouTube channel. He lost his partnership with Disney and YouTube suspended his YouTube Red membership. His videos are not as well monetized as they once were.
This forced him to announce a Twitch channel and try and cover his losses there.
