No matter how YouTube famous you may be, there’s no getting away from the consequences of dropping the “N” word. And that’s basically what happened to Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, otherwise known as PewDiePie, when he said the N word in one of his Youtube videos. The PewDiePie ‘N’ Word video is now making the rounds in social media. He’s actually all over Twitter, too!
Pictures and videos of PewDiePie saying the N Word are currently being retweeted by thousands of Twitter users with the hashtag #PewDiePieIsOverParty.
Does this mark the end of PewDiePie’s YouTube career, or is it a calculated attempt to get gain more subscribers?
What’s in the PewDiePie ‘N’ Word video?
In the opening of PewDiePie’s YouTube clip, “I Won An Award,” he reviewed all the “ugly” comments that he received on Twitter. But the video isn’t all about the pain that he had to go through receiving those comments, he’s actually celebrating his achievement.
And while PewDiePie doesn’t seem to impress some Twitter users by his ‘looks,’ some people think otherwise. PewDiePie’s “I Won An Award,” commemorates his victory of being one of The 100 Most Handsome Faces of 2016.

But just when everyone thought it was just an adorable video of the YouTube star celebrating, PewDiePie says the “N” word. “Eighteen, N—as!” he yelled in the video.

Never say the N word! Your influence is too big and that’s not your culture. You’re fueling those racists comments ? #PewdiepieIsOverParty
