It may have taken a couple of days but Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg has responded to the news that he called an opposing player using the N-word during a live stream of PUBG. He responded by apologising for his actions stating that he is “just an idiot” for what he did.
He explains in his short video
I owe it to my audience and to myself to do better than this, because I know I’m better than this.
Being the biggest name in YouTube, what PewDiePie does gets caught quickly so it will be interesting to see whether he really is apologetic and does strive to be better. For content creators everywhere we hope he does since what he does puts the eyes of the government on the media we love and we don’t necessarily want to see that regulated like traditional media is.
