Why did PewDiePie want to quit YouTube nearly 3 years ago?

‘I don’t know’

In PewDiePie’s recent YouTube video titled ‘I got hacked, then Banned’, he addressed his viewers and said, “Well, it was nice while it lasted, PewDiePie got banned! It's really cool because Twitch, just like YouTube, doesn't like to say what [got] you banned, so I don't know....” He jokingly added, "Probably shouldn't have been streaming the videos from 2017, but hey! (Laughs)." 



Finally, he seriously addressed the ban, stating that it was a “weird time.” He continued, “Everyone thought I was hacked first because we were doing a 24x7 live stream on Twitch. Just for fun, I thought it could be a good way to make people as well, like, have the chat and watch videos together and it's there if people want it. Because I have so many goddamn videos right?”


PewDiePie told his fans, “No one knows, I don't care, it's back up.” His fans were overjoyed despite the reason being unknown. Keep reading to know how his fans react to his recent video!

I am honoured that this video came out today.”


Another person commented, “I do miss some of the content ngl. But seeing Pewds so happy and content is truly what he deserves. Keep it up, my man.”
