PewDiePie has a bad news for his fans. The famous video blogger is planning to delete his YouTube channel for good.

PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, is known for his "Let's Play" videos which consist of merely him playing video games doing some exuberant and over the top commentaries. He started vlogging in 2010 and now, he has 49,868,281 million subscribers, as of writing.

Even so, PewDiePie recently vows to his bros that he will ditch his channel once he hits the 50 million subscribers mark. What gives? According to, Google's video service has been penalizing the Swedish YouTuber, leading his video views in a plunging popularity.

In his video, PewDiePie asserted that changes to YouTube have ruined the site. He said that the certain recommended clickbait videos felt like a "kick in a face" for him.

He also accused the video-sharing website of "trying to kill" his channel. He said, "It is clear. It is happening if you watch my analytics."

He also shared he felt upset with the changes that the video-sharing website made. He added that YouTube cannot even make a proper explanation to anyone.

And like PewDiePie, some Youtubers have also reported having problems with the suggested videos. That being said, the 27-year-old social media sensation added that as a solution to this, he is going to delete his channel.

However, in a report by BBC, YouTube said that it did not make any changes to its suggested videos' algorithms. But, fret not, bros. PewDiePie promised that he would start anew in a different channel after deleting his old one.

PewDiePie has been the most subscribed Youtuber in 2013. He also surpassed Rihanna's Vevo account in 2014. He was recently featured in "Time" magazine and was named one of "The World's 100 Most Influencial People".
