Popular YouTuber PewDiePie – aka Felix Kjellberg – has announced that he will be taking a break from the platform in 2020 because he “felt very tired”. , and he explained that he wanted to inform fans of his plans, while promising that more details would follow soon.
“I’m taking a break from YouTube next year. I wanted to say this in advance because I made up my mind. I am tired. I feel very tired, I don’t know if you can say it, “said the Swede.
In 2017, PewDiePie’s YouTube channel became the platform’s first to reach 10 billion views, and its channel currently has more than 102 million subscribers after its battle with the T-series caught the eye of all. He has already been named the most-watched YouTube creator of 2019.
However, he found himself in controversy after the filming of Christchurch when the “Subscribe to PewDiePie” meme was caught in this terrorist attack. And, he also changed his mind about a $ 50,000 donation to the Anti-Defamation League because he was not passionate about the cause, and some of his fans said he was ” censorship”.
He has taken two more breaks in the past decade, including one in November 2016. But when he returned a few months later in February 2017, he found himself in very hot water when he posted nine videos Semitic. Kjellberg later admitted that he had gone too far, but it was too late to save his multi-million dollar contract with Disney.
According to Variety, last summer, PewDiePie hinted that he was ready for a break after marrying former YouTuber Marzia Bisognin Kjellberg.
“I think it would be good for me to take a break at some point. It would be nice not to have YouTube in my brain for the first time in 10 years, “said Kjellberg.
Earlier this month, PewDiePie revealed that he and his wife had been the victims of a home invasion. His wife Marzia said someone had broken into and taken 90% of her valuables, such as jewelry, luxury goods and items she had collected.
“I know it’s very materialistic and I should be happy with what I have / I have. But I can’t hide the shock and sadness of being all taken away, just like that, ”said Marzia Kjellberg.
After announcing this weekend, fans have noticed that PewDiePie also deleted their Twitter account on Monday after saying they hate the social media site.
