MrBeast challenges T-Series to sub count face-off “for PewDiePie”
YouTube star MrBeast has officially challenged T-Series to a sub count face-off “for PewDiePie,” after helping the Swede wage war against the Indian music label many years ago.
Up until 2022, Swedish creator Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg reigned supreme on the platform; but he, too, was knocked down a peg at one point by Indian music label ‘T-Series.’
T-Series is the number-one most subscribed channel on YouTube, which officially beat out PewDiePie back in 2019 after a fierce war erupted between the Swede’s fanbase and Bollywood fans.
MrBeast was in the trenches leading the charge, even appearing at the Super Bowl with a giant sign asking fans to “Subscribe to PewDiePie.”
Although T-Series eventually took the top spot on YouTube, PewDiePie remained the platform’s most-subscribed independent creator until last year, when MrBeast took that title away from him.
MrBeast takes aim at T-Series as YouTube subscriber gap closes
Despite this, the two stars are on good terms, and even met up in Japan to supposedly film a video together — but now, it looks like the gap is closing between MrBeast’s channel and that of T-Series.
Currently, MrBeast is the second most-subscribed channel on YouTube, running behind T-Series by just 73 million subscribers.
MrBeast took note of this comparison and vowed to take his revenge on the label “for PewDiePie,” waging a ‘war’ on the rival channel in a tweet posted on August 5.
Fans are already lining up in support of MrBeast, hoping that the YouTuber can overtake his longstanding rival — but this isn’t the first time Donaldson has waged war against T-Series.
In fact, MrBeast made similar comments earlier this year after a fan asked if he thought he could ever overtake T-Series.
“Easily,” MrBeast answered. “I’ll get revenge for Poods.”
For now, MrBeast is still in second place… but it’s unsure how long T-Series will remain on top.
