YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg may have finally lost his crown, thanks to the ever-increasing sub-count of Bollywood label T-Series.

UPDATE: PewDiePie has overtaken T-Series once again, just a short time after being defeated by the label. As of 12:25 PM PST on March 20, PewDiePie has risen over 2,000 subs above T-Series – but no one knows how long his lead will last.

T-Series overtook PewDiePie by a whopping 10,000 subscribers on March 20, after a nearly six-month struggle between the two.

FlareTV, YouTubeT-Series surpassed PewDiePie by 10,000 subscribers on March 20 – although the YouTube king quickly took back his crown.

While the label has previously surpassed Kjellberg a few times, the YouTuber always managed to bounce back, thanks to his dedicated fanbase; however, at this point, there’s no telling if he will climb back to the top.

One of Kjellberg’s more memorable losses came just after an automated audit performed by YouTube in late February, which lost the YouTuber over 20,000 subscribers during a pivotal moment in their race.

Although no evidence of such an audit has yet come forth, T-Series’ sudden spike in subscribers is raising fans’ eyebrows across the space.

Following T-Series’ most recent victory, Kjellberg managed to boost their gap to just over 4,000 subscribers – but things are still looking grim for YouTube’s fallen king.

This development follows the tragic shootings at two Mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, where a gunman urged viewers of the livestreamed massacre to “subscribe to PewDiePie” before opening fire.

While PewDiePie vehemently decried the violence, he has since unfollowed all but one account on Twitter, after receiving multiple death threats in relation to the individuals he’d previously followed on the social media platform in wake of the shooting.

Nothing stopped her fans from speculating about some of the reasons why she might have disabled her account, which had around 16.2 million followers, and 158.4 million clip likes.

Although she didn’t address the situation directly, Millie appeared to post a short explanation to her Instagram story, saying “realizing that surrounding yourself with positivity is the happiest way of living! No hate, and only love. Remember to be kind. Thank you.”

It’s not the first time Brown has deleted a social media account either. She deleted her Twitter account all the way back in 2018 due to a series of “disgusting” memes, and she may very well have done the same this time around too.

Of course, her TikTok videos will be sorely missed. They always managed to brighten people’s days. Still, it’s important to remember there’s an actual person behind the spotlight.
