6. The PewDiePie controversy

PewDiePie has been the highest earning or one of the highest earning YouTube stars for a decade. In 2018, he was the 9th highest paid YouTube star with $15.5 million in earnings. In February 2017, he lost his YouTube Red show when it was revealed that several of his videos contained anti-Semitic references. PewDiePie claimed the videos were sarcastic and merely meant to highlight how people will do anything for money, no matter how inappropriate or shocking. In the most obvious example, he paid two people $5 through the website fiver to hold up a sign that said, "Death to all Jews". Then, on September 10 of the same year, another video showed PewDiePie casually using the "n word." While playing a game, the YouTuber was heard very clearly saying: "What a f—ing ni—r! Jeez! Oh my God! What the f—? Sorry, but what the f—?"
