The long-standing YouTube subscriber battle between popular YouTuber PewDiePie and Indian music and film company T-Series came to an end when PewDiePie yesterday when he released a video conceding defeat and congratulating T-Series. However, the congratulatory message was filled with nasty and mean comments and casual racism towards Indians.
He starts off the video by congratulating T-Series for taking over him in terms of the number of subscribers and soon moves on to taking personal digs.
The four-minute long video, the Swedish YouTuber mocks T-Series for taking over for being a ‘corporation’ with ‘every song in Bollywood’. He then says, now that you (T-Series) is number one, hope you did nothing wrong, like starting off the business by selling pirated songs and other allegations like tax evasion and tries to ‘joke’ how they’ve had their run-ins with the mafia.
He then says how despite all the memes, he loves his ‘Indian bros from Bombay to Bangladesh’. He then says Indians have ‘poopoo’ in their brains and amidst his casual racism tries to take a dig on caste system and poverty in India. “India got YouTube figured out…How about next you figure how to fix the caste system… Maybe all those ads will solve your crippling poverty. But looking at T-Series’ past, I am guessing not probably,” he raps.
“Hope the #MeToo stuff doesn’t severely affect your bottom line,” he shouts towards the end of the rant.
Some sore loser!
