Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg needs no introduction to gamers as he is one of the biggest ever YouTube stars with over 101 million subscribers at the time of writing. He has also seen his fair share of controversy over the years and now it seems that PewDiePie has been banned in China.
In one of his Meme Review videos posted earlier this month, PewDiePie shared a series of memes, one of which compared the Chinese president Xi Jinping to Winnie-the-Pooh (which has been banned in China since 2017) and PewDiePie even said “The resemblance is uncanny.” pointing towards the meme in his Meme Review.
In that same video, PewDiePie also talked about Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai, a Grandmaster Hearthstone player, was banned for voicing his political opinion on the Hong Kong riots during a Hearthstone Grandmasters tournament stream, which then led to the “Boycott Blizzard” movement and even Blizzard employees walking out.
Now, PewDiePie is banned in China, blacklisted from searches in the country. In a new video which you can view at the bottom of this article, he shows what happens when you Google his channel from China. No results found…
Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg explains that:
That is very unfortunate for Chinese fans but apparently, they can still find re-uploads of his videos on other websites right now if they search hard enough.
