PewDiePie says he’s going to ditch his 50 million YouTube subscribers on Friday

He has more than 50 million channel subscribers, and nearly 14 billion video views since arriving on the streaming service six years ago.

Earlier this week, Forbes listed him as the top-earning YouTuber, raking in $15 million for the 12 months ending in June.

So, you know, he s doing pretty well.

Whether PewDiePie – real name Felix Kjellberg – really will hit the delete button remains to be seen, but YouTube s top vlogger clearly isn t happy with the video streaming giant.

His main gripe stems from the fact that his videos are receiving fewer views than before, a change that he apparently thinks is down to some unexplained changes at YouTube, as well as some odd site behaviour, rather than fans becoming ex-fans.

In a video posted last Friday, the Swedish-born, London-based vlogger claimed YouTube is unsubscribing people from channels without their knowledge, so they don t get to hear about new videos.
