A few months ago, PewDiePie's position as the most subscribed creator was jeopardized by the rise of a rival channel called the T-Series, which primarily uploads Indian music videos. In response, PewDiePie and his community have created the "subscribe to PewDiePie" memo to help the creator maintain its place on YouTube. However, some PewDiePie fans have taken the meme "subscribing to PewDiePie" too far, and now PewDiePie is asking for the meme to be canceled.
"I think it's time to subscribe to the PewDiePie movement or meme," PewDiePie said in his latest video.

"Out of respect for the affected families and victims, I chose not to speak any further than Twitter, where I did not accept the actions taken that day," said PewDiePie. "Linking my name to such an indescribably vile thing touched me more than I might have shown."
"I did not want to pay any more attention to the terrorist. I did not want to talk about myself. […] To put it simply: I did not want hate to win. Now I realize that the move to "subscribe to PewDiePie" should be finished. "
PewDiePie then talked about the tracks of the T-Series diss and how the Delhi High Court banned the songs." That was all done so it's fun, but it's definitely not fun anymore And out of respect, I'll keep the videos locked. "
