PewDiePie is one of the most subscribed to uploaders on YouTube. He’s famous for his “Let’s Play” videos and “edgy humour.”
In around 2018 I was recommended one of his Meme Review videos by the infamous YouTube Algorithm. After watching that I was recommended more of his content and I enjoyed it enough to subscribe to him.
I watched him play Minecraft, which I was just starting to play, and I found it very strange that he turned most things about the innocent-looking game into something twisted. The man was obsessed with sex inside the game, and for a man who has a mainly very young audience, I found it to be distasteful to say the very least.
For a man who has openly said that his base audience is very young to then be sexualising content geared towards that audience, it is very disturbing.
Children today are being sexualised by media giants all around the world. And PewDiePie is seemingly no different to this trend.
PewDiePie recently married his long term partner and retired YouTuber, Marzia. And since then he has continued the sexual themes of his “edgy jokes” but to now include his wife in them.
Since iDubbbz girlfriend opened an OnlyFans account themes of Cuckoldry have been openly discussed on his channel. He has “joked” about his wife having a boyfriend and other sexual content, again, normalising sexual deviancy to young minds.
It appears PewDiePie will state that this is his edgy humour and I just don’t understand it, but in truth, these are not jokes that children should be subjected to on a daily basis.
If you are a parent of a child who is subscribed to this man on YouTube, I would recommend that you watch his content to see if it is appropriate for your child.
I’d also note the YouTube Terms Of Service here: You must be at least 13 years old to use the Service. However, children of all ages may use YouTube Kids (where available) if enabled by a parent or legal guardian. If you are under 18, you represent that you have your parent or guardian’s permission to use the Service.
As a result of his decent into degeneracy, I will no longer be watching his videos and I intend to unsubscribe. I think YouTube should no longer recommend his content on the platform, especially to anyone under the age of 18 as stated in the above Terms of Service.
