PewDiePie surpasses 100 million YouTube subscribers


Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg’s YouTube channel has surpassed 100 million subscribers.

In doing so, he becomes the first solo content creator on the platform to take the leap.

Since joining YouTube in April 2010, PewDiePie’s channel has garnered some 100,300,000 subscribers, and his videos have garnered more than 23 billion views.

Indian music label and film studio T-Series has the largest YouTube channel in terms of subscribers. Since its launch in March 2006, it has amassed some 109,700,000 subscribers, while its videos have been viewed over 80.6 billion times.

In third place is 5-Minute Crafts with 60 million subscribers, Forbes reports.

While PewDiePie is best known for his Let’s Play gaming videos, he has created a range of content over the years and attracted controversialin particular for having published videos containing anti-Semitic jokes or Nazi images.

His very first YouTube upload was a Minecraft video and he recently returned to the series, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in May. PewDiePie has released a series of Minecraft videos since June, many of which surpass 10 million views.

YouTube praised PewDiePie for his achievements on the platform — and his marriage to partner Marzia earlier in August — on Twitter.
