PewDiePie's finding himself in trouble for letting out a few racist lines again.

Netizens have started to rally against the gamer after the YouTube personality used the n-word during a PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds livestream, and it looks like some are hoping to take down his Firewatch Content.


Yesterday, a video of PewDiePie managed to make its way online, and while his game of PlayerUnknown seemed pretty innocent at first, the YouTube celebrity found himself letting out the "n_ word while shooting on a bridge after feeling upset over the actions of another character.

"What a f-ing n-word, jeez, oh my god, what the f-? What a f-ing asshole," PewDiePie lets out while playing.

Being a livestream video, the clip was easily recorded and then posted on several channels.

Developer Sean Vanaman noticed the video and found himself offended by the slur. Taking to Twitter, the developer promised that he'd try to file a DMCA takedown of PewDiePie's videos.

This isn't the first time PewDiePie's gotten into trouble. The YouTube Celebrity also stirred up controversy after posting anti-Semitic videos with some featuring two mean holding a sign that read "Death To All Jews" and others showing clips of Hitler with animated swastikas around him. Though PewDiePie is a popular YouTube celebrity, he certainly has to try and fix his act.
