PewDiePie who has been the biggest YouTuber on the platform has held the crown of the highest number of subscribers, almost lost the throne to Indian Music Company T-series. T-series, a Bollywood production company has been working its way up to overtake PewDiePie for a few months now.
The two channels have been neck-and-neck for months now. Reports also suggest back in February for eight minutes, T-Series overtook PewDiePie. And on Monday morning, it carved out a lead for more than two hours with 50,000 follower.
T-Series pulling ahead, PewDiePie retweeted a call for people to subscribe to his channel. There has been another hashtag that supports PewDiePie saying people should support Creators over companies on YouTube.
Last week reports emerged that the gunman at the Christchurch massacre in New Zealand yelled the words “subscribe to PewDiePie” during the attack. PewDiePie later took to Twitter and said he felt absolutely sickened having his name uttered by this person.
