Disney's Maker Studios Drops PewDiePie After Anti-Semitic Videos
PewDiePie, the social media star who reportedly is one of the highest paid YouTube stars, has been dropped by Disney's Maker Studios, after a series of anti-semitic videos posted to his channel. In one of the videos, PewDiePie (Felix Kjellberg) had people hold up a sign reading "death to all Jews." Kjellberg defended the videos as "a joke". The videos also included ones with Nazi symbols and imagery. PewDiePie reportedly was earning as much as $12M a year for his videos.
