Felix Kjellberg has made a name for himself through video games and other content creation as he ushered in the age of streaming. However, things have been rough for the YouTuber over the past few years after being cut from Disney in 2017 after anti-Semitic imagery was spotted in his videos. He was then caught up in an “n-word” fiasco which caused him to publically apologize for using the word during a stream.
However, PewDiePie did appear in the latest YouTube Rewind which marks the first time in two years that Google included him in the yearly roundup.
PewDiePie’s best video of the year has to be the one where he mocked former South African President Jacob Zuma in a skit poking fun at his speech, behaviour and his inability to read numbers.
After all the controversy and constant working, we think the YouTuber needs a break. We all do sometimes. Catch up on the PewDiePie Jacob Zuma video down below.
