PewDiePie will be the tide that raises all boats, this is an undeniable fact. Trying to “cancel” the dude for using an existing technology is hilarious.
Swedish internet star PewDiePie recently returned from a break with an avatar no one was expecting. Following in the steps of Dream and Corpse Husband, PewDiePie asked his fans to help him “pick a new face,” The idea was to do a reverse face reveal, where he goes hidden.
With this in mind, he hosted a stream as a VTuber. Twitter users have now gone into a frenzy over it, calling for PewDiePie to be “cancelled.”
Following his debut as a VTuber, Twitter users didn’t take kindly to his adoption of the avatar. They stated concerns of white supremacy, and why this move is bad for the VTuber community.
Many fans believe this will negatively impact the VTuber community despite the exposure that PewDiePie will bring. The main contention was that the community will be flooded with PewDiePie’s allegedly “edgy” fanbase.
