YouTube have removed Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s diss track on the Cocomelon channel for violating platform guidelines around cyberbullying and child safety.
In his d12 years on YouTube, PewDiePie has gotten into some interesting/Crazy beefs with other big channels, with the outcome usually being him settling the drama with a pretty funny joke, a video, or more recently, a diss track.
“PewDiePie viewers ate up his lyrics on ‘B**ch Lasagna’ when he was embroiled in a battle with T-Series to be the most subscribed channel, and on February 14, the YouTuber dropped another diss track.
This time though, it was aimed at children’s channel Cocomelon – though he did call out rapper 6ix9ine in there too. However, if fans want to listen to it now, it’s been taken down by YouTube. “
On February 19th, fans of the Swede noted that the song had disappeared from his channel and quizzed YouTube’s support on why this was the case.
The Reason of his video taken down was on twitter, were they said “This video violated two policies: 1) Child safety: by looking like it was made for kids but containing inappropriate content. 2) Harassment: by inciting harassment @ other creators– we allow criticism but this crossed the line.” They even tweeted the highlighted section of the polices the video broke.
“Any reuploads of the original, including full length or partial reuploads, clips, etc will be removed too. Still images are ok.”
Some fans accused the platform of double standards in the comments, “noting that there is plenty of adult content on YouTube that violates similar guidelines but is not taken down.”
