PewDiePie, a video game and comedy youtuber with over 45 million subscribers, released a video last week claiming his landlord kicked him and his team out of his apartment because he’s gay.
The UK resident and Swedish native, whose real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg and identifies as straight, gets millions of views on his almost daily videos. While shooting a video in April, it appears his landlord came and asked him to keep the noise down before calling his roommate a “faggot.” The interaction was caught on video below.
Kjellberg claimed its the first time he’s ever gotten a noise complaint and he actually shows the level of soundproofing the video maker uses in most of his video production.
“If you’re gonna be a landlord in Brighton, the gay capital of UK, maybe try not be a fuckin’ prejudiced piece of shit, how bout that?” he said in the video.
