YouTube and Walt Disney Co have cut their ties with influential Swedish social media star PewDiePie after he posted a series of videos deemed anti-Semitic. YouTube said it had canceled the second season of the comedian's reality show, "Scare PewDiePie," and taken his channel, which has some 53 million followers, off its premium advertising service. "We've decided to cancel the release of 'Scare PewDiePie' season 2 and we're removing the PewDiePie channel from Google Preferred," a YouTube representative told Hollywood trade publication Variety on Tuesday.
