The 27-year-old Swedish, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, began his channel in 2010 and become the most-subscribed YouTuber in August 2013, thanks to his loyal following known as the "Bro Army".

In his video titled 'DELETING MY CHANNEL AT 50 MILLION', he claimed the changes to YouTube have ruined the video sharing site

The normally loud and fun Kjellberg branded YouTube as a "toddler playing with knives" for messing up the effectiveness of the recommended videos feature. He suggested that the new algorithms promote clickbait.

"YouTube is trying to kill my channel. It is clear. It is happening if you watch my analytics. It is all going down."

His rant didn't stop there. The video producer also pointed out that the subscription feature had become faulty, with some users being unsubscribed without their knowledge.

However, as angry as he is, the gaming icon isn't actually planning to quit YouTube - he just wants to start again with a new channel after deleting his existing one
