Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg may be YouTube’s highest-grossing user, but he’s also back in the limelight for his use of a racial slur.
But it’s not his first time at the racist rodeo.
On Sunday afternoon, Kjellberg, 27, was streaming and playing “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds,” when he went on a rant, and let the n-word “slip” through:

“What a fucking nigger,” the Swede said: “Jeez, oh my God! What the fuck? Sorry, but what the fuck? What a fucking asshole. I don’t mean that in a bad way.”
According to Mashable, Kjellberg tried to defend his use of the word saying, “[The other player] did a dick move, and I tried to think of the worst word. And I end up saying nigger. I know that no one watching gives a shit.”
