Series topples PewDiePie in YouTube subscriber battle

Swedish YouTube star PewDiePie seems not to have taken his defeat well, after losing the world's top YouTube channel (in terms of subscribers) crown to Indian film and music label T-Series.

He implored his fans, which he refers to as his army of nine-year-olds, to stop T-Series' growth.

As of Saturday morning, T-Series remains the most popular channel on YouTube with almost 92 million subscribers.

Has the long-standing battle between the YouTube channels PewDiePie and T-Series over their subscriber count finally come to an end? He became the most-subscribed user on YouTube in December 2013. And for the last few months, the two YouTube giants have been locked in a fierce competition for who reaches 100 million subscribers first and becomes the most subscribed to channel on the website.

One person was critically injured and taken to a hospital, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department. A news release states detectives suspect that Holder fled in a 2016 Chevy Cruze that was waiting in an adjacent alley.

At the time of publishing this article, PewDiePie (92,377,551) had taken the crown back with a lead of 135,721 subscribers over T-Series (92,241,824 ).

"All it took was a massive corporate entity with every song in Bollywood", he snarkily remarked in the video. While I suppose you could say that Pewdiepie did technically concede to T-Series, I don't see the war stopping anytime soon. Pewdiepie's sarcastic congratulatory video definitely paid off.

In the past couple of months, PewDiePie's fans have been relentless in promoting his channels through various means - popular YouTubers buying billboards in their cities, hackers taking over printers, and making ransomware - to spread the "Subscribe to PewDiePie" message.

PewDiePie's campaign to guard his title against T-Series was also endorsed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who went on PewDiePie's show with "Rick and Morty" co-creator Justin Roiland in February in a bid to win more subscribers.
