PewDiePie got suspended from Twitter after making an ISIS joke


PewDiePie – the most popular YouTuber,at about 47 million subscribers – has just been suspended from Twitter. The suspension appears to stem from a joke PewDiePie (whose real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg) made about joining ISIS with fellow YouTuber Jacksepticeye. This originally led to PewDiePie becoming unverified – because making jokes in poor taste makes you less of a real public figure, apparently. He then retweeted a post from parody account @SkyNeiws, which claimed PewDiePie had his account unverified due to “suspected relations with Isis”: Popular YouTuber @pewdiepie unverified due to suspected relations with ISIS https://t.co/iElCWtBzpU pic.twitter.com/x2L0INKVU5 — Sky News…
