PewDiePie is second to the most subscribed Youtube channel to date, with over 99.5 million subscribers and counting. He took number one spot in 2013 and has raked in over 100 million subscribers in the span of 6 years.
He is most known for his gameplays (specifically Minecraft), meme ratings, comedic shows, and game commentaries.
The vlogger has stirred controversy in the past, being called out for releasing a video with anti-Semitic messaging, using racial language in live streams, and other derogatory remarks.
Marzia is also an internet personality and a former Youtube vlogger. She has since quit the platform to focus on her mental health and is now spearheading her own lifestyle and clothing brands. – Rappler.com
