Just recently, we have reported that the old king of Youtube - Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg – has publicly declared that he wanted to put an end to the “Subscribe to Pewdiepie” trend. The Youtuber has made his statement in a very touching video on his Youtube channel. However, his words did not have any effect in stopping his fans from doing their plans.

Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has been involving in the biggest Youtube battle in history so far against the Bollywood corporation T-Series. This battle has soon become the race for the 100 million subscriber milestone. And this “Subscribe to Pewdiepie” campaign has been the main weapon of Pew against T-Series. Due to the huge fanbase of Pew, this campaign has quickly turned in to a trend all over the internet world, with a lot of memes about it.

But sadly, after nearly seven months since it was introduced, we have seen this trend resulted in some negative effects. We have some hackers created computer viruses for this trend. There have been fans of Pew damaging the WWII memorial by writing “Subscribe to Pewdiepie” on it. And the most horrible incident was when the shooter in the Christchurch shooting in New Zealand saying “Subscribe to Pewdiepie” before committing his crime.

Because Pew himself can no longer control his fans with the trend, he has decided to put a stop to the trend via a statement in a Youtube clip on April 28th. This video was a touching statement of Pew, but his fans are more tenacious than Pew himself. There has been a plan from the fans of Pew to hire a plane flying around Manhattan, New York with the banner saying “Subscribe to PewDiePie”, and they still went for their plan, despite Pew’s words.

Those fans have been planning this for quite a long time. They even created a campaign in the PewDiePieSubmissions subreddit to raise money for this activity. And they gathered more than $4000 dollar (nearly Rs 280,000), so the plan was still executed.

This action shows that even Pew himself wants to end the trend, his fans might still keep it alive.
