In the video, he also pointed out an article in which it was reported that T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar was investigated for alleged huge tax evasion. His early videos focused on him reacting to frightening elements in horror games, but he quickly began incorporating other gaming and general comedy elements to his YouTube channel.
T-Series has edged ahead a few times, and this weekend overtook PewDiePie once again.
As of Saturday morning, T-Series remains the most popular channel on YouTube with almost 92 million subscribers.
The battle between PewDiePie and T-Series for the most popular YouTube channel has been essentially finished for the past week or so. PewDiePie had previously held the number one spot since 2013. In fact, at the time that this article was written, Pewdiepie has nearly 52,000 more subscribers than T-Series, according to the live subscriber count. However, the video is not exclusive of the dig at the victor as he uses the word "Congratulations" too and also thanked his fans who stuck with him all throughout.
"If T-Series beats PewDiePie the private key will be deleted and your files gone forever", the ransom note threatens. "And all it took was a massive corporate entity with every song in Bollywood", PewDiePie raps on the diss track.
"Initially, the creator stated in the ransom note that the decryption would not be released unless PewDiePie reached 100 million subscribers, meaning if that didn't happen then people would have no means of decrypting their data", the report said quoting Michael Gillespie, a researcher at cybersecurity firm Emsisoft. Support for T-Series was also extended by Bollywood actors on Twitter.
In another video commenting on the battle for subs, PewDiePie joked: "Who cares about sub count anyway?"
And to all the Pakistanis gloating at how Pewdiepie just "took down India", trust me when I say this if he's racist against Indians, he will sure as well be racist against Pakistanis.
