Roughly a month after uploading a video containing anti-Semitic remarks — "Death To All Jews," to be more specific — YouTube has canceled the show of its highest-paid star, PewDiePie.

According to Variety, PewDiePie will no longer be able to stream the second season of Scare PewDiePie, a 10 dollar-a-month show that aimed to scare Kjellberg IRL in an elaborate, video-game inspired manner. Furthermore, YouTube is removing PewDiePie from “Google Preferred,” an advertising service for “brand-safe” content, as his series clearly does not fit the qualification(s).

PewDiePie will however still be able to monetize his videos on YouTube, although his normal income-per-view is significantly lower due to not being a family-friendly show, meaning advertisers tend to steer clear.

When addressing his anti-Semitic conduct, PewDiePie insisted that he didn’t intend his ongoing Nazi references to support anti-Semitism, saying “I was trying to show how crazy the modern world is, specifically some of the services available online. I picked something that seemed absurd to me—That people on Fiverr would say anything for 5 dollars.”
