    Roblox is a massively popular sandbox that allows its users - who are mainly kids and teenagers - to create cartoony, Lego-style games. Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie turned to the platform in a desperate attempt to widen the subscriber gap with his powerful rival YouTube channel T-Series.

    PewDiePie was banned on Roblox, one the world's largest online social gaming platforms, after he live streamed himself in a bid to remain at the top of YouTube's most-subscribed channels.

    "PewDiePie is no longer permitted on Roblox due to his content redirecting to unsafe and inappropriate sites/channels, as well as continued inappropriate behaviour, that would not be permitted on Roblox, on his own channel," said a Roblox staff member.

    With the reason of the ban being unclear, some Pewds' fanboys said that it is not legitimate because he did not violate the platform's rules and that he was kicked out for some off-site actions.

    One fan has noticed that a user cannot register on Roblox as "pewdiepie" because this name is apparently considered "not appropriate" as well.

    A conspiracy theory has emerged, suggesting that Roblox co-operated with PewDiePie's arch-nemesis, T-Series, in a bid to dethrone him.

    PewDiePie (real name: Felix Kjellberg) has been the world's most-subscribed YouTuber since 2013. For the past several months, Internet users have been sitting on the edge of the computer chairs, watching Indian record label T-Series swiftly narrow the gap with Felix, which at the time of the writing stands at some 52,000 subscribers.
