PewDiePie was reacting to his usual fan submissions from his subreddit, where a fan submitted a post on the recent #UnsubscribeTSeries trend in India, when he said that the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Sigh Rajput was a loss to the industry.
At the same time, the Swedish YouTuber refused to talk about T-series, saying he has passed this phase.
Though PewDiePie agreed he didn’t know much about Sushant, he suggested that the actor was “genuinely a good guy”, who might have become a victim of purported nepotism in the Hindi movie industry.
"I have seen people talk about it and there was something about Sushant Singh Rajput. It was a university talk of this guy. Some people were pointing to nepotism in the industry and then somehow got in a clash with T-Series and that is why Unsub T-Series got trending. It's such a shame he decided to end his life", said Felix.
The YouTuber, however, added that he didn’t want to talk about T-series to make a controversy out of it yet again.
T-series recently landed in hot water in India when the debate over nepotism triggered by the suicide of 34-year-old actor erupted. Several actors and people within the industry blamed the Singh's death on the existence of a "mafia" in Bollywood which doesn’t let outsiders evolve.
