PewDiePie pays special tribute to Sushant Singh Rajput and calls it a huge loss

The Swedish born YouTube star Felix Kjellberg is one of the biggest YouTube celebrities for many years now. Felix aka PewDiePie has over 100 million followers and recently lost the title of the most subscribed channel to the Indian music platform T Series. In a recent video, PewDiePie responded to the viral hashtag #Unsubscribe T Series. He also spoke about the unfortunate death of Sushant Singh Rajput. He said, "He seemed like such a good dude, like a genuinely good dude."
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Bandra home in Mumbai. He died on June 14 and was suffering from depression for a while.
PewDiePie further said, "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 it 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. I don't know everything about him but from what I saw he seemed a really good dude and someone the industry needs. So it's a huge loss. Rest in peace."
PewDiePie also said that he does not want to continue his fight against T Series even as a joke. PewDiePie said that nepotism truly takes a toll on young celebrities in India. PewDiePie previously made a diss video about India called 'Bitch Lasagna.'
Meanwhile, the Mumbai police have confirmed that they are looking at all possible scenarios behind Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
