PewDiePie takes dig at India after YouTube defeat to T-Series, releases offensive 'congratulations' video

Swedish YouTube star PewDiePie seems not to have taken well his defeat as the one with the Worlds No.1 YouTube channel after Indian film and music label T-Series took the lead, as he took a dig at India, pointing out the poverty and caste system in the country.

PewDiePie, aka Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, made a new video on his YouTube channel in which he accused T-series of selling pirated songs. 

In the video, he also pointed out a new article in which it was reported that T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar was investigated for alleged huge tax evasion.

He added: "Indians are poo poo in their brains", apart from talking about India's poverty and caste system.

"India got YouTube figured out...How about next you figure how to fix the caste system... May be all those ads will solve your crippling poverty," PewDiePie said.

The battle between the two channels was going on for long but last month T-Series finally won the race by garnering more subscribers.

T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar started the #BharatWins campaign on social media, urging people to help in making T-Series the world's most subscribed YouTube channel.

Many Bollywood celebrities such as Salman Khan, Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor and John Abraham joined the online battle between PewDiePie and YouTube, to plead with netizens to subscribe to T-Series' channel on YouTube.

Swedish YouTube channel PewDiePie has also received support from many international celebrities.
