      Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg better known as PewDiePie has said that when his YouTube channel reaches 50 million subscribers he will delete his YouTube channel.

      At time of writing he is now at 49,900,136 which is very close to that mark. Many people do not believe he will do it whereas others have said he will and then create a new one.

      What do you think? Will PewDiePie delete his channel at 50 million?

      He hit the mark and will be deleting his channel soon. It will be fun to see if it does it or not or pull some cheap move.

      Keeping an eye on it. He was supposed to be going live this weekend today and tomorrow for a charity event 'Cringemas' however whether he will delete and do it elsewhere (which is possible) or if he will keep it going until after that is another story. I understand he is not happy with changes YouTube have made hence his decision.

      Well he did delete a channel, a side channel. His main channel is life and well.

      Personally, if it were me, I would rather leave YouTube and leave my channel inactive, while still available to my viewers, than just delete it.

      apparently a few people downloaded all his videos, so his content is safe for a very long time.

      Turns out he did delete his account :) another account he had that that didn't have as many subscribers :) (fair play to him he didn't say exactly which channel he was deleting once he reached 50 million)

      He has now said if he reaches 100 million he will delete his main account 'PewDiePie'

      the guy is really baiting people good. I highly doubt he would do it.

      I don't think he will, he is well known for trolling but seeing people take the bait is pretty funny. I think he will continue until people stop taking the bait :)
