Netizens Criticise PewDiePie for making fun of deaf TikTok star Scarlet May

PewDiePie is slammed for an unknown act

Netizens are attacking the renowned YouTuber PewDiePie because he made some hasty jokes on his channel. All this happened when Felix Kjellberg made jokes about deaf TikTok star Scarlet May using sign language. It all started when the YouTube sensation decided to review some “cringe” TikToks on his channel with his pet dog, titling his video “My Dog Cringes at TikToks.”

PewDiePie responded to one of May’s TikTok videos where she is seen describing an experience in her car without knowing who she was. She continues to chat to her audience while filming the footage and expresses herself with her gestures. Felix’s response claimed that the TikToker was simply waving her arms in a “cringe-worthy” video, but the reality was far different. She has gained over 6.2 million followers on the app, many of whom are undoubtedly deaf viewers.

PewDiePie made fun of Scarlet May

The TikToker shared a video on July 18 in which she donned long, silver acrylic nails and narrated a humorous story from a fast food drive-thru. PewDiePie made a snap decision after watching the video on his reaction episode, stopping the clip and declaring, “I’m not listening to this.” He then imitated the creator’s signing with his dog’s hands to make fun of her.

PewDiePie removed the offending footage

PewDiePie quickly removed the offending footage from his reaction video after viewers pointed out his error. He also issued an apology that stated, “Hey, just to clear a few things up: I edited out the clip with the girl that has the long nails. Had no clue she was deaf, but kinda dumb of me to not realize.. Still watching through the clip I only poked fun of her long nails. The voice I did for my dog is the same voice I’ve given her for years. (edit: ..and making my dog’s paws move was poking at people always dancing or doing some move on tiktok, which is an ongoing theme in the whole video). Anyway honest mistake, my bad.”
