PewDiePie and T-series rivalry is not just heating up on Youtube anymore. It’s spreading to the courtroom as PewDiePie’s diss tracks, “Congratulations” and “Bitch Lasagna” (Both videos found below) are now blocked in India thanks to T-series filing a take down order. On April 10th, T-Series had filed with the high court, ruling that he must “remove and disable access” the songs.
“Congratulations” itself was pretty harsh to T-series, at first glance seemingly congratulatory to them for surpassing PewDiePie’s subscriber count. But as the song goes on it digs deep and even suggests that there is some illegal activity with the company. Now neither song will just display as a “This video is not available” if tried to be accessed in India.
Why is T-Series going after Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg?
PewDiePie and T-Series have been in a subscriber supremacy battle since late last year. PewDiePie has held the position for nearly eight years, and now they seem to be in a deadlock, going back and fourth. As of this writing PewDiePie is in a slight lead.
Considering T-Series is actually pursuing legal action, they must be taking PewDiePie as a legitimate threat. I can’t imagine that going after PewDiePie in court is going to help them outside their own country, and they may start to lose subscribers (hopefully). They have previously mentioned that surpassing PewDiePie would bring national pride to the country, and it seems they are taking it a little too seriously. By the way, subscribe to PewDiePie.
