PewDiePie 'not salty' at YouTube for not including him in 2017 Rewind

NEWSWATCH: Swedish comedian Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie (PDP) was not included in YouTube's Rewind this year, for the first time since he made his debut appearance in the round-up in 2013.

In response, he released a video in which he comments on not being included, suggesting there are no hard feelings between him and the video-sharing platform. Uncertain of the reason for being left out, Metro believes it has something to do with his controversial comments.

"It’s sad in a way, that I’m not part of it. But like, I understand why, like I’m not salty at YouTube for not inviting me. But at the end of the day I care more about YouTube. I care more about what’s good for YouTube, what’s good for the platform, then being in it and… pissing people off."
