PewDiePie fans were left saddened by the news that his Roblox account had been banned, because Roblox and PDP are key ingredients for memes, of course.
However, the undisputed (for now) king of YouTube tweeted to confirm that we don’t need to worry, because his account has been reinstated by Roblox staff members.

People were quick to celebrate the news on Twitter, where fellow YouTuber CinnamonToastKen replied sarcastically with: “Oh thank God. Now we can continue to play the game always like we always do and definitely not make fun of it.”
Oh thank God. Now we can continue to play the game always like we always do and definitely not make fun of it.

The gaming community’s appreciation of Roblox has shot up massively, with many praising the game for doing the right thing in the face of controversy.
Thank you Roblox, very cool!

Does this mean we can expect more Roblox memes from Pewds?
In other PDP news, a change.org petition has been set up by an Apex Legends fan who claims that “Pewdiedie has RUINED EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES” and needs to be banned from the free-to-play battle royale game.
The petition states: “Pewdiedie has RUINED EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES! keep him away from a great game like Apex Legends!
“The game has so much more to give before it dies and with Fortnite coming back from the competition, pewdiepie playing the game would be a death sentence for such a promising game… SO PLEASE! help us keep the game alive and well with a signature and a share!”
It’s not seeing a huge amount of support though. At the time of writing just six people have signed, and of the two comments from supporters, one simply says: “Lets not let this game die :(”
Do you want PDP to play Apex Legends?
