Fans of Respawn Entertainment’s recently-released Apex Legends are petitioning to keep PewDiePie away from the game by banning him.
A change.org petition has been set up by an Apex 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 :(”
PewDiePie has been known for avoiding games like Fortnite and Roblox – so much so that they’ve become a meme in his fandom. However, in the subscriber war against T-Series, the YouTuber took to livestreaming them to help increase his numbers.
It worked, with the sub gap rising from less than 10k all the way up to 100k in just a few hours.
Unfortunately for the change.org petition, it seems like most people desperately want to see PDP play some Apex Legends.
Play apex legends to defeat t series.

Sub gap below 10k stream Apex to survive

With the highest number of subscribers in the world, it can’t really be true that everything he touches is “ruined,” right…?
