PewDiePie's lyrics targeting CoComelon and JK Rowling may have gotten YouTube angry enough to pull the video down
YouTubestar PewDiePie’s latest diss track Coco has been pulled from the video streaming platform for violating its guidelines.
- In the lyrics, PewDiePie takes a shot at kids entertainment channel
CoComelon, Harry Potter book series author JK Rowlingand American rapper 6ix9ine.
- The reason behind the diss track seems to be that it was gaining on PewDiePie with 105 million subscribers.
The song took a shot at the YouTube kids entertainment channel CoComelon, Harry Potter book series author JK Rowling and American rapper 6ix9ine.
According to fans, the reason that PewDiePie — who's real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellber — went after CoComelon is because it was gaining traction with nearly 105 million subscribers in its kitty against PewDiePie’s 109 million.

“Yeah, I saw your shit
Ew, f**kin’ cringe (Ew)
It’s not even funny and your head is really big (Why)
Oh, you’re approaching me?
What, you think I’m nervous? (Nah)
Your audience is just a bunch of motherf**kin’ virgins.”
PewDiePie also lashed out at Rowling with the lyrics, “I’ll spoil Harry Potter, wait, JK already did that,” hinting at some of the comments she made about the transgender community in June, last year.
Not PewDiePie’s first tryst with diss tracks
This is not the first time that the YouTube star produced a diss track targeting another popular platform. In 2018, PewDiePie released Bitch Lasagna — originally titled
The track, while dissing T-Series, was accused for being very racially discriminating against Indians in general.
The two sides battled it out for months, before T-Series came out ahead as the most subscribed channel on the platform.
Meanwhile, YouTube was criticised for its lax approach to harassment. It was only after this incident that it updated its policies to bolster protections in 2019.
“Our policies prohibit content that leads to repeated patterns of harassment on- and off-platform,” YouTube said in a statement. “Following a review, we’ve removed the video in question for violating those policies because they had the effect of encouraging abusive fan behavior.”
It would seem that YouTube chose to take down Coco to prevent similar harassment of Cocomelon after the T-Series incident.
