Who has the most subscribers on YouTube in 2022? Who is better between PewDiePie and T-Series? Everything to know about the two popular YouTube channels.
PewDiePie vs T-Series was an online competition between two YouTube channels, PewDiePie (run by Felix Kjellberg) and T-Series (run by an Indian record company of the same name) for the title of the most-subscribed channel on YouTube. T-Series has held the title of the most-viewed channel since early 2017, and PewDiePie had been the most-subscribed channel since 2013. The rivalry between the two channels began when T-Series’ subscriber count began to near PewDiePie’s in late 2018.
Many YouTubers voiced their support for PewDiePie, including Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, MrBeast, and Logan Paul. Many of his fans made efforts to gain subscribers for his channel in numerous ways, including organised marches and supportive YouTube videos. Supporters of PewDiePie often used the slogan “Subscribe to PewDiePie”. The activism of some supporters extended beyond legal grounds; vandalism, hacking of websites, social media accounts, personal devices, and the creation of malware had taken place to urge people to subscribe. “Bitch Lasagna”, a diss track by PewDiePie, and the use of anti-Indian remarks by his fans led several prominent Indian YouTubers to publicly oppose PewDiePie and back T-Series with YouTube videos and response diss tracks.
T-Series temporarily overtook PewDiePie in subscribers on numerous occasions in 2019. On 28 April, PewDiePie released a video calling for his supporters to end their efforts to keep him as the most subscribed channel, and with the significant lead now held by T-Series, the competition is generally presumed to have ended with T-Series winning.
