To all who have been following Kjellberg, we know this day had to come. In an earlier post in 2019, PewDiePie had mentioned that he was tired of making videos and needed a break. He then deleted his Twitter account last month. It all gave us a hint of his exit from YouTube, but we didn’t know the day would come this soon! We hope that the YouTuber have a wonderful break and does not keep his fans waiting for too long for his comeback.
