Popular YouTuber Felix 'PewDiePie' Kjellberg has finally broken his silence after his highly-anticipated diss track 'Coco' was deleted from YouTube, with the platform citing 'harassment'. 

In his most recent upload, he ended the video with an apology to fans, saying: "That’s alright, I was a bit p*ssed off I’m not gonna lie, for a couple of days, but I'm over it.

"I really, really wanna thank you guys for all the support, especially during times like these, man. I appreciate you. Thank you. Thank you for all the subs, I’m sorry to everyone who worked hard on the video. That’s what I feel worst about. It was just supposed to be a fun thing for the fans, but hopefully the ones that saw it got to see it at least (laughs). It’s out on Spotify if you want to check it out, but that’s it from me for now."

The song appeared to mark the end of the ongoing joke between his own channel, and that of Cocomelon - a YouTube phenomenon that aims its content at children. As a result, they boast an eye-watering 105 million subscribers. PewDiePie's follower count is only marginally ahead, with 109 million. 

In the diss track, Pewds sings lyrics in the style of a nursey rhyme, with highlights including: "F**k your daddy, f**k your mummy too. F**k everything you love, most of all f**k you.’ At another point, he says: "Spartan s**t, yeet a baby off a cliff. If they make it out alive, I’ll be their Make A Wish."

Other parts of the video take aim at Tekashi 6ix9ine, for no apparent reason whatsoever.

Fans were shocked when the video was removed from YouTube, and one shared a screenshot showing that the song was gone.

YouTube replied: "(1/2) Jumping in to clarify–this video was removed for violating two policies: 1) Child safety: images/themes for kids but containing inappropriate content 2) Harassment: by inciting harassment @ other creators, we allow criticism but this crossed the line. Details in image below. ‘(2/2) Also note: any reuploads of the original, including full length or partial reuploads, clips, etc will be removed too. Still images are ok. Also dropping the policy links below for reference."

In a statement, YouTube said: "In December 2019, we updated our harassment policy to further protect the YouTube community. Our policies prohibit content that leads to repeated patterns of harassment on- and off-platform. Following a review, we’ve removed the video in question for violating those policies because they had the effect of encouraging abusive fan behaviour."
