PewDiePie Gets A Warning From Police For Buying 'Weapon' On Wish

Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg found himself in hot water with local police after he showed off a "forbidden" item that he recently bought from Wish. 

YouTubing superstar PewDiePie continues to dominate YouTube with his 111M subscribers and a mind-blowing 28 billion views on the platform. However, there have been worries that PewDiePie's long reign could soon be over due to heavy competition from fellow YouTuber Jimmy "MrBeast" Donaldson. Fans also became increasingly concerned for the 32-year-old following a series of breaks away from streaming. 

However, PewDiePie came back with a bang and has created a new series of content to keep his fans entertained. Unfortunately, after one particular stream, the Swedish YouTuber had a surprise visit from police for a very bizarre reason. 

What Did PewDiePie Buy From Wish? 

Back on February 4, PewDiePie uploaded a YouTube video in which he purchased a huge bundle of items from Wish. Unsurprisingly, he wasn't best pleased with the quality of the products once they arrived in the post. For example, he found that his "Dream" hoody was the wrong shade of green and his Friends t-shirt was too see-through. Although, he was particularly pleased with his colour-changing lightsabre.  

Although, there was one particular item which landed the YouTuber in trouble. During the video, PewDiePie showed off his Legend Of Zelda balisong. Once again, he was disappointed with its quality and was bit bummed that his other balisong didn't arrive. However, it wasn't long before the YouTuber had some bigger problems on his hands. 

Why Did PewDiePie Get In Trouble With Police? 

What PewDiePie didn't know about his Wish haul was that he had made an "illegal" purchase from buying his balisong. During his YouTube video which he uploaded on March 2, PewDiePie revealed: "I had the great idea of trying to buy a balisong. Because I like them. They're fun to play with. It's awesome. Well, don't do that. Do not buy a balisong."

He continued: "The cops came to my house and they told me I was bad and I shouldn't have done that." He also speculated that it could have been a culture clash as in Sweden balisong's are "a tool not a weapon." So, following the drama, he stated that in future he'll be making some more "stress-free" Wish purchases. 

This certainly isn't the first time that the cops have unexpectedly showed up to a content creator's home, sometimes even midstream. Just to be on the safe side, in future, PewDiePie will probably stick to buying lightsabres rather than balisongs.
