Johnny Somali Threatens Legal Action Against PewDiePie Over Japan Comments

Controversial streamer Johnny Somali is threatening to sue YouTube legend PewDiePie after the latter accused him and other influencers of “ruining” Japan.

In a May 2024 YouTube video, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg voiced his disapproval of content creators who visit Japan and engage in disruptive behavior, specifically targeting banned Kick streamer Johnny Somali.

Kjellberg, who moved to Japan with his wife Marzia in 2022, commented that the country has become “infested” with creators who go out of their way to be as “obnoxious as possible.”

Johnny Somali, infamous for his Kick streams where he harasses Japanese locals and blasts music in restaurants, was identified by PewDiePie as a “f**king idiot.” Kjellberg expressed satisfaction when Somali was fined and deported from the country.

However, Johnny Somali is not taking these remarks lightly and has called PewDiePie a hypocrite, referencing the Swedish YouTuber’s own past controversies.

He ain’t my OG, the new generation we run this sh*t now. Buddy needs to shut the f**k up and retire,” Somali shot back. “This hypocrite has no room to even discuss me, especially with misinformation and lies!

The banned Kick streamer shared a screenshot of a 2017 article highlighting PewDiePie’s controversy for using a racist slur on stream and making anti-Semitic jokes.

Somali also criticized PewDiePie’s vast following and resources, accusing him of wasting time by making a video about his behavior in Japan.

Very sad that PewDiePie has 111,000,000 subscribers. A significant percentage of the 8 billion human population of Earth, has access to unlimited funds, and his only content is reacting to and watching Johnny Somali,” he stated.

Additionally, Somali suggested he would be filing a lawsuit against Kjellberg for his comments in the video.

He called me a ‘terrorist,’ very interesting use of language that could be racially motivated. Definitely defamatory, and considered slander, and libel,” he asserted. “See you in court, Felix.”

Whether Somali actually plans to sue the popular YouTuber remains unclear, but legal disputes between creators are not uncommon. On the same day, Twitch streamer xQc announced he had served his ex, Adept, with three lawsuits after she leaked a phone call between them.
