Pewdiepie has been evicted from his Brighton office/recording studio for being too loud from a seemingly homophobic landlord who didn't like what he was up to.
Pewdiepie (real name, Felix Kjellberg) has confirmed on his YouTube channel that he has been evicted with a day's notice after he received his first noise complaint whilst making a video for the HTC Vive. he goes into quite some detail in the video stating that he has soundproofed his studio extensively so he can yell in the usual fashion we have all become accustomed to. However, from time to time more room is needed so they film in the living room of the ground floor flat.
Pewds talks to camera and says that they had just finished filming when they got a knock at the door
"...we just thought it was some crazy guy who's just p*ssed off, maybe like a neighbour or something like that. He slammed the door in Michael's face, I think he called you (Michael) a faggot. It's the landlord, because then we get a letter"
The letter states he has to move out due to the noise complaint and anti-social behaviour which for any normal person would create a major problem. Pewds goes on to say that for him, it's not a big deal, he can just get a new place with the money he earns but for anyone else, this could throw them out on the streets.
"Plus, if you're going to be a landlord in Brighton - the gay capital of the UK - maybe try not being a f*cking prejudice piece of sh*t"
The point about the landlord being homophobic is about the content being filmed at the time. Pewds was in a onesie of a nearly naked guy, being fairly suggestive about the controllers - you can see the video below:
Pewds is in no uncertain terms about the eviction:
He even continues with the fact that he got the eviction notice before the noise complaint which is not only messed up but is questionably not a legal move. However, as mentioned above Pewdiepie isn't that bothered about it. By the end of the video, he's already into his new place with his feet up. Check out the full video below.
Does the Landlord have a point? Or his he now doomed to have the YouTube fandom destroy his property empire?
