Felix Kjellberg is the top YouTube personality has had enough.

The Washington Post is reporting that Felix Kjellberg, better known as his YouTube handle, PewDiePie, has decided to ban commenting on his videos indefinitely after coming to the conclusion that YouTube's comment system is flawed. Kjellberg believes the system needs to be rehauled so that spam doesn't take over a video's comment section.

YouTubers like PewDiePie often read their fans comments and try to respond to them.

However, the spam comments that often engross their videos and cause a chaotic scene make it very difficult for them to do this.

Kjellberg tweeted a few separate messages explaining the situation to his fans, and some of them can be seen below.


Aside from the tweets, PewDiePie also put up a new YouTube video for his 30 millions subscribers, which explains in depth his problem with commenting.

He started his video with thanking his fans for helping him reach 30 Million and then quickly moved to the topic of his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Lastly, he touched on the topic at hand.
