The Australian terrorist, who successfully fired at a mosque in New Zealand, told his audience that he “Subscribe to PewDiePie” before launching his attack by Brenton Tarant.
A video of the gunman known as Brenton Tarant of Grafton, New South Wales, Australia, shows the Swedish star on YouTube just moments before the carnage at the Al-Nour Mosque in Christchurch.
The 28-year-old gunman killed 41 people inside the mosque during Friday prayers. 49 people were killed during the terrorist attack, and 48 others were injured.
PewDiePie whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, quickly wrote in Twitter: “I just heard reports of the devastating reports from New Zealand Christchurch.” I feel very sick because of this person as Brenton Tarrant.
The Sweden, who currently lives in England, has more than 89 million YouTube subscribers, thanks in part to the “PewDiePie” viral subscription.
