The internet, as we all know, can be a very funny place at times. I mean, seriously. Some people have so much time on their hands, that they end up filing a petition on Change.org for no good reason.
Someone filed a petition on Change.org asking Respawn Entertainment to ban the world's most popular YouTuber, Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg from Apex Legends.
In case you don't know what Apex Legends is, let me tell you that it's currently enjoying its space as one of the most popular battle royale title. Yes, the game reached 50 million players in a month, so clearly it's destroying all the competition.

Now coming back to the petition, the petition dubbed "Ban PewDiePie from Apex Legends," was filed with Change.org because he apparently ruins everything he touches. So some people thought he must be kept away from a great game like Apex Legends.
Anyway, we are happy to report that the petition has now been taken down from Change.org where it was originally being hosted. Why? Well, it was removed because there's no reason for such a strange petition in the first place. The petition didn't even manage to break 300 before it was taken down citing policy violation.
That being said, We are pretty positive that EA or Respawn Entertainment would never ban a prominent figure like PewDiePie from playing the game. It would be free publicity for them if someone like PewDiePie plays the game on his channel which currently has over 91 million subscribers. After all, we're talking about Respawn here who paid Ninja $1 million to play for a few hours on launch day.
