    Something weird happened with YouTube's biggest star this week. PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, had his Twitter account suspended earlier today for reasons that aren't immediately clear--and that's not all.

    His account has since been reinstated, but without its previously verified status. He's also updated his bio to say, "On a self hate mission to cleanse youtube for my sins." Not only that, but his banner image is of a hat-wearing pug, while his profile image is another dog who is showing his chompers.

    In a tweet yesterday, he said, "Me and @Jack_Septic_Eye have joined isis. Which is why we both got unverified." Jack_Septic_Eye, who is also a video game YouTuber, has a verified Twitter account today.

    In a new video uploaded today (below), PewDiePie said there is no conspiracy about him losing his verified status. In fact, he explains that he chose to unverify himself to avoid some of what he described as headaches that come along with having verified status.

    Adding to the weirdness of this, a fake news story made rounds recently about PewDiePie joining ISIS. Some people thought this was a real story and...you can imagine where it went from there.

    "I'm fairly certain social media is making us all retarded," he said. "Yesterday, Twitter went full retard."

    In the wake of all of this, PewDiePie wrote today that he is "TOTALLY fine guys."

    "I am feeling very good today and its actually so heartwarming to see so many people care about me," he said. The tweet contained the hashtag #savemarinajoyce, referencing another YouTuber who was the focus of a bizarre video that PewDiePie uploaded earlier this week.

    Instead of a blue checkmark, PewDiePie now has an image of a globe next to his name and all his tweets. In his newest video, he called on his followers to do the same.


    A spokesperson for Twitter told TheNextWeb that the social networking site does not comment on individual accounts "for privacy and security reasons."

    PewDiePie has more than 47.6 million YouTube subscribers, making him the most-subscribed person on YouTube by a major margin.
