PewDiePie and T-Series have been battling it out since October 2018 for the YouTube crown. PewDiePie who maintained his lead for five years was threatened with the increasingly fast subscriber growth of T-Series. What began as a fun campaign for PewDiePie to get subscribers turned out to instead boost T-Series' channel.

This online battle has also helped increase subscriber growth of both YouTube channels. T-Series and PewDiePie were hovering around 67 million subscribers. There were some ugly sides of this online battle as well leading to a court order for PewDiePie in India. Complaints against the Swedish YouTuber's diss videos led to the Delhi High Court blocking them in India.
