PewDiePie’s diss track which took aim at children’s channel Cocomelon, has been removed for violating YouTube’s ‘bullying and harassment’ policy, with the site saying the video ‘crossed the line’.

Cocomelon, which has 105 million subscribers, is known for its nursery rhyme content for children.

The YouTube star, who boasts a following of more than 109 million, doesn’t have any real beef with the kids’ channel, which is following hot on his heels at 105 subscribers, but jokingly mocked it in his highly-anticipated video, as well as unexpectedly taking aim at rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.

The video has now been removed from YouTube, with a notice reading: ‘This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s terms of service.’

When a fan questioned the site, the TeamYouTube account responded saying: ‘(1/2) Jumping in to clarify–this video was removed for violating two policies: 1) Child safety: images/themes for kids but containing inappropriate content 2) Harassment: by inciting harassment @ other creators, we allow criticism but this crossed the line. Details in image below.

‘(2/2) Also note: any reuploads of the original, including full length or partial reuploads, clips, etc will be removed too. Still images are ok. Also dropping the policy links below for reference.’

The YouTube star – real name Felix Kjellberg – hasn’t publicly responded to the track, simply titled Coco, being taken down.

In the video, Felix was seen singing to children in the style of a nursery rhyme, saying: ‘F**k your daddy, f**k your mummy too. F**k everything you love, most of all f**k you.’

At another point he raps: ‘Spartan s**t, yeet a baby off a cliff. If they make it out alive, I’ll be their Make A Wish.’

In between cussing out Cocomelon fans as ‘virgins’, the 31-year-old also turns his attention to Tekashi 6ix9ine, who has finished his prison sentence after pleading guilty to charges related to racketeering, firearm offenses and assault.

In the video, Felix – dressed like Mr Rogers – pointed to a chalk drawing of the rapper and sang: ‘Don’t be a f**king snitch. Don’t be like 69, that rainbow f**king b**ch. 

‘Rainbow b**ch, hair too bright. Don’t eat lead paint or your brain will end up like 6ix9ine.’

At the end of the song, Felix then says: ‘I’m just playing Coco, you know I love you. Not 6ix9ine though, ankle monitor-wearing c**t, I challenge you in a legal fight.’

6ix9ine isn’t the only star he targets under the guise of his Cocomelon beef. Felix raps: ‘I’ll spoil Harry Potter, wait JK already did’ – seemingly referencing author JK Rowling being accused of transphobia. 

It’s not the first diss track Felix has turned his hand to, previously taking aim at record label T-Series in his video B**ch Lasagna amid their subscriber battle and race to 100 million.

Metro.co.uk has contacted YouTube and reps for PewDiePie for comment.
