Disney cuts ties with the world's highest-paid Youtuber

It is reported Disney has cut ties with the world's highest-paid Youtuber, after he was accused of posting anti-Semitic videos.

Felix Kjellberg, who is known as PewDiePie, says his comments have been taken out of context - but he understands the jokes were "ultimately offensive".

The 27-year-old, who reportedly earns more than €11m a year, teamed up with Disney's Maker Studios in 2014.
