Famed YouTuber PewDiePie announced he will not be making a $50,000 donation to the Anti-Defamation League after his proposal to do so sparked major backlash.

In a video Thursday, Felix Kjellberg said he probably should have gone with a charity he’d done research on rather than selecting one advised to him.

“When we were planning the collaboration we thought it would be nice to donate to a charity as a way to celebrate,” Kjellberg says. “I made the mistake of picking a charity I was advised, instead of picking a charity that I’m personally passionate about, which is 100% my fault.”

Pewds says viewers were keen to notice he didn’t seem too enthusiastic about his donation choice, which some labeled “blackmail” as the ADL has been one of the leading groups advocating for his censorship.
