Expecting:YouTuber PewDiePie has announced he is expecting his first child with wife Marzia Kjellberg
Last yearPewDiePie was forced to apologise after he was slammed for uploading a video in which he appeared to mock a deaf woman using American Sign Language.
The video maker came under fire after posting his most recent YouTube video to his millions of subscribers.
But he has hit back by saying that he had 'no clue' the woman was deaf and was only making fun of her long nails, adding that it was an 'honest mistake'.
In the video, titled My Dog Cringes at TikToks, PewDiePie is seen playing various clips from the social media app which he then proceeds to make fun of.
One clip, which has now been removed from his video, shows deaf TikToker Scarlet May telling a story in American Sign Language.
After a couple of seconds PewDiePie stops the video and says: 'No, I'm not listening to this.'
He then makes fun of Ms. May's nails before comparing them to his dog's claws.
Ms May responded to his video saying it was 'very weird and very unnecessary'.

PewDiePie then picks up his dog, Maya, and begins to imitate Ms. May telling a story, using her paws to copy Ms. May's hand movements.
He was slammed by critics on YouTube and Twitter, who reuploaded the clip alongside comments such as: 'Not Pewdiepie making fun of a deaf woman???'
'So why is nobody talking about pewdiepie making fun of a deaf black woman?' one person said, sharing the video.
Another wrote: 'Pewdiepie mocking a deaf tiktok creator for signing in her videos simply because she has long nails…as if the dude couldn't be any worse.'
Beaming: The expectant parents appeared over joyed by the news but didn't say when the baby was due
'Honestly if you still like pewdiepie grow tf up. not only is he racist, he's now apparently mocking a deaf girl on tiktok who is using sign language,' a fourth added.
Ms May, who has 6.2million followers on TikTok, then uploaded a response video in which she says: 'He made a reaction video to my TikTok, making fun of my nails and making fun of my signs with his dog…
'So how do I feel? I feel like it was very weird and very unnecessary but at the same time I wasn't surprised, I'm used to it.'
She adds that one of the reasons she uploads videos to TikTok is to show that deaf people can have long nails while using sign language.

She said: 'But then a big creator comes on here and puts us a million steps back so It's very frustrating.'
However the TikToker then says: 'Maybe he didn't know I was doing sign language, maybe he just didn't like my long nails. That's okay, a lot of people don't like them…
'If that was the case he should have just been like ''Oh I do not like her nails'' and skipped the video.
'But instead he chose to stop the video and proceeds to mock me doing sign language which shows he knew I was doing sign.'
She adds: 'If you made a mistake, admit the mistake. You don't just get to mock deaf people who have already been struggling for years…

Replying to @anethepeach we all make mistakes hopefully he learns from this 😊🤟🏽 #fyp #foryou♬ original sound - Scarlet May 🦋
'I really tried to give him the benefit of the doubt like maybe he just doesn't know or is really unaware, even though it's 2022 and there's deaf people and sign language all over social media. But the mocking of the sign and the voice like… he definitely has to know.'
She finishes by saying 'we all live and learn' and added: 'If he did not know before, he definitely knows now!'
PewDiePie thenposted underneath the reuploaded video to explain the situation by saying: 'Hey, just to clear a few things up: I edited out the clip with the girl that has the long nails.
'Had no clue she was deaf, but kinda dumb of me to not realize. Still watching through the clip I only poked fun of her long nails.
'The voice I did for my dog is the same voice I've given her for years. (edit: ..and making my dog's paws move was poking at people always dancing or doing some move on tiktok, which is an ongoing theme in the whole video).
'Anyway honest mistake, my bad.'

PewDiePie is the alias of Swedish YouTube giantFelix Kjellberg.
The 30-year-old internet sensation is a controversial character who has the most subscribed to channel on the video watching site.
He has a staggering 102,000,000 subscribers on YouTube - that's more people than the UK has citizens.
Both of his parents, Johanna and Ulf Kjellberg, are successful Chief Executives of their respective companies in Sweden.
And having been schooled at Goteborgs Hogre Samskola, located in one of the city's most prosperous areas, he could have been destined for a corporate life too.
Fortunately for his millions of fans, Kjelberg's ambitions weren't in line with his classmates' at Chalmers.
PewDiePie, 30, has previously earned blacklash for including racist and antisemitic messages in his videos.
In July 2018, he posted an insensitive meme related to the 25-year-old Demi Lovato following her overdose and alleged heroin use.
The YouTuber, who is from Gothenburg, Sweden and resides in Brighton, shared a meme that originally shows a nondescript character asking their mother for money.
The character pretends the money will be used to buy a burger but then uses the money to purchase heroin 'like a boss'.
PewDiePie eventually deleted his tweet.
Back in February 2017, Disney cut ties with the YouTuber after he featured a man holding a 'Death to all Jews' sign in one of his videos.
'I'm sorry, I didn't think they would actually do it,' PewDiePie told his viewers in a clip. 'I feel partially responsible. It might just be my crude sense of humor, but I think there's something funny about that.'
Seven months later, in September 2017, Felix was caught shouting the N-word during a live stream of himself playing the multiplayer online shooting game Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.
2019 saw a resurgence in popularity for PewDiePie, despite losing his crown as the most subscribed channel to Bollywood sensation T-Series following six years at the top before reclaiming the top spot, and later losing it again.
But he still accumulated four billion views in 2019 as well as gaining22 million subscribers and making the second most-liked video on the site - his wedding video which totalled 4.7 million likes.
All this gave him the title ofthe most-watched and subscribed YouTuber of 2019, according to Youtube's Rewind.
