PewDiePie,YouTube star made $8 million last year

PewDiePie, the most-subscribed YouTube creator with a dedicated audience of nearly 50 million peeps, had a pretty solid 2015. The wildly popular YouTube personality made just over $8 million last year, according to a report filed in Sweden and obtained by Variety. The best part? Dude also used his sustainable popularity to raise more than $1 million for various charities since becoming a household name
PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, stacked up an inarguably impressive $8.1 million in pretax profit against a total annual revenue of $8.6 million last year. To break that down for anyone who despises math with an unruly fury, that means PewDiePie (likely) made way more money last year than you or anyone you know.
