Some are calling it the biggest glitch in YouTube history. Major YouTube stars are losing as many as 100,000 subscribers in a matter of five minutes.
The person who found the glitch went from 29,000 subs to -1,500. (Yes, it’s actually gone into negative territory.)
The glitch is very simple and allows anyone to lower the subscriber count of any channel. When you unsubscribe from a channel it counts as -2 from the subscriber tally. So if you unsubscribe and resubscribe repeatedly, you can slowly bring down a YouTuber’s sub count. And now that many people know the glitch, trolls are quickly removing popular channels’ subscribers.
