What Happened with Fred’s YouTube Subscribers?

Fred Figglehorn is the second most subscribed channel on YouTube. There seems to be a strange bug with his channel which currently says he has 246 subscribers.

Fred only has 246 subscribers?

The Top Subscribed Channels list still has the correct counts though.

Top Subscribed Users on YouTube. Notice Fred's count is correct here.

This isn’t the first time something weird happens on YouTube, so I’m sure this is just a temporary error and should be fixed shortly.

    Some guys found a way to remove subscribers, and they did that with Fred, Justin Bieber and Shane. Youtube reverted it though. Those guys also found way to add subscribers, so you might see some images of people having 99mill subscribers.

      You are an a fool, talking out of your ass. Go back to your middle school. He wasn’t hacked.
