For Legal Reasons, That's a Joke is a quote said by PewDiePie in his video "Congratulations," a music video in which he backhandedly congratulates T-Series in passing him in The Great Subscriber War. The line became used as a reaction image paired with captions describing a potentially offensive or illegal scenario.
On March 31st, 2019, PewDiePie released "Congratulations," a video in which he raps his backhanded congratulations to T-Series for passing him in subscribers to become the most subscribed-to account on YouTube, gaining over 26 million views. At one point, he insinuated that T-Series may have ties with the mafia, before saying "For legal reasons, that's a joke. For serious, Indian mafia, please don't kill me, that's a joke" (shown below)
