Surely you must mean

PewDiePie, the moneymakingest guy on YouTube.

Given that each "fix" is already capitalised, that's probably enough of an explanation.

    $\begingroup$ @Torben Also, I agree that adding an explanation is key. $\endgroup$ – risky mysteries Nov 21 '20 at 0:08

    $\begingroup$ For what it's worth, I think this should be the accepted answer. It was the first to explain each line, which is standard fare with these types of riddles (and maybe riddles in general). $\endgroup$ – oAlt Nov 29 '20 at 3:50

I think you are looking for:

Snapchat

My prefix is the sound of shots.

A sonic boom caused by a gunshot can produce a "snap" sound - Wikipedia.

My infix is when one gets shot

When someone gets shot, they often lose consciousness. So, you could say they "took a nap".

My suffix is a round thing

Well, that would be a hat.

My whole is a media king

Snapchat is a popular social media app/platform. (although I never used it myself)

    $\begingroup$ But then where does the rot13(p) come from? As is, you only give 7/8 letters of your suggested answer. $\endgroup$ – Lieutenant Zipp Nov 22 '20 at 23:45
  • $\begingroup$ @LieutenantZipp I think you're right. I'm not really familiar with the rules of affix riddles. I've seen similar puzzles before where the prefix, infix, and suffix overlap. So, I guess I was under the impression that they also don't have to cover all the letters. $\endgroup$ – 41686d6564 Nov 23 '20 at 3:52

    $\begingroup$ Hi, Snapchat is not a person, it is a social media app. The question is: Who is the king of social media, not What is the king of social media. $\endgroup$ – user71981 Nov 29 '20 at 8:41
