Focusing on the wrong things.
I can't help feeling there's a pattern to what you're pointedly apathetic to.

Does the default gender for characters with multiple gender options matter to you?
What a thing to worry about.

Damn. Even chibi is bad. What a world we live in.
LGBT Representation in Gaming - should it be proportional or equal?
Whatever. Plot comes first.
Have recent events affected your decision to buy future Atlus titles?

I hope that there's still a shred of decency in Felix, and that his name being mentioned before the white nationalistic murder of 49 men, women and children, gives him some much needed perspective on the path he's chosen to take in appealing to alt-righters and signal boosting hateful scumbags.
He's not to blame for the horror in New Zealand, but he absolutely IS a factor in it, and that alone should be enough to have anyone with any decency left in them evaluate the shit they've associated with and make a change.
If he moves forward from this and still pulls the same old tricks then there can be no question that he's a willing supporter of this kind of hateful trash. This is his last chance to do the right thing and disavow all his previous actions, remove all his posts in support of white nationalist and alt-right channels, and just stick to being a dude who yells at shitty games for the amusement of 10 year olds.

I love how alt-right losers both simultaneously think that this place is a cesspool of SJWs yet also have like a hundred different accounts on here. Like they think their owning us by making a bunch of troll accounts and posting obvious troll post that no one falls for.
There are a concerning amount of groups who, both as hobby and profession, try to flood online discussions with their views to try and change the discourse of a site. Even the stuff you call obviously troll-y is supposed to get users with certain views thinking the troll's ideas are reasonable or even correct.

Resetera gets shielded from this quite well do to effective moderation curating what's acceptable in the community and setting the baseline of standards for poster interactions; but you can look at how places like 4chan and reddit shift their ideals over time as a response to the internal culture war the users are involved with, which is again being manipulated in some ways by these groups of trolls. With a less restricted posting culture the troll's ideas are allowed to exist and can start to be normalized, shifting the site's culture towards whatever stupid ideal the trolls are hoping for.

So the shitposting is less a moron screaming to the void and more a loser jackass getting off on the idea they're fighting the "SJW Culture"; which is clearly ruining the internet via, you know, base level critical thinking.

But remember everyone it's just memes!!! PDP was just having fun with memes!!!
Hey I think you should seriously delete this picture. It looks like he’s trying to play the circle game in that shot. You know. Because that’s apparently funny. Even with his face blurred I think you shouldn’t give him the pleasure of having that picture shared. Just my two cents.

The Cult of Pewdiepie one social media makes me feel physically ill. So many people so devoted to a fucking YouTuber that they're unable to process any sort of criticism.

PewDiePie has been pandering to facists for years, he is not a fucking victim in all this.

Anyone have any articles or whatever going into the history of the circle gesture becoming an alt-right thing? My friend group still do that as a joke in group photos without realising those connotations.

What a shitty insincere apology.

what the world needs right now is a campaign against PDP’s advertisers. YouTube won’t do anything about him until advertisers start complaining about having their brands associated with his videos. Social media campaigns against advertisers has worked with Fox News. You’d think the same thing would work here.

I'm in Cleveland sadly our news here is running a story about the attack being a follower of Pewdiepie,
Not sure if that should be a sad thing or not. PDP needs to take responsibility for the actions he allow to happen and promote under his name. If people start associating PDP with this then he will have to actually face the facts that the people surrounding him are shit. So either he will double down and die out, or actually reform himself. Either way it would be a win, but only if he is forced to take accountability.

I don't particularly like Pewdiepie, or understand his humour. But blaming him here is akin to how people have blamed violent video games, movies and music for other shootings over the years. I think we can all agree that Grand Theft Auto, Heath Ledgers Joker and Marilyn Manson weren't to blame for the tragedies that were attached to their names. You might not agree with the things that he does, but in this instance there's no one to blame but the psychopath that carried out this horrendous crime.

Nah dude has cultivated a cult following of alt-right and White Supremacy and doesn't disavow it. Trump was just as culpable when that shooter shot up the synagogue based on Trump's Soros is sending illegals after you fear rhetoric. Pewdiepie could tell these fuckers to fuck off, but instead, he invites him on the show tweets to them and follows them on twitter.

He lets this shit fester as a leader or millions of fans. Many whom are children who grow up to be like my nephew whom is now a 15 year old alt-righter that hates feminism and immigrants.

Nevermind pewdiepie's racist "slip ups". He knows what he is doing, he knows who his fans are, he just doesn't care.

Im not entirely familiar with PDP, but why so much the hate towards the tweet?

Let's keep this simple. Whether or not PDP pulled a trigger is not what's being discussed. This is not about making PDP pay for a killing that someone else did. PDP is one part of a sweeping problem of people making "jokes" at the expense of disenfranchised people, rubbing elbows with alt-right thought leaders and staunchly doubling down when confronted with the fact that they feed into the culture of bigotry that spreads and produces violent offenders just like this:

No matter how much he or you or any of his fans like to think, by using his platform to trade in the culture of white supremacy, he feeds into the galvanization of bigots, violent and non violent. And before anyone says it: It's not just about PDP. PDP is being talked about because he started off his glide toward the alt-right with stunts like the "Death to all Jews" bullshit and we can't act like that shit is separate from a person who went on to try their hand at genocide who had PDP's name on their lips. We could and do have multiple topics just like this in regards to Trump, Candice Owens, Tucker Carlson, Ben Shapiro, Milo Y, Alex Jones and so on and their contributions to the very same culture of hatred and genocidal violence and we should. This particular topic is about PDP though.

I feel so distubed so many people are supporting him in this case, markiplier included. I think he should at least be held accountable for what he had done

Stefan Molyneux, the man who thinks Frozen is propagating radical feminist talking points, and thinks that the genocide against the Native Americans was just made up.
But PDP definitely is not rightwing, guys. He's completely innocent.
This is maybe neither her nor there, but I once heard someone who researches national security stuff for a living (to put it vaguely) say in 2015 or so they believed ISIS' western recruitment strategy was modeled after an online cult Freedomain Radio that Molyneux ran before becoming an alt-right figure.

Also, this thread is terrifying in a way that I wasn't prepared for. YouTube needs to ban PDP, end of question. We need to deprogram these kids with ContraPoints or something.

it's already been discussed in the other thread, but this is alt-right signalling (the signal he's doing in the pic, to clarify)
Right, yes. I immediately thought of Pepe, but it's gone so much further than that.

Christ, even my dad knows the symbol. Some young dude at work told him about it. Shit is everywhere.

They don't even have to condemn pewdiepie. All they have to say is "let's as a community make it clear that we condemn white supremacy and don't want those people subscribing. Easy.

I'll wait for even one of these people to do it, that feel sooooo bad for pewdiepie right now.

If I see another Era post start with "I don't really like PewDiePie but/I'm not familiar with PewDiePie but/I'm not a fan of PewDiePie but" I think I'm going to scream. Always the same opening, always the "but", always the same epiphany of blithering dismissive ignorance that follows designed solely to antagonize or provoke a reaction.

Every single one of these people KNOW EXACTLY what they're doing. It's incorrigible.

Late stage memes

Seriously, talked to my friends about this stuff today and the majority of them in the chat group just kept defending PDP and how all the stuff about him in the past is just news media clickbaiting a popular Youtuber with made-up scandals for views/revenue. It's unbelievable.

They don't care about pewdiepie so much that they are going to jump into a 2000 post thread with warnings, staff posts, and a long list of bans, just to defend his honor knowing how it's going to end. If that's what they "do" for people they don't even care about, I'd almost be scared to know what they'd do for the people they DO actually care about.

Another one.

Should be a disclaimer to stop regurgitating this nonsense. No, this is nothing like attributing violent video games to shootings.
