It is impossible for someone to accidentally do this shit week after week. This is facts and people need to unwedge their heads from their asses instead of defending this dude time and time again.

As someone who doesn't sub to this guy or really look.

I thought his channel wasn't even gaming focused anymore? Just wonder if this is more off topic or not, I simply fail to see how this dude affects the hardcore gamer at this point rather than just being a fuckwad to everyone.

Baked Alaska is actually one of the more well known white supremacists. So, yeah.

Most popular YouTuber on the planet is an actual white supremacist, and actively plants the seeds into millions of other impressionable minds.

What a cool fucking time we live in. In when I say cool, I mean absolutely fucking horrible.

Fuck PewDiePie, and FUCK YouTube.

User Banned (1 week): dismissing concerns regarding hate speech
he's laughing at a 10 second clip of some shitty dude in an entire video of him reacting to other dumb tik toks. This is literally looking for anything to be outraged about.

He’s the largest YouTube channel on the planet. I’m not sure what you’re trying to say.

He has immense influence over millions of people. He has a very large army of fans. Gaming and non gaming.

With the guy's twitter handle plastered in the corner for everyone to go follow if they found it funny. Weird how PewDiePie could bother to do 5 seconds of reasearch before promoting a white supremacist.

Yeah, I'm just questioning if the "PewDiePie does racist things" topics should go into off topic since they're basically devoid of anything related to video games.

I honest to God thought this was just the old thread bumped up to the first page.

But nope, the stupid little Nazi lover did it again.

Don't forget that the Swedes failed to sides against the actual Nazis in world war II. And justified it with quintessential "both sides" hand waving.

Just like the americans were all happy to do the same untill they couldn't.

I see where you're coming from. I just know him from his gaming videos and constant racism "accidents". If he's not really a gaming youtuber anymore then mods should feel free to move this into ETC.

I don’t pay attention to him. I was willing to give him the benefit of a doubt the first time that it really was a moronic joke or thought experiment. The second time I’m not so willing to (after the first uproar if he really wasn’t condoning naziism he would have been a lot more careful). This has me convinced his first snafu was totally not a badly done joke/thought experiment. Which is horrible seeing as he was having people hold signs saying, “death to all jews”

Hmmmm.

Well, this so quick after the last incident... well, at worst he's promoting disgusting stuff and at best he's just really being incredibly irresponsible considering his videos are seen by millions upon millions of people. Dude really need a video checker for that kind of reach, that is if he's interested in acting like a responsible world famous YouTuber that he is---and of course, if he's really not interested in promoting such content himself....

So I believe the the rules for a white man accused of being a racist is that after 30 instances of racism we will be able to move on to the next stage in which we can suggest that perhaps he was maybe a tiny bit inappropriate.

Even if we choose to believe PDP isn't a white supremacist, including Baked Alaska in your video is careless. I would not want any bit of my channel associated with "Unite the Right" scumbags, but as previously demonstrated by PDP, he welcomes them.

Look out for PewDiePie’s new branded cereal: “Whoops! All nazies” and his hit single: “I just can’t stop promoting these Nazis”.

Get him off the fucking platform, YouTube

Wrong. We collectively clenched our fists behind closed doors. We also never held the door open for nazis and stood an additional 10m apart at the bus stops.

The fucked up part is that, somehow, If he acted the exact opposite and advocated for a lot of causes that it would fall on deaf ears for a good chunk of his audience, even the so called "impressionable" ones, yet the'll soak up hate like a sponge.
