I think you're right that he's not making a joke, but it's a dumb fucking thing to posit in the first place.
My understanding is that for "pi day," people were going around saying "subscribe to pewdiepie!"
Ban Pachter from this forum. What an insensitive prick. It's one thing to make sensationalist headlines about video games that are often wrong and get console Warriors in an uproar, it's another to be this insensitive to a mass shooting.
Can you explain why that would even be appropriate or important to post in response to a deadly terrorist attack?
That's what I think as well. The "not sure" makes me think hes just making another connection between PDP and the shooter.
This is kind of how I read it the first time but I'm not really sure. I'll wait for clarification.
I don't think it's a joke so much as an inane remark of a coincidence at the most supremely inappropriate time.
