The criticism here isn't "He's putting PDP and JonTron high up on the list", that's obviously satire, the criticism is that he's taking their hateful rhetoric and passing it off as a harmless joke.

I ignored the thread but keep getting notifications when people reply to my stuff, is there a way to prevent that specifically for this thread?

yo let me break it down for those of you who don't get it

- he put really, really shitty people in the top tiers
- made a centrism joke about boogie by refusing to rank him
- put some good youtubers in the bottom tiers
- also put his friends in the bottom tiers, who in reality range from okay to also shitty, kind of invalidating the joke premise of the video with personal bias, rendering the joke somewhat confusing for anyone who doesn't share his exact views

It's not really a good dunkey video, but it's pretty obviously joke, and yes, the description is part of the joke too. If the existence of a Shadow Realm tier didn't give it away I don't what would.

Don't know how people could take this seriously anyway. He puts the Irate Gamer above the Angry Video Game Nerd. That should be a pretty obvious giveaway.

I don't think Dunkey is serious about anything in this video or most videos I've seen by him. That's pretty much his schtick.

Can someone tell me if reviewbrah/thereportoftheweek is in this.

Can’t watch. I’m on mobile with a bad connection until I get internet at the new place.

Not a great video from Dunkey. The point was a bit lost in the randomness of the placements and I'm not sure he was saying anything meaningful here. The worst part here is he failed to differentiate out the truly bad people/Youtubers from his friends like H3H3.

So many people here unable to pick up on anything beyond literal interpretations.

I'm going to be honest, this video completely cracked me up.

Like, he's obviously being 100% sarcastic and trolling. It's really dumb humor done really well. It's the classic setup of starting at a level where you're not sure if the person is being serious and getting progressively more and more bizarre and obvious, ending with him putting himself in the SSS tier.

The content in the video isn't his greatest, and I agree with some of the criticism about him joking about shitty people, but his comedic timing in this is top tier and jokes like the Shadow Realm or constantly moving idubbbz down are seriously funny.

Do people honestly think this is a serious video? Has you even watched it?

"Keemstar covers all the drama like when Logan Paul's dog toy got eaten by a coyote. Very important channel."
"Mega64. They're the Steven Spielberg of youtube. F-"
"H3H3. They're the ultimate power couple. Great styles. Really funny. Has great taste in food. F tier"
"AVGN. He laid the ground work for all gaming channels so we gotta pay respect....C tier"

Really? You're really taking this video seriously?

He gave the joke away in literally the first 30 seconds when he says "my man Leafy."

There's no setup at all, he just repeats the "good YouTuber is x/y/z tier" punchline for 3 minutes straight

Nah, I disagree. The concept stays the same, sure, but it definitely gets progressively weirder. Putting Mega 64 under Dairy Queen got a solid laugh.

Everything is wrapped in five layers of irony that it could be spun in any direction in defense of dunkey.

Its better to criticize people in debate or publicly rather than cede a platform to idiots that parrot alt-right memes. The attempts to trash on dunkey or Jon Tron over a dumb video shows a misunderstanding of the real problem.
....what? Jon "Genepool" Jafari got exposed in a literal debate.

How many layers of irony are you on my dude?

Shithead talks trash about other shitheads. Burn it all down. Also, what the fuck is wrong with you, OP? "Yeah, he's obviously racist, but I still really love him."

Jontron was on a debate with Destiny and said some really fucked shit, many youtubers including Dunkey didn't give a fuck their youtube friend was a piece of shit.

This video is a person in a clique slightly ribbing on other people in the same clique.

User Banned (1 Week): Downplaying Racist Rhetoric
Now I'm doubly confused, as it seems that your second statement contracts the first, not that I necessarily agree with it to begin with
First statement as in my earlier post? Yeah maybe. I think open critique and canceling are different things. I guess I am trying to say that JonTron and the rest of the problematic youtubers are mostly useful idiots not straight up racist and that discussion that stems from canceling anyone will in turn stifle actual discussion by ceding the platform (youtube.)

He got exposed for being an idiot. There is no way a moron like him can actually hold those views under scrutiny. I like that Destiny debate btw
So Jontron saying that well off blacks are more likely to commit crimes than white people is just a "stupid" viewpoint, not a racist one?

Exactly. This guy is trash.

Haha yeah ok.

Guess he didn't hold views when he spat out all that garbage on Twitter and constantly dropping the N word for laughs on YouTube videos.

It's both guy. He reads shit ass articles that agree with his shit takes that he's had since he was a kid I bet. Read up on implicit bias, Jon Tron is dripping in it and he happened to get recruited by morons that actually wants to make those believes a reality.

Why are you guys eating me I argue for the same things, I just think we look like tools getting caught up in what a dumb youtuber belives or not.
