I disagree. About the 'just' part. He is also racist. And anti-Semitic. And sexist. And generally a hateful and terrible person.

"But I've never seen a friend hurl a racist slur at another player just because they were angry."

I know that it's popular these days, to comment on videogames without never having played them, ever, but if you've never heard someone use hateful language, then you have never played against my mom.

And that's a good thing, because she doesn't even need the scope, to get double bonus points for double XP.

Hey. I just had a crazy idea. There are about 5 million more important things going on in the world right now, so if this moron's comments bother you, how about stop watching. Turn off the youtube for a few minutes. Plant a tree of something.

I thought the irony was that the quoted was posting his thoughts, which would offend P.U. d'Pie and he could have planted a tree instead of offending P.U. (and Christians, with the blasphemy and everything.)

This is a strawman argument!

This is about bad behavior while playing video games.

No, it's bad behavior caused by someone watched a youtube video..  It's the same damn thing.  No one is being corrupted by watching this guys videos, just like no one was corrupted playing video games or listening to the rap music.

Nah, the racist was playing a game when he did the racist behavior.

He was not watching a video when he did his racist action, he was producing one.

I was going more for:

"Let's not support bigoted, stereotyping behavior that promotes a racist society."

PU became the asshole when he used that behavior, he doesn't want to be an asshole...don't act like an asshole.

I highly doubt a kid is gonna think "PU hahaha racist is so funny, let's all racist!"  They might laugh at the joke, which instills that support of bad behavior I was trying to point out.

Stereotyping is only funny because racism is so ingrained into folks, it's a shame really.  You shouldn't cut funny, but humans can't get a handle on colors.

Only thing I ever managed to do to an NES controller was pull out the plug for the wires that's inside the controller. Got a screwdriver, opened it up, plugged the wire back in, good as new. Those things were near indestructible.

Media absolutely influences people.  If it didn't, the advertising industry wouldn't exist, Fox News would be just another TV news source, and Trump wouldn't be President.  It's just that it doesn't influence people as much as the hand-wringers of 15-20 years ago wanted us to believe.  There's not a homicidal maniac lurking in all of us just waiting for just the right combination of lights and sounds in order to be unleashed.

But people do take cues on what is acceptable behavior from what they see others doing.  So, if people see someone who's made a fark ton of money and has millions of viewers spouting off racial slurs without consequence, that sends a very clear message that maybe saying that shiat just isn't so bad.  In this particular case however, the fact that people are freaking out and he is losing sponsors and revenue, is a good thing because it's sending a message that saying that shiat does have consequences and maybe it's not a smart thing to do.
