"I really hate my race-baiting and entry-level training for the alt-right has been broadcast widely and I might lose my money train."

Cool. Now if you're serious, knock it off with the racial slurs, edgy humor, and endorsements of white nationalists.

This situation is crap and while I don't like the guy I feel like if it wernt him it would have been another person that was blamed
If you read the manifesto the shooter clearly stares thst his intent was to create division in order to increase tensions and violence.
I hope the opposite happens of what he wanted and personally I think he should be hanged for the coward that he is.

Huh. Popular YouTube content creator who endorsed white nationalism, became a favorite of internet Nazi wannabes, and was mentioned by a mass shooter is SHOCKED his own behavior lumped him in bed with evil people.

It's almost like...hey, remember like around 2015 when I was assured by multiple FARKers that 8chan was just interested in ethics in video games and like "free speech" and all? That it wouldn't turn into a haven for pedophiles and nazis, and would never be involved in multiple mass murders and individual killings?

I wonder how much money Youtube makes off of this guy. He's been a known racist and antisemite for long enough now that any service that gives him a platform is complicit in anything that results from his bullshiat.

If you checked out sites like Stormfront and read their perspective on PewDiePie vs T-Series...it was a race war of an aryan swede vs filthy browns. He had to have known this. Where the hell did he think all his new subscribers were coming from(yes many were multiples)? THEY WERE COMING FROM NAZIS.

Just because he didn't do it himself doesn't mean he's not complicit.

This argument only works if the source wasn't directly contributing to the result - like blaming Helter Skelter for the Manson murders.

From what I understand via a friend that read through five pages of the manifesto before quitting, it was basically memes inter-spliced with hate speech, white survival/genocide, etc.

"Subscribe to PewDiePie" has been a notable meme here of late.

Pew - He shot up a place that has pews
Die - Many died
Pie - Happened on 3/14, or Pi Day

Study it out sheeple!

In all seriousness though, he's had to apologize multiple times for racist/homophobic slurs he's dropped while streaming. He's a symptom of the overall issue.

Big Deal, he made dumb@ss comments.

People are going to click his vids just to rage against him.

Clicks increase his viewership

Increased Viewership increases his revenue

Guy is already rich, r i c h, RICH for doing stupid crap online

End of the day he sits in his mansion counting his money laughing at the people who are nobodies in his life loosing their minds about the things he said knowing 90%+ are going to forget everything as soon as the next big media story comes out.

It's much less sickening then all of the horrific murders, but it's still pretty sickening to watch the cowardly enablers who give rise to these killers hide behind the "I'm just a free-speechy entertainment person" excuse when the killing starts. They refuse to open their eyes to their own participation in the community that breeds these people.

Some people are saying it's brcause PewDiePie has said some racist stuff before on his channel, but I think this has more to do with the recent "feud" with T-series.

For years now, PewDiePie has been the Youtube channel with the most subscribers, but a challenger has emerged in recent months. T-series is an Indian music label that specializes in Bollywood soundtracks and Indian pop music, and its subscriber count has exploded on Youtube recently, to the point where it has threatened to go past PDP's.

Naturally, a lot of people seem to be butthurt about this, decrying that a corporate entity is about to surpass a gaming channel...or something. I don't know why exactly people are pissed off, but I wouldn't be surprised if there's some soft racism mixed in there. So a lot of PewDiePie fans have been spamming the internet with pleas for people to subscribe to him, trying to keep him the top subscriber for a little longer. As far as I know, PDP himself doesn't care about this stupid "feud," but his fans certainly do.

He's an edgelord.  Casual racism, antisemitism, etc is part of his shtick.  But he says it's not "racist", it's just for laughs and you don't understand his humor.  His social circle also doesn't inspire much confidence as well, having people like former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro on his channel and such.

Basically, he's Fox News.  Not racist, just #1 with racists.

How many times does it need to be proven that giving everyone on the earth an internet connection and therefore the ability to broadcast every single one of their dumbass thoughts and ideas to everyone in the world does more harm than good before we either a) unplug the internet or b) require licensing exams to be passed in order to bloviate online

I'm not really sure I'd classify him as a simple popular edgelord.

He uses a lot of fash iconery and whistle words in his videos lately, and has been openly pandering to his white nationalist followers in recent months. It's made him popular with a group of people looking to be entertained while hiding their own beliefs behind pedantry and contradictory language.

I don't watch him either.

There's a movement on YouTube to keep PewDiePie as the number one channel.

As I understand it, there is a corporation vying to take over number one.

Many creators are asking their subscribers to subscribe to him so that a real person is number one.

That's all...

Most popular youtuber.  Might not seem like much, but this is where kids on up to people in their 20s consume tons of media.  It's why there was yet another scandal a few weeks ago about soft pedophilia on youtube as the videos otherwise appeared benign on the surface and would show up in kids feeds during benign searches

Damned if I know...but apparently he's a problem, or encourages problems...serious real-world problems.

Why anyone would take advice about who to kill from random anonymous folks on the internet is beyond me...
