A downfall isn't happening, it's just he is not directly associated with Youtube and Disney anymore. He still has a ridiulously big channel that earns him millions a year. Just checked his last video, posted three hours ago and has 500k views

Yes, he can still monotize videos on Youtube. The anti-semitic ones have been removed by Youtube. I doubt that any well known company will make a contract with him after that incident.

I think I saw earlier he has a net worth of around $124m, so he will be alright I think.

Yep. It's annoying. Say what you will about PewDiePie, he is a comedian. You can't be offended by everything.

It's why many comedians refuse to do shows at Universities these days. They know they can't speak "FREELY" and thus refuse to do them.

Heck, Nick Canon just quit AGT because NBC was upset over things he said at his comedy show.

Yeah well you can't go to work at McDonalds (or anywhere) with 'Fuck You' tatooed on your forehead either. If you work for a family company like Disney you might want to steer clear of racist jokes (here's a pro-tip: your life is not going to end) that are recorded on camera. 

It depends on the format too, if you're doing a comedy show for adults and they know what they're getting beforehand, that's one thing, when you're associated with fucking DISNEY, yeah you might want to try using your brain once in a while when it comes to content. 

Anyways I'm not a 12 year old girl so I really couldn't give two farts about his Youtube channel.

Not the same thing at all. Youre not working at McDonalds to entertain people. Maybe Disney should take a look at peoples previous videos before they hire someone. Its just a big company shitting their pants over their own mistake and blaming someone else.

When you work at McDonalds, Disney, whatever corproation you represent that corporation. If they don't like what you are doing to represent their brand or don't want to associate what you are bringing to the table with their brand, they are well within their rights to tell you to take a hike. 

Pewdeepie is a nobody and no one will give a shit about this guy in 10 years anyway, Disney has broader issues to think about.

They are, but he didnt start out working with Disney and Im sure he wasnt the one asking Disney to collaborate. I think your hate for Pewdiepie takes the front seat here.

Nah, he just turns into muslim and everyone will want him to tell anti-semitic jokes. That's just how the world works.

It sucks that Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld don't want to go to college campuses anymore...
