And... that was everything? In what way is that anti-semitic? OK, the joke went probably a bit too far, yep. But in context, it seems like he tried make fun of that website sending them the most offensive thing he could think about. I wouldn't label him as an antisemtic because of a joke. That sounds like witch-hunting to me. Still, the guy has to be more careful about the jokes he posts. People might be sensitive about that, and I could understand it. It was just a mistake, nothing else.

That was literally everything. Not the best joke, but calling the guy anti-semitic is redicules. The Wall St. Journal did it for the clicks and to cause a shit storm. WSJ should be the ones under fire for falsifying this whole thing. I think once word spreads of what really happened people will get a grip. 

It wasn't even just the one request, he made like 15 dumb, silly requests involving profanity and dicks and almost everyone turned him down.
Kinda funny that the worst one got through ^^

Hey! Does anyone know how or... why, this guy became so popular?

Its a real question btw.

He can justify it anyway he wants, but when you make numerous anti-semitic "jokes" its not surprising that a parent company such as Disney will see you as too high of a risk to continue funding. Notice how other "edgy" comedians don’t have shows on Disney properties. Like i said before, he needs to know who his main audience is

It's not about Disney. It's about mainstream "news" media outlet twisting things.

In regards to my first sentence, prove to me how what I said were fairy tales. And I don't know enough about you to determine the second statement.

Every single thing you've brought up in this thread boils down to majority privilege, and even then its never a guaranteed "you're X, therefore Y". There is no conspiracy of an evil council (of whites...) oppressing people.

 

You uh.. you like Keemstar? Jontron and pewds are nazis, but you somehow like Killer "Alex is a fucking nigger" Keemstar?
Huh.

When did I say like I like Keemstar? A good channel that I like is called Shaun and Jen, where they debunk right-wing fabrications.

First time I watched a PewDiePie video - 53 Mio. subs is phenomenal... hysterical

Subscribe to Keemstar!

No thanks! But at least Keemstar's channel has a soo bad that it's good-type vibe, which I can't say for Pewdiepie.

Here. You didn't outright say you liked him, but it was pretty close. Maybe I made a mistake.

 

Why do you bring up "right-wing fabrications"? Sounds like you'd need some debunking of left-wing fabrications instead. I'm a leftleaning centrist btw.

Didn't you get the memo? If you don't agree, you're a right-wing neo-Nazi.

Nah, Kraut and Tea offers better arguments:

Or TL;DR

And before you resort to the ad hominem fallacy again, they're both left-leaning. Not only is your right-wing accusation a fallacy, but it's not even accurate.

Ah yes, TL;DR, the one who made false statements, and when called out for it merely said that the channel is meant for entertainment, so I guess that facts don't matter for him. And how are they in any way left-leaning?

The "no thanks" kind of indicates that I don't want to watch his videos.

Proof by Assertion fallacy. You really like to tell, but not show so this comment is nothing more than immature kneejerk dismissal.

Kraut doesn't like Trump nor does he supports the AfD. TL;DR has shown his politial compass results and he falls on the slight left, libertarian spectrum. Just because they don't agree with S&J's viewpoints doesn't make then right-wingers. They're defined by their opinions and positions, not by what you arbitrarily identify them as.

And this is nothing more than a baseless assumption that you can't prove. Are you going from an ad hoc phase to a Proof by Assertion phase...?
