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.

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

That's how it used to work. Comedians used to only make fun of themselves. Well the good ones still do.

Now you just see them "RIP" on others. Or mostly the white caucasian/christian crowd. Just turn on any late night talkshow, or SNL.

I can laugh at a joke about myself, but when someone is making a joke about me it's not so funny. Like take Obama's angry translator on SNL. The two comedians Key and Peele have no hatred for Obama, they probably even love him, thus their jokes were funny. Now take SNL and their "jokes" about Trump or other politicians. They are all done by people who vocally 'hate' the person they are making fun of. It is no longer a joke in that case. It is being spiteful and mean.

But as for your muslim and telling anti-sematic jokes. highly doubtful. Muslims seem to the be only religion/cultue in the world that can not be joked about for some reason. It clealy can't be because they are a minoritiy, cause there is like billions of them. I'm guessing it has to do with the fact that torrism wins. People are scared of making fun of them because they threaten to kill you.

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.

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

Can't tell if this is genuine or sarcastic as who gives a shit about Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld's stand up anymore.

People who likes funny comedians?



The 'anti-semitic' things he said were just jokes, and he made the fact that he was sarcastic as obvious as he possibly could.

I doubt my own existence.

Not so much on Jerry Seinfeld, though I do like Chris Rock's comedy. George Carlin, I like him more than the aformentioned two, though he's not around anymore.

However, the main point is how it sucks that comedians aren't willing to go to college campuses because of their hypersensitive PC environments.

Have you seen Rock's work lately?  2004 was a long time ago.  And Seinfeld is a bitter old man now.  Complaining can be funny if done well but his is just pathetic.

Havent seen much of Chris Rock lately, no. Hes no Dave Chappelle, but he can be pretty damn funny. I went to see Jerry Seinfeld about 5 years ago. Laughed my ass off.



Here is the video where this is all about:

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. 

Why do you hate the guy this much? Surely there are more worthy people than a guy who makes dumb YouTube videos.

Its about time Canon got fired from AGT a no talented bum like him shouldn't be the host of a show about talent in the first place.  Lets face it his only claim to fame is being Mr Mariah Carey.
