Holy shit. You liar. You dishonest fucking liar. Do you really not feel any shame?

It’s one thing to say that PewDiePie’s joke was antisemitic. I think it’s a little more complicated than that because the antisemitism wasn’t the punchline, the punchline was fiverr’s ridiculous nature, so it was more of a fiverr joke that CONTAINED antisemitism instead of a joke that aims for antisemitism directly… but that’s pedantic nuances that probably don’t matter to most people. Saying that his joke was antisemitic is pretty much true.

It’s one thing to believe that his joke is inherently harmful and damaging to Jews, regardless of whether or not he was actually serious, regardless of what he actually believes. I don’t think any normal person would take it seriously in the context of dumb shit like “send me a graph that looks like a dick” and “can we play roblox instead”, but still, this is an opinion that can exist and can be expressed fairly. If you think his joke is harmful, you can say that.

It’s another thing entirely, though, to fabricate his actual beliefs and smear him with them. Just because someone has made a bunch of off-color jokes doesn’t necessarily mean they actually believe that shit. Do you have any evidence that this joke reflects PewDiePie’s real, sincere beliefs? I don’t think so.

Not only does your headline make him sound like a SERIOUS antisemite, but your article compares him to Mel Gibson, whose drunken rant WAS serious, even if drunken. The word “joke” only appears in the entire article once, too. You’ve tried to deemphasize that aspect as much as possible, didn’t you? The headline doesn’t mention it, either, and just refers to both as antisemites.

And the thing is, it didn’t have to be that way. You CAN write an article that condemns PewDiePie’s behavior without turning it into a fabricated smear about his belief system. Just look at this: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/02/16/pewdiepie-finally-responds-making-sense-media-nonsense/

There’s another, less fair article on the same website from a different writer, but this one is, so far, the only article I’ve seen that managed to say “PewDiePie, you dun goofed” without lying in the process.

I thought I’ve seen a huge share of dishonesty about PewDiePie already, but holy shit. This article is actually the worst I’ve seen, STARTING with a completely libelous headline and just spinning its yarn from there.

I don’t have that many sympathies towards PewDiePie, but I have even less sympathies towards blatant liars such as you.

Fuck right off and be ashamed of yourself.

Disrespectfully yours,
