PewDiePie, well known for his YouTube Videos, recently apologized for his Anti-Semitic imagery, but while apologizing he points out that the media hasn’t really done him any justice since he was put in the lime-light.
PewDiePie, also known as Felix Kjellberg, posted a response after his recent “Death to all jews” joke, but aside from the post, Kjellberg spoke out against the media, saying that they only care about money, in a YouTube video.
Kjellberg touches on the fact that he donates millions of dollars to charity each year, but the media never covered his donations, only how much he earned in a year.
PewDiePie has over 53 million subscribers that have now witnessed this lash out toward media. Some comments on the “My Response” video are…
Kjellberg focuses on the New York Times as they played a hand in Disney severing ties with him over the suggestive, anti-semantic imagery.
He says that the New York Times did not report actual news, but instead personally attacked him.
Other YouTubers have made their own responses as this news story grew. CaseyNeistat uploaded a video, summing up the general story and giving his own opinion on the incident.
Neistat says, “For YouTubers, just like everyone else in the world, you can say whatever you want, but at times there will be consequences.”
This story’s release has shed light on YouTube, PewDiePie, the New York Times and Disney and has made viewers question the media and its intentions.
Youtube is still honoring freedom of speech and allowing PewDiePie to keep his YouTube channel, but the second season of “Scare PewDie” has been canceled.
