GamingThread PewDiePie attempts to distance himself from Christchurch Mosque shooter who pledged support (READ THREADMARKS)
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Downplaying hate speech, Trolling, Disingenuous comparison
I'm not going to blame Pewdiepie for this heinous act for the same reason that I didn't blame Democracy Now or Bernie Sanders for the 2017 shooting at a congressional baseball team practice. Correlation doesn't equal causation. There are fucking awful, evil scumbags on this planet. I'm not defending Pewdiepie or his style of "humor." I don't like Pewdiepie or his despicable attempts at humor and find them to be offensive on a fundamental moral level but I'm also willing to wager he's far from the worst media these perpetrators interacted with. The eagerness of people to tie responsibility to him is foolish.
