GamingThread PewDiePie attempts to distance himself from Christchurch Mosque shooter who pledged support (READ THREADMARKS)
Reason User Banned (2 weeks): Rationalizing hate speech.
Oh, i completely agree on the fact that pewdiepie is toxic and caters to fascists. With an audience so big, it's impossible not to have those assholes around. The fact that his antics are mostly "for the lulz" (aka offensive shit a la 4chan) type of humor are vomit-inducing. And yes, i never once countered the fact that he needs to take a step back and reevaluate the shit he's doing. It's a larger social problem, though. Youtube's personality culture and the need for constant attention tends to generate extreme antics and responses. The fact that people make a living by doing stuff like this on youtube makes them cater to every fucking demographic possible for those views. The problem is that because you constantly see their face and all the interactivity associated with youtube / twitch / whatever streaming platform (comments / donations / fan requests etc.) makes a regular user feel a connection to them as opposed to a TV show. And they feel the need to please that audience for the money and attention. So, yeah, the world is fucked.
