Report: PewDiePie YouTube Series Cancelled Due to Anti-Semitic Posts [Updated]


The Escapist has the story.

Quote:
Disney has reportedly cancelled the second season of PewDiePie's YouTube reality show: Scare PewDiePie, over some anti-Semitic posts.

Popular YouTube personality Felix "Pewdiepie" Kjellberg has just had the rug pulled from under him regarding his YouTube realtiy show: Scare PewDiePie. Both Disney and Google have announced that they are severing ties with the star, and although an official reason has not been given, the timing suggests it was due to some anti-semitic stunts that Kjellberg has been pulling.

"We've decided to cancel the release of Scare PewDiePie Season 2 and we're removing the PewDiePie channel from Google Preferred," a YouTube spokesperson said.

Nine of PewDiePie's videos are alleged to contain anti-Semitic imagery, including one recent video that featured the YouTube star commissioning two comedians to make a "Death to all Jews" banner, which you can see in the image above.
Update: PewDiePie Apologizes For Anti-Semitic Content, Accuses Media Of Attacking Him

His defense, which I believe, was it was a joke about antisemitism and someone being controversial and not a slur against Jews. All fine to do... unless you're employed by the House of Mouse. Then you can't play with fire. It's called "Selling out" for a reason.

I also find high irony that the first reply to this topic was from a dude called "Rommel".

Freedom of speech has nothing to do with working in a corporate environment. That freedom is traded the moment you accept that job offer....

He's free to make whatever videos he wants, just as others are free not to help him do so on their dime.

Potentially anti-Semitic YouTube millionaire gets his tail docked by billion dollar company that fires its American employees after forcing them to train their cheaper indentured servant foreign replacements. Gee, whom to root for?

Neither.

And his channel is not removed from YouTube, it is just not being promoted Google and Maker Studios (aka Disney) has severed their ties. But all of his videos are still available and he can continue to make whatever videos he wants, including monetizing them. So his freedom of speech has not been revoked.

I've read that he was trolling people in a satirical manner. Disney is free and maybe even wise to distance themselves from this but I don't think Pewdiepie is worried. He's made quite a lot of cash off of his channel so far and he'll likely continue to do so.

As Terran said. Greedy Jews vs. Millenial.

No one wins.

The Disney Look was originally written by Walt himself. It was designed to portray that "perfect america" look of the 50's.

I couldn't believe he aired that segment when it happens, but he's been saying that this year he's tired of making videos he thinks other people want and is just going to hang out the real Pewdiepie, what he finds funny, and not care about the consequences. And he said, he never thought they would actually make the video, it was supposed to be a joke. But they did.

Then Fiver banned them, then he got them unbanned, then he got banned, like a couple times from Fiver...

I am less disgusted by his antics than I am by his being popular, at all, to begin with. This piece of shit is exactly what happens when people stop reading books.

I used to wonder the same then I realized his audience is mostly young kids that laugh at a grown up acting just like them while streaming games.

9 videos. 9 where he makes anti semetic statements. That he hasn't already and apparently won't be banned from YouTube really speaks to the double standard of left leaning companies like Google. You can bet if it was 9 videos trashing the racists domestic terrorists, BLM. He'd been banned ages ago.
