    The ADL has massive power to decide who is and isn't a "hate symbol" giving "hate speech". When most people try to say that something is a "hate symbol", even CNN or Vice, they link to an article on the ADL website
    Youtube's T&C's state that any hate speech will be removed and offendes will receive disciplinary action.
    (The ADL is a 'trusted moderator' on YouTube and contributes quite a lot of the reports on "hate speech")

    What he did was definitely not good, but there's a difference between doing something anti-semetic and being anti-semetic. This is almost definitely just an overly edgy joke, and the chances of him actually having any prejudiced views towards Jewish people are very slim.

    There’s a difference between calling one person an idiot, and telling an entire race of people to die, especially with the historical connotations that people actually tried to do just that.
    But it could trigger some of his viewers to think it’s okay to be anti-Semitic.

    You know what I mean. It’s stupid to label someone something when you only had a narrow view of the situation.

    Felix is human, and he made mistake. He had already apologized and distanced himself away from nazi joke

    Exactly, and that's why I said it was a bad thing to do. I just think it's important to make distinctions between intentional harm and ignorance/ negligence.
    I don't know anything about that so I can't make much of an opinion, but if he really is falling down the rabbit hole of the alt-right I guess we can only hope he comes to his senses

    Edit: the only thing I can say is, how much weight are you attaching to a Youtube subscription/Twitter follow

    Still don’t understand why Pewdiepie will bother paying $50,000 to ADL 2yrs after the incident. Sure he can still be accountable for the “death to jews” thing but will YouTube really allow the first ever YouTuber to hit 100Mil Subscribers channel be deleted in a matters of days after hitting it? Even if he’s getting blackmailed, won’t be exposing ADL on the blackmailing be much more beneficial for him? Don’t know what he was expecting by publicly stating that he was “donating” to ADL despite knowing that everyone knows ADL got him off Disney.


    I probably should be doing my essays and projects instead of worrying about this. :blobwhistle:

    But I don't think he'll give an organization who tried to ruin him 50,000 thousand of dollars, he could of done it earlier but why now?

    "The easiest fanbase" you can aim your content at is not one you will be banned for pandering to.

    So who’s neo-nazi in that pic?

    Also, he shout-out to 20-ish channels and one of them is a nazi. He did not even know about it until the media pointed it out. He also deleted the nazi channel from the shout-out.
