    As rich as he is he could really just make his own personal channel outside of YouTube.

    The fact it was found out in the first place makes them really crappy blackmailers. In the first place, I think groups lobbying for a certain group’s “rights” has more or less passed with the civil rights movement and the decades aftermath.
    They laid the groundwork but at this point it is up to society and people to go the rest of the way.
    In the first place what is “equal rights/treatment?” If you say equal in everything that is too vague and unrealistic to happen to humans anytime soon and debatable whether it is a “good” thing for us as a species.
    Sure you can list some basic things like being paid the same amount for the same amount of work, or being treated with basic human decency (like a person with your own rights; not talking about everyone being nice to anyone and everyone and it is your right to be an ass if you want or have a bad day). But do we really need entire organizations dedicated to such things these days? If so, have they actually achieved anything worthwhile to keep them around instead of giving the boot?

    In any case I rambled but it sucks

    First of all, Ai-chan couldn't care less. Second of all, what do you expect us to do about it other than continue to spread rumours that may or may not be true?

    Third, where is the evidence? I'm not a fan of Pewdiepie and I really thinks all his content are absolute crap. I also don't know who ADL is until I watched that video you link. But I'm still wondering, where is your evidence? Why are you sharing something without evidence? It's the same as Joe making a video about Jack pissing in his wife's mouth just because his wife said so. Where is the evidence?

    I googled it, as you suggested and there has been ZERO evidence. What I saw was just people saying, "Oh this happens, so ADL must be blackmailing PDP" or "My comments are being deleted, ADL must be censoring everyone talking about it!" or "This guy say the blackmailing is fake. Let's discredit him by highlighting his fetish." Where are the chat screenshots? Where are the email correspondence? Where are the recordings? Where are the defamation lawsuits? Where did PDP say he's paying to stop the blackmailing?

    I'm sure ADL is guilty of some crime and I'm sure ADL is a crook in some way or another and maybe it's true that ADL bullied pewdiepie until pewdiepie decided to just shut them up by paying up. But I am not angry at them, because they didn't waste my time. YOU wasted my time. If you want to spread awareness, spread awareness about something WITH EVIDENCE! Like global warming, nobody cares if you're spouting crap without evidence.

    And therefore, I'm reporting YOU for the crime of libel. Are you one of the 50 cent armies? Did you join 18 days ago just so that you can spread this rumour to this forum instead?

    Yes, I'm seriously angry now. Spread something that you have evidence of. Don't make me to spend the past half an hour looking for evidence that is nonexistent.

    This is stupid. Is say someone is being blackmailed a new trend. The petties of thing turn in to the most popular Conspiracies. ADL literally is anti defamation and people are attacking it. SMH

    When you're in the public eye, your words and actions are scrutinized. It's annoying to make sure that you don't follow people with ugly pasts, but that is just part of the cost of fame. That said, if you like the content of racists, and have a history of making racist jokes (in in addition to the "death to jews" "joke" he has a few other anti- semitic bits in his videos), then it's reasonable to assume you are a little too comfortable with racist opinions.

    This is not just for Pew fans. It’s for YouTube fans in general. We can not stand for this tyranny!

    I did not join to spread the rumor on the forum because it happen today. I'm sorry I wasted your time. Personally I like his content and his past month of minsecraft made me really happy. I know I don't have good evidence, but I do know something fishy is happening

    I think you're right about it was my fault of posting this thread with no definite evidence and so quickly after the whole incident, and was too quick to judge without any official statements. And for that I'm truly I'm sorry. I just was really heated about this and wanted others to know it was happening

    I think we can all agree that this is a much more important cause than whatever pewdiepie is up to. We're definitely gonna need that link. For... research... yeah. Research.

    I apologize for accusing you of being a 50 cent army. But in my defense, your first topic is too suspicious. I am simply someone who look for evidence before sharing a rumour and it really rattles me when someone shares something without evidence to initiate a circlejerk. I was a victim of one such circlejerk before when I put a single comment about Venus Angelic and was attacked by her fanatic supporters everywhere.

    Sorry, Ai-chan can't post that video as it will be a lewd violation and molestation of forum rules. Unfortunately, the video of Jack pissing into Sherry's mouth is nonexistent, which is why Ai-chan said there was no evidence to Joe's allegations. You can go to pornhub and search for 'piss mouth' instead to visualize what had happened.

    Nah, it's fine. I've calmed down now. Frankly the reason I was angry was because you wasted my time searching for evidence to prove or disprove the allegation. And then finding out that the 'evidence' on the net was just people discrediting someone else and circlejerks.

    Seriously though, pewdiepie is just a guy who became a pioneer in a new form of media that is full of immaturity, in the creators and the fans, and lacks proper regulation. Part of the appeal of these new stars is the access that fans have to their personal thoughts and beliefs. That can lead to increased scrutiny of those beliefs, and the scrutiny on pewdiepie has turned up some concerning stuff. It's unfortunate if he is being blackmailed, but I doubt that it's as simple as "ADL are jerks". If he paid them, it's probably because he's planning to launch some new project and wants to get out from under his old scandals. And ADL probably views him as a problematic individual, given his large viewer base and obvious lack of concern towards addressing anti-Semitism. The fact that tearing him down would be a big win for them just makes the confrontation that much more appealing for them.
