But damn, what an idiot. After the last time things took a bad turn for him i figured he'd learn, but i guess not. I get that things slip out, but this shouldnt be a word thats so easy to just slip out.

Honestly, the wsj thing shook him and he's having trouble keeping his persona in. The cracks in his golden armor are starting to show and the shit inside is flowing out.

Guys like Pewdiepie don't have to "learn". He and a lot of his followers are mentally stunted 12 year old edgy trolls in the bodies of grown adults. They have no actual perception of the real world. That's speaking for a good chunk of these GamerGate/Alt-Right shitheads as a whole to be honest. Raised by the internet, never have had to answer to any consequences, in large part because of the relative anonymity of the internet and the insulation of the communities they subscribe to has protected them.

Eh, there's plenty of non-english native countries where the only times people hear the words is in music/movies/ other media. There are lots of people that don't think it's perjorative at all, as they never seen it used that way.
Not the case here, obviously: not only it was intentionally used as a insult, PewDiePie has no excuse whatsoever: he has interacted with English speaking communities for over a decade. He knows very well what the word means.

A person doesn't accidentally say the n word unless it's part of their vocabulary that they use often. It reveals a character trait and in pewdiepie's case strengths the objections people have towards him.

All this money and he can't take a class on humility and tact.

Eh, no I was literally thinking of people getting offended by dumb shit (which this situation is not) ....

Like someone got offended I ate meat in front of them.
It was pretty fucking dumb of me to do that considering the context of this thread.


Yes, I'm an idiot. No I don't say that word, and I'm not racist. Enough people know me on here to know that.

I don't know what other words I can say to make you folks understand what I was thinking when I posted the reply.

but he's straight up using it as an insult

there can be no doubt about his intent

But really, there shouldn't anything to stop YouTube from outright closing down his channel for good, on that note.

But this is beyond that; words like that shouldn't be in your god damn vocabulary. I wouldn't be able to live with myself having said that without seriously examining why I would ever say such a thing and then trying to better myself from the inside out.

I'll wager mr. Pewds hardly feels the same way.

Even if he apologizes and claims it was an accident, what's most unfortunate is that this word is in his vocabulary and is said on such a regular basis that it could "slip-out" or be accidentally said on stream, if he goes with that excuse.
