Mel Gibson said it and the world still hasn't moved on.

Times change, eh?

Edit: Some posts here, holy hell. Honestly, I keep opinions about the word to myself, and I have no right to say why it should or shouldn't be used as it's not my word to own.

Have a good day, GAF.

That feigned surprise of his after saying it. Lol. He didn't even fucking hesitate when he said it, super clear it's something he uses as a negative term all the god damn.

I fucking hate sharing nationality with this fuck.

It did bother most of GAF. We also realize that video was private and should have been kept private. That Gawker was wrong doesn't mean Hulk Hogan isn't a racist. It just means Gawker was shitty journalism and Hogan is a racist POS who should not have had his privacy violated. This was PewDiePie using his public stream and saying the N word.

I think this may be good learning oppurtunity for you, but you will likely need to learn that lesson on your own time off of gaf. If you are actually curious and not being snarky do your own research. But i cant imagine you arent being snarky so buh bye

Can someone explain why this PewDiePie guy is popular in the first place? When first hearing of this dude I looked up some of his videos. What's the appeal? He's not funny or clever. His videos are just him talking. I don't get it.

I cringed in a way that I haven't since the Michael Richards meltdown. There wasn't even a hint of irony or the sense that he was using it to subversively illustrate a point. Just straight-up yelling it the way a racist kid on XBL would lol.

Yeah, this is a drive-by defense in context and no, it won't fly. This isn't someone sheltered with no idea. This is someone with global reach.

Doesn't matter if they already know it. It matters if kids think it's okay to say the word because Pewdie uses it casually.

I'm always curious about the crossover in alt-right ideas and youtubers. It's a chicken/egg situation. Are they always like this, and the truth just eventually comes out? Or do they get some fame and some money and decide that they are better than other people? Or maybe they're even glib enough to think that the alt-right are the best group to take money from by acting it up?

It's strange.
