He made videos of him playing horror games and screaming a lot.

Imagine having such a casual use of the word that it would slip out when your dayjob is livestreaming to the world.

There's too much smoke for him to not be an awful person fire at this point.

IIRC he was one of the first Let's Players and being there since the inception you gain a fanbase that doesn't go away even after better less assholish folks come along like Markiplier or the Super Best Friends

Pewdiepie is rich though, you can get away with anything horrible when you are rich.

Look at Hulk Hogan, he said it and got richer.

I bet YouTube won't ban him. You don't ban popular rich people.

That's a shitty argument you have there and you should feel bad.

It's not to justify PewDiePie's act there but this news seems like it can't hold much water for debate after the other shit he's manage to get out of.

There is an audience for everything. His audience is into his "edgy" personality, and find his random yelling to be funny.

I would give pewdiepie the benefit of the doubt if it was a Maximillian situation where its obvious he didnt mean to say it but that isnt the case.

Even still Max came here and posted apologizing for his mistake. Pewdiepie wont.

Well his videos are all fairly well edited, and a lot of people enjoy his type of humor i guess.

He has said it a thousand times. It's a regular part of his vocabulary. There was a #PewdiepieIsOverParty the last time he used the N Word, but everyone forgot about it pretty quickly.

Maybe the WSJ will hold him accountable. But that would just give h3h3 and Philip DeFranco an excuse to complain about MUH FREE SPEECH again.
