  • [muffled audio] Good Evening, I am Poppy Pewdiepoop and you are watching Pew News,

  • the most respected news source, Back at it again with amazing quality.

  • Feels good to be back man

  • PEW NEWS INTRO \ (^_^) /

  • Now lets just jump into it. Pewdiepie did an oopsie.

  • Can you believe this? Pewdiepie did an OOPSIE? WHAT?!

  • There's definitely not been any shortage of calling PewDiePie a racist over these past couple weeks.

  • There's now a petition calling for his removal from Youtube due to 'white supremacist platform'

  • Oh, frick! Not a petition

  • I might as well delete my channel right here and right now

  • I might as well start finding a new job because

  • Petitions are the most effective way to make a change in the whole world

  • I mean it's not like Article got 5 Million signatures to stop

  • And it did nothing! [Laughs]

  • Okay, So let's check out this petition.

  • Remove white supremacist content from YouTube

  • Yeah! I agree

  • I think that's good. I think it looks bad on everyone

  • If there is white supremacist content on the platform

  • And it could possibly just lead to another Adpocalypse

  • So, I will actually have to sign this petition, and... Oh!

  • It's literally just calling to ban me from... the website, and nothing else

  • Oh! Okay, that will stop it [Sarcastic]

  • We need to ban PewDiePie from YouTube!

  • That will stop all the bad things

  • It's literally just calling them to ban me, and nothing else

  • I'm sure a lot of people just read these headlines:

  • Stop normalising or stop...

  • Or remove white supremacy and be like

  • Eh, I'll sign that. Sure... Sure, I'll sign that

  • Just by glancing over the points that they made against me

  • It's so blatantly misrepresenting and misinforming people

  • A lot of these points are just flat-out lies as well

  • context who needs that? Unimportant. I don't care!

  • why would I need to link sources to any of the claims that defames a person, no!

  • I mean honestly like it's surprising how changed our org is even letting this

  • up cuz there's no nothing to back up any of the claims but let's just go through it

  • PewDiePie in the past used the N-Slur twice in two separate videos and

  • has hired people to say the n-word

  • What! When have I hired people?

  • That implies that I've hired multiple people to say the what are you talking about I can't even

  • defend myself I don't know what they are talking about

  • why would I do that I used the n-word twice I did it in the live stream okay

  • it slipped up it was incredibly irresponsible foolish and stupid of me

  • to do that and people know about this I've acknowledged this wrongdoing and I

  • moved away from it I think it's been almost two years now but apparently I've

  • done it in two separate videos and hired people that's what I did remember that

  • remember next point he has promoted videos that contain Adolf Hitler

  • speeches and anti-semitic cartoons The Wall Street Journal article about me had

  • a Hitler speech in it is that what their reference is that what the referencing

  • Disney has a famous anti-semitic cartoon or at least that contains Adolf Hitler

  • type of propaganda is that what they're referencing Wall Street Journal and Disney?

  • Does context matter. Uh.. clearly it doesn't. He paid Indian men at the website, Fiverr to

  • hold up signs to say death to all Jews did you know about this has anyone heard

  • about this did he know PewDiePie did this has anyone ever told you this has

  • every single media news media article in the past three years that mentions my

  • name not mentioned this enough already I don't think so

  • another thing that is never mentioned is that I also wrote to subscribe to

  • keemstar as well it was so obviously me trying to come up with the most horrific

  • sentence I could think of like the worst thing I could get to pay people to do on

  • this website this Fiverr because people were literally doing anything and it was

  • proving a point of that and I was shocked by the results as well it wasn't

  • like yeah awesome we did it it was shocking and I thought just that

  • in itself was interesting but clearly I stepped too far

  • I've definitely paid the consequences and I've learned from that mistake but I

  • guess we're just gonna keep hearing it for the past 60 years he

  • form the Nazi Heil in one of his videos where show it please show it cuz I don't

  • think I've done it I've hold up my arm as a way to prove a point that people

  • wanted me to be a Nazi so badly but they'll use anything against me and you

  • just proven that point yourself thank you very much

  • it's such a broken record at this point I'll hearing all these points like yeah

  • we've heard that a million times he used images of famous african-americans

  • Neil deGrasse Tyson, Barack Obama captioned with the wrong names oh my god how could

  • he do this confirmed white supremacist everyone we do this with everyone

  • white or black no one cares it's just so stupid what does it mean it means nothing

  • he made a clip of a man dressed as Jesus

  • holding a sign stating Hitler did absolutely nothing wrong I did not do

  • this this is a false information that has just been constantly told by people

  • and no one checks up on it I never paid him to hold up that sign that was

  • someone else there's no source I can't even like dispute it but I remember that

  • showing up a few days later and I'm like I didn't do that look this is what I

  • told him hi this juices I want to say subscribe to my favorite channel on

  • YouTube jacksepticeye - I love jacksepticeye - that's what I told him

  • to write this is just false I never did this he makes rape jokes

  • he makes rape jokes yes six years ago you're implying that I do it now and the

  • joke was that this monster was gonna rape me in this horror game like yeah

  • extremely childish stupid humor I don't do that now like why bring it up I said

  • it's a constant thing on my channel in his face swapping video he repeatedly

  • uses an image actress less of a Leslie Jones to represent Harambee there were a

  • gorilla killed in the Cincinnati Zoo last year it seems like they're more

  • sympathetic about the gorillas than Leslie Jones

  • the famous wobbling video was an AI that face what different things the AI did

  • this I had no control in it next time next time I'll be sure to control the AI

  • I'll do my best I'll do my very best the thing is like as laughable as these

  • points are a lot of people are obviously taking it seriously it's accumulated

  • 76,000 signatures and if you don't know anything about me and you don't know

  • anything to challenge these then obviously it paints a really bad

  • picture of me that just isn't true or at least accurate or anywhere near accurate

  • I would even argue then further on in the comments they even admit themselves

  • saying like even if PewDiePie cleared up his act, his comment sections are still a

  • cesspool of white supremacist activities and commentaries that's a pretty bold

  • statement I really enjoy this part because it's like you've argued this

  • point that I'm a white supremacist that need to be stopped or at least a

  • normalization of it that's the argument here but all the sudden it's like oh

  • well even if the comments section that's right the comment section is the problem

  • the comment section on my channel the cesspool I mean I agree that it's a

  • cesspool but not of white supremacist commentary let's just look at my comment

  • section let's just check out it's a cesspool of not - commentary let's just

  • look at it okay I mean this could be Nazi stuff I don't know there's a bunch

  • of Russian comments - series more like teary rash haha

  • that's good send them to the range I think beautifier wants to live it there

  • like if you have a problem with my comment section by all means feel free

  • to come feel free to criticise my comment section but don't use the

  • listing of all these things as some sort of shield for your point don't attack me

  • with all these inflammatory claims within lives with no context - then just

  • go well the comments section is bad it's so weak it's so measly it's so tiring

  • this someone pointed out that this petition is so inaccurate that they even

  • used - they even used to list a satirical article about me as as a claim

  • that I was a white supremacist saying that I dressed up in an entire Klansmen

  • robe while streaming so they actually believe this Jesus Christ there's a

  • satirical website that did this they wrote PewDiePie accidentally puts on an

  • entire KKK uniform in the middle of a game stream hey listen it was an epic

  • gaming moment, I could not help myself it happens to the best of us this is

  • clearly just a Photoshop and a joke it's a satirical website but they list it as

  • it as an actual claim that I'm normalizing white supremacist like Jesus

  • Christ it is laughable but also it's like people do believe it so it's kind

  • of sad at the same time next news that's right everybody there's

  • no shortage of PewDiePie is a racism this week

  • Wil Wheaton attack speed by calling him a racist piece of a shit

  • Wil Wheaton, for those who don't know is a child actress he was a Star Trek in some other movies

  • and then he sort of became popular for being a nerd doing board games and all

  • that kind of stuff and then he sort of dabble into this really strange politics

  • I don't really know what's up with Wil Wheaton but apparently he posted this on

  • Facebook saying hi Facebook on one hand I'm heartened to discover that you know

  • similar so little about me your algorithms seem to think that I want to

  • follow a racist piece of shit bigot on the other hand f you for coming for

  • recommending and providing a platform for this racist piece bitch bigot

  • Facebook provides a platform for a racist piece of shit I'm not even on facebook

  • you dumb schmuck this is a this is a fan-made group ah well we didn't want to

  • whack my fan group Oh so anyone who wants to or feels a need

  • to defend this guy's words in action as just being jokes please ask one of your

  • non-white friends if they think it's funny when someone uses racist language

  • of racist tropes I bet you well I have more non-white friends than you okay but

  • I thought I was a racist bigot now you're saying that they're jokes and

  • making it about how people feel about jokes if you want to criticise me feel

  • free to do that again or anything that I've done but this is such a straw man

  • argument saying ask a non-white what they feel about its videos if it's just

  • a joke there's in place that all my content is just filled with racial jokes and

  • slurs it's like no obviously not that's not the case maybe you could add

  • a compilation of all the edgy racist jokes that I've done and to prove some

  • sort of point like oh look yeah well he might be not be a giant racist but he's

  • sure made a lot of jokes like yeah I have what five thousand videos I don't

  • even know how many videos I have I'm pretty sure you can make it you can

  • prove any point what you can prove whatever point in the world just by

  • going through this library you can make me look whatever way then there were

  • just a few people defending me in the comments saying like

  • [The] Dude has donated more to...

  • saying like maybe looking to the guy a bit more

  • pretty reasonably claimed dude has donated more to even just India this

  • year then maybe you have your whole life never mind record-breaking charities

  • Despite the fact that he makes crazy amount less than billionaires and then

  • Will Wheaton hits up with that you know who else donates crazy amount of money

  • to people who need it people who aren't racist, so you do Will, is that what

  • you're saying or are you a racist now I never list the the charity work

  • we've done in this channel because I think it's very self loving itself

  • gratifying and but now that I'm being so frequently accused of being white

  • nationalist and racist into constantly having this list of the bad things that

  • it's been a paired about me in the media constantly reinforced I feel like I

  • should at least bring up that if I was a racist then why

  • and even then even if my channel was racist or my comments were racist or my

  • audience was racist then why would we raise $600,000 to build wells in Africa

  • we raised three hundred forty two thousand toward saving the children

  • which helps children all across the world we raised 1.3 million for the

  • charity read which fights against AIDS stoping aids all across the world

  • I think we raise even more I don't know exact amount because we also did the

  • Apple red campaign as well through to birch simulator which I know was a

  • pretty significant amount of money and also two hundred what was a two hundred

  • fifty thousand towards helping kids in India I get a better education know

  • doing charity work does not resolve your shortcomings or wrongdoings

  • that's not what anyone is saying people are just pointing out how constantly

  • having all these negative fittings listed without acknowledging any of the

  • positive is gonna paint a bad picture of anyone and if just for the sake of just

  • being ridiculously clear at least in my opinion

  • Fuck anyone who's racist and fuck anyone who's white nationalist that's not what I'm about

  • and that's not what this channel has ever been about it's so crazy to me how

  • it's even still a topic of discussion do people really need an enemy that bad

  • that they need to force it upon me it's like they wanted me to be an enemy so

  • badly to just bruised their own morale moral virtue oh well this successful guy

  • on YouTube well he's actually just a racist it's like people can't handle the

  • fact that I'm successful that's kind of a strong argument but still it it

  • feels like it it feels like a very spiteful reaction to what I do in this

  • channel it's almost getting to the conspiracy level at this point where

  • like he played a video game with a guy that had like a mocking avatar so he

  • must be a Nazi oh well he gave a shout out to this one channel that had Nazi

  • imagery in it out of 30 channels so he must be a Nazi or at least he was

  • secretly be a Nazi that's right secret Nazi everyone

  • finally I just wanted to finish up with I I read this comment on a Verge article

  • article a friend of mine sent it to me I know verge article comments big hikes

  • but I think it summarized things pretty well and why some people are so heated

  • about defending me I had not watched a single video until the verge began

  • publishing multiple articles about him I was initially under the impression I

  • thought this is interesting because this person is clearly not a fan of my videos

  • I was initially under the impression that his videos would turn out similar

  • to the horrific Alex Jones show however after watching a few videos I

  • found them to be less sensational than described in various articles it's

  • incredibly obvious to anyone with a brain that these interjections aren't

  • supporting racism and are instead of taking cracks at Vox media for labeling

  • him as a racist when I look back on the past evidence against him it honestly

  • said more about the poor journalism surrounding the situation

  • Than it did of his behaviour for example he recommended an anime reviewers

  • channel along with other channels because he liked one of their anime

  • reviews the channel happened to have bro white supremacy videos buried in his

  • history was that really a secret plan to subscribe kids to Nazi ideals obviously

  • not a lot of people do think that it seemed like an obvious and

  • understandable oversight no one with a life goes through every single video of

  • a channel before recommending it well people are saying well he should have

  • been more responsible but they always follow it up that's just a

  • counter-argument to their initial point well he's a Nazi well not really oh well

  • he should be more responsible that's not the argument you're making that was my

  • point the other accusation against him regarding Fiverr comes off as a big

  • mistake on his but I also understand why PewDiePie felt it

  • was a good way to highlight his point it's point being that people on Fiverr

  • will go to extreme lengths to provide a service even if it means acting
