  • *Pewdiepie was always kinda racist but now he's a hero to nazis*

  • wait a minute...

  • No! You changed it!

  • come on media what are you doing?

  • what does it say now?

  • *Pewdiepie's fall shows the limits of 'lol just kidding'*

  • Hey alright

  • Emma Grey Ellis

  • may I just say that if you're gonna call someone

  • a hero to the nazis

  • you may want to double check if that's true or not

  • because afterwards you can't go 'lol just kidding' (roasted)

  • the amount of cherry-picking that the media came out with after this whole thing

  • to prove this narrative that I'm somehow an anti-semite

  • that was eh *kiss* beautiful

  • Please keep doing it, it's hilarious

  • *chuckles*

  • Vox media posted this unironically

  • *arguably similar to Nazi fashion*

  • *recently he has been wearing Himmler style glasses*

  • *and sporting a fashy [slang for fascist] Hitler youth haircut*

  • VOX

  • You got me (me too)

  • damn it

  • *sigh*

  • i didn't want to admit this

  • i didn't want to talk about this

  • I love Korean fashion

  • I love K-pop

  • That's why I dyed my hair

  • I'm going through a mid-life crisis here ok?

  • I want to be a K-pop star!

  • JK Rowling is calling me a fascist

  • Why? I don't *chuckles*

  • I guess she read it on eh she read it off a headline

  • and sort off went with it

  • well I read on an online article that

  • you once said in an interview that you found dressing up as a nazi arousing

  • I read that on an online website so it must be true! (roasted)

  • right? JK?

  • so I made the apology video where I thought at least was from the heart

  • explain the situation

  • and I admitted it that I didn't do everything like I'm not guilt-free in this situation by any means

  • it was met by the warmest

  • positivity from the internet and anyone that i think saw it

  • it was just amazing and I owe you guys my biggest thanks for all the support that I got from that video

  • (love you pewds <3)

  • however! the media wasn't as impressed

  • they kind of stuck with their narrative

  • *Pewdiepie half-heartedly apologizes, calls media "motherfuckers"*

  • *Pewdiepie's "apology" for Nazi jokes shows that he still doesn't get it*

  • *trump and Pewdiepie are using the same playbook*

  • so we basically went from "Pewdiepie is a nazi" to "Pewdiepie is trump"

  • we'll get there one day media i'm sure we'll get there one day

  • and I want to point out not all media okay

  • i've seen more and more balanced articles come out about this situation

  • even though it seems pretty dead at this point

  • the whole situation is a testimony of old media not understanding youtube

  • the fucking senior editor of wall street journal

  • *chuckles*

  • the senior editor of wall street journal tweeted

  • *man this pewdiepie video is long*

  • i'm sorry mike i'll try and cut it down next time a little bit for you

  • so you don't have to spend so much time doing your journalist research

  • maybe i'll add a little meme

  • maybe that will make it more interesting for you

  • i dunno

  • senior editor huh how about that (roasted)

  • let's get into the wall street journal thing

  • there's one thing that I wanted to talk about that i didn't really do in my last video

  • which was the fact that wall street journal went to the brands that i work with

  • before they came to me for a comment

  • i know this because they didn't just talked to disney and youtube

  • it shows to me that they were just after making the strongest headline and the strongest story

  • that they could get without any regards of what kind of damage they would do in the process

  • i mean why would wall street journal care about minimizing harm

  • it's not like it's one of the fore-major section in the journalist's code of ethics (true)

  • i-i-i- mean why would wall street journal care about that?

  • i don't understand

  • they wanted that headline, they got the headline

  • *wall street journal should've tried to get a response from me (pewds) directly to begin with*

  • *not going to brands I work with first. Proves to me their maliciousness.*

  • christopher mims of the wall street journal tweeted back at me

  • *demonstrably false but anyway welcome to our post-truth age*

  • he says *nothing, absolutely nothing gets printed in the wall street journal without an attempt to reach a mentioned subject for comment*

  • so seems fair right?

  • but then he goes and says *I have no idea about the chronology*

  • which was my fucking point!

  • christopher mims you demonstrated yourself false

  • so welcome to the post-truth age (roasted)

  • the other thing that i had a problem with which i already brought up

  • i don't think i need to elaborate on it

  • which is the context or lack of context

  • i think in the video there was one piece of context out of five in total

  • so if you think that's a balanced way of doing journalism, you tell me

  • i have a big problem with the whole thing in general

  • because this whole thing wasn't a problem until it was brought up

  • because my audience understand they were jokes

  • they weren't actually doing anyone any harm

  • but the way the wall street journal defended this was that

  • neo nazi websites were supporting me

  • calling it the no.1 pewdiepie fansite

  • which i obviously had no idea about, believe it or not, i don't go to neo nazi websites *chuckles*

  • the wall street journal condemns me for using "posts"

  • they don't call it jokes

  • they literally said that the fact that I used adolf hitler and the fact that I used nazi imagery

  • that's bad enough

  • it seems right here that you are guilty of the same thing

  • *german*

  • oh look there is hitler~ this looks like nazi imagery to me~

  • someone start the press!

  • i think we have a scoop!

  • it turns out the neo nazi websites have changed their mind

  • right now, they are the no.1 wall street journal fansite

  • interesting! i don't believe wall street journal has made a statement!

  • CONDEMNING THESE WEBSITES

  • SO THEY MUST BE A NAZI-SUPPORTING WEBSITE NOW

  • I THINK WE NEED TO TALK TO THEIR SPONSORS ABOUT THIS

  • NOT WALL STREET JOURNAL THEMSELVES

  • OR DOES CONTEXT MATTER? I DON'T KNOW~

  • OH LOOK! HERE'S THEIR SPONSORS!

  • HOW ABOUT THAT~

  • GUESS WE NEED TO TALK TO THEM FIRST

  • i realize how childish i sound okay

  • it's just to illustrate this point

  • and if you didn't think it could be any more unethical or any more stupid

  • one of the journalists ben fritz

  • it came out that he's been doing the same kind of jokes

  • NO! NOT BEN FRITZ!

  • SAY IT'S NOT TRUE

  • *he has a hard on for the nazis*

  • NO!!! NO!!!

  • THAT'S AN ANTI-SEMITIC JOKE

  • HE WANTS TO FRY THE JEWS?

  • sorry, sorry, i don't even want to show these jokes

  • i don't show anti-semitic imagery on my channel that's disgusting

  • i'm so disappointed in you ben fritz

  • i didn't want to say this because it didn't feel neccessary

  • but there wasn't just pressure to get my show cancelled

  • along with other brands that i work with that they reached out to

  • youtube also had pressure to demonetize my entire channel essentially getting me fired

  • luckily my videos does not go against community guildelines

  • so it didn't but they tried

  • so it seems only fair by wall street journal's own way of conducting themself

  • that ben fritz should get fired

  • this whole thing has been embarrassing

  • it's been a fiasco

  • it doesn't make me happy when i find like these things out it makes me sad

  • that this is the world we live in, where people

  • people make articles about people making jokes that they make themselves

  • trying to get their lives ruined

  • a thing that i saw a lot on the media was that

  • because i said wall street journal did this attack on me

  • and people just didn't believe me

  • like what does wall street journal has to gain from that or

  • they are such different organization like they have nothing to do with what I do

  • so it wouldn't make any sense

  • well here's a graph showing the trust in media going down based on age

  • i assume that pieces like this is not helping with that

  • here's a graph of the newspaper ad revenue from digital and print

  • showing decrease of revenue in the media

  • oh okay so wall street is losing influence and income

  • hmm i wonder who's gaining that right now?

  • so what does wall street journal has to gain from doing a piece like this on me?

  • nothing nothing obviously

  • i mean why else would they put the article behind a pay wall, twice?

  • so wall street journal is losing revenue

  • maybe maybe i should buy the wall street journal

  • actually i don't know, it seems like a failing business to me *BURN*

  • *music*

  • *laugh*

  • 'context matters ben' *laughs*
