PewDiePie calls WSJ journos 'hypocrites', Vox reporter 'idiot', and teacher video 'dog shit'
NOTE: For all latest, breaking news related to PewDiePie, other YouTubers, and YouTube in general, head here.
PewDiePie is back, back with a new video. The YouTuber starts the video by touching on the WSJ website hack, which happened recently and was done by PewDiePie fans. For those who aren’t aware, last year, following an investigation done by WSJ over anti-Semitic jokes in Felix’s videos, Disney severed ties with the YouTuber.
So PewDiePie’s hacker fans managed to deface a section of WSJ’s website where sponsored posts get published. The message left there by hackers said WSJ offers apologies for the way their journalists misrepresented facts.
PewDiePie, in it’s own style, called WSJ reporters hypocrites, while sharing how some of those journalists have themselves made anti-Semitic jokes on public platforms.
The YouTuber then focused, yet again, on the Vox reporter who recently faced backlash (death and rape threats) after criticizing Pewds in one of her recent news stories. He said the reporter herself uses the N-word quite often, while showing some of her tweets.
He then commented on the teacher video we highlighted just a few days back. In the video, a teacher can be heard telling students how promoting PewDiePie means promoting genocide and antisemitism.
Felix termed the whole monologue as “dog shit,” while noting that a person with such an authority over kids should not be saying things which are not correct. He also said this is the kind of affect news articles have on normal people.
Aside from all this, PewDiePie spent a considerable amount of time discussing YouTube’s copyright claiming system, explaining how it’s faulty as in it only helps big corporations. There’s a lot in this new video, so do take a look:
Meanwhile, fello YouTuber Logan Paul has reminded PewDiePie about the condition at which he offered ‘subscribe to PewDiePie’ support.
It’ll be interesting to see how PewDiePie reacts to this shout out.
