#1 YouTuber PewDiePie Wrongfully Accused Of Supporting Antisemitism…

Heavily biased watchdog outlet Right Wing Watch recently reported the following about popular YouTuber PewDiePie:

Felix Kjellberg, a Swedish YouTube personality best known online by his account name “PewDiePie,” promoted in one of his video offerings another YouTube account that has posted white nationalist and anti-Semitic content.

The video in question is titled DON’T Subscribe to Pewdiepie and at around the 12:54 mark, Kjellberg starts recommending countless other YT channels to his 75 million subscribers:

His first recommendation is ‘James Lee,’ where he describes the channel as having “incredibly cool videos” and animations.

Next is ‘NakeyJakey,’ a channel with over 640K subscribers that focuses on covering video games.

Kjellberg continues this trend by recommending channels ‘William Osman,’ ‘alfsvoid,’ ‘apandah,’ and many more.

Eventually he gets to channel ‘E;R’ where he says verbatim:

“What’s up, E;R, who does great video essays about… he did one on Death Note, which I really, really enjoy.”

That’s it. He then moves on to a number of other channels before the video ends.

The mention about E;R lasts for exactly 8 seconds (from 15:08 – 15:16), but for some reason, a number of social media users and “media outlets” are losing their minds over it:

Others quickly came to his defense:

In February of 2017, The Wall Street Journal wrote an article about Kjellberg titled Disney Severs Ties With YouTube Star PewDiePie After Anti-Semitic Posts. The move came after the paper asked Disney about alleged anti-Semitic jokes and Nazi imagery found in one of the YTer’s videos.

It is yet to be known what will come of this latest “debacle” (if it even qualifies as one).

We’re sure the PewDiePie haters will be all over this for days to come…
