Is PewDiePie A Antisemitic Racist Neo-Nazi?
Major articles continue to come out about PewDiePie – often reporters responding to his taken-down of their prior stories
The real issue seems to be that nuance, thoughtfulness, and consideration is dead.
We live in a world of snap judgments, gut feelings, and expressions that are rather starkly black or white.

For the last 30 days he has a net gain of about 808K+ subscribers, gaining 26k each day on average. He has only lost about 400k of his 53 Mil. subscribers.

PT Barnum, Trump and many others have used hyperbole and puffery rather than nuance. It makes for great entertainment even if something isn’t literally “the greatest show on Earth.”
I can’t imagine PewDiePie’s stakeholders coming to any other conclusion than the media is evil — despite the following links which rather clearly show that Felix has exaggerated his case.
