Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, September 11, 2017

The world's highest-paid YouTube star, PewDiePie, has used the "n-word" during an online broadcast. The 27-year-old Swede - real name Felix Kjellberg - could be heard using the racial slur while he was playing a video game during a live streaming. After using the term, he apologised and said: "I don't mean that in a bad way."

He has previously had to defend himself over allegations of anti-Semitism, and was suspended from Twitter for making jokes about so-called Islamic State.

In February, some of his videos were found to contain Nazi references or anti-Semitic imagery, which resulted in Disney cutting ties with him.

PewDiePie has more than 57m subscribers on YouTube.

He is reported to have made $15m through YouTube last year - he gets billions of views per month and generates vast amounts of income from advertising.

If you have never sat down and listened to gamers chatting during play - you should. You should hear these adults, young adults and LITTLE kids while playing these games. I am talking about kids in that 8-10 year old group and even younger that should never be allowed near these games.

Cursing in general is prevalent unless it is a game with strict enforcement.
N-word is ever present. Ever hear that from the mouth of an 8 year old? You hear it regularly. Wonder where they learned it.
Heck player Names are sometimes downright obscene.
Anti-Semitic rants are common.
Pro-Nazis are common.

Heaven forbid a girl says something in a game because the testosterone flow is like Irma hitting Florida.

I'll assume you're older than 13 and have a life.

This guy also lost a contract with Disney for antisemitic comments.

Way to go stupid.

People playing video games say mean things? We should execute them, and ban all video games.

Chappelle does it, has an instant classic show that is immortalized.

White guy does it, society goes nuts.

I'm a huge fan of Chappelle and his type of non-PC comedy. So it really sucks when others, who may be just as gifted as Chappelle, can't entertain us with the same type of comedy. PewDiePie is not nearly as gifted of course but he does use non-PC humor, but we have to miss out on an entire type of comedy because only a few races are allowed to do it. Yet some people may even be able to do it better than Chappelle but they will never get the chance. All because of race. Because so many people think words are akin to violence but words are our way to express all emotions safely whereas violence is used to express a very limited few. Stupid world we live in.

Youtube has been demonetizing and deleting many sites and content, not because they are actually obscene or offensive, but because they they are not leftist. Evidence, the Amazing Atheist and Sargon can't run ads to pay for their content and production, because they occasionally use ruff language. Yet the Young Turks, is fully monetized, has ad revenue on every one of their videos and they are real potty mouths. Some of the censorship is getting truly insane. Youtube is destroying it's self. It is no longer a forum of debate and ideals. It has become sort of an echo chamber for the left and the far left.

#11; You're mistaking the world's liberal bias for YouTube's.

12 | Posted by IndianaJones The world does not run Youtube, the censors of that organization have obviously been selected based upon their views.

If you don't like Youtube's censorship policies... start your own on-line streaming service. Nobody makes you watch or use Youtube videos. I am tired of white supremacists and neo-nazis whining because private businesses 'discriminate' against them.

#15 | Posted by moder8 Because the free market isn't really free. I do not think I could get the 4 to 5 million it would cost in servers to start up the enterprise, besides reddit and 4-tran are already taking you-tube's place.

#21 | Posted by J_Tremain,I never visited that site, BTW- "Ignorance is correctable, but stupidity goes on forever". I also deliberately misspelled Reddit. Perhaps if I have a couple more strokes, I can call myself a Democrat.

The left side of the brain is responsible for controlling the right side of the body. It also performs tasks that have to do with logic, such as in science and mathematics. On the other hand, the right hemisphere coordinates the left side of the body, and performs tasks that have do with creativity and the arts.

Don't kill the wrong side please!!!!
