Felix Kjellberg has done a lot of incredible work for charities, both in raising awareness, raising funds, and donating his own money. Unfortunately, if you’ve only heard about him from the recent storm of headlines from big media outlets who are intentionally misleading their readers, you’d think he was literally Hitler.
PewDiePie has always been a polarizing figure on Youtube, even before all of this recent nonsense. There’s something special about a guy who can sit in front of his computer each day and reach many more engaged viewers than most mainstream media outlets. If news channels were pulling the same kind of viewership as PewDiePie, they’d be over the moon. And he’s doing it all by himself, alone in a room, without thousands of staff members.
That’s why there’s tons of coverage about PewDiePie’s “downfall” lately, but only whispers about the countless positive things he has done. It’s not like outlets haven’t covered his charitable contributions in the past, but the tone definitely changed once he started being more critical of the media, and the way they have been covering him.
The recent character assassination on PewDiePie begs the question:
How does raising millions of dollars in cash for great charities measure up compared to making a few off-color jokes, that were taken very out of context, and then apologizing for it and accepting the consequences? Both of those things are aspects of the PewDiePie character. If you had a magic switch and you could rid the world of PewDiePie’s jokes, and his charitable contributions, you’d be a monster if you flipped it.

Corporate Media CEO Guy : "My god, we've finally gotten something big enough to ruin pewdiepie! We will tell everyone he is Hitler, no wait, worse than Hitler! It will spread to literally everyone! He will fall quickly, all because we can't deal with the fact that this guy is free to do whatever he wants and isn't tied down to contracts and such!"
couple days later
Corporate Media CEO Guy :"So, how is the plan going?"
Corporate Media Guy : "Well... the story certainly has gotten to everyone."
Corporate Media CEO Guy : "Perfect! So, I must assume he is quickly dying?"
Corporate Media Guy : "Well... um... you see sir.... it's only making him gain publicity. More people are watching him and subscribing, because of the publicity we made for him, and other youtubers are making videos supporting him. It's all just making him stronger."
Corporate Media CEO Guy : "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!!!!!"
But he is a guy whose childish jokes consists of anal and animal sex, puking, farting, and acting like a mentally challenged ape. I wouldnt be surprised if he jacks it off one day in front of the camera. I for once dont take him seriously at all, he surely didnt mean what he said, he is just a retard trying to be funny to his 13 year old audience.
You clearly haven't watched his current content... Had you wrote this back in the days, I would toally agree with you! His old content is cringy and childish and even he is aware of that. Just try to watch his videos, where he reacts to his old videos. He has matured A LOT since then and you should not compare the current PewDiePie to the old.
His current content might still not be for everyone, it never can be. But in no shape or form, does his jokes consist of and I quote "whose childish jokes consists of anal and animal sex, puking, farting, and acting like a mentally challenged ape"
But I don't blame you for getting the impression, that that is what his content consists of, cause it did ones indeed.
Thank you for your time, I hope I cleared up some things for you.
