there is no place that's reasonable where you use racial slurs.
so i don't see any problem with them pulling his ability to make money off their game(s) via let's play.
They don't want their brand associated with controversy especially during the heightened racial times that's going on in the world now. But they also don't want to be associated with what is mostly likely a closeted racist Pewdiepie

Put a black guy in the same position as pewdepie and say the n word and this wouldn't even be an issue. Who cares everyone is a social justice warrior online. But never in reality. This is ridiculous

Its one thing when The Know calls this useless crap news, its another thing when the times and cnn makes articles about it, as if pewdiepie is the only person in the world that has cussed

I get yall are going after things like kek and puddie pie. yet I feel yall should be in defense. a witch hunt has started up over this add pocalypse. attacking 4chan meme groups…clearly a joke. giving poor puddie pie hell for a slip up. entertainment is hard keeping composure is hard…especially live streaming. white boys say the n word 24/7 and I know we got this big race war a goin. yet some of you are the only ones at war. the racist ones. you expect to ban words…raising your children on south park and gangster rap. one of… Read more »

Ok, so Fire Watch devs stopped him from Streaming their game. BUT how do the PUBG devs feel about it? After all, he was playing their game when he dropped the N bomb.

God, I want to punch "Video Game Attorney" in the face. Seriously.

Who doesn't love rubbing the law into gamers' faces and not doing anything to change that? I know I don't.

You know when people say words it physically hurts people. It exactly like burning people alive. Not sure how anyone who experienced that holocaust like trauma will ever recover.

H3H3 should make public how much money did they spend in the lawsuit? They won and they will be compensated, remember they use money from the crowdfund that Phillip Defranco made. If I’m not wrong that money will be used for any other YouTuber that has a similar copy right problem.

So, about the Pewdipie thing. Should we treat the the N word like voldemort's name? As in, as long we can't see it, all will be fine? And any joke or report of news should be all sunshie and candy? Guess this YouTube refuse to promote rational thinking.

It is interesting to be more in "the know" than you guys…..now don';t mistake me…..whatever pleasure I may have from being 'in the know' is had in good fun. You seem to not know that courts have ruled that let's plays ARE within the realm of fair use. In fact….they have determined that the very nature of games being artistry that requires player involvement for the art to be realized creates a unique experience. The fact that the experience is unique makes Lets plays fair use so long as there is verbal commentary and it is clear the player is… Read more »

Oh, and I would like to once again mention that I was perma banned from Battleground Unknown Steam forums for PROFESSIONALLY being critical of their use of micro transactions. It would just be REALLY be nice if somebody held them accountable for that.

Oh noes! Objectionable content and I'm too weak to stand on my own values, so I must ban anything I think is bad.

Jonathan Tabor

the problem with comparing this to sponsorship is that those have contracts that legally bind the parties and allow for the company to pull it for certain reasons. there was no clause in the permission that campo santo gave EVERYONE. So this removes the "fair use" debate completely. He had express permission to do what he did and they used a legal sledge hammer, illegally, to tap in a tiny nail. This has backfired on their company and the game, at least on steam, has the negative reviews and comments to prove that. He wouldn't even have to defend the… Read more »

Honestly i think this issue has more to do with the gaming industry as a whole than just PewDiePie. All things take into account this brings a lot of weight to if you truly own a game or not when you buy it. It's the same controversy we've dealt with in the past. When people stream games they are not selling that game. They are getting paid yes but that depends on the service. I mean is McDonalds gonna tell me i can't vlog anymore if i say the F word while passing one on the street? Probably not. And… Read more »

It's not a word I use. And I would be quite happy if people just stopped using it altogether, (and yes that includes rappers).

But I have NO sympathy for a dev who tries to use DMCA to try and shut down lets play channels. That is really scummy, a misuse (IMO) of the DMCA system, and an attack on fair use and critique. That is a different matter from the issue of acceptable/unacceptable language.

if you got offended by what he said then you are over sensitised to the world and need to toughen up.

Meanwhile Idubbz, h3h3, Leafy, and Jake Paul have all said it. But when Pewdiepie says it is instantly a crime.

I don't agree with what pewdiepie did but I don't believe the publisher has the right to take down hisx videos it's ridiculous

People are so sensitive, so dramatic! Does this affect you or the world in any way? Any? No! It's just an youtuber, not god. People overreact for no reason. Many youtubers say stupid things, so who cares?!

So it was said while streaming? I mean fella bad yo. But media does take things way out of context. I gotta say yes he should watch his step because he has been in hot water before for things like this. BUT I agree that it seems like he is targeted more frequently than other YouTube video makers. No I am not a fan. I for one hate his videos. But I can say that I have yet to hear of any other YouTubers getting heat over language and content when there are Literally a ton of videos that are… Read more »

Yeah, I'm never sure when some racial epithet or incitement to genocide is gonna come out my mouth. I'm sure you all have the same problem.
