If you’re curious of the deleted video regarding Pewdiepie anti-Semitic jokes, it’s a video of the two men in Sri Lanka holding a sign board saying Death to All Jews. It was paid by a YouTube star Pewdiepie through Fiverr.com.
Fiverr.com is an online freelance service that let you buy task and service at a little cost for every job performed. The two men reportedly banned from the website due to the said video and later apologized in a video to please asked Pewdiepie and Fiverr to reinstate their account saying “we really don’t know what the message meant when making the video”.
After the issue went viral covered by several news outlet, the fiver account (fiverr.com/funnyguys) was unbanned and back to normal. Later Pewdiepie also addressed the controversy posting it on his Tumblr account.
I think it’s important to say something and I want to make one thing clear: I am in no way supporting any kind of hateful attitudes.
I make videos for my audience. I think of the content that I create as entertainment, and not a place for any serious political commentary. I know my audience understand that and that is why they come to my channel. Though this was not my intention, I understand that these jokes were ultimately offensive.
As laughable as it is to believe that I might actually endorse these people, to anyone unsure on my standpoint regarding hate-based groups: No, I don’t support these people in any way.
