That Sean guy sounds jealous as fudge.

Pewdiepie being a crustard isn't news any more. I never liked him anyway

How many black people have said the N word on YouTube?

Well Pewdiepie is actually racist so who knows what he meant by this. Also there's something you regret and then there's this word. I've never said it while playing games, and I've never heard anyone else say it before.

I really have to wonder what kind of language you see people use during competitive games.  There's other words that I'd imagine coming up first....  


He's done some pretty racist stuff.  

Quote
"hiring two dancers in Sri Lanka to hold up a sign saying 'Death to all Jews,' segueing into different clips using a picture of Hitler, and doing the Nazi salute while a voice-over says 'Sieg Heil.' He also paid a Jesus impersonator to say that 'Hitler did nothing wrong.'

Source?

A couple of bad intended jokes don't make him a racist. He apologized for that.

Well when I was playing we'd use Icelandic and would be all kinds of things. Definitely something once in a while we wouldn't say in public.

But in that video that was clearly something he accidentally blurted out. He even said sorry right after.

This word really baffles me. Some people use it all the time and are fine with it but when a rich youtuber accidentally says it (once!) while focusing on a game he is suddenly racist as fudge

Let's not overreact ffs.

Just to be honest here, you guys don't really have a word like this...
Iceland doesn't really have a history of slavery and racism, so they don't really have a word like it in the language.  English does though. 

The word isn't "vulgar". 
It isn't something you don't say in public.  Words like f*ck, sh*t are in that category. 
This word is in its in category altogether.

Eh, he kind of did.

There are kind of two words.  Ni**a and Ni**er.  The latter is something that most people would say that no one is allowed to say.  The former is something that is usually a bit more allowed, usually if used by black people.  Some people wouldn't even say then...

I'm not sure how someone can accidentally say something like that. 

Have you ever accidentally said "kill all the Jews"?

Dr. Pez

Well the word is a bad profanity and just like other profanities it can be blurted out accidentally. It's just one word.

Kill all the jews is a sentence which one needs to use more brainpower to form

It isn't profanity though.  

How about "kill Jews", it is 2 syllables just like the word.

1/2 tau, i think your forgetting that he comes from a country where the word doesnt have the same weight. Its just another bad word to them. We are the only place that has the baggage that comes along with the use of the word.

Pewdiepie knows the weight of the word, I'm pretty sure you'd have difficulties finding people in his age group in western Europe that don't know the meaning of that word at all, let alone someone that is so involved in a US centric community like Youtube..
