The King of YouTube, Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg announced Thursday he has decided not to donate $50,000 to the YouTube censors at the Anti-Defamation League after learning more about the group.
From The Wrap, "Felix 'PewDiePie' Kjellberg Pulls Planned $50,000 Donation From ADL":
"I made the mistake of picking a charity that I was advised instead of picking a charity I was personally passionate about," the popular YouTube content creator said in a video posted to his over 100 million subscribers on Thursday.
"When we were planning the collaboration, we thought it would be nice to donate to a charity as a way to celebrate," Kjellberg said in the video. "I made the mistake of picking a charity that I was advised instead of picking a charity I was personally passionate about. That’s 100 percent my fault."Though the media praised PewDiePie on Wednesday after hearing about his plan to donate to the ADL, they immediately went to work smearing him as a Nazi on Thursday after hearing he had a change of heart.
PewDiePie became the top trending topic on Twitter with their admins putting front and center the lie that he was wearing an "Iron Cross," even though it was in fact a Bolnisi cross from Georgian fashion designer Demna Gvasalia.
Lying journos had to retract their smears as a result.
Matt Rivitz's organized boycotting group Sleeping Giants appeared to threaten Honey with a statement pressuring them to "hand" their money "straight to the ADL now."
That sure reads to me as Rivitz essentially saying: "Hand your money over straight to the ADL or we're going to organize a boycott against you."
Is that not extortion?
Mashable rushed to accuse Pewds of antisemitism:
A bunch of other propaganda outlets also piled on.
From The New York Post, "PewDiePie rescinds donation pledge to anti-hate group after fan backlash":
YouTube star PewDiePie pledged to donate to an anti-hate group following criticism for peddling anti-Semitic content – then decided to pull his donation after backlash from his fans. [...]From The Guardian, "YouTuber PewDiePie scraps $50,000 pledge to anti-hate group after fan backlash":
The popular YouTuber Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg has withdrawn a $50,000 pledge to an anti-hate group, which he had dedicated as a means of atoning for past accusations of racism and antisemitism, after backlash from his fans.You get the picture.
I don't know whether this was all 4D chess or what, but PewDiePie effectively exposed the ADL as being behind much of the censorship on YouTube to millions of his followers and didn't have to give them a dime.
With the power of the SPLC waning after it was exposed as a money making scam, the ADL has become the go-to smear merchants for the media to label folks as "haters."
Though the ADL already seems to have been pushing to have PewDiePie deplatformed, you can bet they're going to go even harder against him after this. When YouTube moves to censor him as they've censored so many others, everyone is now going to know who is behind it.
