Yep. It's crazy. Every developer it there benefits getting streaming. Campo Santo potentially denying themselves thousands of future sales and untold dollars worth of publicity and people are focusing on the IP laws. Insane.
I don't really know who he is. First I heard of him was I think some survey I was doing on YouTube personalities. Apart from the Hodge Twins (I think) I didn't know one strawberry floating person. Clearly my life is considerably enhanced in my ignorance.

I used to think the YouTube recommendation algorithm was really bad, until I realised what it wasn't showing me. Some of the biggest uploaders on the site just never show up for me. I've not had a Pewdieprick video show up for a couple of years at least, and I'd also assumed Philip DeFranco had stopped his show years ago, until I spotted something in twitter about him being embroiled in some drama or other. Apparently he's still knocking out as many videos as ever to a massive number of subscribers, and I had no idea he was even still going.
I've seen people saying "where was this fuss when [youtuber] said the n word?" There probably wasn't the sand fuss because nobody knows who the strawberry float they are. Pewdiepiss has a profile beyond just the youtube community, so he gets more gooseberry fool when he strawberry floats up. It doesn't excuse anyone being a racist.
I love videos when you see that the person knows instantly they just strawberry floated it in a major way, but then try to style it out. Warms my heart.
PDP is for kids and they dont really care if he uses racial slurs or not, its just edgy humour for them. Im sure he'll lose what remaining sponsors or endorsements he has but the boy will continue to make the dollar.
It's their game, if they don't want some shrieking racist millionaire making more money off their content, they've every right to take it down.
B-b-b-but free speech man, it dictates he has the right to say what he wants without consequence D: And no you aren't allowed to use your free speech to criticise him what's this about a double standard derp
