How does that word even pop into your head to use, regardless of if you're frustrated or not?

Absolutely bizarre, no defence at all for saying that the way he did. He seems like he has lost his grip on reality with the insane success of his channel.

The developers of Firewatch have DMCA requested take downs of all his videos playing it, so now people are trying to turn it into a freedom issue.

"If they go after pewdiecunt, what will stop them from making it so none of us can play other people's content and take money for ourselves!"

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.

BBC have run with it. The report mentions all his other racist outbursts too.

There's no way it just pops into someone's head like this without them using it before.

An Alastair Campbell type...

'I have a lot of black friends and they use it all the time thus I subconsciously used it in the heat of the moment. I'm sorry if I caused accidental offence.'

Carries on as normal.

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.

Of course 'Contrary' John Walker thinks the DMCA thing is a bad idea

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.

Abusing the DMCA. :lol:

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.

Not a great word to be saying, especially on a YouTube video that will see over a million views.

The people defending him are as stupid as he is.

This whole YouTube celeb thing is crazy to me. I do follow smaller channels on it.

He's so slimey. I liked him as a writer on RPS and whenever he tears into the UK games journalist clique, but other than that he comes across as an obtuse bellend, especially on twitter.
