A Change.org petition demanding YouTube ban independent content creator and top YouTube channel PewDiePie, real name Felix Kjellberg, has reached 80,000 signatures.
The petition, started by a woman named Maria Ruiz, claims that PewDiePie must be banned after the mosque attack in Christchurch, New Zealand. Ruiz calls PewDiePie “one of the largest platforms for white supremacist content,” and says that Kjellberg has “proven once and again to promote and affiliate himself with white supremacist and Nazi ideologies.”
As evidence of her assertion, Ruiz writes that Kjellberg “used images of famous African-Americans (Neil deGrasse Tyson, Barack Obama) captioned with the wrong names,” and that Kjellberg “makes rape jokes.”
In a video response, Kjelbberg lambasted the evidence, calling them fictitious and laughing at Ruiz for failing to provide evidence. He also expressed incredulity that Change.org would allow the petition to remain on its website.
“We need to ban PewDiePie from YouTube,” the Swedish content creator joked, “That will stop all of the bad things.”
“Just by glancing over the points that they make against me, it’s so blatantly misrepresenting and misinforming people,” said Kjellberg. “A lot of these points are just flat out lies as well. Context, who needs that? Unimportant, I don’t care. Why would I need to link sources to any of the claims that defame some person? No!”
“Honestly, it’s amazing how Change.org is even allowing this to be up, because there’s nothing to back up any of the claims.”
With over 93 million subscribers to his channel, the petition represents roughly 0.08% per cent of his audience.
In recent months, as Kjellberg has been in a tight competition with the Indian mega corporation T-Series for subscribers on YouTube, he has drifted into the arena of social commentary. Kjellberg recently lambasted the infamous Gillette “toxic masculinity” commercial, and has received support from right wing media personalities including Alex Jones.
Kjellberg also recently revealed that T-Series, which enjoys unique partnerships with YouTube and Google, sent him a legally baseless cease and desist letter to compel him to stop creating content.
Spotify Snowflakes Threaten to Strike If ‘Joe Rogan Experience’ is Not Censored on Platform
Leftists hate free speech.
A contingent of leftist snowflakes working at Spotify are demanding that certain podcast episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience be censored to their ideological demands, or they will strike.
Last week, it was reported that Spotify was undergoing a revolt of sorts because several controversial episodes of the podcast were being published on the platform. An episode featuring Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, is particularly offensive to the left-wing snowflakes who hate freedom of speech and love mentally-ill individuals getting their genitals mutilated.
Rogan is already being forced to grovel for making accurate statements on his podcast, such as when he correctly claimed that left-wing terrorists are starting wildfires in places like Portland.
“I said something on the podcast with Douglas Murray about people getting arrested for lighting fires, and I got duped. It’s wrong,” Rogan said in an Instagram post.
Smelling blood in the water, the Spotify leftists are going for the jugular. They are threatening to strike if they cannot exert further ideological control over Rogan’s podcast. According to Digital Music News, New York-based Spotify employees are intending to strike with accompanying pro-censorship protests outside of Spotify’s Manhattan headquarters.
However, they report that Spotify brass is likely willing to stare down these entitled employees, considering the $100 million investment they put into Rogan’s podcast.
“It also appears that Spotify management — including CEO Daniel Ek — has a limited tolerance for the mutiny on deck… The reason for Ek’s pushback is somewhat obvious. Joe Rogan’s entire identity revolves around unfiltered discussion and opinion, and audiences could abandon the podcast if it becomes censored or controlled,” Digital Music News reported.
Big League Politics has reported on the controversial episodes of Rogan’s podcast that have already been censored by Spotify:
Fans of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast were mostly thrilled when the stand-up comedian and UFC announcer announced his move to Spotify, believing that this change would allow Rogan to have more creative freedom than he did previously.
However, this does not appear to be the case as Spotify has banned controversial and popular episodes now that the platform controls the podcast.
The Spotify channel for the Joe Rogan Experience does not host episodes featuring conspiracy icon Alex Jones and Bitcoin enthusiast David Seaman. Other right-wing figures interviewed by Rogan over the years – including Gavin McInnes, Stefan Molyneux, Milo Yiannopoulos, Charles C. Johnson, Owen Benjamin and Sargon of Akkad – have been scrubbed by Spotify as well.
Rogan fans are not happy at this early indicator that Spotify will likely be exerting massive control over the show’s content.
“This goes against his “we need to talk to everybody” shtick. Im not interested in listening to curated podcasts by his employer,” wrote Reddit user “Pluum” in disgust of the news.
“So disappointed, Alex did not even say anything too crazy on those episodes. I had Spotify premium prior to Rogan but I will probably quit my subscription just out of spite now, that will show them!” wrote user @Excavatetheinfo in another Reddit post.
“Not sure what your question is exactly but “He sold out” is kind of a general explanation of what’s going on,” user @Elgallo619 wrote in a comment.
“Spotify is partnered with Tencent Holdings, a Chinese company whose CEO is an active member of the Chinese Communist Party. Anything remotely anti-CCP is getting 86’d,” wrote user @dictatorphil about Spotify’s Chinese connections.
Spotify would be wise to not let these leftist staffers hold the company hostage due to their opposition of free of expression. If they capitulate, the Rogan podcast could be the next victim of the “go woke, go broke” phenomenon.
