Pewdiepie Apologizes for ‘Jokes,’ Thinks News Media is Threatened by YouTube Stars

Pewdiepie is sorry for joking about killing Jews, especially since he’s now lost his primary source of income.

After the YouTube star was dropped by Maker Studios and Google preferred advertising over a controversial video where he paid two people to make a video saying “Death to All Jews,” Pewdiepie is apologizing. 

“I’m sorry for the words that I used, as I know they offended people,” he said. “And I admit that the joke itself went too far. I do strongly believe that you can joke about anything, but I also believe that there’s a right way and not the best way to joke about things.”

But Pewdiepie also blames the media for taking his jokes out of context, calling him a Nazi, and feels the news against him is a “personal attack.” Pewdiepie insists the news media is the old school and they are threatened by the power of the internet stars of today.

Hopefully, this is the last we’ll see of Pewdiepie, though another YouTube star is sure to come forward and make shitty videos with a bunch of not funny jokes to fill the void.
