Deep inside, i knew that it was just a matter of time before Pewdiepie would get into deep trouble with the press in Sweden.

Because based on the kind content that he create, and the fact that his nr 1 on Youtube. His a big target for the press to pick on.

pewdiepie

The face of a sexist. At least according to Swedish media.

So what’s the fuss all about then? Well, apparently Aftonbladet (a Swedish newspaper) didn’t  like his Nicki Minaj video (“NICKI MINAJ ANACONDA BUTT SCULPTURE!”). You know, the one were Pewdiepie tries to do a 3D butt sculpture in autocad?

Basically they said that Pewdiepie is a sexist, and that he should know better. And that his “Bros” are just a “for boys only” club. As far as i know, Felix just tries to entertain people. I can admit that “some” of his videos could need some adjustments on that area.

But then again. If you read the comments on Aftonbladets article (it´s in Swedish though). Then you will notice that there´s quite a few female fans that don´t bother about this things at all. Because just like South Park, Pewdiepie jokes about everything and everyone.

I also love the fact that Aftonbladet had to state (literally) that Felix is a “white hetrosexual man”. As if that would be some kind of a crime? But what do you guys think about all this? Is Pewdiepie really a sexist?

    To be honest I’ve never watched any of his videos, but this does seem like a bit of a stretch even for the Swedish media.
    The guy comes across as a bit of a dope (obviously as part of his schtick) and it’s obvious that the daft stuff he does should just be taken as joke.

    • I´ve been watching his videos since day one pretty much. But i was not surprised to hear that Pewdiepie made headlines in Sweden, as it´s the nr 1 political correctness capital of the world.

      Of course it was made as a joke. But Swedish media diden´t take it like that, they just saw sexism all over the place.

      And they obviously missed the part about Pewdiepie making fun out of everyone and everything (no matter gender or race).

      But to be honest, i don´t think Pewdiepie cares all that much (either would eye). As he can dry his tears with millions of dollars 😉

        Haha, if I had his amount of cash I doubt I’d care all that much either :).
        Still, it disturbs me how sexism is now being used as the de facto standard for generating clicks/views and to get people outraged. Eventually it’s going to backfire and the word will lose all meaning, lord knows what they’ll resort to then.

        • For sure, i don´t know which country you´re from. But in Sweden it doesn´t take all that much to trigger the press, the feminists, SJW´s and the political correctness elite.

          True that. “Sexism” and “Racism” has lost it´s meaning for most part. As it´s been overused in the media for such a long time now…

    I never liked PiewDiePie but sexist? Give me a break!

    • I´m not a huge fan of him, but I´m impressed by his huge success on Youtube and in general. Well, In Sweden it´s very easy to be accused of being sexist…
