The performers, who call themselves “funnyguys”, advertise that they will paint any message on their body in exchange for money while dancing in the jungle.
While many choose their own name or a funny message, PewDiePie jokingly asked the pair to display: “DEATH TO ALL JEWS”.
He published the resulting clip, showing them dancing and laughing while holding the antisemitic message above their heads, on his YouTube channel.
While some fans found the clip funny, others said the star had gone too far.
Despite requesting the hateful message to be displayed, and publishing the resulting video, PewDiePie apologised to fans at the end of the video – but still gave the performers a five-star rating.
He said: “I am sorry. I didn’t think they would actually do it. I feel partially responsible. I mean I’ve got to give them five stars for an outstanding experience because at least they did what I asked.”
He added: “I don’t feel good. I don’t feel too proud of this, I’m not gonna lie. I’m not antisemitic, or whatever it’s called, okay so don’t get the wrong idea. It was a funny meme, and I didn’t think it would work, okay. I swear I love jews, I love ‘em.
"I am so sorry. I don’t know what else to say.”
pewdiepie paid some guys actual money to hold up a sign that said “DEATH TO ALL JEWS”, published it, gave them a 5-star rating, and then tried to shrug off any responsibility by saying he didn’t think they would really do it. he even says he only feels “partially” responsible and he’s “not antisemitic” despite the fact that he 1) posted this video so close to a surge in antisemitic hate crimes following trump’s election and 2) posted this video at all.
this isn’t funny, this isn’t satire, it’s gross and hateful shock humor at the expense of people who are already unsafe with the increasingly emboldened neo nazis–i mean, “alt right”. it’s not defensible. stop supporting him.
Rockwell Granger isn’t exactly a bad guy. On the wrong side of 40 after turfing out of the military, he’s drifted from town to town and a series of dead-end kitchen jobs and quasi-legal freelance work. But his longtime dream of owning his own restaurant has finally come true, back in his hometown of Portland. Rock should be happier than ever, but the reality of his dream has a nasty habit of dragging him down. His customers are uncultured savages, he’s not making enough money to pay back his loan sharks and they’re forcing him to do something morally iffy or they’ll take his truck. And possibly his thumbs.
Harper Marbury isn’t exactly a thief. She works half a dozen side hustles to pay her rent at the Split Apple Co-Op Loft where she shares overcrowded floorspace with dozens of spare changers, young families, traveling musicians, burnouts and scam artists. Developing a love of cooking by throwing the random ingredients found in the Co-Op’s fridge every day together to feed her roommates, Harper’s been nurturing a dream of what she could do in a real kitchen, with real ingredients. When she breaks into Rock’s truck, mostly it’s to get out of the rain, but when he doesn’t show up, she opens up for business. Just to try it out. Just to see what it’s like to cook in a real kitchen, with real ingredients.
When Rock busts Harper, he hires her on instead of kicking her to the curb, inducting her into the arcane rituals of food cart society, a land where every cart collective is a gang vying for territory and rivalries are resolved with food truck duels rolling down the middle of Hawthorne with baseball bats. While Harper learns the ropes, Rock begins his job for the Bardems, searching for the identity of a rogue food truck operator who’s invading the Bardem’s territories. Together with Harper, as his conscience and helping hand, they’ll navigate a world of secret menus, food pirates, culinary femme fatales, curmudgeonly dads, shadowy figures, creeps, foodies and 5 star ratings, trying to uncover the secret before the Bardems burn Rock’s world down.
This is in response to a very near and dear to me character's disappearance from S4. I need answers, Julie!
“So no chance of being adults about this, then?” Even sighs and gets up to crack his neck, avoiding the gaze of the smaller irate boy glaring at him from the couch.
Isak’s eyes positively glower, “I am the most adult. I am the adult-est adult in the entire spanse of adulthood.”
“Clearly,” Even makes his way to the kitchen, and when he returns it’s with two plates of Isak’s favorite dinner. “I already apologized.”
“Yeah to Jonas. What about me?” Isak sniffs, but moves a little closer to the chicken and macaroni dinner, “This smells really good, but I’m still angry.”
A quirk of the lips, “You think this smells good, wait till you see dessert.”
Isak takes a bite of the macaroni and sighs, because fuck Even can cook. He knew how to make even the simplest of meals turn into a 5 star rating on the hungry 2nd year cook-o-meter, “You think I don’t see that you’re trying to bribe my forgiveness with food and sex?”
“Who said anything about sex?”
“Oh,” Isak swallows another bite, “I had assumed that would come later.”
Even tilts his head to consider, though the smile on his lips made it clear he had made his mind up on that issue many a time ago. “Hmm. I guess that can be an option.”
“You guess. He guesses. I am traumatized, Even! Absolutely traumatized- I need the comfort of my boyfriend in these trying times.”
Even groans, laying his head back to the top of the couch, “It was a hat, Isak. A hat.”
Isak wonders if it’s too dramatic to claim that the hat was his best friend.
He’s a really shitty driver who constantly gets pulled over for speeding, although he never gets a ticket for some reason.
He has 300 5-star ratings despite keeping his car trashed. All the ratings say something like:
“Really good listener. I found myself telling him all about my problems and things I’ve never told anyone else before. He got me here in half the usual time. I didn’t even realize you were allowed to drive on the median. Neither did the cop who pulled us over, but apparently it’s fine. Great service, tipped him $500.”
my fav type of dirkjohn is dirkjohn filled with like… absolutely juvenile, petty, pigtail pulling on the playground levels of bullshit an nonsense
dirk breaks into johns house just to eat his leftovers and to give 5 star ratings to softcore gay porn on john’s netflix account and screw up his recommendation algorithm
john uses his windy powers to get into dirk’s house undetected, and every day for three weeks systematically moves his furniture one quarter of an inch to the left
dirk takes to re-arranging all of the clothes in john’s dresser so he can never find the shirt he’s looking for
john leaves water balloons in dirk’s mailbox which don’t actually accomplish anything but rolling onto the pavement and bouncing away gently and dirk has to go pick them up like a dumbass because its technically littering
dirk leaves a single slice of brooklyn style pizza tucked snugly underneath john’s windshield wiper like a leaflet
neither of them can explain why they’re doing this or what it accomplishes when prompted, and everyone around them is disgusted at their weirdass 6th grade level black-red flirting

Most likely to laugh at Monty Python
Least likely to laugh at Adam Sandler
(Argument Clinic, Cheese Shop, The Holy Grail - “Now we see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, I’m being repressed!” The shows and movie make me laugh every time. How does The Water Boy have 5 stars on Netflix?! Rates a solid 1 from me. Not a single laugh.)
Recipe of the Day: Couldn’t-Be-Easier Grilled Pork Chops
It’s no wonder this recipe has a 5-star rating — the quick and easy marinade probably won’t even require a trip to the store. To guarantee the meat absorbs as much flavor from the marinade as possible, follow Sunny’s lead: Squeeze all the air from the bag before letting the meat rest. [recipe in bio] http://ift.tt/2qShZvh
I’m glad that I re-read the book. I was able to find more that I enjoyed about it the second time through, and it gave me a good chance to think about my criticisms and why they upset me in the first place.
That said, it still felt like … a drag to get through. Pacing was a huge problem in this book, and I seriously think if that major problem had been fixed, some of the other issues might have gone with it.
I’m still very frustrated that Lucien was written out of the book halfway through. I wasn’t satisfied that he got a full arc out of the parts he was in, and his trauma was hardly addressed at all. So, generally, I’m not happy with the way Lucien was treated.
I liked the Feysand moments better the second time through, but I still maintain what I said about wanting more conflict between them.
I feel ripped off that we didn’t see Feyre’s experience in the Ouroboros. It was a lot of build-up with not enough payoff, especially given that the Bone Carver makes very little difference in the final battle.
Cassian was the best part of the book, hands-down, to the point where I almost wonder if he’s a little too perfect? I just really don’t feel like complaining about it though because so much else went wrong.
I maintain my feelings about this book needing two or three more rounds of edits, minimum. When you’re dealing with a project this big, it needs the TLC to really shine. I’m sad thinking about what this could have been if it had been given the extra time to mature. I would have happily waited.
In previous books, I didn’t mind that the magic system wasn’t fully developed or explained, but in this one, that weakness really started to show. There was a deus ex machina every time you blinked, and there were always exceptions to the rules, and that made everything frustration because you never had to worry if characters would be able to make it work. They just always did.
I’m disappointed in the King of Hybern as a villain. There wasn’t much to him at all. Amarantha was far more interesting and compelling, so it’s hard to consider this guy a step up.
There were some notable, if clunky, improvements in diversity, and I have to give some credit for that if even she arguably botched some of it.
While tonally I’m happy with the denouement and the closing of the book, there were too many frustrating things about those last chapters in particular. It kept me from being totally satisfied with the ending, and I resent that a bit. I really want to enjoy this, especially the ending, but there was just too much poor craft and awkwardness in the way. This makes me sad more than anything.
Total Count of “Oh Shit” Moments (moments where I stopped reading because I was impressed/surprised/eager to find out what was happening): 4, and this is low for an SJM book for me.
Total Rhys Lean Count: 8 (I’m being generous–could be 9 but I didn’t count the bridge or table lean as full points)
Total Count of Rhysurrection Foreshadowing Injuries: 7 (this is a lot when you’re foreshadowing the same event)
Overall, I maintain my 2/5 star rating. While I did enjoy it more the second time through, the weaknesses were still too prominent to earn a higher rating from me. I’m sad to have to say that to the follow-up of ACOMAF, but in this case it seems SJM couldn’t top herself. It’s not the end of the world, and it’s also only my opinion. I’m happy for those who did enjoy this book and I’m sorry I can’t be among you.
That’s a wrap on ACOWAR for me, but we’ll see what fic possibilities lie in my future …
Hey so a few of my friends and followers have asked me how I got above a screen of five stars in this game,. but if you want to summon with a better 5 star rate this is the best way how. Im putting this under a read more cause its lengthy
