Content Creators Don’t have to be Perfect People
I don’t expect every single person who makes art or content for people to enjoy need to be upstanding moral people. That’s an unrealistic thing to expect.
However expecting everyone, including content creators and artists, to not be actively bigoted or defend bigotry “as a joke” is not a high expectation of anyone. Any content creator that cries about how they or their peers aren’t “respected” after they say/do something bigoted are being immature and defensive. There are consequences for your actions and it doesn’t matter how popular you are on youtube or any other platform.
