People using the racist shit Disney’s used in cartoons before for why Pewdiepie isn’t at fault is just… really out of context, plain and simple.

Disney no longer uses those characters, imagery, or jokes. Ever. Full stop they do not use any of them and never air those cartoons again because they are offensive, insensitive, and racist. Even if they didn’t mean them to be, they have taken responsibility for their actions, unlike Pewdiepie. Pewdiepie’s antisemitic videos were made for the purpose of making antisemitic jokes, nothing more. They can’t even be called jokes either, because a man literally walks around dressed as Jesus and praising Hitler. That isn’t a joke, it’s Nazi propaganda because at no point is this framed as a bad thing, it’s framed as people’s horrified reactions being “funny” and “over the top”, justifying the video.

At no point is there an apology or even statement recognizing how damaging and outright terrifying this is, because as it stands right now there are legitimate nazis out and about threatening people’s lives; there is no way for people to be able to tell until after the fact that it was supposedly a joke and not an actual nazi. This is just one of multiple videos he did in this manner.

So yeah, it’s not the same thing and Pewdiepie is actually at fault. If you fail to see this, and still ‘stand with Pewdiepie’, please examine your actions and ideas because you are standing with someone, who intentionally or not, is validating the ideals of a group of people who’s purpose is to work tword the genocide of already stigmatized groups of people.
