WSJ published an article claiming that a popular YouTuber PewDiePie (Felix Kjellberg)
made anti-semitic remarks and used Nazi imagery, to essentially promote Anti-Semitic sentiment. PewDiePie claims that his comments were taken out of context and these are targeted attacks against him by the WSJ. This is now turning into a full blown public debate with PewDiePie supported by 10s millions of his youTube followers essentially taking similar position as Trump re media being enemy of the people. Disney and other larger advertisers cut their ties with PewDiePie. The dynamics of Big name media companies vs social media influencers are changing. Both sides have strong arguments. Racism and Anti-Semitism is an important topic not to be taken lightly. This public debate is evolving daily, so which side are you on?
