YouTube, Disney come down hard on PewDiePie after anti-Semitic stunt
Enlarge (credit: YouTube Red)
A couple of big names are severing ties with Felix Kjellberg, otherwise known as PewDiePie on YouTube. The Wall Street Journal reported that Disney's Maker Studios dropped PewDiePie from its company, which had previously partnered with the YouTube creator to make the entertainment network Revelmode. Shortly after that announcement, Variety reported that YouTube cancelled the second season of Scare PewDiePie, the YouTube Red show starring Kjellberg, and dropped PewDiePie from Google Preferred, one of the company's advertising programs for top-tier brands and talent.
All of this follows PewDiePie's video posted last month in which he paid two Indian men to hold up a sign that said "Death to all Jews." He did this using a site called Fiverr , a freelance website that lets anyone pay for a variety of services—including graphic design and programming—for just $5. One of the services listed at the time was for Funny Guys, a comedy duo consisting of the two Indian men who would hold up a sign with anything written on it for $5.
After the initial backlash toward PewDiePie's video, the YouTube creator posted a follow-up video in which he says he didn't think the men would actually hold up such an offensive sign. Fiverr banned Funny Guys after the incident; the duo said they didn't understand what the sign meant at the time. PewDiePie apologized while asking Fiverr to reinstate the men to its website, claiming he felt "partially responsible." He also responded to the controversy on his Tumblr page this weekend, defending his channel as "entertainment, and not a place for any serious political commentary," but he also admitted that his previous actions were "ultimately offensive." PewDiePie is no stranger to offensive content, as most of his videos showcase his bombastic sense of humor, but that hasn't stopped 53 million people from subscribing to his channel.

YouTube cuts business ties with PewDiePie, one of its biggest stars, over anti-Semitic videos (GOOG, GOOGL)
YouTube
YouTube is breaking up with one of its most popular stars after it was discovered that he posted videos with Nazi references and anti-Semitic content.
YouTube canceled its YouTube Red original show starring Felix Kjellberg, also known as PewDiePie, after the Disney-owned online video network Maker Studios made a similar move on Monday.
A YouTube representative confirmed to Business Insider. We've also reached out to Kjellberg for comment.
Disney ended its relationship with Kjellberg after The Wall Street Journal asked the company about Kjellberg's videos . The Journal found nine videos produced and starring Kjellberg that had anti-Semitic or Nazi content.
Kjellberg's show, "Scare PewDiePie," was a YouTube original accessible through the company's subscription service, YouTube Red. The show was about to premiere its second season. YouTube is also removing Kjellberg from Google's preferred advertising program, which helps the platform's most popular personalities attract bigger advertisers.
Kjellberg's personal YouTube page is still live, but some of the controversial videos no longer have ads running against them. His other videos still have ads from YouTube's auction service, but advertisers have the option to opt out from having their ads displayed against Kjellberg's videos. Season one of "Scare PewDiePie" is also available, and it is unclear if YouTube will decide to take it down.
This is a big blow not only to Kjellberg, but to YouTube itself as it works to drive subscriptions for YouTube Red, which costs $10 a month and offers an ad-free experience along with original programming. YouTube Red needs the leverage of giant stars like Kjellberg to attract more paying users.
Kjellberg is the highest-earning YouTube personality, reportedly bringing in $15 million in 2016 . He has over 53 million subscribers on his YouTube page . He became famous by posting videos of himself playing video games and adding goofy commentary.

With more than 53 million subscribers on YouTube, Kjellberg has turned his videos into a lucrative business, earning more than $14m per year from advertising, sponsorship and appearance fees.

Disney Severs Ties With PewDiePie After Anti-Semitic Videos
Disney has cut ties with YouTube personality Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg in the wake of anti-Semitic content found on his channel.
According to a review from the Wall Street Journal , nine of Kjellberg's videos contained anti-Semitic imagery, including Nazi salutes, swastikas, and shots of Hitler. One video included someone dressed as Jesus Christ, saying "Hitler did absolutely nothing wrong." Using freelancing site Fiverr, Kjellberg also commissioned an Indian comedy duo to hold up a sign that read "Death to All Jews," while laughing.
Some viewers may find the linked video disturbing .
In a response to the controversy, Kjellberg posted to Tumblr , stating he was "trying to show how crazy the modern world is, specifically some of the services available online. I picked something that seemed absurd to me—That people on Fiverr would say anything for five dollars." He took pains to state that he in no way supports "any kind of hateful attitudes," and thinks it laughable that anyone would believe he would endorse hate-based groups. "I make videos for my audience," he wrote, "I think of the content that I create as entertainment, and not a place for any serious political commentary. I know my audience understand that and that is why they come to my channel. Though this was not my intention, I understand that these jokes were ultimately offensive." The post closes with "thanks for reading," without any form of concrete apology.
Disney's partnership with Kjellberg was extended via Maker Studios, a video production company acquired by the entertainment giant in 2014. Kjellberg was given co-ownership of the multi-channel network Revelmode as part of the deal. In a statement to the WSJ, a Maker Studios spokesperson said "Although Felix has created a following by being provocative and irreverent, he clearly went too far in this case and the resulting videos are inappropriate." The spokesperson said Kjellberg had full editorial independence as part of the deal, and that "Maker Studios has made the decision to end our affiliation with him going forward."
Jonathan Vick of the Anti-Defamation League told the WSJ that even pretending to espouse hateful views does damage. "Just putting it out there brings it more and more into the mainstream," he said.
YouTube has thus far declined to comment.

PewDiePie dropped by Disney and YouTube over anti-Semitic joke videos [updated]

Disney has severed ties with PewDiePie after the YouTube sensation posted numerous videos that contained anti-Semitic jokes in recent months, reports The Wall Street Journal. The publication noted that PewDiePie, aka Felix Kjellberg, had nine videos dating back to August 2016 containing such content on his channel. He’s garnered a following of more than 53 million subscribers over the span of his career. The most recent one, from last month, showed two shirtless men laughing as they held up a banner that read, “Death to All Jews.” PewDie has since removed the clip, but you can see an excerpt from…

Last month alone, the YouTube star showed a clip of a man dressed as Jesus Christ saying “Hitler did absolutely nothing wrong,” and paid two Indian men to hold up a banner reading “Death to All Jews” via freelancing website Fiverr, but Kjellberg has argued that he is not serious in his use of the imagery.

Disney has dropped PewDiePie, the world's highest-earning YouTube star, over anti-Semitic videos
PewDiePie
Disney has dropped PewDiePie, the world’s highest-earning YouTube star, after a series of videos that featured anti-Semitic messages, according to The Wall Street Journal.
PewDiePie, a 27 year old from Sweden named Felix Kjellberg, whose foul-mouthed gaming videos have netted him 53 million subscribers, made $15 million in 2016 , according to Forbes. Some of that was a result of a joint venture with Maker Studios, the multi-channel network Disney bought for $675 million in 2014. That joint venture is finished in the wake of these videos, Disney confirmed to Business Insider.
“Although Felix has created a following by being provocative and irreverent, he clearly went too far in this case and the resulting videos are inappropriate," a spokeswoman for Maker Studios told Business Insider. "Maker Studios has made the decision to end our affiliation with him going forward.”
According to a Wall Street Journal review of Kjellberg’s channel, he posted nine videos since August that “include anti-Semitic jokes or Nazi imagery.”
One such video from January 11, since taken down, featured Kjellberg hiring two men to make a sign that read “Death to All Jews,” using the freelancer website Fiverr. Kjellberg later said that video was a joke that had gone too far, and YouTube pulled ads from the video. (YouTube hasn’t pulled ads from any of Kjellberg’s other videos, nor taken any of the videos down, though Kjellberg has himself.)
The situation is further complicated for YouTube, since beyond Kjellberg being its biggest star, he also has a show on YouTube’s $9.99-a-month premium service, YouTube Red, called “ Scare PewDiePie .”
Update: YouTube has killed the second season of "Scare PewDiePie," and removed Kjellberg from its preferred advertising program, which gets popular YouTube stars better ad deals. "We’ve decided to cancel the release of Scare PewDiePie Season 2 and we’re removing the PewDiePie channel from Google Preferred," a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement.
PewDiePie has not responded to a request for comment.
