PewDiePie Apologizes for Anti-Semitic ‘Jokes,’ But Attacks Media for Taking Them Out of Context

The vlogger, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, apologized for the videos, one of which detailed a stunt in which he paid two Indian men to hold up a sign that said, “Death to All Jews” and then say, “Subscribe to Keemstar” (the latter being a reference to another YouTuber). Kjellberg also reiterated, as he said in a Tumblr post on Sunday, that his intention was to point out how crazy it was that it’s possible to use Fiverr to pay random people $5 to get them to say outrageous comments, and that he absolutely doesn’t support hate groups. – Todd Spangler, Variety http://ift.tt/2lXdThJ
