The Internet got mad at YouTube star Felix ‘Pewdiepie’ Kjellberg because he dropped the "N" word during a livestream. Critics say Pewdiepie has a history of racist behavior. He constantly made jokes about Nazis and once made a video where he paid people to make signs which read "Death to all Jews." His fans say everyone needs to calm down. They're just words, people don't need to be so PC. What do you think? 🤔

Here's the portion of Pewdiepie's livestream where he says the "N' word. Take a watch and decide for yourself.

This incident would still be bad on its own. The thing is, he has a history of racist behavior. Disney dropped him after he made anti-semitic jokes. He hired people to hold signs saying "Death to all Jews" as part of a joke video. 

He used to joke about Nazis unrepentantly until white supremacists killed a woman and injured several more. 

It's pretty obvious the guy is racist. Or he just really likes saying and doing racist things. There's no difference between the two.

His defenders say this is a classic internet overreaction by social justice warrior types. The "N" word is just a word. He didn't say it at anyone. It was just an exclamation. 

What matters more is the intent behind the action. Pewdiepie has never done anything racist. He's never discriminated against people. He doesn't abuse people because of their race. It's just not as big of a deal as people are making it out to be.
