No need to apologize! I’m glad you like ‘em!
No need to apologize! I’m glad you like ‘em!
Because I like to depress myself.
I don’t like PewDiePie, what are you talking about? And wouldn’t that just give me more reason to go on it if I did?
To those who may agree with this in any aspect and IrisHime:
First of all, THESE ARE STILL NOT FUCKING JOKES, this is him going “Look, he’s black, so he’s dangerous! Look, he’s Asian, so I trust him!”, and the fact you characterize that as a “joke” just shows how low the bar is set for what the Bros qualify as humor. A joke needs to be timed correctly, to have a punchline, etc. Not a guy saying “He’s Asian, ha ha! Everyone, laugh with me! SUBSCRIBE!” He does this BECAUSE HE HAS NO CREATIVITY!
In case you couldn’t tell by the nothing worth of information I have publicly given about myself, I’m Peruvian-American. Let’s say PewDie said “Ah, a Latino! Don’t rob me, have a burrito!” I wouldn’t take that as a joke, I’d think he’s trying really fucking hard to be funny by being offensive. You can not base your argument on “I’m not offended, therefore, no one else should.”, and then call people pretentious for being offended. And believe me, I’ve tried seeing this from so many other points of views, but the only conclusion I’ve been able to come to is that you only care about how you feel about the subject, and just don’t want to listen to what anyone else has to say about it!
I already covered how taking my “did you know?” image seriously is just fucking stupid, so HERE IT IS, so I don’t have to repeat too much from it.
You know what, I like that PewDie’s little quote is brought up (And in black and white too, to make it look artsy!), because what you’re doing is the completely opposite of that, as shown by your response to my post. “Life’s too short to focus on things you don’t like” can easily be interpreted as “If you don’t like it, don’t watch it” with the small addition of “You’re wasting your time”, which is the dumbest argument anyone can bring to the table.
‘If you don’t like what I’m saying, DON’T READ IT! You’re wasting your time reading it!’ The argument works both ways.
And now for sheer hypocrisy: You didn’t find my post funny, so you took it in a literal sense… I don’t think PewDiePie is funny, so why can’t I take what he says seriously?! If you’re really such a “literal kind of person”, why is it you don’t take PewDie’s “jokes” seriously? Does your brain automatically switch off that function when it comes to anything he says? Of course not, you just want to believe that what he’s saying is a joke, rather than a terribly poor attempt at being funny.
^ I have never disagreed with “science” so much in my entire life. : |
• 1) if anyone actually did a scientific test with a control group on Pewdiepie (aka people who had never seen any of his videos before), it’s pretty much guaranteed that at least one of them would laugh. Why else would he have SEVEN MILLION subscribers on Youtube? Because there are at least seven million of us who think that he is. So, statistically speaking & scientifically speaking, Pewdiepie IS funny, to at least a certain portion of a general audience. This isn’t “science” at all, it’s an opinion.
• 2) a lot of people who don’t like him are upset by the fact that he’s made “rape jokes”—-in the past. While rape isn’t funny, at all, and I don’t support making light of actual rape, I feel like I can definitely defend Pewds over this one since:
a) most of the time his jokes were saying that he was “going to get ‘raped’ ” by monsters. He never said “ha ha ha rape is funny, it should happen to girls.”
There are tons of people out there who use the term ‘rape’ inappropriately. Should we round them all up and have ourselves a good ol fashion lynching?
Consider this: I am actually pretty highly offended by the word ‘fucking’; It seriously demeans and degrades the terms “making love” or “to have sex”. And yet that isn’t what people mean every time that they say the word ‘fuck’ - It has multiple meanings.
The tumblr blog devoted to hating on Pewds uses the word fuck (fucknopewdiepiefandom) in it’s URL, the majority of my friends use the word fuck, and hell, I USE THE WORD FUCK TOO. A LOT. But you don’t see me bitching about it. Because that would be pointless, stupid, and largely hypocritical. But guess what? Getting pissed over someone misusing the word ‘rape’ is about the same as getting pissed over someone misusing the word ‘fuck’.
b) None of that even matters anyways because: he’s made an apology video since realizing how badly the term rape has upset some people, and made serious attempts to avoid using the word rape in all of his videos since. Now, you can say “DOESN’T MATTER HE STILL DID IT.” but then what kind of a human being does that make you? One who wont accept apologies? ESPECIALLY since he has gone through the efforts to try and change? :/ this proves only that
-YOU are the worse person than he is, and
-He genuinely does care about what not just his fans but general people watching his videos think because several of his fans told him that the word rape showing up his his videos doesn’t bother them, and that people are just being hypersensitive, and yet he STILL is going about making attempts to NOT use the word rape in his videos anymore.
But I guess all ‘celebrities’ have to be perfect, right? They can’t make mistakes or be human, unlike the rest of us.
TLDR; THIS ISN’T SCIENCE, AND IT ISN’T FUNNY EITHER.
(PS - ROSE WHY ARE YOU A BARREL?)
I have to agree with Iris on those points.
You’re taking that image very seriously if you’re honestly trying to argue its scientific legitimacy. I made that image in maybe 2-4 minutes, and it was made as a thank you for the 1K notes I had gotten from my “PewDiePie’s Walking Dead LP” post; hence why I have that as a tag for the post itself. Hilarious enough, this image actually spawned a bunch of arguments, and I’m sort of glad it did, but sad that it got more than the post that actually wanted to concentrate on PewDie’s shitty “comedy”.
Yes, the image expresses opinion, but treats it like a fact. That’s the fucking joke… (harr harr, am I using the word “fucking” wrong?! I’ll get to that later.) Also, if you’re going to try to use statistics to say “There has to be one person that will laugh at his ‘jokes’”, you can’t only base that off how many subscribers he has. You have to take into account so many other things; For example: How many views he gets, his ‘like to dislike’ ratio, etc. I mean, I’m no mathematician, but I know you can’t just base it on subscribers.
I’d just like to point out there at are a lot more reasons one might dislike PewDiePie. It’s not all about the rape “jokes”, but let’s just talk about that since you brought ‘em up:
PewDie’s rape jokes are, undeniably, not jokes, unless you somehow consider this and this a joke. The guy tries to be offensive for the sake of making little kids laugh; to stretch comedy as much as he can. Personally, I think little kids watch PewDiePie try to be funny with vulgarity, and think “I want to be funny, just like PewDiePie! Rape, rape. rape!” and in turn, basically nullifies how serious rape actually is. That’s Just my theory, though.
And you can’t be fucking serious… You can’t compare PewDie’s use of the word “rape” to “fucking”, that doesn’t make any fucking sense. The word “fucking” does not only refer to sex, it is also an intensifier, to give a sort of emphasis, and that’s in its definition! The word is not being used incorrectly, you just want to believe it is. They’re called “HOMONYMS”, and we understand the difference between definitions thanks to something we call “CONTEXT”!
With that said, take the two quotes I linked earlier, even watch the video yourself, and try to convince me that he’s using the word “rape” to mean anything other than its definition. He’s not fucking playing Call of Duty here, people!
Alright, so about PewDie’s apology… First of all, does it really take much to know that using the word “rape” the way he does is wrong? I don’t think you need a master’s degree to know that… I could play the same games PewDie does and not say a word about rape! And I bet everyone reading this (In other words, no one; no one’s probably going to read this) could too! it’s not difficult!
From what I understand, PewDie *still* makes rape “jokes”, and he even tries to hide it by implying it rather than just saying the word! So no, I don’t accept his “apology”, because I know the only reason he made the video was to save himself from receiving hate from his own fans!
Personally, I feel THIS EXPLAINS IT BETTER THAN I DO. Hopefully I didn’t inadvertently copy anything already covered in that.
You’re a fucking idiot. My image isn’t funny. You should find a better LPer to watch.
Personally, I just do it ‘cause I like seeing people enjoy the things I post, and because I feel the things PewDiePie does/says in this videos is a problem that should be addressed. *cough* …and’causethedramaisfunnytome… *cough*
If you’d like to know why the hate blogs do it, you could try asking ‘em yourself, though I’m pretty sure the lot of ‘em have a FAQ page for that.
