Agreed. It's clearly not controversial at all. Those that ARE Nazis will of course not see anything controversial about it because they think they are the correct view. The rest of us (thankfully a majority) disagree.
I never thought we'd back here battling Nazis as a real non-trivial entity again 72 years later, but here we are. I suppose 72 years is long enough for the events that transpired in WWII to be far enough in the past where no one has a real attachment to how truly vile that time was.
Because Brendan is a smart guy and he should know that if a guy who's playing a character based on a sort of lame stereotypical 80s movies star, and he talks about round house kicking you, you should know instantly he's having a laugh. Especially when he randomly adds "lightning" at the end to make it absolutely clear. The whole reaction was childish.
It's very sad it instantly devolved to "someone did a violence on me once" wah wah etc.
I think that's up to Brendan, not us. I don't really care how much somebody is joking, if they're some dude on the internet (i.e. not a personal friend) with thousands upon thousands of fans/followers (many, many, many of whom take him 100% seriously), I certainly wouldn't want them making 'jokes' about beating me up, and I've never had a traumatic experience with it.
I don't think it's up to the target of a joke to 'get it', it's up to the guy making it to be funny.
I don't really see why playing a character is an excuse to be an asshole?
Well I mean, realistically, that's playing with fire for journalists. Two large companies dumped PewDiePie over this, journalists tend to have sponsors they need. Plus, at least for PCGamesN, they put his statement on the matter, and there's not really anything else that needs to be said, is there?
I think it's one of those issues where people don't really sit on the fence about it and are going to be convinced by an article.
Families are lovely.
Is that friendly enough?
