A middle school in Seattle called the police after posters were found encouraging students to subscribe to PewDiePie, prompting a history teacher’s unhinged rant about the Swedish YouTuber promoting “genocide” that went viral.
As we reported on Tuesday, a video posted to Twitter featured audio of an unnamed teacher bizarrely claiming that children could be sued for sharing PewDiePie’s videos, asserting that the mild-mannered video gamer’s content was racist and anti-Semitic.
“And by every time you retweet one of these things, or every time you promote this idea, you are promoting ignorance, racism, genocide, anti-Semitism…..these are all things that you are putting forward when you are doing anything that promotes PewDiePie,” said the teacher.
“So be careful about this. If someone decided to, if something would happen and PewDiePie were to be sued for this, you could be complicit if you retweet it, they can make you pay a fine as well, because you have officially published anti-Semitic things, so if you are republishing this stuff, you could get in trouble for it, be very aware that that is a real thing,” he added.
The rant was based on completely erroneous and hysterical media reports that PewDiePie was promoting white supremacism because he liked an anime review from a channel that had uploaded other questionable content.
