Ok so there's a backstory to how this happened: PewDiePie was doing a livestream and used the n-word during a gaming live stream. He was playing Playerunknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) This is what he said: "What a f****** n***** Oh my god, what the f***?" After uttering the racial term, he said: 'I don't mean that in a bad way.' The live stream, titled CALIFORNIA ROLL, has now been removed from his account. The most interesting part of the story is the reaction of the game dev community as a whole. The DMCA takedown is from one of the creators of a different game, Firewatch, Sean Vanaman because he's sick of Pewdiepie (and other gamers maybe?) of making money from their hard work: He said on Twitter: "There is a bit of leeway you have to have with the internet when u wake up every day and make video games. There's also a breaking point. I am sick of this child getting more and more chances to make money off of what we make. He's worse than a closeted racist: he's a propagator of despicable garbage that does real damage to the culture around this industry. I'd urge other developers & will be reaching out to folks much larger than us to cut him off from the content that has made him a millionaire. Furthermore, we're complicit: I'm sure we've made money off of the 5.7M views that video has and that's something for us to think about." __________________________________________________________ What are your thoughts on this? IMO, What he said is just wrong. I don't see how anyone can defend him. Pewdiepie has history of this sort of thing too. But what about the game dev's reaction. Has Pewdiepie just ruined it for everyone? Will gaming companies now stop allowing Youtuber's to use their content? Thoughts?
