What a surprise…
The article entitled
White Guy Whines about Having to Follow Indian Laws, later changed to PewDiePie Asked to Delete T-Series Diss Tracks, Fans Complain About Rule of Law and featured with an extremely high-resolution image of PewDiePie opens with:
Imagine Indians and their opinions/laws/judegements actually having to matter.Shantanu David – News 18
Yes, judgments is spelled wrong on the article. The author, Shantanu David seems to ignore several key points that completely invalidate his point.
- The judgment in question, to remove PewDiePie’s songs, was not created by or for the Indian people. The judgment was created by Delhi High Court influenced by (and most likely paid for) T-Series, a corporation, with the intent of censoring videos from the Indian people.
- He says that PewDiePie’s throne is built on invalidating other groups, which couldn’t be a more direct antithesis to how PewDiePie became so famous.
PewDiePie isn’t the only one who would disagree with India’s laws, the other being would world-famous civil rights leader Dr.Martin Luther King Jr, leaving Shantanu David in an awkward position for calling PewDiePie a “white supremacist” for disagreeing with said laws.
One has not only a legal, but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.Martin Luther King Jr. – Letter from the Birmingham Jail
So sure, Shantanu David, PewDiePie must be a white supremacist for disagreeing with the exact kind of laws Dr. King said everyone had a moral responsibility to disobey.
Furthermore, the article completely displays disregard for the truth, and is just an opportunity to call PewDiePie a “White Supremacist” with no sources at all (what a novelty!). The writer takes many opportunities to mock PewDiePie and call him racist for no reason. For example, the first paragraph starts with:
PewDiePie, that most assured of social media parasiticals, has been quivering of late.Shantanu David on his article
The entire article is based around the claim that PewDiePie is worried or upset that his videos were removed, when in reality he hasn’t even responded at the time this article was written.
The article continues to invalidate itself with more racist and defamatory remarks such as calling PewDiePie fans neo-Nazi fetishists which is simply crazy and untrue, and calling PewDiePie: Felix Whatshisname.
Shantanu David on his article
Felix Whatshisname proceeded to inflame social media narratives with quasi-racist bovine excreta and other things caucasian demagogues care about.
This remark had many people realizing the absurdity of this obscene article, as he hypocritically makes fun of Felix’s Swedish (also difficult to pronounce) family name. He also made fun of Felix for being white in the former title, but that title has since been changed.
I don’t know. I am not supposed to give my personal opinion, but maybe there isn’t something wrong with PewDiePie. Given the ratio of likes on the author’s Tweets and the fact that people everywhere are calling this nothing short of the magnum-opus of “Bad Journalism” it seems like it is much more likely that there is something wrong with what he knows, or doesn’t, about PewDiePie.
Laws created by corporations (via $) to protect them from non-defamatory material have no place in a legal system. This has absolutely nothing to do with race. Plus, you may be in trouble with American laws regarding Defamation. If Felix has to worry about India’s laws, then you better get worrying.I am not supposed to have my own personal opinion.
There are just laws and unjust laws. Just laws protect everyone, promote safety, ensure fair equal opportunity and prevent unfair practices. Unjust laws promote one group over another, skew the playing field and should be changed!
