[c=#666666]I'm worried for PewDiePie. More than 40 people in New Zealand died by the hand of a person who's last words were: [i]"Subscribe to PewDiePie."[/i] This meme was carried on to some extremes, and some people just liked it for how far a meme like this could get, while other people cared about the symbolism; that platforms like YouTube is for generic people, and not large corporations. I've never been a fan of this PewDiePie, his content makes me laugh at times, but mostly he seems to me like any other person from Sweden; I'm from Denmark, and Danes and Swedes meet all the time. I thoroughly believe that he's just a common idiot, for what media earlier blew up to be "racism". In Denmark we describe these people as that they're walking around carrying their head in their arms. I bet everyone knows the type, and they have no evil intentions.
I am deeply sorry to hear about this tragedy, and my sympathy goes out to anyone who's lost someone.
I'm also worried about PewDiePie as a person now, because the thing is that platforms like YouTube does allow for generic people to become very well-known, as he is, but it's a gray-zone; he's not an actor or a musician, he's just a person like you and I, with a little office where he makes funny videos. I fear for him and his girlfriend's safety, because there are enough crazy and stupid people who will want to believe that it was somehow his doing. Yeah, sounds unlikely, but it's not, this world is filled with idiots, and he's just a generic person.
If something happens to PewDiePie/Felix or his girlfriend, as a follow of this tragedy, we have failed as a society.[/c]
