Listen to us

The Mainstream media is unfairly maligning Felix Kjellberg as an anti-Semite, decrying a handful of jokes that he had made in his videos over the last six months.

This has been a campaign of character assassination that has cost him his sponsorship deal with Disney and YouTube Red. Felix Kjellberg runs the largest YouTube channel in history, called PewDiePie, and the loss of these sponsorships has cost him millions of dollars.

This is a completely unfair attack on Kjellberg. He is a comedian and his jokes are not an indication of bigotry, they are only meant to make you laugh. This is not an isolated occurrence, there are dozens of articles in existence attacking alternative media personalities.

More importantly, we cannot let the media wage war on comedy and go unchallenged. Satire is an important tool at our disposal for political discourse and we should not let them take it away from us.  

If a comedian wants to make off-colour jokes, they should be free to do so knowing that it is only a joke.  Nothing is off-limits for comedy.
