The Humble Weekly Bundle: Do Not Support PewDiePie, Support the Charity.

It appears that the Humble Indie Bundle people have brought back PewDiePie (Felix Kjellberg) to host the most recent weekly bundle, which goes to support Save the Children. Felix utilises his astonishing 25 million subscriber base to try bring in crazy figures and sales, all of which goes to the charity.

There’s just one problem: that being Felix himself.

This is a man who thought it would be hilarious to scream and shout at the top of his lungs about rape or other moronic, non-humourous things. At the very end of 2012, he went on to apologise for his actions in a near nine minute video.

Actually, I should write the word ‘apologise’ with so many apostrophes and things around it, maybe add other notes with stars because of the disclaimers that are needed around the word, ‘apologise’, because he barely did that.

The video goes on for so long and the apology that actually matters isn’t till around the 6 minute mark, with it sandwiched in between a speech about how great he is because of all the charity work he’s done and his love for the fans.

He then threw away the argument as he said the usual routine of the ‘I never intended to offend’ dance and this:

“I apologised for it, even though people said we don’t care, it doesn’t matter, we understand that you’re joking.”

Your fans don’t count. Your fans who have an odd sympathy for you and from experience of actually interacting with them through Twitter look or act no older than a 16 year old still figuring out the world, do not count in this situation. How about the people you’ve truly offended, what did they say? How’d they act? I can tell you now, it’s probably the reason you never brought it up.

Oh, there’s also another surprise on top of this shitfest too! Can you guess?

Yes, if you go back to view the video now, you’ll find that by just searching for it, it’s completely hidden. YouTube’s ‘unlisted’ feature gives those with the link access, but renders it hidden from public searches. Now, it’s not actually that hard to find because of the 3+ million views, many, many responses and links to it, but for someone like me who has distanced themselves from Felix and that side of YouTube like the festering, endless plague pit that it has become, I was completely unaware that he’d done it. Until his fans told me.

Over and over again.

What they didn’t get was that he hadn’t really apologised and even if he did, then his apology was made completely moot by what was mentioned above and the fact that he still has the videos online, monetized.

Why? Maybe because he’s lying and money is a priority in all of this or maybe because he doesn’t really care. I’m going with option B and then option A.

With such a young audience and a large mass of them, it’s no surprise that he’s supporting Save the Children. A charity that in April last year released a report stating that in conflict zones, most victims of rape and sexual violence are children. They also have a focus on helping protect those children from being exploited or improper care.

Save the Children aren’t probably aware of his previous actions, but I am. You are. Most of us are. A lot of us care. No one has been apologised to and here’s Felix, parading around that he’s hosting a charity that tries to prevent what he was joking about.

It might also be a reason why in the Humble video, he never makes any mention to what Save the Children actually do, instead opting for jokes.

Rape isn’t a joke, it’s not dark humour or something you can just pass off in a 30 second apology that you hid from public view. It’s disgusting.

If you’re considering donating to this week’s Humble Weekly, I urge you not to. I urge you instead, to donate straight past the name PewDiePie and not give him the good press that this will probably transpire to. I urge you to donate through their website, whatever it was you were going to donate for some video games. You’ll be helping those in need, without helping Felix get anything out of it.

I urge you to do the right thing.

No sense of humour? A pathetic loser? Envious of Pewdiepie’s success? Oh yes, that’s definitely what is going on here people. That, or perhaps he’s making a point about the fact that rape is NOT a joke. We should not let people with a young target audience treat is as a joke. People like Pewdiepie who can influence young minds easily, are exactly the kinds of people who should NOT make jokes like this. This isn’t a matter of petty jealousy. It’s about educating the audience about what is right or wrong. If you can’t see beyond that then you’re… Read more »

The only reason people support PewdiePie is because he’s “good looking”. Seriously, that’s the ONLY reason people like him. About 80% of the comments on his videos are from women (and some men) about how “HOT” he is. Seriously, you don’t have to scroll down far to see it.

Also, if this was any other “average” gamer, people wouldn’t give a F about this specific charity. People who support PewDiePie should go kill themselves.

I can’t believe people are still whining on about the whole Pewdiepie-rape-jokes thing, it makes you look pathetic with nothing else to do but complain about people’s previous mistakes. At the time the jokes were made he didn’t have that large a fanbase, and there’s plenty of even more offensive content on youtube that you should be complaining about.
It’s clear that pewds has moved on from the whole fiasco, unlike you, who can’t seem to accept that people have moved on.

Yeah, totally rational to compare an annoying dude on Youtube to a child abuser. This is my point exactly. PewDiePie is just some shrieking douche on the internet, but everyone is all up in arms because of it, and to a degree that just does not make sense. He’s not a “bad cause”, he’s just a minor celebrity that acts like an idiot in front of a webcam, but gets enough attention that his face could draw some extra funds for charity. Is he touching kids in all his travels? Likely not; he barely moves from his computer. Let the… Read more »

It’s a general comparison. There’s some people, whether through actions or by mouth, that minimalise the nature of heinous acts by their behaviours whether they joke about it or support charities or speak up against it after saying or doing something stupid. PewDiePie is one of these idiots with his horde of witless followers who copy what he does and says and in effect, talking about rape in the way he does desensitises it, no matter what your argument. In theory, he’s promoting it as some of these kids might think that it’s within their right to act it out… Read more »

There is a huge difference between actively participating in heinous acts and speaking lightly of them. What he does is no worse than just about any other celebrity, major or minor. Most of them are idiots with idiotic views and idiotic followers, but rarely does it actually cause a surge in behavior that falls in line with those views. Foo Fighters for the longest time were very loud disbelievers of HIV. Dave Grohl himself was incredibly outspoken about it, but not many adopted the same view because of it. Justin Bieber is publicly an asshole, and while fans defend him,… Read more »

I’m not saying that eventually all his fans will become the embodiment of his inane rambling.

Rarely, maybe, but rare is still evidence of occurrence. I’m mostly open minded in general for humour, but this one’s a no-no for me. Whatever you say, I was brought up with morals and I’d rather take the higher ground on the subject of whether rape is okay to poke fun at. Not to… Read more »

And while that point is valid, the comparison to a rapist is completely unfounded. Making light of rape isn’t the same as raping children, and believing that everyone who follows the dude will behave just the same way is straight-up silly.

We have countless movies, television series, video games, and plenty of Youtube channels, that joke about and/or make light of murder in all sorts of ways, but the number of people who follow those things and go out to kill people is probably very limited.

I understand that pewdiepie isn’t for everyone, he’s just a guy like everyone else. I support do support him though, because his humour helps people in little ways. I am a victim of rape and sexual abuse, but the humour is what helps me not fall to depression. It’s my way of dealing with my problems, but i get that it’s not a way for everyone to cope with it, but it’s my way.

PewDiePie simply reacts to his games, like if a normal average human being where to react to someone scaring them. Felix has tried to stop his comments that offend most people but it isn’t a serious offense. He jokes sarcastically and makes fun of people who hate him for it. Felix’s work is not completely separate from his videos but this makes Humble Weekly Post is completely biased, PewDiePie doesn’t mean to offend, he simply has tried to not react so creatively offensive.

I see no negative in that. Not a fan of him in general but his campaign raised a ton of money and probably will/has helped many people. Do not understand this article, despite the mildly immature and offensive jokes (which he apologized for) he has actually contributed to the benefit of society. Can you say the same?

You can’t nitpick humor; either everything is okay, or nothing is okay. Sure, rape is a very serious thing, but so was 9/11 and the Holocaust, and people make numerous jokes about both of those events all of the time (depending where you are located – physically or virtually – of course). As well, the point of humor isn’t always to ridicule and mock; it can be used as a tool to take exceedingly depressing situations and help lift the spirits of others that are involved.

If you get offended at things that are not directed at you, you’re an idiot just looking for reasons to be angry. The fact is you probably love to hate, so you look for things that you don’t like so you can talk about it.

Remember, folks; Making controversial jokes makes you a bad, evil, irredemable person, even if you realize you screwed up, apologized for making those jokes in the first place and stopped making them for good, which would indicate that you learned from your past mistakes and you tried to rectify them (which he did, over 2 years ago), but since you made said mistakes in the first place, you’re bad and will always be bad.

I don’t think Pewdie really realizes his influence over the young generation, and he was just trying to be funny or likewise.
