free speech soldiers on - not - [PFFR] Verge: YouTube is also cutting its business relationship with YouTube's biggest star, PewDiePie
TRIGGER WARNING - the trigger warning is below.
Well, another very happy day for Lauren Weinstein who incidentally
escaped the gas chambers by thumping the guards as a 2yo, throwing his
teddy as a distraction, all whilst whipping his blankie ("blanket")
over the razor wire to facilitate his final "jump" solution.
So it's just as well that Nazi collarborator PewDiePie is being
justly served first de-monetization and now full de-association
All Praise, corporate protection for YOUR Freedom of Speech.
Thank you Google, we always knew you'd "Do no evil".

Verge: YouTube is also cutting its business relationship with YouTube's biggest star, PewDiePie
YouTube's biggest star, PewDiePie, has always flirted with
controversy. But his recent use of Nazi imagery and
anti-Semitic humor went too far for his corporate partners. On
Monday evening Disney announced it was severing ties with
PewDiePie, and now The Verge can report that YouTube is also
cutting its business relationship with its most famous face.
PewDiePie was set to release the second season of his original
series, Scare PewDiePie, a YouTube Red exclusive that the
video giant paid to produce. The release of that show has now
been cancelled, according to a YouTube spokesperson. PewDiePie
is also being removed from the Google Preferred advertising
program, which is reserved for its bigger and more marketable
creators. That will have a direct hit on PewDiePie's earnings,
as the Preferred program is home to brand advertising that
generates more revenue than typical YouTube advertising.

Thank you Google for taking some appropriate steps here. I would go further
and ban him from YouTube entirely, but then I don't run YT. Seriously though,
thanks for these actions.
