    I just like this thread for posting cool and funny videos, do we really need to be updated every time some racist dude on youtube puts his foot in his mouth again?

    Apparently even his own subreddit is labeling his apology as shit

    Right after the """"debate"""" his sub went ballistic with shitposting and jokes and shitting on Jon, it was hilarious. Unfortunately the mods deleted seemingly all of it, for a bit a post titled "Incredible JonTron Cosplay" and was just a picture of a burning dumpster was the 3rd highest voted submission in the sub's history. There's still some winners though:

    At least a lot of his fans seem to be taking him to task and either criticizing him or outright dumping him, so that's a positive.

    As they should

    No no, you have to double down on the stupidity and "ironic" racism, and claim the Wall Street Journal is trying to censor them, like PewDiePie's fans are doing.

    Outing racists IS cool, but the regular updates on what he did recently and sharing his videos seems less useful.

    It feels more like dragging us back into his cesspit over what should just be a general "this guy's not okay" warning. Same goes for Pewdie. Don't need to know why he's still awful.

    All I will add to the JonTron situation is that in my experience a Youtube video titled "My Statement" does not bode well. Now moving on.

    And JonTron continues to savor the many and varied flavors of his foot:
    “I said lots of stuff that could be misconstrued in all sorts of ways,” said Jafari, better known to his fans as JonTron. An alumnus of the let’s play group Game Grumps, the YouTuber has become better known for making comedy videos ever since he left the group in 2013.

    In an effort to clarify statements like “if they immigrate they need to integrate, but also we don’t need immigrants from incompatible places,” and “I don’t think a pure society is possible, but in terms of a demographic majority, I don’t know that a nation can exist without one,” the YouTuber tried to lay out his views in a more prepared and ordered manner, away from the “pressure” of his almost two hour debate on Bonnell’s stream.

    “I was trying to speak to the increasing tribalization of our culture,” said Jafari, and he believes the remarks brought up offhand late at night on a “random” Twitch stream viewed by tens of thousands of people didn’t accurately reflect this.



    Someone really needs to explain to him the first rule of finding yourself in a hole: STOP DIGGING.

    I feel an enormous amount of shame over once defending Jontron on this very forum. He's a bad person. Fuck him.

    End of line.

    Well, I heard he was originally going to call it "My Struggle" instead but his new friends suggested that was a bit on the nose.

    I don't think anyone is ignoring it here. We know he's a crazy racist already, but we don't need to hear every crazy racist thing he says. Ya don't need to regularly post InfoWars content for us to know it's full of crazy racist shit too.

    Youtube is all about Free speech for all (... straight white men)

    The hypocrisy is actually sickening.

    Seriously hope they see some immediate backlash for this. Maybe some high profile YouTube people should strike or something?

    This is usually how these stories go: They've set up a new filter and have not added any subtleties so the false positive rate is staggering. This is exacerbated by their poor communication

    It's dumb they do this, but I'm going to operate on the assumption they're not trying to censor gays unless proven otherwise

    I wonder if it's related to that "users are going to report/police our content" thing?

    I remember a whole bunch of popular youtubers were losing monetization because of a large number of bogus reports at first. Maybe semi related?

    My thoughts are more or less the same, but with the added clause that the responsible thing to do in this situation is to turn that shit back off immediately until they have it fixed.

    They should have done that as soon as they were aware of the problem.

    I don't think they'll address this at all unless pushback is strong enough

    They didn't add LGBT content to the filter because there was a staggering amount of NSFW video in that community, they did it because of the fucked up assumption that so much as the awareness that LGBT individuals exist is not "family friendly"

  • JedocJedoc That citation you've neededRegistered User regular
    Probably. I mean, we still get complaints at my library from customers who don't think And Tango Makes Three should be on the shelf in the kid's section, and it's not because they're afraid of explicit content in a picture book about penguins.

    And I'd bet that they came to that sort of "conclusion" courtesy of a targeted complaint campaign.

    The Youtube Creators twitter did post about it, only apologizing that it caused "confusion," with the insinuation that it is completely intentional

    one problem with that statement is that it's patently false, as shown by the above video of a person petting their cat with a hand-drawn pride flag and the word "gay" in the title being filtered

    they need to acknowledge that it's not working the way they claim it should, and turn it the hell off until it is

    just like, wait until some threshold of reports is met then have a content moderate go in and go "yes this is bad content"
