The Wall Street Journal recently printed a hit-piece by Ben Fritz, slandering YouTube’s most popular creater, PewDiePie. Fritz did little work in trying understand the context of the jokes that were made, falsely attributed motives, and did not ask the creater himself for comment. This facilitated a media firestorm that led to the loss of sponsorships for the YouTube celebrity.
Instead of reading Ben Fritz’ body of work, asking for comment, or doing anything of journalistic substance or integrity myself, I’m just going to slander him, for the clicks. Becasue being outraged at a persons commedy that you don’t find funny means that you should do eveything in your power to ruin the livelyhood of that person.
So here are a few out-of context, tasteless jokes by WSJ writer and moral purist, Ben Fritz.
@Sk8j well obviously I’m not counting jokes about black people. Those are just funny
