Seriously, I don’t and I’m one of them. Some are just….I don’t know….idiotic? Childish? Naive? Blind? It’s not about them spamming comment sections, screaming how Pewds is the best. Other fandoms are also guilty of that. It’s about how they know nothing about him.
They think Pewdiepie and Felix Kjellberg are one person. They aren’t. Pay attention to his videos. You will see two different people. Entertainers have public personas to be more entertaining. Even Felix said that in his podcast. It’s a common knowledge! Disbelieving that is delusional.
They also hate the new Pewdiepie because he edits too much, stops playing games, tries too hard to be edgy and becomes money-grubbing and inconsiderate. The old Pewdiepie isn’t guilty of those, they say. Well, let’s dissect them individually. I am referring to Pewds’ negative traits, not the bros (even though I want to dissect the brains of airheads).
First of all, he still plays games, albeit less. He has said countless times about wanting variation. It is either you are absent-minded (you need the doctor) or you are a shamelessly dull creature (you need to change). Oh and he plays games because he wants to. Give him suggestions, not coercion.
Yes, it is true he edits too much. It can be overwhelming to watch, especially when one loves transquility. But, people think it proves how he stops working hard. In what dumbass universe does that make any sense? More editing literally means spending more time on your videos! All you need is a brain to get that.
The old Pewds used offensive words just because he could. The new Pewdiepie uses them much less. In fact, he has become a satirist; his commentaries smack us to reality. And yet, new Pewds is the try-hard one. It’s like thinking how pop is more cultured than Jazz. Even Pewds himself thinks his old self was a try-hard.
There’s no evidence that the new Pewds is greedy. Not one. He does have ads in his videos. But, so do other Youtubers. In fact, he always disclose his sponsors. Also, his wealth is irrelevant. It has nothing to do with his greed or the lack of it (click here to watch Let’s talk about money).
The old Pewds always smiled, never scolded his fans and granted their wishes. He seemed kinder then. But, that’s superficial. He put a sugary mask, hiding God-knows-what behind it. The new Pewds, on the other hand, is always outspoken. We know what he thinks and feels. I don’t know about you. But, I believe insincerity and honesty are obvious signs of human decency. We’re not being lied to.
I believe those horrid bros are a minority. The other bros I know are more dignified. Alas, the tiny yet raucous minority gets the attention. They’re the de facto representatives of the bro army. Of course, we can call out those primitive simpletons, forcing them to contemplate about their lack of sophistication, intelligence and integrity. But, I’m a cynic. No matter how much we try, I’m sure they’ll always be there, ruining it for everyone, like a colossal boil on a face. Call me self-righteous. But, at least, I’m decent enough to know my own flaws
