The Wall Street Journal: PewDiePie apologizes, says reaction to anti-Semitic videos overblown

Felix Kjellberg, the YouTube star known as PewDiePie, apologized for content in one of his videos but accused The Wall Street Journal and other media of taking other material out of context in scrutinizing his use of Nazi and anti-Semitic imagery and language.

In a video posted Thursday on YouTube, the 27-year-old Swede was responding to a Journal story published Monday that pointed to nine videos he has made since August that included anti-Semitic jokes or Nazi imagery. The Journal reported that Walt Disney Co. DISN, +0.55% severed business ties with him, and following the story, YouTube canceled Kjellberg’s show on its subscription service.
