YouTube, we need to have a talk. It's been nearly two weeks since Felix Kjellberg -- better known as PewDiePie, the single most subscribed personality in YouTube's history -- was dropped by Disney's Maker Studios over jokes that were perceived as anti-semitic, following an investigation by the Wall Street Journal. To defend Kjellberg, a hashtag was deployed over the weekend to spin the narrative, created by Carl Benjamin -- AKA Sargon of Akkad.
