PewDiePie responded to criticisms that he was doing nothing to stop his most extreme fans by saying that he didn't have to, because it's "obvious" that he doesn't condone anything awful or illegal. But the people doing this are likely very young, as he himself points out, so no, this isn't "obvious" to them. It's like how when he parrots fascist memes or straight up recommends a Nazi channel, it isn't obvious to them that they're being exposed to propaganda. (Said channel gained 15,000 subscribers before he retracted the endorsement.) Anyway, while all this was going on, T-Series quietly passed PewDiePie, and their fans didn't even have to deface one monument. How did they do it?!
