As you may be aware, PewDiePie recently posted a video in which he tried out services on Fiverr; a website where people provide services for – you guessed it – a fiver. And one of the services he tried out was from a pair of guys who would make a bespoke video; in which they would dance and then produce a message of the user’s choosing.
So PewDiePie controversially chose the phrase “Death To All Jews”; and was visibly stunned when the dancers used that message.
Of course, PewDiePie received a mixed reaction for the stunt. But the dancers faced a much heavier and more immediate consequence: They were banned from Fiverr.
The dancers have now uploaded an apology video.
They insist that they did not understand the true meaning of the message that they displayed; and judging by their seeming difficulty with English in the video, this is very easy to believe.
PewDiePie shared the video and personally called on Fiverr to unban the duo; stating that if anyone should be banned, it should be him and not them.
Reaction to the apology video has been varied, with some annoyed at Felix for getting the duo banned, to some thinking that the video was still funny. But for now, Fiverr have yet to offer any response to the dancers’ apology.
