In one video — which is still live — Kjellberg paid two men to write "Death to all Jews" on a sign and dance beneath it. He reacted with apparent disbelief when they actually did it. A brief caption beneath reads, "Trying to hide a smile from triggered SJWs," which is short for "social justice warriors," Internet slang for liberal activists — who might complain about a sign saying "Death to all Jews." (_Update on Feb. 15: _The captions on the video were written by fans and owned by Kjellberg, under Youtube's policies.)

SHILF:

  • KEVIN: Kate Kane
