If you don't know what happened yet, I recommend you watch these videos:

The original- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ji9KmXwrA5Y

The First Response- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZJHhM5uKlg

The Most Recent Response- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9oZplyzDKc

Discussing the first video: It was a joke. People took things way too seriously and the original joke doesn't justify the response. I thought the video was hilarious and gave it thumbs up on youtube (although 100k+ people would disagree with that choice). He may have said a couple things that weren't 100% accurate, but the point still stands that a joke like that (that isn't even regarding something that serious) shouldn't be taken seriously

Discussing the second video: He is totally justified in responding to the mean messages he got. There is no way to justify threatening someones life and people are lucky he took it in a joking manner instead of making it a serious issue. The people who insulted him in the first place dug a hole for themselves by insulting him, because (like the popular trend on YouTube) he will make fun of the mean comments to get more views and laughs. This is where is should have ended though because people should have learned that, just like on a youtubers channel, he's going to keep poking fun as long as there are people to make fun of.

Discussing the last video: He's kind of beating a dead horse here... to be honest I lost interest after this video and think it's just boring and uncreative. If he has another segment about this, he'll look desperate.... Since there were still jokes to be had, he had them and made a joke out of the gaming community YET AGAIN! If people would have left the original video alone, then the second 2 videos would have never happened, but since the internet has a big group of people who don't understand jokes or when to leave something alone, they became a thing.

What do you think? I discussed my thought and want to know what others think! :)
Don't let this get out of hand like in those videos though...

I think the gaming community got way too salty and they need some fries for it.

No comment on the videos themselves, however I do believe making that much money for just streaming someone play a video game is beyond retarded. Also I hate pewdiepie, he's not funny, he's a try hard ect.

I really don't... care about what Jimmy Kimmel says.

I do think watching people play games instead of playing games themselves are wasting their time. I personally can't stand any of those Youtube gamers who keep talking/shouting/trying to be funny/smartass.

I will admit, I watch Gackt na Game Game Senteru but I watch that because, come on, it's GACKT.

I like how he talks about watching people playing video games on youtube is boring. Yet he has a video posted on youtube and is boring as hell.
