Was it acceptable PewDiePie used the word "nigger" in a fit of anger?

Asked by: Debating_Horse
  • Was it nice? No. Was it a big deal? No.

    Thing is, the N word is not a nice word, but it is just a word. People are (or should be) free to express themselves however they feel. The meaning of words change over time, it's a part of human nature. Words that were once offensive are no longer offensive, and words that weren't offensive are now offensive. The word "fool" used to be a much more offensive word than it is today. Conversely, the word "retard" used to be considered the normal term for the disabled, and now people see it as offensive. The N word was once a word used to hurt people of color, but now it has been adopted and even embraced by most of those people. The word doesn't carry the same meaning that it once did, and what matters is context. Did PewDiePie use the word in an attempt to offend and hurt someone of color? If so, then it's a different story. People need to stop trying to control what others say. It wasn't a nice word to use, but I don't think he was trying to be nice at the time. This does not mean that PewDiePie is a racist, it just means that he used a crass word in a moment of anger.

  • No way it was

    Of course not. He himself said it was not acceptable. This topic is stupid. Q q q q qq q qq qq q q q q q qq q q q q qq q q q q q qq q qq q q q qq q qq q qqq q

  • No. He was not right using that word.

    If an person is angry, it would be appropriate to swear, but PewDiePie shouldn't have used a racial slur to express his anger. You can use all other kinds of swear words, but even when playing multiplayer games, you should be respectful to others and should refrain from using that type of language.
