@vaartis ADL is the Anti-Defamation League, which has been for long a critic of Pewds. Apparently Pewds donated as a means of settlement, and 4chan & co aren't happy, claiming jews are blackmailing and extorting Felix

@efi basically he donated to the ADL (Anti Defamation League, which fights against hate and particularly antisemitism) $50k by suggestion of a sponsor, then lots of people complain about it (including the official Gab account on Twitter ofc) because they advocate for controlling hate speech, and now he apologizes for the donation

@espectalll so naxis and other right-wing jerkos fighting each other over a few pennies from an online idiot, gotcha

@efi now, ADL is controversial for many reasons, but this one in particular, while being promoted by 4chan people (as explained at reddit.com/r/PewdiepieSubmissi) and Gab, and that Felix just seems to agree without being explicit about it... well
