Yeah, maybe it was dumb, but comedians have to walk this tightrope all the time. Remember Colbert got slammed by the social justice warriors over the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever. Roseanne Barr called Israel a Nazi state. Frankie Boyle has made fun of Down syndrome. And on and on it goes. PewDiePie is comedy, and this skit was clearly comedy. Was it funny or in bad taste? Eye of the beholder. My opinion of YouTube went down a lot in cancelling his show, and I might have to cancel my YouTube Red subscription in retaliation.

It's not so much that someone predicted dark matter, and the observable universe backs up the theory. Rather the theory of gravity doesn't match the observable universe, so some scientists came up with a total fudge factor called dark matter to match up with what is observed. Bit of a difference, huh!

They're only forcing ATS on apps where it is appropriate. Like where the developer controls their own server. Obviously forcing ATS onto something like say, Chrome browser whose reason for being is to connect to random servers, isn't caught up in this. Apple aren't completely stupid, even though they can be bloody annoying at times.
