But why should there be a risk?
It's newsworthy is PDP turned out to actually be a white supremist or somesuch, given his following. But that's clearly not the case here. This was simply "PDP did something tasteless, like so many of his videos", not even newsworthy.
But it's not about truth or what newsworthy, is it? It's about forwarding the narrative, and punishing the heretics. And only that.
