    Some of PewDiePie’s supporters appear to have defaced a World War II memorial with messages that urge people to subscribe to the YouTube star.

    The Brooklyn War Memorial in Cadman Plaza Park is the monument that’s been vandalized with “Subscribe to PewDiePie” messages. People first began bringing attention to the vandalized monument through posts like the one below that showed the same phrase written several times on the memorial. It appears as though the message was either scrawled on the wall with chalk or scratched in with a rock, so while the problem could potentially be fixed easily, it’s the act itself that’s upset people.

    excellent question trusteft....

    there are plenty of trolls that will intentionally try to blacken the eyes of people they dislike by pretending to be supporters and fans and doing clearly obvious horrible things in and effort to appear to support them, but by doing it in the worst possible ways possible.

    One of the biggest issues currently on the internet is the fact that there is a growing number of idiots that will do these things, and a near equal number of idiots that will place the blame on someone that would neither support these actions/condone them, but will still be asked to PAY for it, and they will inadvertently suffer for it no matter how completely illogical and unreasonable.
