Petition for the Wall Street Journal to fire Ben Fritz

This petition had 686 supporters


As you all know by now, the Wall Street Journal tried to ruin the career of the popular YouTuber PewDiePie by making the accusations that he is a fascist, Nazi supporter and anti-Semite, all of which are completely fabricated, ridiculous and unjustified statements. These lies published by the WSJ stemmed from a video that PewDiePie made which was taken completely out of context by news outlets, primarily the WSJ of which Ben Fritz is an employee. Ben Fritz is a journalist who currently works for the WSJ, and has made multiple anti-Semitic and racist posts using his own Twitter account, making him hypocritical of his actions to accuse Felix of being a fascist. The WSJ has now become a hypocritical media spectacle, and needs to take action against Ben Fritz. The WSJ should make a published apology to Felix Kjellberg for their slanderous accusations, and if they are really against fascism they should do the right thing and fire Ben Fritz. This petition fully supports (but does not represent) PewDiePie and fully supports the fight against fascism and racism, something a news media outlet as well known as the Wall Street Journal should also stand against. This petition is a demand to the WSJ to do what is right and respond with taking positive action against fascism, racism and hypocrisy within their company. Thank you for showing your support. And Felix - if you're reading this - just know that we all stand with you.
