Jon ‘JonTron’ Jafari has always been known as a controversial YouTube star, often saying offensive AF things without so much as a second thought. People know this about him, so, for the most part, try their best to ignore his rants. Recently, however, the YouTube gamer went on a total tangent that proved too problematic to avoid. Here’s just a taste of what he said:

Since then, he’s been called a racist, white supremacist, bigot, etc., and finally felt the need to address these (understandable) concerns. Instead of apologizing for his words, however, The 27-year-old simply said he was “under a lot of pressure” and his tweets were “misconstrued in all sorts of ways.”

“The simple point I was trying to make is that it’s hypocritical for those who see everything in terms of race to suddenly turn around and object when white people speak up in what they believe are the best interests of their race,” he explained.

Jon admitted that “discrimination [against African Americans] certainly exists,” but he also thinks “it goes all ways,” meaning they’re not the only race that has been discriminated against.

If you’re looking for an apology, you’ll have to wait a little while longer — because he never, EVER said he was sorry for any of his hateful comments. Hear for yourself:

While JonTron doesn’t really care about offending so many people, video game company Playtonic decided to drop the YouTuber from the upcoming game, Yooka-Laylee.
