Two wrongs don’t make a right.

On Thursday, PewDiePie came under fire after casually dropping the n-word in his newest YouTube upload. And, instead of apologizing for the controversial clip, the 27-year-old responded to the backlash by re-tweeting an offensive post that also contained the upsetting slur.

While critics were using #PewDiePieIsOverParty in their tweets, another white YouTuber, iDubbbz, took to Twitter to parody the backlash by recreating the trending hashtag.

However, the content creator — whose real name is Ian Carter — disgustingly replaced the word “over” with the words “a [n-word].”

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the Swedish internet celebrity actually showed his appreciation for iDubbbz’s tasteless post by retweeting it (below):
