On YouTube and Rumble, Steven Crowder makes repeated reference to a racial slur

Steven Crowder tells co-hosts, “You're my rigger ... I Jheri curled the riggers' word”

On August 17, Crowder, who has repeatedly been suspended on YouTube, began his livestreams on both YouTube and Rumble simultaneously and then continued his stream exclusively on Rumble, where he used additional slurs and complained that YouTube won't let him broadcast them.

STEVEN CROWDER (HOST): Now, the term is riggers, to be clear. That's what people are upset about, saying that it's a racist dog whistle. And in the spirit of full disclosure, to be fair, there have been instances where that term has been used for a while and contextually to make a point.


You're my rigger.

BRYAN CALLEN (GUEST): That's not your word.

CROWDER: Yeah, that's right. Well, you know, I just made it my word. I jerry-rigged it.

CALLEN: Wow. So full of -- so dominant.

CROWDER: I Jheri curled the riggers' word.
