Top Ten Most Controversial YouTubers

We all have at least witnessed one youtuber having dramas or being very hated but which one has it the most?

The Top Ten

1 Onision Onision Gregory Daniel Jackson, known by his YouTube username Onision, is an American YouTuber and Internet personality.

A pedophile, through and through.

The most controversial YouTuber ever. - JazzaM

Insane and sociopathic. The sad thing is he's so popular.

I would like to say now I love Brandon rogers like he is super entertaining but why isn't he on this list? Just wondering

2 Sam Pepper Sam Pepper

Sexual abuser - JazzaM

Serial rapist. So don't tune Into his channel - TheAwesomeDude54

Women are not objects

Enough said, he posted that controversial video about sexual harassment and killing his best friend just for pranks. Well I recently saw his killing prank. I honestly find it to be passable because no one died in the video but some people accuse it for being a more ISIS-styled execution which is bad enough. - Neonco31

3 Pewdiepie Pewdiepie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (born October 24, 1989), better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian video producer, and commentary channel. He is best known for his Let's Play commentaries and Vlogs on YouTube. He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website, more.

He is not a racist, why is he even on this list?

When Pewdiepie, a comedic gamer who jokes about mildly edgy stuff, is higher than Logan Paul, who literally showed a dead guy on his videos, I question humanity greatly. - BungleBoy69

Casual racist

He is a casual racist

He is not racist. He has made slightly racist controversial comments but he does not qualify to be a racist. He is a good guy. - 0w0uwu

4 Logan Paul Logan Paul Logan Alexander Paul is an American social media entertainer and actor. He first gained fame through videos shared on the internet video service Vine, in which the athletic Paul engages in physical comedy, including slapstick pratfalls and public splits.

Walked into the Japanese Suicide Forest and was surprised when he saw a corpse.

Literally showed a dead body - JazzaM

He belongs in hell. - QuizNikes

Idiot. Trashy,sexist, rude,disrespectful and plain annoying.

5 Brett Keane

He's a stallion - FromScytheToSceptre

Their a particular individual coming to this list situation, but remember not to attack his family - dimentioditto

Brett Keane! The Manatee himself. Particular Individual Situation.

He is the butt king and the king of failed deceit

6 Rucka Rucka Ali

Lots of racism - JazzaM

He feels as if he can do whatever because he's white (he's white).

People are so sensitive and get offended easily. He shouldn't be here, but he has to be.

Offensive to every religious group.

7 Skydoesminecraft

Not really sure how he's controversial. Explain? - Flamesofsilver

He isn't, people just hate him and don't know the difference between the words controversial and crappy. - PokemonCameron25

For ruining the Minecraft fanbase.

For making little kids say "budder".


8 TheAmazingAtheist

I’m an atheist and I think he just makes all atheists look bad :(

He has pissed of so many people so that's why he is here! - micdanchris

He tries to piss off everyone he can for the views and is just a douche bag. Saddest part is he makes a metric ton of money being an ass

And don't even get me started with his stupid fans!

9 IrateGamer

He's on here because of plagirism.

10 HowtoBasic HowtoBasic

How To Make A Vegan Pizza: Throw meat and eggs at the pizza. He's no help at all.

This guy is just gross. I really don't get why people would watch this all the way though.

And if this is the controversial YouTubers list then mediocrefilms should be on here. He is known for his retarded policeman skits which are offensive.

I thought it was an informational channel about doing things... But it's just videos on how to have sex and masturbate - simpsondude

Throwing food is the high ranking entertainment of 2014? ARE YOU SERIOUS?! Hate this channel.


The Contenders

11 TVFilthyFrank

He is supposed to be regarded that's the joke lmao.

How is he not in the top 10. I love Filthy Frank but he makes like the dirtiest jokes and he jokes about something quite serious and somehow make them funny like Cancer jokes for example. Frank is racist as well. He has a bunch of retarded characters like Pink guy (My favourite character out of all), salamander man, safari man, chin chin, red dick, dade and more. This channel is hilarious though. Still messed up. Very inappropriate.

He jokes about suicide and cancer which is not something to joke about

His dark/offensive humor is the best.

12 LeafyIsHere LeafyIsHere

The king of criticism, in a bad way. - JazzaM

He's not relevant anymore, He is most likely never coming back - B1ueNew

He's playing a character that's a total dick. I've heard he's a nice dude in real life, but his online personality isn't going to give him brownie points in the saint hall of fame anytime soon.

Why is James Rolfe's character higher than this bastard? Leafy should be way higher. - Gehenna

13 Verlisify

Why is he here? Jaiden Animations deserves to be on this list.

He the one who sparks controversies in the Pokemon community. - Senbo

14 BajanCanadian

How is he controversial? He is a good guy...
He is funny...

That whole thing with Team Crafted and setosorcerer I would guess

Oh this guy? He had a decent, lobrow channel called ASF that was hilarious, then met Sky, destroyed Team Crafted, and now does the same, lazy most of the time. - SwagFlicks

15 PMSRants

I really like him, but I can't stand what he said about smosh. Like, he said that they always play it safe which is a partial sin at comedy. Who the hell cares! I would laugh at any type of comedy no matter what type it was. But if it was comedy that had really crossed the line, then I would get pissed off (not trying to sound like a hypocrite, but there's a difference between a horrible, tasteless joke and a little harmless offensive humor).

Phil mason is rational. He can take criticisms. He will agree with your opinion on things.

He's ok, but I don't think he has enough reason in his Worst (Blank) too tens. He even said that Nicki Minaj should kill herself, and I am personally not a fan of her, but it goes way toO FAR! I don't see why people are commenting why he said he didn't like Smosh. He mentioned that they actually do a good job of what they do, but they're getting a bit old.

He is allowed to have an opinion so the person with the top comment says that he can't hate smosh

16 NateTalksToYou

I know that he's a good guy - SuperHyperman

How is he controversial?!?

Nate the retarded could go back home and cry like a baby in his little crib and just accept the fact that he's controversial - JaysTop10List

17 Jake Paul Jake Paul Jake Joseph Paul is an American actor and YouTube personality who rose to internet fame on the now-defunct video application Vine. Paul is known for playing the role of Dirk on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark.

As bad as his brother.

Quite a few things - JazzaM

I love you Jake

Very abusive towards women!

18 Jerome

How is jerome controversial?

19 HoodlumScrafty

His opinions and reasons are so mediocre.

20 McJuggernuggets McJuggernuggets

Not all of his videos are actually real just like CNN. You have to be careful on what you look at what you're watching. Some of these facts may be true or not. Even you could get tricked into believing these lies.

Most people criticize this guy calling his "psycho family" videos fake. Which I can agree with that. - Mumbizz01

The videos were later revealed to be a part of a series. so yes, they were faked/scripted. A lot of his videos are polarising as well. - theinudemon

21 Idubbbz

Awesome guy

He is racist scum, because he made fun of Asian eyes. Idubbbz will move to vimeo.

IDubbbz is gay and he had a crippling depression.

Idubbbz says and does whatever he pleases

22 ReviewTechUSA

I like him, but he creates too much controversy

He is a hypocrite to the max putting even The Archfiend to shame!

23 Daddyofive Daddyofive

Child abuser - JazzaM

He doesn't even have a channel anymore and he can't make another one

Abused his kids - B1ueNew

24 Angry Video Game Nerd Angry Video Game Nerd James Duncan Rolfe is an American actor, comedian, filmmaker, film and video game critic, and internet personality, best known for starring in the web television series The Angry Video Game Nerd, a joint production of Rolfe's Cinemassacre Productions, GameTrailers, and ScrewAttack.

Huh? But avgn isn't a real person. He is a character created just to make some laughs.

Why is he here?

AVGN is not that bad, he's a character.


25 Joshscorcher

I used to edit for him back when I was a fan. It was the worst experience, especially since he acts incredibly hypocritical. Ever since he jumped onto the brony bandwagon, he's become progressively worse. He claims he's a christian, but doesn't act like one in real life. - ValkyrStudios

His statements are insensitive and full of microaggresions. He has a intolerant ego like he thinks his intelligence is superior than others.

26 SSSniperwolf SSSniperwolf

She's not an amazing YouTuber. She's horrible, because she committed crimes. For example, she was arrested for armed robbery.

Amazing youtuber

27 The Mysterious Mr. Enter

Literally thinks it's okay to use racist slurs because he doesn't find it offensive.

He steals content from people.

Even his username doesn't make any sense! Why does he even call himself "The Mysterious Mr. Enter"?

His opinions are quite harsh and aggressive.

28 The Vigilant Christian

Wait so is this just the pure opposite of the Amazing Atheist?

The dude managed to get Marilyn's attention! Not to mention lying to hundreds of people basically telling them that anything is satanic! - micdanchris

This dude is mentally insane or just really stupid. He calls metal/rock bands satanic, and says that all who are not Christians are blind. - ryanrimmel

Oh, and he has fans and so many butt buddies to begin with.

29 Drama Alert

I personally do not like this guy because of all the racial slurs he uses and how he makes up drama for his own popularity. Not cool man - Jonerman

30 DarkMatter2525 DarkMatter2525 DarkMatter2525 is an atheist YouTuber who is known for making animations that mainly poke fun at fundamentalist religious views.

While his ideas may be burnt at the stake by pretty much the whole Christian community there are still very good arguments this youtuber has made. He exploits all of Christianity's biggest flaws and weaknesses and does it very convincingly all at the same time. My favorite points made by him are the theory that if God existed wouldn't he have to be made by another God and if God's plan is ultimately good then why is murder considered bad. But it is because of his challenge to Christianity that he got so controversial. Just like when Galileo proved we revolve around the sun.

It is one of the best atheist channels. The man proves that religion lacks logic. Me being quite a religious person was impressed with the way of putting his views which are thought provoking.

He's still awesome though.

Because he is an atheist, which means people who doesn’t believe in God, and that animation can prove it, We also thought that this animation is biblical, so it doesn’t have any profanities, and if you want to learn more about God, or believe in God, DON’T watch this animation. That’s why this channel is controversial, and I HATE THIS CHANNEL!

31 thunderf00t

His disgustingly misogynistic ideas only help to enable and condone the Sam Peppers of the world

32 Jefreestar

I love him and how honest he is, but being honest does get him into some drama.

He's one of the best. All I have to say is watch the shane dawson series of shane and Jeffrey this will open your mind and change your perception

He's racist and I find him creepy. He does is makeup super well though

33 Phantom Strider

I had to put him on the list because his top lists about cartoons have caused flame wars.

PhantomStrider had every right to put Paper Mario: Sticker Star on the list of top 6 worst Mario games anyways, but no, the prohibition for PhantomStrider to keep Super Mario Sunshine (which we both like but don't love as much as modernists demand us to), Paper Mario: Sticker Star and etc is too much and immaturely butthurt. Why do these people get the credit instead of the people that can take different opinions?!

He’s my favorite YouTuber, if you don’t like him. You’re insane

I have to admit, PhantomStrider8 loves being an entertainer; trying to express his opinion on cartoons to make people happy. But why is he on the list you ask?
Sadly, his top videos about cartoons have caused flame wars. Cartoon fans who reply with butthurt comments as they take their obsessions to seriously. He is one of those people who defined the quote well, "To be popular, one must be a mediocrity."
I'm not saying he's bad or mediocre. He just needs to be careful on there.
And that's what you get for being popular!

34 James Charles James Charles

I find him really creepy but he is good at makeup

35 Vegan Gains

Saying someone with cancer is going to get what the deserve unironically because they are not vegan is pretty bad... - JazzaM

Just full of crap.

Vegans are scary

36 InfoWars InfoWars

Alt-right news sight run by Alex Jones. - JazzaM

37 Lil Tay Lil Tay

I don't know. She brags about everything she has and is so spoiled. She's also very racist, too. There's not much to say about her and her personality but that.

She's very spoiled, controversial and uses a lot of racial slur. She's just as worse as Woah Vicky.

38 Nicole Arbour Nicole Arbour Nicole Arbour is a Canadian actress, choreographer, comedian, dancer, singer, and YouTube personality. She is known for the video "Dear Fat People"

Thinks fat people are terrible, and many other controversial opinions - JazzaM

She's disgusting - Senbo

She has been enrolled in the canadian neo-Nazi organization. it has been confirmed.

39 Fine Brothers Entertainment

Really? Wanting to trademark a word is ridiculous and they realised it and suspended the program but, do they expect everyone to act like it never happened? That they basically claimed they own the right to reaction videos? Like, no

No one can say they own a YouTube genre

They should kill themselves

Obviously they own the word "react".

40 JaclynGlenn

Very Aggressive sounding

41 Fouseytube
42 Tommy Sotomayor

My fave youtuber hands down

He is a cool user. They call him Mr. Controversy. He speaks a lot of truth. - TopTensFan

43 Phantomstrider8

I do have to admit, Phantomstrider8 loves being an entertainer, trying to share his opinions to make people happy. But why I had to put him on the list?
His videos have caused immature flame wars, coming from obsessive cartoon fans who can't respect opinions and take things too seriously. They need to take it easy!

47 Milo Stewart
