Top Ten YouTube Scandals

YouTube is a very big place to go on, but many people are taking the wrong path and becoming horrible people, causing problems.

Some were even reported and got into trouble, and took scandalous paths, causing scandals for YouTube.

Here's a list of the idiots or scandals of YouTube.

The Top Ten

1 TheFineBros (Internet Crash)

TheFineBros were once the most popular group on YouTube, but then in 2016, their decided to trademark "React" and then they were at war with the internet, they lost so many viewers and subscribers, and they were even accused of copyright in his videos and then their react videos were no more. - nelsonerica

I think people were misinterpreting their mission here - they were only trying to trademark their "format" (which is still a stupid idea on the internet) - but I can't believe they didn't run the idea through a focus group or something. The hoopla was quita entertaining, at least. Especially that live subscriber count! - keycha1n

Haha this is like that time when King Digital tried to trademark the words "Candy" and "Saga". People can be so stupid sometimes. - Mcgillacuddy

I'm pretty disappointed. I loved TheFineBros and REACT. I still do, but I'm ticked at how they would sue someone for having their own reacting video...

2 Sam Pepper ("Killing Best Friend Prank" Video)

The fact that people overreacted on his pranks is proof how hypersensitive people are nowadays.

We will NEVER EVER forget his choices, he tried to kill people for his social experiments.

He has NO talent, he attacked so many people, and he was doing it for his "SOCIAL EXPERIMENTS"! He needs to die in a fire.

First of all, can someone tell me why Sam Pepper tried to kill his best friend in a so-called "social experiment"?
Second -- hold up, well, you know the other part.

3 PewDiePie (Suicidal Videos)

It's sarcasm idiot. His viewers know it. He was just poking fun at all of the death rumours that surround him all the time. It's not even close to "suicidal"!

His games were crazy, and he kept yelling at people, but the main thing is that he made videos of him attempting to kill himself, look at "PewDiePie is Dead", that just shows you what's happening. - nelsonerica

Also Death Rumors. - nelsonerica

He isn't having suicidal thoughts!
Unrelated note: In the video "Pewdiepie is Dead", Pewdiepie sees that he's number 1 on the worst YouTubers list - Martinglez

4 Nicole Arbour (Dear Fat People) Nicole Arbour (Dear Fat People)

No, this isn't funny. This is ridiculous. Ignite this awful video so Nicole won't get any recognition anymore. - Elric-san

I will DESTROY this video somehow, and then burn Nicole's ugly body to bits. I am overweight, and this video offended me completely. - Catacorn

I wanna take Madoka's bow and smash it through Nicole Arbour and her dumb channel - TwilightKitsune

Nicole Arbour is basically what you get when you give Kim Kardashian her own YouTube channel and turn up her narcissism level to the max. I hate both of those attention w***es. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Lucas Cruikshank (Selling FRED Channel + Sex Addiction)

The Fred guy, Lucas Cruikshank, was once a mega hit on YouTube, being the first to get a million views and subscribers, guest star on T.V. shows, make movies and a T.V. show, he was the first to do all of that, he made an original character that annoyed lots of us, but at least it was original quality, and the lines were very unique.

But then in late 2013, he made a sexual revelation, and ever since that, he's gone crazy, and the next year, he was planning on going to Korea to save Fred from that new kid, as a way to bring Fred back to YouTube, but then he sold his FRED channel as a way to make more money, and now on his personal channel, which doesn't get a lot of views, he just shows off his body parts and talks about them for attention and views, yet he, like many other YouTubers these days, shares only the worst parts of his personal life to others, it's been known that he even watches porn on a daily basis, therefore, he's been suffering from sex addiction, yet one time, ...more - nelsonerica

YouTube used to be about fun and entertainment, but now it's about sex and money, people like to show off their areas and talk about boyfriends for more views and money, even he's taken that path.

He changed his humor too much, it just shows you that YouTube is falling into a dump.

First, he came out of the closet as gay, then next, he used language, then later, he and Jennifer Veal were nude in one video (though censor blocks were added), later, he made videos in his bathtub. and later, he sold his Fred channel for money, What an idiot.

6 Toby Turner (Drug and Sexual Addiction)

I think he's innocent of sexual assault and drug addiction, but I'm not too sure about him not cheating. - SwagFlicks

They're just trying to get Toby's money. - RalphBob

7 Anime America Podcast (Clannad Cyberbullying Incident)

Black Critic Guy seems to be an underrated anime reviewer YouTube channel. I like Black Critic Guy more than Anime America, because he respects opinions, isn't harsh with his opinions, isn't a bully, AND IS ACTUALLY FUNNY AND KNOWS WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT AS HE SPEAKS. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Anime America Podcast is a YouTube anime channel infamous for the amount of bullying and death threats it throws at its viewers, just because they don't have the same opinions as they do! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I. Hate. This. Channel. They always think they know what they are talking about, and they are so mean spirited about Clannad. So what if someone likes it? It's their opinion. There's no reason for you to abuse someone for having a different opinion than you. - Elric-san

Can some please explain the drama to me? even in the dms because I can't find this drama existing nor has it occured - YourWaifuSucks

8 Nicole Arbour (Matthew Santoro Abuse) Nicole Arbour (Matthew Santoro Abuse)

She's on here twice. Shows how great of a person she is (not). - SevenTreeTool

9 Onision (Cheating Wife Scandal)
10 Logan Paul (Exploiting Dead Body On Tape)

I think the problem overall is how the United States would start to be represented by other countries via YouTube after this incident. In addition, I'm surprised Logan Paul actually traveled to one of the most infamous places in Japan. I do blame his crew for not taking precautions or even trying to determine any sort of consequence entering the Suicide Forest, let alone capturing a dead body on tape). Lastly, I am afraid of what the newest generation could turn out, considering the video actually has more likes than dislikes. - CrimsonShark

Incredibly disrespectful towards the person, as well as his family. I find it hard to believe people actually can defend this. Plus, Logan went off trail, which I'm pretty sure is restricted. - naFrovivuS

Horrible Person - JPK

The Contenders

11 Matthew Lush (Airline Threat)

Wow, I had no idea about this. Crazy! O.O - SoapSoup

He was originally awful as being a gay psychopath, and his videos were awfully sexual and pornographic.
But then after an online glitch accidentally booked him a return ticket to JetBlue, he contacted customer service to get a refund, he contacted a reporter named Regina, he decided to play up the Mean Girls memes using her name and cursomer reference number, tweeting "One time Regina treated @MatthewLush badly, I punched her in the face, it was awesome #ByeRegina87346," and others.

When Lush entered the Terminal, he was denied access to the fight and was flagged a security threat to the airline.

After being removed and flying home on another carrier, Lush took to YouTube and encouraged his 580,000 followers to boycott the airline until he was allowed on flights.

For JetBlue’s part, they stand by their ban, saying in a statement, “The decision to remove any customer from a flight is made after careful and informed decision by local airport officials and ...more - nelsonerica

12 DaddyOFive (Abuse)

He should just go to jail

13 SofloAntonio (Freebooting & Copyright Infringement)

This guy's channel needs to be removed from YouTube. All he does is freeboot stolen content, credits them to a false page, and recycles these videos for future use. - MKBeast

14 NigaHiga (Humor Flip)

Alright, this isn't even a scandal. This is just an opinion. Nigahiga's humor did not flip, it's just evolving into something more broad. He still makes puns, still surprises us, but the increase in quality and effort he puts in his videos is evident. I don't know why this is on the list in the first place, but most people can agree that this isn't a 'scandal' others are talking about.

And that's why he's lower than the middle of the list, I know he's still doing what he originally does, but when people change a certain way, it's usually for the worse. - nelsonerica

He has just matured a little bit. It's the age factor. With more experiences, comes more maturity. It's not bad at all. And definitely not a scandal.

Maturity is about handling whatever happens and not getting all whiny about it, many people misinterpret the definition of maturity, they say it means inappropriate, when it actually means handling things like a humble gentleman. - nelsonerica

What? Changing up your humor by the slightest is a scandal? Are people not aware that YouTubers mature? - isaaonrtdmtr

I've watched plenty of nigahiga, and I can say he hasn't really changed a bit. Not even physically. His videos are more high quality, that's all. - naFrovivuS

15 Keemstar aka Drama Alert (John Phillips and Tony)

Basically, Keemstar (host) made a story on a pedophile called John Phillips, who met a girl on Runescape and he is now streaming. However, the streamer was actually a man named Tony, while John was still in prison. He started to cry due to the amount of death threats. Keemstar immediately made an apology video, which has over 100k dislikes.

16 Leafyishere VS h3h3 (Autistic man death threats)
17 CSGO Lotto (Scam, Conflict of Interest)

In July 2016, it was revealed that ProSyndicate and TmarTn, who made CSGO skin-gambling videos using a website called CSGO Lotto, owned the website and didn't disclose it. With their gambling videos potentially targeting children and the possibility that their winnings could have been falsified, they were called out by, among others, HonorTheCall, h3h3 Productions and Totalbiscuit. After failed attempts at damage control, the offending channels' owners were added into a class-action lawsuit against Valve for knowingly allowing an illegal online gambling market.

18 Lisa Schwartz (Personality Flip)

Let's not forget she also evolved into a sex addict like many YouTubers nowadays.

She was once a gaming person, which made her an original, but then she turned upside down by overdoing DIY videos and not games, she yells at her fans like PewDiePie does, and she steals Shane's work, which many others are also doing nowadays.
The main part of her being here is that she lies to her fans about her videos being "collabs" when they're really just her being by herself. - nelsonerica

She really has changed into one of those idiots, and this was mainly ever since she broke up with Shane from her collabs, and they aren't even true collabs anymore.

19 Jinx (Accused of stealing content)

A guy that steals content and "reacts" to the video poorly. A good reaction videos is where after watching the video, you debate and discuss about the thing, share your thoughts. A bad way to react is to upload the entire video with your face in the corner - YourWaifuSucks

20 Jimmy Kindell (Serial Hoax)

This again is barely even a scandal. - naFrovivuS

Many people who watched the Sochi Winter Olympics were full of amusement, but then Jimmy Kindell made videos that seemed too good to be true, and somehow he did a twerking fail video, and he tricked us.
He was reported as a "serial hoaxer", a Daily Dot tech editor, Molly McHugh, wrote a message saying As Daily Dot tech editor Molly McHugh wrote back in February, “What [Kimmel is] doing is endangering any sense of wonder there is left in the Internet. We’re all so critical, so skeptical of anything even moderately fantastical we find online. We’ve been conditioned to call hoax before letting ourselves laugh or gasp or stare at something amazing.” - nelsonerica
