Top 10 YouTubers that Copy/Rip Off Others

YouTube used to be original back in the days, but now a number of creators are apparently copying/ripping off each other. It’s said creators should make individual content instead of copying/ripping off others. Now some make content that’s in relation to the others when they’re close friends or when making tributes to them, but straight up copying especially when not friends with others & without their permission or behalf is unnecessary. Plus copyright infringement is a real thing & an illegal problem. This includes channels that & still there & channels that were terminated by YouTube for copyright infringement. It’s a community list as more YouTube copycats are soon to be added on the list.
The Top Ten
Calon Sarjana (The Majority of YouTubers including Gamers & Music Artists)

He was known for posting gaming & music videos yet he copied many other creators content & did it without their permission. YouTubers should put individual content online but he kept copying nonstop. Music, games & even just general content from other creators, without gaining the rights. It’s such a shame YouTube isn’t original anymore as it mainly involves creators copying 1 another. Yet many of Calon’s videos included 3rd party content & he used it illegally. Over the years he was on YouTube he posted content that copied other creators & musicians along with companies nonstop. Thankfully YouTube finally terminated his channel. Yet it was the most subscribed YouTube channel that ever got terminated, at ~13M subscribers.

Lucas Cruikshank (A Variety of YouTubers Including Shane Dawson) Lucas Alan Cruikshank is an American actor and YouTube personality who created the character Fred Figglehorn and the associated Fred series for his channel on the video-sharing website YouTube in late 2005. These videos are centered on Fred Figglehorn, a fictional six-year-old who has a dysfunctional ...read more.

He used to do Fred Figglehorn, but now he’s pretty much copying a variety of YouTubers including makeup YouTubers & YouTubers like Shane Dawson (as he was before doing the conspiracies & documentaries) as well as drama YouTubers. Yet he’s trying to get as many views as possible despite the fact that not doing Fred anymore prevents him from gaining subscribers & views at the rate he’s trying. If he still did Fred he would’ve gained subscribers FAR faster than he’s already gaining (his channel only has ~3.2M subs in the last 11+ years). I checked his channel for a bit after researching about what happened to Fred & saw he was ripping off numerous others desperately for views. Glad I didn’t subscribe to his current channel. Many people thought Fred was annoying, but he was much more original & made way more sense than he is & does now.

Hannah Stocking (David Dobrik, Zane Hijazi, Heath Hussar, Scotty Sire & Tana Mongeau)

She was a sketch comedian (that I once subscribed to) with a full variety of skits that had their own storyline & humor. Each idea was unique & 1 of a kind and enough to get many including me hooked & waiting for the next video. But then between August & September 2020, after revealing she’s dating Ondreaz Lopez, she went on to weekly vlogging & not only is she making vlogs, she’s making vlogs that apparently rip off those from David Dobrik, Zane Hijazi. Heath Hussar, Scotty Sire & Tana Mongeau. The humor along with the style, cinematography & ideas are practically the same as theirs nowadays. They even gave each other tattoos like Zane & Heath did. The biggest difference in her vlogs is that she doesn’t do these huge giveaways like David Dobrik does, but coming anywhere close to copying (especially without the other person’s permission) is a big problem. Yet Ondreaz’s a member of the Lopez Brothers (including Tony Lopez - who has a history of racism & sexual predatory ...more

Morgz (Mr. Beast)

His content’s apparently a carbon copy of Mr. Beast’s & that’s straight up wrong to do. Not only that, it was reported that & he & Mr. Beast got in a feud over the content they’re posting. The truth is Mr. Beast should be Mr. Beast & Morgz should have his own individual content, but instead he copied Mr. Beast. You know copyright infringement’s not only associated with copyrighted music, but think about overall content. Which means in that case Morgz straight-up infringed Mr. Beast’s copyright & that’s against the community & copyright guidelines. Yet he did all that to gain more subscribers, proving how greedy he is. I still can’t believe he gained over 11.4M subscribers & isn’t terminated by YouTube for his copyright infringement.

Yup, just terrible.

Alex Warren (David Dobrik)

He was believed to apparently copy David Dobrik including the humor, cinematography & even trying to laugh like him. Though he seems to try too hard to laugh & messes up. We know David Dobrik influences a lot of YouTubers & was at the time 1 of a kind & Alex admitted he didn’t copy him, but it’s apparently true when one’s not posting original content. Now it’s not right to rip off or even come close to ripping off other YouTubers.

FazeRug (Mr. Beast)

His channel’s another rip off of Mr. Beast‘s in the humor, plots, segments & even the shoutouts.

MindOfRez (Mr. Beast)

He’s another one who copies Mr. Beast & makes unoriginal humor & greedy giveaways. He doesn’t have Mr. Beast’s permission or behalf for that & isn’t friends with him nor making tributes to him. Another rip off guy.

So a lot of Mr Beast ripoffs.

Tana Mongeau (Emma Chamberain)

The founder of the Fyre Festival of fan conventions (TanaCon), Tana Mongeau’s been making videos with the same editing style as Emma Chamberlain’s. Yet she wasn’t always like that & she doesn’t have her permission to make it like that. What a rip off.

Antonio Garza (Emma Chamberlain)

She’s another Emma Chamberlain copycat. It’s 1 thing when she influenced a lot of other YouTubers with his editing style, but it’s another thing when straight up ripping her off especially without her permission.

The Dobre Twins (The Dolan Twins)

Their content is just like the Dolan Twins. The cinematography & humor’s much that. Lucas & Marcus Dobre go on adventures the same way the Dolan Twins go on adventures though unlike the Grayson & Ethan Dolan, they made trap songs like the Paul brothers such as Jake & Logan Paul did & the Dobre Twins haven’t lost a parent like the Dolan Twins did in 2019 (Sean Dolan, who passed away after a ~2.5 year battle with cancer at 50 leading to the world’s saddest original YouTube documentary). He didn’t have permission from the Dolan Twins to post content like theirs, proving how unoriginal they really are (no hate or criticism to you fans).

The Contenders
Patrick Starrr (Jeffree Star)

She’s a makeup artist with Star as the last name. Star or Starrr, it’s not right to rip off or even come close to ripping off others.

PewDiePie (jacksepticeye) 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, ...read more.

1 time PewDiePie created a channel called Jacksepticeye2 & it was an attempt to get millions of more subscribers including those in 1 day. It got 616,323 subscribers in its 1st 24 hours. Yet he talked about deleting it & eventually he did it in 2016. He totally used Jack’s name on the channel & it was about gaming as well.

Mr. Beast (Cuz Viets)

In 1 video, he apparently copied because Viets when going to a Dinosaur-themed park.
