Gaming YouTuber Jon “MrDalekJD” Hutchinson has issued an apology after he stole a smaller YouTuber’s content for his own platform.

MrDalek, who has more than 2.4 million subscribers, is known for posting daily videos around Call of Duty, specifically the Zombies mode.

On November 11, a smaller gaming YouTuber, Suggestive Gaming, discovered that the Hutchinson had almost directly copied a video about the storyline behind Call of Duty Black Ops from his channel. He tweeted a clip comparing the two videos side-by-side, revealing that MrDalek had almost entirely copied the exact script.

Suggestive Gaming called out MrDalek on Twitter and said, “Dude, you literally stole my script and re-recorded it verbatim for your own video, then just copied my graphics style for the editing.

“You didn’t ask for permission, and gave me a credit far down in the description for writing ‘some of it.’ You even included ‘this is what you need to know’, which is the name of my series. EXTREMELY classless actions here.”

MrDalek has now issued an apology, saying “I let the team down with my recent actions,” and took full responsibility.

“I just wanted to take a moment to address the tweets circulating this evening about myself and another YouTuber. I had reached out privately to resolve the matter but it’s only fair that I publicly apologize to @suggestivegames.

“What I did was extremely wrong and of very poor judgment. We as a gaming community should be a team and I let the team down with my recent actions. I apologize profusely for what I have done. This made me re-evaluate the way I create content for my channel and it will not happen again.”

YouTuber Suggestive Gaming responded to MrDalek, adding, “Thank you for publicly acknowledging and apologizing for this. This type of behavior isn’t conducive for quality content to be produced and succeed on the platform. I ask that you, and your fan base, continue to hold you accountable, and you do better in the future.”

TikTok star Addison Rae might be making a shift from her viral dancing videos to an equally viral gaming trend, after publishing a cryptic tweet tagging some of Among Us’s biggest streamers.

Among Us has become one of the gaming world’s most popular titles, swiftly overtaking the likes of Fall Guys to dominate Twitch and YouTube, bringing with it a ton of the scene’s top personalities.

Pitting players against each other to weed out an impostor among them on a malfunctioning space station, the game requires stealth and excellent lying skills, providing a fun and unique challenge that has brought together a unique slew of gaming streamers to the scene’s forefront.

Names like ‘Corpse Husband’ have become massive entertainers seemingly overnight due to the game’s success, racking up millions of YouTube subscribers for his deep voice and humorous commentary — all without a face reveal.

Corpse Husband is a wildly popular YouTuber who skyrocketed to fame for his Among Us content, although he also narrates True Horror stories and creates music.

Similarly, creators like ‘Dream’ and ‘Quackity’ have also popped up on viewers’ radars, birthing a new generation of YouTube superstars — and it seems like one of TikTok’s biggest creators is looking to get in on the trend.

Addison Rae created a tweet on November 30 that appears to hint at a potential collaboration with Among Us legends. The post itself was simple: tagging Corpse Husband, Dream and Quackity, Rae merely wrote, “Hey.”

However, it seems that her “hey” has caused quite a commotion online, amping up speculation for a possible collaboration between TikTok royalty and gaming’s finest.

It looks like Quakity is all in for the potential collab, who replied to Rae’s post with a cheery, “Hiiii.”

Dream has also responded, merely writing, “Yes hello” — a reply that has since garnered more likes that Addison’s original post.

While it’s unclear if the group is actually getting together for a round of Among Us or not, the possibility is certainly tantalizing for fans, who are all in for this totally unexpected project that seems to have caught both viewers and the creators themselves by surprise.

We’ll just have to see how good Addison is at playing impostor — after all, her constant denial of dating Bryce Hall didn’t exactly have us convinced in the past.
