Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul has been accused of stealing from smaller creators, as Tweeted out by streamer ‘thatdenverguy’ on November 17.

According to ‘thatdenverguy,’ Jake Paul had used footage of one of his Fortnite streams for his ‘The Girlfriend Fortnite Distraction Challenge Pt. 2’ video seven months prior.

However, the allegations don’t end there; Paul allegedly went on to copyright claim thedenverguy for exposing the stolen footage during a subsequent video.

“That is me, dude,” thatdenverguy said of the debacle in the offending video, pointing out his Fortnite account name in the top left hand corner of the footage. “Look – ‘thatdenverguyYT,’ this is me.”

Screenshots of the copyright claim shared by thedenverguy show that the claimant had reported the video for one particular scene,  where denver was dropping down into the map with an umbrella glider.

An investigation by YouTuber ‘Spill’ confirms that the same username can, indeed, be found in Paul’s own video, further proving that he – or someone on his production team – had pilfered the footage.

Spill went on to explain that Paul may have wanted to use that specific footage for a skit, as evidenced by further incriminating footage of the YouTube star.

Despite Paul only claiming a minute-long segment from denver’s three-hour-long video, Paul receives all ad revenue from the entire upload – and denver is unlikely to dispute the claim, as doing so could result in the ultimate deletion of the video in question, or even his entire channel, should he get hit with three copyright strikes.

Popular Twitch streamer HAchubby was stunned when she met a Twitch fan in one of her IRL streams, only for him to reveal himself as her “number one VIP” and a known member of her community.

HAchubby is a streamer who has shot up in popularity for her IRL streams, with a steadily growing fanbase over 230,000 followers on Twitch. She is Korean, but films most of her content in English as she’s documenting her learning process.

The streamer is constantly finding herself in random and hilarious situations, and her entertaining reactions make her followers love her even more.

Earlier in October, she had a beautiful piano solo in a music store interrupted when “U Guessed It” by OG Maco started blasting through the speakers with perfect timing, leaving HAchubby in stitches. This is just a standard day on her stream at this point.

The Korean has experienced a popularity boom over the last year.

She has several super loyal fans who make frequent appearances online whenever she streams, but the last thing she expected was for one of her biggest fans to find her in real life, while she was streaming no less.

As a fan walked up to her while she was streaming in Germany, she greeted him warmly with “hello hello! What’s your name.” The fan took a short pause before he replied “I am BFG.”

She paused for a moment, then laughed in disbelief. “What? Sorry? Sorry?” she repeated, completely baffled by the unexpected meeting.

He even gets out his phone to show her his account, and sure enough, it was really him, sending the chat into a frenzy. People even started sending gifts to greet the known community member.

HAchubby introduces him to those who don’t as her “number one VIP” and fans were so excited that someone even sent over $100 via the stream.
