Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson is one of YouTube’s most popular content creators, known for his massive cash giveaways and insane challenges – but every celeb has their copycats, and some are more obvious than others.

With MrBeast boasting over 24 million subscribers, it comes as no surprise that the YouTuber sports a few copycats – the most prominent of which is British YouTuber “Morgz,” who has been called out for copying MrBeast’s videos several times.

In fact, a member of Donaldson’s crew pointed out the similarities between their content in a pointed Tweet in May, showing a screenshot of Morgz’s videos as compared to MrBeast’s.

While MrBeast later claimed that he had “nothing to do “ with the drama during a subsequent video, he later Tweeted about the apparent copying on September 13, writing, “My brother isn’t an actual YouTuber until Morgz copies one of his videos.”

This Tweet didn’t go unnoticed by Morgz, who lashed out in response to the post with another screenshot that appeared to accuse MrBeast of copying him, instead, writing, “Guess we ain’t gonna talk about this huh?”

However, MrBeast was, in fact, going to talk about it, giving a multi-numbered list that debunked Morgz’s claims for each video in the screenshot.

“1 – Your top video is a copy of my ‘Last to Leave’ series,” he wrote. “Point invalid. 2 – I was inspired by this VR guy. 3 – Nope, I still did it first. My original Tweet was a joke btw. I’ve been trying to be nice and not hop on the fuck Morgz train, I really don’t care for drama.”

Morgz then shot back with another Tweet, accusing MrBeast of “pushing a narrative” against him and copying another YouTuber’s VR video idea rather than being “inspired.”

“How come my top video is a ‘copy’ of your last to series, but your VR video is ‘inspired’?” he retorted. “Just cos you say you’re joking & you hate drama, doesn’t change anything. Just a way for you to push a narrative whilst still looking like a ‘good guy,’ even though You tweeted about me.”

While MrBeast has yet to reply to Morgz’s final Tweet on the subject, he isn’t alone in feeling copied by the YouTuber: both his crew and fellow YouTuber RiceGum have put Morgz on blast, with RiceGum calling Morgz’s content “cringey.”

Although MrBeast isn’t one to entertain drama, there’s no telling where his “feud” with Morgz will head next, with fans and critics alike awaiting further statements from the two.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
