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.

Pokimane slams Fedmyster’s second OfflineTV document: “Who asked?”

⁠Former Offline TV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan has released yet another lengthy Google Doc regarding the accusations of misconduct against him from OTV streamers, claiming he wants to “move on” from the drama.

Fedmyster was released from OTV in June 2020, after streamers LilyPichu, Yvonne and Pokimane levied accusations of harassment and inappropriate conduct against him.

Following these accusations, it seemed that all was resolved, with Fed having been removed from the group as a result; but a Google Doc seemingly leaked from the disgraced streamer in late November, which set off a chain reaction of outrage across the internet.

In the leaked November document, Fed appeared to accuse Pokimane of not being honest about their relationship to her viewers, and included screenshots of private text messages between them.

While Pokimane went on to respond to this document, saying he’d admitted his guilt, Fedmyster released yet another lengthy statement on December 1, claiming that he had actually never intended to release the original Doc. Instead, he explained that it had actually been a “form of therapy for myself, to address my concerns about the way Poki portrayed me in her stream.”

Fedmyster also purported that a formerly-trusted member of his community had leaked the document, leading to a “violent breach of my trust and against my wishes as I’ve been working hard to grow, heal, and move on from everything.”

The leaked document of Fedmyster’s in November had been titled “My Truth,” and mostly centered around his relationship with Pokimane.

The former streamer likewise addressed allegations that he had attempted to get Yvonne fired from the group due to her accusations against him. Denying that he had ever wanted her kicked from the crew, he claims that his concerns were due to her “lack of excitement and willingness to help with OfflineTV projects when it’s the only reason she’s in the house.”

He included several other explanations regarding his text messages with Pokimane, as well as his portrayal of Jodi toward Poki, who he apologized for, “painting her to Imane in such a poor light.”

Fedmyster ended his document by claiming that he wants “to move on and start a new chapter in my life,” hoping to put the issue to rest once and for all.

Pokimane has since responded to the document with a scathing tweet, writing, “Who asked lol.”

Fedmyster’s long document has been met with similar reactions from readers online, marking yet another episode of an ongoing incident between some of Twitch’s top content creators.
