YouTube giant Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has lashed out at Morgan ‘Morgz’ Hudson, over allegations he has been stealing content ideas from Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson.

There has been something of a feud emerging between Morgz and Mr Beast of late, as the latter accused the British YouTuber of stealing his content ideas back in April. Morgz tweeted that he was in a “bit of a pickle” and “out of video ideas”.

In response, Mr Beast hit back by saying: “Don’t worry, I’m about to start uploading more soon.” The implication being that Morgz will simply use Mr Beast’s video ideas for his own channel. Now, PewDiePie has given his thoughts on the situation in a YouTube video uploaded on May 26.

“Oooh, damn!” PewDiePie exclaimed. “Is that real? That’s savage. I gotta find out if that’s real. Is it real?” He headed over to Mr Beast’s Twitter where he found the tweets from April 1, and went on to evaluate the situation more closely.

“So apparently Morgz has been copying his videos way back,” he said. “I didn’t know this was a thing, I just briefly touched on it in one video. I’m like ‘dude is he just copying?’ and I didn’t look into it but apparently it’s a whole thing. It’s like the whole new drama.”

He went on to compare the drama to the Tati Westbrook and James Charles drama, and the feud between Tfue and FaZe Clan, arguing that Mr Beast versus Morgz is new YouTube scandal.

The video revisits the drama after a May 20 tweet from Morgz asked: “What 24 hour challenge should I do next?” One Twitter user savagely replied with: “Why don’t you ask mrBEAST”.

“Like obviously this is blatantly ripping off [Mr Beast],” said PewDiePie, while scrolling through Morgz’ channel. 

“But at the same time there’s always a thin line between these things, that I think a lot of people look way too much into.” PewDiePie then explained that he doesn’t want to promote any “toxic behaviour” and that people should be “free to make any video they want”.

He also analyzed a meme that jokes if Mr Beast planted 20,000,000 trees, Morgz would do the same, and the planet would be better off for it, hence the name of his video.
