In a recent tweet, Jack ‘Joogsquad’ Tenney, the brother of Twith star Tfue, announced that YouTube contacted him and forced him to delete all of his videos off of his account, leaving his fans shocked and saddened by the news.

If you were a fan of content creator and YouTuber JoogSquad, then you’re probably going to be disappointed by this news.

The YouTuber, who’s real name is Jack Tenney, recently confirmed on Twitter that the video-sharing platform “gave him no choice” but to take down all of the videos on his channel, seemingly without warning. The JOOGSQUAD PPJT channel currently has 5.64 million subscribers, and visiting it currently greets viewers with a blank screen under the “Videos” section.

“This is the hardest decision I’ve ever had to made,” said Tenney in the tweet. “It saddens me deeply. But I really don’t have a choice.”

Tenney then followed up the tweet, stating that “YouTube is nothing without its creators” and then questioning “how can they not see that?”

There are a couple of interesting points to make about this situation; The first is that it seems like at least some of the videos have been unlisted, rather than fully deleted, so if you still have the link, it’s possible to find them.

The other thing that Tenney did mention in his tweet is that YouTube forced him to take down the videos on his channel down “temporarily,” so it’s possible that his uploads could be back sometime in the near future.

In addition to the possibility about when/if the videos will return, there’s also a bigger question looming around the whole situation. Without a confirmation or even a hint from Tenney, YouTube, or anyone else involved, no one really knows why the company asked him to temporarily remove his videos.

A few weeks back, Tenney and some other members of his channel got in trouble for changing the Hollywood sign near Los Angeles to read “Hollyboob,” resulting in him getting arrested for the act. It’s currently unknown whether or not that act has anything to do with this situation, although a video of the incident was posted to the channel.

Sway House member and social media star Josh Richards has partnered up with actor and producer Mark Wahlberg to kick off his very own Gen Z-centric media production company.

Josh Richards is no newbie when it comes to content creation and amassing a large audience; the social media star has garnered over 2.4 million subscribers on YouTube alone, scoring another 24 million followers on his primary platform, TikTok.

However, it seems that the personality behind the smartphone screen is transitioning to broader horizons after partnering with none other than actor Mark Wahlberg’s Unrealistic Ideas production company.

Together, these two giants are forming another media production company with a focus on Gen Z viewers. Dubbed CrossCheck studios, this company aims to “cater to Gen Z content creators across all sectors of entertainment” and is “focused on becoming the premier venue for internet-native creatives.”

Whether or not Richards’ production company will launch full-fledged movies and tv shows remains to be seen, but it has already “put together a full slate of material” and is even “actively scouting new projects.”

“This is a real passion project for me that I’m going to pour my heart and soul into,” Richards said of his new venture. “We’re going to have a lot of fun along the way and build something great together. I would like to thank Mark, Lev and Archie for believing in a 19-year-old from a small town in Ontario. Now, let’s get to work.”

“I am impressed with Josh and all of the things he’s already accomplished,” Wahlberg commented. “We are looking forward to being in business with him and joining forces with CrossCheck Studios.”

With the likes of Charli D’Amelio and her family scoring their very own reality show on Hulu and rumors of Addison Rae potentially creating a song with Nicki Minaj, Richards’ newest partnership marks yet another huge milestone for internet-based content creators moving into the mainstream limelight.

Exactly what kind of content Richards’ company will put out remains to be seen, but it’s certainly exciting to imagine young innovators taking the reigns for a new generation of media.
