That was no different during his June 20 recording of the ‘Scuffed Podcast’, where members of his chat pointed out that his logo was being used elsewhere. While the streamer defended himself and stated that he owned the copyright for the image, he got a massive shock when he dove into a Google search.
While Trainwrecks tried to fight his corner and maintain that the logo was actually his, despite it being used on a health supplement, and viewers later found that it was copyright free clipart. “It’s clipart. Did you pay for this or just pull it off of something?” asked one member of the call.
“Yeah, I paid for it – I paid for someone to create this, do you think I’m good enough to pull this shit off?” the streamer fired back, still maintaining that he had the image copyrighted under his channel.
However, his passionate defense immediately crumbled as the other members of his call found the clipart link and begun laughing about the discovery. “Dude, you actually got scammed,” chimed in another voice as they held back laughter.
As he opened the link himself, the popular streamer couldn’t believe what he was seeing as he minimized himself and showed off the original image to his viewers.
After being asked who created the image for him, Trainwrecks responded: “The same person who made my original emotes made this for me, dude.” Yet, even those graphics were outed as not wholly original as another voiced pointed out that his SquadHey emote resembled the Curious George character.
However, he eventually saw the funny side of things as he smiled at his screen and everyone else continued laughing. “Dude, I paid him fucking $350, are you kidding me?” he added, before moving on.
While his chat may have mocked him for this pretty expensive misstep, Trainwrecks got some sort of help from his call with one member offering up their services for free in future.
Will he take them up on that opportunity? Who knows.
