―Ian in his RiceGum diss track "Asian Jake Paul"
Ian Kane Carter (born on July 27, 1991YouTube username iDubbbzTV, is an American YouTuber known for his Kickstarter Crap and Content Cop videos, as well as those featuring fellow YouTubers TVFilthyFrank, Maxmoefoe, and Howtobasic.), known by his
iDubbbz created his channel on August 12, 2012. His first video, uploaded on August 30, 2012, is of him playing the Holiday levels of the game Overgrowth. Because like many YouTubers he started out gaming. IDubbbz continued to upload gaming videos on his channel until March 18, 2013, when he released his first “My name jeff” video, which was the origin of his Kickstarter Crap series. Although iDubbbz kept making gaming videos, his more popular series, Kickstarter Crap, and Bad Unboxing took a higher priority over these videos, as they slowly got uploaded at a higher rate. Nobody knows for sure, but it has been rumoured that he has a long lost younger brother, Blaize Osterhout.
Arguably iDubbbz's most successful series, Content Cop is aimed toward creators of various topics in which their content is "illegal" or "poorly created". The series had brought in over 100 million views combined and includes videos about large channels such as DramaAlert, LeafyIsHere, RiceGum, Fine Brothers, howtoPRANKitup, and Tana Mongeau.
Content Cop episodes begin with a sketch of iDubbbz wearing a cop costume as he pursues a suspect as the song "Otis McMusic" by Otis McDonald plays, eventually breaking down into a scuffle between the two, before we cut to iDubbbz sitting down in his studio to begin talking about the channel or channels in question, with no mention being made of the opening fight - even if the sketch ends with the Content Cop apparently being killed or, in one case, the suspect stealing his uniform and running away.While there are a lot of requests in the comments section for Content Cop videos for him to feature certain YouTubers, iDubbbz generally ignores these requests.
Tana Mongeau Drama
On December 10, 2016, fellow YouTuber Tana Mongeau tweeted at iDubbbz saying he should kill himself because he uses "the N-word" and the word "retard" frequently. Tana later deleted the tweet because one of her fans committed suicide.
On January 21, 2017, iDubbbz along with his girlfriend Anisa went to Tana Mongeau's fan meetup. Anisa was also recording on a camera, which was later used for the Content Cop episode on Tana Mongeau. iDubbbz decided to take a photo with Tana, but instead of saying "Say cheese!" he said "Say nigger!"; after that, iDubbbz was kicked out.
Tana made a video about the situation, titled "The N Word". She says nothing about iDubbbz in the video, just explains what happened with the meet and greet and her thoughts on how the word should be used. She described the incident with a few exaggerations, which were later pointed out in the Content Cop. After this controversy, people pointed out how Tana herself has also been recorded calling people the N-word herself.
On February 6, 2017, iDubbbz released a video titled “Content Cop – Tana Mongeau”, a part of his Content Cop series. In it, he defends his use of the word “nigger” and accuses Mongeau of hypocrisy by showing past clips of her uttering the word. He stated that his use of the word is not meant to offend as it is done in a comedic context, whilst he deemed Mongeau’s use of the word to be racist. In the video, Ian also shows footage from the incident at Mongeau's show and criticizes her response to it.
He also discusses the use of derogatory terms in a broader context, and the weight which society places on specific words in terms of their offensiveness. IDubbbz gained over 200,000 subcribers in three days at the height of the controversy. Overall, the Content Cop didnt have a major effect on Mongeau's channel overall, with her reaching 2.5 million subscribers in June 2017 and 250 million total channel views in August 2017.
A hacker known as "Lizard Squad" hacked YouTube on November 23, 2017, terminating iDubbbz. People thought this would be the end of YouTube until it was found out that a hacker had hacked YouTube and terminated multiple big channels such as DramaAlert , Papa Jake , Styxhexenhammer666 , Team Coco / Conan O'Brien , MrRepzion, and including iDubbbz. All channels were put back up within less than 24 hours.
