John Scarce (born July 21, 1997), is a YouTuber who reports YouTube news and drama. He is currently the largest news reporting channel on Youtube once having over 3 million subscribers due to a glitch in the YouTube algorithm but has since dropped down to 2.8 million.

Scarce started his channel in early 2012 and was originally famous within the Call of Duty community for his trickshot videos but in mid-2013 began doing news commentaries, with a sizable fanbase. After a shout out from GradeAUnderA in early 2016, Scarce quickly rose in popularity.


John opened his channel in early 2012 (although his 1 million subscriber special dates his first video around December 2011) making Call of Duty gameplays. Scarce was in a great start when his second video he posted was celebrating 100 subs and the next one was celebrating 500. His first news video was in 2013 and was called "(IRL) SB Apparel Site & Former SoaR Ollie Tries to Hack SoaR – SB Scarce" Gaining more views than usual he kept doing those videos, every day gaining more attention. During one of many YouTube sub glitches, in early 2017, he gained over 3 million subscribers, dropping back to 2.8 following the fix.
