At the beginning of his YouTube career, iDubbbz built his audience base through a series of Let's Play-style walkthroughs and video game commentaries, before shifting his focus to more in-depth commentaries on social media trends and analysis of YouTube's vlogging subculture with the launch of Kickstarter Crap in March 2013, followed by the premiere of Content Cop in December 2015.

Anisa Jomhas OnlyFans

In March 2020, iDubbbz's wife Anisa Jomha launched her OnlyFans account, claiming iDubbbz was "very supportive" of it in a tweet. The decision resulted in criticism not only aimed at Jomha but at iDubbbz, with many calling him a cuck and a simp. Others also began to hypothesize that Jomha was changing iDubbbz and "pacifying him" for the worse. iDubbbz posted a video responding to the backlash on March 28th, 2020, defending Jomha and sex workers in general (shown below).

Getting Away With It & iDubbbz vs. Sam Hyde

Creator Clash

On October 29th, 2021, YouTuber[13] iDubbbz posted a video titled "You're hiding from me…" where he reveals that RiceGum who he has had a public feud with for years, was set to box him in an event that iDubbbz was setting up after talks. Originally, RiceGum wanted Keemstar to set up the event but iDubbbz refused to let that happen. In the video, iDubbbz explains that RiceGum wanted a million dollars to fight but iDubbbz refused, saying he wants the money from the event to go to charity. RiceGum backed out of the fight, with iDubbbz's video acting as a last effort to convince him to fight, gaining over 3.4 million views in six months (shown below). He also offered Keemstar the fight, who refused. He ends the video by asking viewers who they'd want to see him fight instead of RiceGum.

On March 25th, 2022, iDubbbz posted a video to YouTube[14] officially announcing the event and his opponent, an influencer named Dr. Mike.

Removal of Froggy Fresh from Creator Clash 2

Leading up to Creator Clash 2, Froggy Fresh, who was meant to fight in the competition against Chris Ray Gun, was removed from the event. This resulted in significant backlash against iDubbbz and Jomha, the co-founder of the event, increasing the spread of the idea that Jomha had "ruined" iDubbbz by changing his views. People also criticized him for suggesting they could take legal action against Froggy Fresh.

Following the fight, iDubbbz posted a video explaining that Froggy Fresh was removed for training with and posting content with Sam Hyde leading up to the fight, while also insulting iDubbbz's wife numerous times online, something Hyde was also doing (shown below).

2023 Apology Video, Unlisting Content Cop

On May 18th, 2023, iDubbbz posted a video apologizing for his past "hurtful" content to YouTube,[17] specifically apologizing for saying and normalizing the n-word in his content, saying "it's either all okay or none of it is okay" in relation to saying the N-word and specifically apologizing to Tana Mongeau for the Content Cop he made about her.

Feud with Leafy

On September 12th, 2016, iDubbbz released an episode of Content Cop in which he roasts the popular YouTube vlogger Leafy for having a "weak chin" complex, speculating that Leafy seems to be trying to hide the lower end of his face when posing for photographs (shown below). Within 48 hours, the video gathered upwards of 4.9 million views and 120,000 comments. In the following days, Leafy began to lose his subscribers en mass at a rapid rate, presumably as a result of iDubbbz' Content Cop episode. Eventually, iDubbbz tweeted a message chastising his subscribers for unsubscribing from Leafy's channel using the hashtag #WeLoveYouCalvin.

Feud with Tana Mongeau

While iDubbbz didn't publicly acknowledge her criticism, he responded by staging an elaborate stunt wherein he traveled to San Francisco to attend a VIP meet-and-greet event with Mongeau, during which he approached the celebrity vlogger for a photograph and blurted out "say ni**er!" (shown below, left). iDubbbz was promptly kicked out of the event. The prank was also recorded on camera by his girlfriend and fellow vlogger Raihnbowkidz), which was eventually posted to iDubbbz's secondary channel in early February (shown below, right).[9][10]

On January 24th, 2017, Mongeau, unaware of the identity of the prankster, recounted her unpleasant encounter with a mysterious intruder at her event in a video titled "The N Word" (shown below). Within 24 hours, the video racked up more than 1.2 million views. Meanwhile, some of her fans began sleuthing online in order to identify the agent provocateur, which ultimately resulted in the exposure of iDubbbz's involvement.

However, the tide of the feud took an unexpected and drastic turn later that same day, when a video clip of Mongeau aggressively yelling the phrase "you fucking ni**er" surfaced on YouTube. The video has since been removed. On January 26th, YouTube personality Philip DeFranco uploaded a video to share his thoughts on the controversy (shown below, right). On January 27th, Redditor Filterg submitted a post chronicling several times Mongeau had used the slur in the past to /r/idubbbz.[3]

On February 6th, iDubbbz released a new Content Cop episode criticizing Mongeau's video for exaggerating their encounter in San Francisco, as well as her use of the same racial slur in the past (shown below, left). Within 24 hours, the video gained over 3.5 million views and 158,000 comments. The same day, Redditor AsianWithGlasses submitted the Content Cop video to /r/videos,[4] where it gained over 174,000 votes (66% upvoted) and 7,100 comments within 24 hours.

In response to the revelations about her own past, Mongeau tweeted that she had "made a lot of mistakes" and "an apology will be coming soon" (shown below).

I find it funny that whenever a content creator "grows up" and "matures" or otherwise "evolves" it's literally always for the worse. And while they usually keep finding financial success they destroy the quality of their content and their reputation for anyone in the loop. Off the top of my head, there's Egoraptor and H3H3, and now Idubbbz.

I always thought the word "evolve" came with the implicit meaning that whatever is evolving becomes better. Guess not. Guys like Joji evolved, Idubbbz decayed
