A YouTuber, Kurzgesagt, is accusing Tyrese of stealing their videos and uploading them to his own Facebook page without permission. Something that YouTubers have been dealing with for a while when it comes to celebs.
The YouTuber says Tyrese took one of the videos, and uploaded it, and it was viewed 89 million times. Views that could have gone to the YouTuber who has a monetized account. The issue with using people’s content without permission is that it means the original content creator won’t receive exposure or the associated ad revenue they would have generated had those views occurred on YouTube.
The YouTube account says Gibson is not the only one who does this. “A whole group of people have built their online presence around stealing other people’s work,” Kurzgesagt writes.
According to Business Insider, this is the first time someone has accused Tyrese of stealing their videos. But like stated above, if you go to any random celebrity’s page, you’ll notice various YouTube videos that don’t belong to them being uploaded and viewed.
