MrBeast’s content always has “The X factor” that makes it very viral all the time. Henceforth, it would be impossible if others wouldn’t take inspiration from his ideas and create content. However, it is obvious that Jimmy got annoyed when the content seems plagiarized.

Jimmy recently called out popular Russian YouTube channel A4, led by Vladislav Bumaga for stealing his videos and blatantly copying them.
