YouTube celebrities, commonly referred to as YouTubers, are a class of Internet celebrity and videographers who have gained popularity from their videos on the video-sharing platform YouTube.

The popularity of Roblox has led to some YouTube celebrities focusing their channel on it, and today many of them have become well-known content creators both in the Roblox community and on YouTube itself.

Criticism

Clickbait

There are many clickbait [1] YouTube celebrities that spread false rumours and scam younger Robloxians. An example would be the John Doe March 18 rumour, spread very fast by "clickbait" YouTube celebrities such as Tofuu.

It is common for these clickbait YouTube celebrities to make videos that often have titles and thumbnails that allude to something that is not in the video. These people earn a lot of money from this practice, Kazok making up to $89.8K yearly, with Dragod earning over $100K yearly. Some of the more common clickbait practices were ones related to events such as Ready Player One after less and less people began falling for hacking rumours.

Xonnek

Despite the downfall of many Roblox clickbait channels, Xonnek, who became popular after Spanish speakers flooded popular games around 2015-2016, has seemingly "revived" the clickbait trend in Spanish-speaking Roblox circles. Xonnek has also been called out for stealing thumbnails and titles, translating them into Spanish while sending fans to dislike bomb criticism videos, taking advantage of their non-fluency in English so that they can't understand the "content theft" and "clickbait" sides of Xonnek. To counter this, several discussion and rant YouTube celebrities have translated their videos regarding Xonnek into Spanish. Despite Xonnek being terminated in September 2018, various other foreign YouTube celebrities have used similar strategies to him (that is, stealing content and translating it for young and monolingual audiences) when it comes to content "creation".

Rant

On the other hand, other 'rant' YouTube celebrities like Roblox Minigunner have also received criticism for other rumours. One was the "Roblox doesn't ban ODers because they buy Robux rumour". This rumour has not been proven or disproven. However, online dating is against the rules of Roblox.[2] The 'reports not working' rumour has also not been proven or disproven, though some have created 'experiments' to attempt to prove or disprove the rumour.

Some of these have unfavourable members of their fanbases, raiding Discord servers belonging to Roblox admins, spamming things on the forums, and generally being a nuisance to players. Some of these YouTubers also advertise a free Robux website which is against the Roblox TOS.

Other

There are many controversial YouTube celebrities that are controversial for other reasons, such as InquisitorMaster. InquisitorMaster has been criticised for 'online dating' in her videos and for scamming RAP on Roblox. Some YouTubers such as DanTDM and Denis have been met with some criticism for their hand in helping lower quality games become more popular.

ROBLOX Star Creators Program

The ROBLOX Star Creators Program, also shortened as RSCP, is an official ROBLOX group founded on June 15, 2018. The Group was created to grant ROBLOX YouTubers free lifetime OBC, an exclusive hat and a leaderboard icon. This caused outrage from the ROBLOX community as the group was considered Elitism as it was considered unfair, gives lifetime Builders Club to its members despite it being removed August 4, 2015, and excluding non-kid-friendly YouTubers. The group also included YouTubers that are deemed by the community as Clickbait and/or Scammers.
