Ian Carter (born: July 27, 1990YouTuber who is known for his Content Cop, Bad Unboxing, and Kickstarter Crap videos, as well as those featuring fellow YouTubers TVFilthyFrank, Maxmoefoe, HowToBasic and Anything4views.), better known online as iDubbbzTV, is an American
Ian created his channel on August 12, 2012. His first video, uploaded on August 30, 2012, was of him playing the Holiday levels of the game Overgrowth. Like many other YouTubers, he started out gaming. IDubbbz continued to upload gaming videos on his channel until March 18, 2013, when he released his first “Gaming News Crap” video, which was the origin of his Kickstarter Crap series. Although iDubbbz kept making gaming videos, his more popular series, Kickstarter Crap, and Bad Unboxing took a higher priority over these videos.
Arguably, iDubbbz's most successful series, Content Cop is aimed toward creators of various topics in which their content is highly questionable or poorly executed. The series had brought in over 250 million views combined for him.
Content Cop episodes begin with a sketch of iDubbbz wearing a cop costume as he pursues a suspect while the song Otis McMusic by Otis McDonald plays, eventually breaking down into a scuffle between the two. Then, the video cuts to iDubbbz sitting down in his studio before he begins talking about the channel or channels in question, with no mention being made of the opening fight - even if the sketch ends with the Content Cop apparently being killed or, in one case, the suspect stealing his uniform and running away.
While there are a lot of requests in the comments section for Content Cop videos for him to feature certain YouTubers, iDubbbz generally ignores these requests.

Tana Mongeau Drama
On December 10, 2016, YouTuber Tana Mongeau tweeted at iDubbbz, saying he should kill himself because he uses "the N-word" and the word "retard" frequently. Tana later deleted the tweet because one of her fans had recently committed suicide then.
On January 21, 2017, iDubbbz, along with his girlfriend Anisa, went to Tana Mongeau's fan meetup. Anisa was also recording on a camera, which was later used for the Content Cop episode on Tana Mongeau. iDubbbz decided to take a photo with Tana, but instead of saying "Say cheese!" he said, "Say n*gger!"; after that, iDubbbz was kicked out.
Tana made a video about the situation, titled "The N Word". She says nothing about iDubbbz in the video, just explains what happened at the meet and greet and her thoughts on how the word should be used. She described the incident with a few exaggerations, which were later pointed out in the Content Cop. After this controversy, people pointed out how Tana herself has also been recorded calling people by the N-word.
On February 6, 2017, iDubbbz released a Content Cop video on her, in which he defends his use of the word "n*gger" and accuses Mongeau of hypocrisy by showing past clips of her uttering the same word. He stated that his use of the word is not meant to offend others as it is done in a comedic context, whilst he deemed Mongeau’s use of the word to be racist. In the video, Ian also shows footage from the incident at Mongeau's show and criticizes her response to it. He also discusses the use of derogatory terms in a broader context, and the weight which society places on specific words in terms of their offensiveness.
iDubbbz gained over 200,000 subscribers in three days at the height of the controversy. However, the Content Cop didn't have a major effect on Mongeau's channel overall as she is still a popular YouTuber.
On November 23, 2017, a hacker known as "Lizard Squad" hacked onto YouTube and terminated the iDubbbz channel, as well as multiple other big channels including DramaAlert, Papa Jake, Styxhexenhammer666, Team Coco (Conan O'Brien), and MrRepzion. People thought this was the end of YouTube until YouTube itself got all forcefully terminated channels back up in less than 24 hours.
