―JT's classic intro
Jamie "JT" Tate (born: May 21, 2001YouTuber who primarily makes commentary videos. He also makes videos about other channels on YouTube and the platform itself. He has changed YouTube, terminated channels, and exposed some of the biggest YouTubers/companies.) is an English
JT primarily makes commentary videos talking about other YouTube channels that have to lead themselves to controversies, thus, JT makes videos about them. While commentating, he plays games, such as Fortnite, Minecraft, and now Call of Duty.
JT launched his YouTube channel on November 5, 2016, and uploaded his first video, exposing MrTop5 and Shadical at least two years later, on January 26, 2019. He then exposed various YouTubers and talked primarily about other YouTubers, too.
On August 22, 2019, JT discovered that PewDiePie's translators were promoting themselves through the translations, JT made a video about it putting light on the subject. Two days after the video was made, JT uploaded a video about the translators attacking him by throwing insults to him on the titles on videos from various YouTubers, including PewDiePie, Jacksepticeye and more. Four days later, YouTube refused to help JT and he uploaded a video about this situation. However, on September 2, 2019, JT got YouTube to change the translation feature by letting creators manually verify the translation in case if there is spam before publishing.
On August 4, 2019, JT had found a Turkish YouTuber called Enes Batur that copies videos from many YouTubers including PewDiePie, MrBeast, and more, he made a video about it going through some of his videos and showing what videos Enes was copying them from, they were mostly copied from MrBeast. Enes Batur copyright striked JT for allegedly using his video's sound, which JT purposefully did not. This had the attention of many smaller YouTubers and started to make videos about it. This controversy led to JT being almost terminated because of almost having 3 strikes. On the 15th of August 2019, YouTube has solved the problem and they removed the strikes from JT's, unfortunately, Enes Batur was not punished but instead, he was put into YouTube Rewind 2019 for being the most subscribed Turkish YouTuber.
On September 13, 2019, JT exposed MaximillianMus using Discord to organize kids to perform witchhunts and attempt to ban Twitch Streamers. He harassed Weest's girlfriend about her father who recently passed away and harassed Weest while knowingly being recorded.
On October 16, 2019, JT exposed T-Series, he uploaded a video saying T-Series sponsoring advertisements in illegal websites connected to view-bot services. JT was later banned from being able to gather info from that website.
On June 2, 2019, JT made a video on Morgz, a controversial YouTuber because his videos appeared to be exact copies of MrBeast’s own content, containing challenges such as “I Spent 24 Hours In Slime” and “I Put 100 Million Orbeez In My Mom’s Backyard,” etc. While Chandler was rather dubious about Morgan copycatting, MrBeast had a measured response to the situation. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” he wrote of the issue, appearing to take Morgan's stolen video ideas in stride. MrBeast went on to claim that it would be “hypocritical” of him to call out Morgan for using his video ideas, claiming that he gets inspiration from other YouTube channels as well.
On October 13, 2019, MrBeast stated that on October 25 there is going to be the largest YouTube collaboration of all time, with many creators replying to join the collaboration. when his fans began requesting him to plant 20 million trees to celebrate the milestone, and to help restore forests lost due to recent forest fires. JT donated $500 to help him which is equal to 500 trees, MrBeast then later commented on JT's video, saying "I LOVE YOU".
On April 25, 2020, JT made a video on Alinity, a Twitch Streamer. He exposed her for throwing her animals, giving her animals vodka and much more. Alinity was suspended from the site last month after an accidental nip slip while playing Just Dance, but she was unsuspended the day after. Some have suggested that this shows that Twitch's new nudity policy isn't working and that Twitch shows more leniency with Alinity.
Copyright Striking Keemstar
On September 15, 2020, JT copy-striked Keemstar's LeafyIsHere interview due to Keemstar using JT's thumbnail without crediting him. JT would respond in a video titled "The Reason I Striked Keemstar...", where he stated that it was due to the thumbnail being present throughout the whole video. This caused a backlash for several reasons:
- The thumbnail was simply a photoshopped image of LeafyisHere, a nuclear background and a text. None of which JT owned legally. Leafy never gave JT permission to use his face and JT doesn't own the text font either.
- Keemstar was just searching for images of LeafyIsHere on google images and that thumbnail popped up, so he proceeded to use it.
- Keemstar actually helped JT when JT was falsely copyright striked the year before, so this could make JT seem like a hypocrite and emotionally backstabbing Keemstar.
In an interview with Keemstar, Leafy said that he would be suing JT. JT eventually payed Keemstar $113.42 in damages, and apologized on September 17, 2020. He hasn't posted any videos since his apology video and he has been inactive on his Twitter and YouTube ever since.
