Yo guys, it's Morgz...

―Morgz Intro

Morgan Hudson (Born: August 6, 2001 (2001-08-06) [age 17]), better known online as Morgz, is a British YouTube vlogger and gamer who does pranks, challenges, Fortnite and commentary videos.

Morgz used to be well known from FIFA until he moved on as a vlogger and has since gained huge success out of it. Infamous for his 3AM videos, he is often referred to as childish and over-exaggerated and his videos are mostly for the young viewership.

His mother, Jill Hudson, is a huge part of Morgz's channel, often being featured in a lot of his videos either as a guest or a prank 'victim'. Morgan also has a girlfriend, Kiera Bridget and an Ex-Girlfriend, Caitlin, who has been in a few of his videos, though Kiera has been in more.

History

Beginning

Morgz started off with gaming channel called "LegendaryGamersHD" (which he says in his "Fat Morgz" video). He would play Minecraft, Call of Duty, FIFA, and several more. He was then renamed to,"AngryGamerHD" by the time he reached around 100 subscribers, though later changing his name from AngryGamerHD to "MorgzGaming" after eventually reaching his 1,000 subscribers milestone, which was where the name 'Morgz' nickname came from.

Previous series'

During the MorgzGaming era, he had been doing an Outlast series (videos currently privated), a Shout Out Sunday series (also privated), and a few vlogs throughout that time period before mading a video about changing his name yet again. "MorgzGaming" then became "ItsMorgz", while continued to make FIFA, Outlast, Shout Out Sunday, and Call Of Duty content. He was also shouted out by multiple people in order help him gain subscribers.

At around 14,000 subscribers, he released his first set of merchandise. The main one was a, 'On the Diet Coke grind' design (Diet Coke is Morgz favorite drink), making a Diet Coke challenge competition after he announced it.

Morgz also did Gaming Setup videos. His second public Gaming Setup becomes his first video to reach 1 million views, his second most popular also being the previous Gaming Setup Morgz made the time he hit around 1,000 subscribers. Morgz announced his P.O Box where his fans can send fan mail, and has done a series of him opening fanmail. Morgz also did London Vlogs with 5 other YouTubers, Wills , TheBlueDan , Swarmzy , Skillzer , and Treeny, doing the Crossbar Challenge together at the Sidemen Pitch.

FIFA 16

At 40,000 subscribers, Morgz changed his name from ItsMorgz to simply just Morgz and got the verified badge a few days later. After that, Morgz uploaded more FIFA content than ever and gained a huge following. He went from 40,000 subscribers to 100,000 subscribers in only a month, and continued making FIFA videos until he got a viral FIFA video called, "FIFA 17!!!" that got 2 million views in its first few days increasing his subscriber count from 160,000 subscribers to 200,000 subscribers in a few days as well.

Pokemon GO

Ever since the release of 'Pokemon GO', Morgz has done an enormous amount of Pokemon GO videos. His most popular one was, "MY BEST POKEMON CATCH!!! - POKEMON GO! - SO MANY CP 1,000+ Pokemon! it has over 6 million views and was his most popular video in a week.

When Morgz hit 500,000 subscribers, he finally revealed his Mum, Jill Hudson, and has done multiple videos with her since, and now does videos with her almost all the time.

Vlogs

At around 700,000 subscribers, Morgz started doing challenges, DIY's, and vlogs, giving him a major boost and growth on his channel. He went from 700,000 subscribers to 1,400,000 subscribers in a few months. His most popular Vlog was 'I kept this a secret all my life... (Webbed Toes) ' which currently has 7 million views and was his most popular video for a while.

After the major growth, he then continued doing vlogs, challenges, and DIY's. Morgz also did multiple challenges when he took a trip to Cyprus, giving him another boost. He went from 1,800,000 subscribers to 2,200,000 subscribers in about a month.

Channel Struggle

After the success from DIY's, challenges and vlogs, Morgz channel was slowly growing, not getting a lot of views and often loses a chunk of subscribers after uploading a video. Morgz common view-count per video would be at least 200,000 views, but some do often get higher than that. Morgz was on a struggle the second half of 2017 before returning to the past trend 'Song Lyric Text' pranking, which got millions of views.

Fortnite & Rapid Growth

During Morgz's channel struggle, he changed up his content by creating, and currently creating, childish and exaggerating videos for kids to view on. Morgz played the popular franchise Fortnite in March, 2018 ranging challenges, regular gameplays or with his girlfriend Kiera Bridget. Morgz's most viewed video is "Kid Spends $500 on FORTNITE with Mom’s Credit Card... [MUST WATCH]" [1], where Morgz purchases the entire Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass, and his mother finds out Morgz used his mother's credit card. Morgz has also done multiple other challenges which proceeded rapid growth, such as Spin The Wheel, Strip Fortnite and recieving money after getting an elimination in Fortnite. Morgz now does real life scripted challenges alongside his family, Morgz Mum Jill, Kiera Bridget, Martin, Ryan (ItsHaber) and Morgz Dad Darren occasionally. Many of his challenges are not supported as previous videos due to lack of over-hyping, over-exaggerating and making the videos obviously fake. But these videos are intended for little kids as the videos are still most of the time supported as Morgz is still growing rapidly.

Controversy

Sexual Predator for Clickbait

Morgz has been exposed multiple times for misleading titles, clickbait, his Shout Out Sunday series that he used to run, and self-promotion in the comments when he was a small creator. In recent months he has, according to subscribers, been disappointing in his content, leading to a decrease in subscriptions per day. A YouTuber known as Kavos has exposed Morgz for making his Mum a 'sexual predator' for clickbait. The video he was referring to had a title called, "MY MUM HAD SEX WITH ME WHEN I WAS 12", which has since changed. Kavos's video even got it to be featured on DramaAlert, exposing Morgz and being good exposure to Kavos.

Morgz was also featured in a PewDiePie video, with Felix showing the video with the title of his Mum having "sex" with him at 12.

Over-Exaggerating Videos

Morgz has also been criticized by many other YouTubers such as Kavos, Pyrocynical, ImAllexx, MrBeast, and Keemstar for having bland and unoriginal content, using clickbait to gain views, and using manipulative tactics, all to seemingly artificially inflate his channel. In ImAllexx’s video about Morgz, he points out that Morgz is tipping a fake pizza delivery guy in his video “TIPPING PIZZA DELIVERY GUYS FOR EVERY KILL IN FORTNITE” and that even if Morgz was actually giving away money, he’d be able to make it back anyways, “with the f**king mid-roll ads he put in the damn video.”, also accusing Morgz of using some rather questionable means in order to gain views involving his girlfriend and his mom.

He had also been exposed by multiple YouTubers that his videos are not intended towards kids by showing the possibility of sex happening in a thumbnail, which doesn't happen in the video. The acting in Morgz's videos are extremely staged and extremely over-reacted.

Kodak wK

A YouTuber known as Kodak wK exposes multiple Morgz videos to show that Morgz videos are not realistic as unscripted challenges are.

Kodak shows multiple Morgz videos and explains that the title and thumbnails of these videos are used to manipulate Morgz 'young viewers' to click on the video. Multiple Morgz thumbnails Kodak shows is showing allegedly underaged sex (with Morgz girlfriend Kiera), which originally does not happen in the video itself, making Kiera look like a bad partner.

Kodak also exposes Morgz pranks he does on his mom. One video shows Morgz and Kiera on a bed under a blanket, and Morgz's mother walks in. It is originally a prank, but scripted. Kodak shows completely exposed cameras on Tripods when filming a prank, making it seem that the prank was staged.

Finally, Kodak exposes Morgz "I Set Myself in Jello for 24 Hours & It was a HUGE Mistake" and explains multiple things that can be obviously staged. As Morgz does enter the bath filled with Jello, and as the video goes on, Morgz claims to be freezing. Kodak responds and says his lips aren't blue, and is not shivering. Martin (Morgz Uncle) does not help Morgz when being in a life-risking situation, instead records the entire situation. And Morgz Mother was crying about a broken mop over Morgz in a life-risking situation. Martin eventually does "help" Morgz, but before helping, Martin was selfish about being called bald, making Martin himself look like a terrible human being. "Risking" Morgz's life for being called 'bald'.

Copying Viral Video Ideas

YouTuber MrBeast was aware of Morgan copycatting Jimmy (MrBeast) thanks to a Tweet from Chandler Hallow, an affiliate for Jimmy, who uploaded a screenshot comparing Morgz's videos to MrBeast.[2]

Morgan’s videos appeared to 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.

However, other YouTubers weren’t as nonplussed by Morgz’s videos, with the likes of FaZe Banks calling MrBeast’s response “too nice.” 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.

Morgz Mum Termination

Morgz' Mother runs her own YouTube channel, which was terminated on August 17, 2018 for harassment and bullying. Multiple YouTubers who had been against Morgz did not agree to his mother's channel termination. It was announced all over Morgz and Kiera Bridget's medias (other than YouTube). The Morgz Mum channel was terminated for 10 hours before and later got reinstated the same day, and had gained a huge following afterwards.

Family

Morgan's mother, Jill Hudson, has been in a variety of his videos, featured in almost every recent video currently. Jill has her own YouTube channel called "Morgz Mum". She also has a Twitter @BigJillHudson.

Morgz's dad, Darren Hudson, and stepdad, Martin, have also been in a few of Morg's videos. Darren does not run a YouTube channel just yet, but has a Twitter @BigDarrenHudson. Martin does not own a Twitter or YouTube either, but is very present in Morgz's videos.
