YouTube gives so much to the world.

From cooking tutorials to cosmetics reviews, the platform is a treasure trove of information. And lately, it's been supplying people with the all the reality content one can consume, especially as these vloggers grow in popularity.

But, as movie stars can attest, not all that glitters is gold. With their newfound fame, these content creators are finding that there is a lot more speculation swirling around their personal lives than ever before. However, not all of the rumors are of the gossip variety. Some of the loose lips around these vloggers have caused lawyers to become involved. 

Most recently, the Ace Family fell victim to the rumor mill, with Austin McBroom being accused of rape and bribery. He, of course, is working to clear his name and get justice for the alleged "extortion" he's confronted with, but with all the controversy people are questioning if the Ace Family will be able to bounce back.

But, as history has proven, these YouTube subscribers are fiercely loyal and stick with their content creators until the drama blows over. To see for yourself, check out some of YouTube's biggest scandals from over the years:
