Another day, another Beauty YouTube drama
Manny MUA has been called out by smaller beauty YouTuber Jordan Byers. for allegedly pilfering her ideas.
On Monday, Manny shared a review of Rihanna's Fenty Beauty makeup range to YouTube. The video is entitled, "Fenty Beauty By Rihanna | Brutally Honest Review + Giveaway!" - Jordan, who runs a smaller beauty channel with around 300,000 subscribers, has claimed that "Brutally Honest Reviews" is a video series concept she developed, and she believes that Manny stole the idea without crediting her for it.
If we look back at the receipts, I am the first person to do brutally honest reviews," Jordan said in a recent YouTube video. "And now all these people are trying to steal my series," she added.
"It makes me sad because I'm a little YouTuber, and... these big famous YouTubers like Manny [MUA] come in and claim it as theirs."
Watch the video below:
While Manny hasn't explicitly responded to the accusations, he left a cryptic message on his Twitter page that appears to be linked.
For being a "beauty community, some people are so fucken [sic] messy," he wrote on Twitter. "That may include me at times," he added.

Of course, this isn't the first time Manny has been called out for allegedly copying ideas. In April he and Jeffree Star were sued by Black Star cosmetics for copying their packaging design - however the case was resolved outside of court.
