Who is McCreamy?

His real name is Jay and he set up his channel in September 2016. Two days later, he posted the first video. Since then, his channel has grown into the gaming juggernaut it is today. He has over two million subscribers and hundreds of millions of views in total. His popularity has transcended beyond YouTube and reached other social media platforms. He has hundreds of thousands of followers on both Instagram and Twitter. He also has a Twitch account. In 2018, McCreamy created the Fortnite clan xd. He has been called a cheater by a few gaming content creators. However, others have pointed out that it is simply how he edits his videos
Rise to Fame
McCreamy set up his YouTube channel on September 18, 2016, and uploaded the first video, ‘McCree Is Hard’, two days later. He found fame for his Overwatch comedic “let's plays.” He has also created comedic videos on Player Unknown Battlegrounds (PUBG). During this period, he was collaborating with several other gamers, some of whom are still his friends and work with him on various projects. In December 2017, he switched to playing Fortnite and quickly gained a reputation for his “insane” gameplays and snipes.
These days, each of his videos generally garners millions of views. Some of the most popular videos on his channel are ‘even my friends think I'm cheating lol...’, ‘you won't regret watching this fortnite video’, ‘10 minutes 41 seconds of Fortnite aimbot’, ‘she thought i was cheating...’, and ‘I got 70 kills in one game’.
In May 2018, he founded the Fortnite clan xd and recruited several of his friends, including Fitzy, Zuckles, TobyontheTele and hanieldarrison. The group prides themselves as Fortnite’s first ever trickshotting clan. They let anyone join them but predominantly accept exceptional players. The clan members put xd before their usernames, so they can be recognised as its members. It is quite popular among other streamers and gaming YouTubers, including Myth, Tfue, FaZe Rug, RiceGum, Lachlan, FaZe Jaomock and Dakotaz.
The oldest photograph on his Instagram was posted on August 29, 2018. It is presumably a selfie of McCreamy himself, with his face replaced with an ice cream cone with googly eyes, a clear reference to his username. In the next upload, he appears with a mask over his face. He had not done a face-reveal video yet, so most of his fans had no idea what he looked like in real life. On September 24, 2018, he posted a selfie with the “dog with glasses” Snapchat filter, formally revealing his face for the first time. Two days later, he uploaded a cover of A Great Big World’s ‘Say Something’, which he had recorded sometime in 2013. On 4 October, he shared a picture from his childhood. The accompanying caption reads, “I bet this little rat didn't think he'd be pwning noobs for a living #tbt”. McCreamy posted the picture of his wrist tattoo of “ASWD” keys on 26 November. On January 14, 2019, he celebrated reaching two million subscribers on YouTube by posting a picture of the live subscriber count.
