YouTube Stars Under Fire For 'Loot Box' Videos

YouTube *cough* influencers *cough* taking money to promote loot boxes to the masses...I AM SHOCKED! SHOCKED I TELL YOU! Ugh..can we just be rid of these people already?

Videos by Jake Paul and Brian "RiceGum" Le feature a company called Mystery Brand, which exchanges money for unidentified prizes. In a comment to the BBC, the site said its service is "not comparable to gambling". The UK Gambling Commission has said it is assessing Mystery Brand and "will be taking appropriate action."
