Irish YouTuber makes top 10 on Forbes rich list

What an amazing achievement!


Forbes have released their annual YouTube rich list, and Irish YouTuber Jackscepticeye has made the Top 10.

The gamer, whose real name is Seán McLaughlin, has over 16 million subscribers – and Forbes has reported that he made a whopping $16 million from June 2017 to June 2018.

The site wrote: “Foulmouthed, energetic Seán McLoughlin is the most popular YouTuber in Ireland thanks to his colourful video-game commentary.”

“A few bad words haven’t kept him from going mainstream: He did a series for Disney and is developing exclusive content for live-streaming platform Twitch.”
