YouTube stars The ACE Family have been accused of stealing footage from a small-time YouTuber to promote their upcoming event, Ace Fest.
The ACE family began selling tickets for their upcoming event, Ace Fest, back on April 9th.
Since then, broadcaster stars Austin McBroom and Catherine Paiz have been accused of falsifying statistics on the number of tickets they sold after the couple claimed the event was completely sold out.
Now the pair are being called out on social media over claims they stole footage to also promote Ace Fest.
