However, his colossal income has earned him several complaints in the United States. Indeed, many have denounced the presence of secret advertising in the videos of the highest-paid YouTuber in the world. Moreover, an investigation was opened for inappropriate sponsorship and marketing, given its young audience. In fact, around 9% of Ryan’s videos include at least one paid product recommendation. What his parents denied.
