WillNE vs Morgz Mum

Will chose to make an advertisement on YouTube and Twitter featuring people like Stephen Tries, ImAllexx, and other friends and subscribers.
He explained how he mapped out the whole idea in the video I Bought Ads For My YouTube Channel to fight back and overtake Morgz Mum again, which introduced the movement #Sub2WillNE. Many of his subscribers joined in by making posters, buying billboards, printing out Will’s flyer and posting them everywhere and many other things to get people to subscribe to his channel.
And in the next TWOTI video, he explained Jill wasn’t pleased and decided to throw darts at a picture of his face, among other things, to mock Will. Will then retaliated to this by saying they – he and the subs – “cannot lose to a middle-aged woman from Sheffield, UK”. Further, in the TWOTI video Belle Delphine Responds To My Video, Will said Jill had responded. Also in the TWOTI before that, he, in the company of Alex, spent 2,500 pounds on Delphine’s Patreon. He wasn’t interested in her “NSFW” pictures but donated to gain more publicity against Jill again. They video chatted and discussed strategies on how to do this.
Delphine responded to Will’s £2,500 donation, which Will later showed to Alex and George; she [Delphine] said Morgz’ Mum needed to be stopped, shot a doll with Jill’s face on it several times with an AK-47 displayed in the background. She then threw the doll down a flight of stairs, thus showing she was “on Will’s side” in the battle against Morgz Mum.
