💥 MrBeast Sparks Twitter Debate

CREATOR ECONOMY NEWSLETTER


Jimmy Donaldson—aka YouTube stunt, tech, and philanthropy sensation MrBeast—is known for his scale, flashiness, and at times, controversy.

Back in February 2023, for example, Donaldson sparked debate after posting a video saying he “cured” 1,000 people of blindness. While some users accused Donaldson of “charity porn,” other loyal fans flocked to his defense.

Donaldson drew controversy once again on Friday after he tweeted a request to his followers asking them to fix up the displays of his Feastables candy product at Walmart stores. Passionfruit Contributor Patricia Grisafi breaks down the myriad of responses creators shared on Twitter—ranging from those impressed with this latest marketing ploy to those upset by how creators can take advantage of their fans’ loyalty.
