Massively popular YouTube personality MrBeast provided life-changing wells to poor people in Africa. However, MrBeast now fears being canceled for his good deeds.
MrBeast, whose real name is James Stephen “Jimmy” Donaldson, was attacked for his recent viral video.
The YouTube philanthropist constructed 100 wells to “help 300-500K+ people across Cameroon, Kenya, Somalia, Uganda, and Zimbabwe over their lifetime.”
MrBeast noted, “Around 2 billion people around the world do not have access to clean and safe drinking water.”
“That’s about 25% of the entire planet! Clean wells can range from just a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands depending on the scope and needs of the local community but can provide almost unlimited drinking water to people very quickly,” the YouTube personality claimed.
Following blowback on social media, MrBeast acknowledged that he could be “canceled” for his actions of helping people without any reciprocation.
On Saturday, MrBeast wrote on the X social media platform, “I already know I’m gonna get canceled because I uploaded a video helping people, and to be 100% clear, I don’t care. I’m always going to use my channel to help people and try to inspire my audience to do the same.”
Donaldson continued, “Together we have the resources to help make a major dent in this issue and make sure families, kids, and communities have fresh water to drink, clean their homes and clothes, cook their food, and sustain their farms and livestock.”
The video went viral and has notched nearly 50 million views within 24 hours after being shared on YouTube,
