MrBeast also posts content on TikTok and one of his most recent videos has triggered a backlash.
During the clip in question, the YouTuber enters a nondescript restaurant while being accompanied by a cameraman.
He asks his server – named Amy – what is the biggest tip she has ever received, and she responds: “Like $50.”
MrBeast replies, asking: “Has anyone ever tipped a car?”
To her surprise, the YouTuber then hands her a set of keys which belong to a black Toyota Corolla which is parked outside.
The vehicle is covered in the logo of his chocolate brand Feastables. While the vlogger’s YouTube channel logo is printed on the hood.
Inside the car, MrBeast’s chocolate bar also is sitting in the cupholder.
“I was literally late to work today because the Uber was slow,” Amy tells the YouTuber in the clip.
“I’m in such shock right now. I don’t even know how to drive.”

Many people are saying that although it’s amazing the server got a brand new car, they’re unimpressed that it’s covered in branding promoting MrBeast.
“Bro MrBeast, ain’t nobody driving no Feastable car,” one viewer comments.
Another person jokes: “‘Aw thanks’… straight to the paint shop.”
While a third says: “Bro gave someone a car that markets and advertises his bars and made a video out of it.”
“First order of business… remove the wrap,” comments another viewer.

However, are others taking to the comments and praising MrBeast for his ‘selflessness’.
One person pens: “All that matter is she likes it. She got it for free and honestly, that’s kind of a cool story to tell despite the logos.”
“The selflessness is REAL,” another adds. “Thank you for doing this for so many.”
Somebody else comments: “This guy just out here putting faith in humanity.”
“Man, gotta keep him protected at all costs,” a fourth says. “This dude is amazing.”
