Typically when one person gives another person a car as a gift it’s seen as an unquestionably lovely thing. In the case of one famous YouTuber that’s not always the case. There’s a lot to unpack and we’re interested to see if you think he’s in the wrong or not.
Mr. Beast is one of the world’s most famous online personalities and he’s mostly known for extravagant giveaways. In this particular case, he tips a waitress an entire car, a Toyota Corolla, after she serves his table. Unsurprisingly, she seems incredibly blown away and grateful at the gesture.
Sadly, that’s not where the story ends though because, in this particular instance, the car in question features a wrap (possibly a paint job) emblazoned with Mr. Beasts chocolate bar company logo and branding. That has not sat well with citizens of the interwebs. “So basically she has to do promotion for his company by driving the car,” one person tweeted.
That was far from the most vitriolic comment. “Your insurance and taxes are about to be wild,” wrote another. Others said that he decorated the car “like a 12-year-old fan’s laptop”.
It’s also not the only time Mr. Beast, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, has been in hot water over a giveaway of one sort or another. Recently he paid for 1,000 people to have sight-restoring cataract surgery. Despite the objective good that came about through that effort some decried it as “charity porn.”

Last year, Donaldson gave away some $3.2 million dollars along with a private jet and a private island according to videos posted on YouTube. There, he has some 139 million followers.
Certainly, it’s understandable for some to question the sincerity of someone who films their good deeds. Others argue though that it’s precisely because of the filming of these good deeds that Donaldson can afford to commit to them. Which side is right? Was Mr. Beast wrong for gifting a car covered in his own brand? Let us know what you think below.
