Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has explained why he won’t be replacing the destroyed PC of a child who was tricked by an impersonator.

The streamer, known on the site as rogue07, was playing and broadcasting Fortnite from his $1,200 PC, when a Twitch user appeared in his chat pretending to be Donaldson.

The account claimed that if the child destroyed his PC, they would send him a brand new computer worth $5,000. Rogue07, believing this to be Mr Beast, proceeded to destroy his computer in a bathtub, before finding out that the Twitch user was a hoax account.

Since then, many have wondered if the YouTuber would offer to replace the PC for the child, as Mr Beast is well known for his generosity. This will not be the case, as Donaldson released a statement to Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem explaining that he wouldn’t be able to buy the child a new PC, and why couldn’t do it.

“I feel bad about it,” wrote Mr Beast. “But unfortunately I don’t want to replace it and start a trend of people breaking things in hope of me fixing it.”

“If Twitch would simply verify me, this would all be fixed. I’ve gotten hundreds of millions of views from donating to people on their platform, so it makes no sense not to.”

Mr Beast sent a statement to KEEMSTAR.

For the YouTuber, publically replacing the child’s computer may put him in a difficult situation, as some may attempt to take advantage of his giving spirit to profit off of him, and could also paint him in a bad light to some fans if another viewer fell for this trick and Mr Beast declined to fix it.

While Mr Beast will not be replacing the destroyed PC, the streamer’s mother posted on Twitter to confirm that she would be “fixing the situation.”

TikTok stars Thomas Petrou and Bryce Hall have sparked quite the feud after Hall accused Petrou — co-founder of the Hype House — of stealing money from his own content creators.

It’s no secret that the Hype House and the Sway House aren’t on friendly terms, with the two getting into a fierce beef throughout this past year (remember that time the Sway boys drove to the Hype House to confront Chase Hudson?).

While Hall has confirmed that their feud with the Hype House is definitely real, it seems that he’s going “full send” on his distaste for the group by accusing co-founder Thomas Petrou of outright stealing money from the HH’s content creators.

During an interview with Tom Ward on October 8, Hall made some serious claims about Petrou’s business practices, stating that he’d “stolen” money from the TikTokers working underneath the content collective.

“I’ll say it — he steals money,” Hall stated. “He steals money from those kids. These kids are — I love a lot of people in the Hype House, but they are not the smartest people. …maybe not now, because I haven’t talked to them in four or five months, and maybe somebody said something to him, but he, at the beginning, was stealing money for sure.”

Hall’s claims didn’t go unnoticed; Petrou responded to the accusations shortly thereafter, denying having ever stolen money from those in the Hype House in a pointed Instagram reply on a tea page.

“That’s a complete lie,” he wrote. “I’ve never taken a percentage of anyone in the Hype House. Ask everyone who’s a part of it. The whole reason I started this was to help the people around me make sure they weren’t getting taken advantage of by their managers and agents.”

Thomas Petrou denies Bryce Hall's allegations of stealing money from Hype House creators.

This isn’t the first time Hall has struck out at Petrou in recent days, either; the Sway House TikToker also slammed Thomas’s spending habits, claiming that he “spends his money like an idiot” on pricey cars instead of saving up wisely.

For now, it doesn’t look like there’s any love lost between these two social media stars as things continue to escalate between two of TikTok’s biggest creators.
