Jimmy “Mr Beast” Donaldson is one of YouTube’s top content creators, best known for giving out huge amounts of cash in his videos — but it seems like his reputation has kept him from receiving a massive gift himself.

Mr Beast is hailed across the net as one of social media’s biggest philanthropists, having given away money at “free banks” and even opening a free car dealership for families in need of transportation.

With over 31.9 million subscribers on YouTube, it comes as little surprise that Donaldson boasts a massive fanbase — but fame isn’t all sunshine and roses, as he revealed during a collaborative video with artist “ZHC.”

Mr Beast is one of YouTube’s top stars, known for his insane challenges and huge cash giveaways.

ZHC, who has historically gifted Mr Beast and other YouTube stars such custom items as phone cases, art prints, and shoes, turned things up a notch by customizing a Tesla with Donaldson’s tiger logo.

After driving the vehicle to Mr Beast’s home state, the YouTuber sadly revealed that he couldn’t actually keep the car, admitting that past home invasions are keeping him cautious of anything that would give away his identity.

ZHC gifted Mr Beast with an impressive custom Tesla, complete with his own logo on the side.

“I’ve had people break into my house before, and so that would give away where I live,” he explained to ZHC, instead opting to gift the Tesla to one of his friends.

“My house has been broken into before, and I have a lot of stalkers,” he continued. “So I obviously can’t drive a car like this. People will follow me.”

Therefore, he conducted a match of rock, paper scissors between partners Chris and Chandler, with the winner getting to keep the vehicle, with Chris ultimately emerging the victor.

Mr Beast isn’t the only online superstar who has fallen victim to stalkers: Twitch streamer “Sweet Anita” revealed that a stalker had moved to her city, and even slept outside of her home, claiming that he was later released by police in spite of his disturbing advances.

Even YouTube king PewDiePie has dealt with such issues, notably begging fans to stop visiting his house and even getting robbed in 2019, losing “90%” of his and his wife’s valuables from their home in Japan.

In spite of their massive success online, being famous isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, with Mr Beast’s case being one of many experienced by content creators the world over.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
