YouTube’s favorite young philanthropist Mr Beast has announced that he has secured a warehouse for a brand new YouTube channel where 100% of the proceeds from ad revenue, merch, and brand deals will go to charity.

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has made waves in theYouTube world with his large scale and often ridiculously high budget videos, each racking up view counts in the tens of millions.

While his content is very lighthearted, focusing on giving back to his online community with enormous prizes such as the likes of houses or Lamborghinis, he is also a keen giver to charity.

The 22-year-old has used money gained from his huge internet presence to make crazy videos like giving $100,000 to a homeless man, presents to children’s hospitals, and a whopping $1 million worth of food to food banks.

While it would seem that Jimmy has already gone more than the extra mile for people in need, he isn’t planning on stopping anytime soon, and has announced plans for his biggest charity project to date.

In an October 14 tweet, Mr Beast announced his newest project, saying he “finally worked out all the legal stuff and now we are securing/up fitting a warehouse for the food bank!”

He revealed that the warehouse is for a brand new YouTube channel where all proceeds are put towards charitable causes such as his food bank. “I’m dying to start up the new channel where 100% of all ad rev, merch, and brand deals will go towards running the food bank! I want to see how big we can grow this.”

What might seem like an impossibly big project for many is certainly not to Jimmy, as we have seen in the past with his incredible dedication to Team Trees, where he united with his fan base to raise the money to plant 20 million trees in order to help the environment.

There’s no doubt that this brand new channel will be a success, and fans are eagerly awaiting the new project to see ways in which they are able to help the YouTube mogul use his popularity for good.

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
