One of YouTube’s biggest stars, Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson, teamed up with NFL quarterback Cam Newton to break multiple footballing world records. 

MrBeast has grown rapidly on YouTube and is now one of the most subscribed-to in the world, entertaining fans through a variety of creative videos and challenges.

On September 3, the American and his crew starred in a video with NFL player Cam Newton, where they managed to crush multiple world records.

The team met at the Carolina Panthers Football stadium and quickly got underway in their attempt to break three world records. The first record seemed to be the toughest of the three, as MrBeast and crew had to catch a football between their legs from at least 35 yards away.

This record proved brutal as the catcher was covered in bruises from multiple attempts, but they eventually managed it after a string of incredibly close tries. The team screamed in joy as a throw finally connected, setting a new record at 39 yards.

Record two was an incredibly tricky one – catching an American football while blinded and in motion. This is something that would require an incredibly accurate throw, luckily for MrBeast, he had just the man.

Cam quickly got used to the distance and the speed of the moving target, and inched closer to a perfect throw by the minute, until he finally hit the target and one of MrBeast’s crew held onto the ball while blindfolded.

Again, the whole crew erupted in celebration, as they broke the previous record of 22.3 yards with an impressive 24 yards.

The final record saw the two parties switch roles, this time MrBeast’s crew was throwing and the NFL star was doing the catching. This record was a time challenge – the most one-handed catches in under 60 seconds.

It was an incredibly hectic one, as they had to complete over 48 one-handed passes in less than a minute. This would test both the catcher and the thrower, and one mistake could cost them everything.

After an intense minute, even the judicator had lost count of the number of catches and had to view the recording to make a verdict.

Everyone held their breath as the judicator announced his findings. A few catches were invalid, but the record was still broken with 51 catches, leading to an astonishing hat-trick of world records.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
