MrBeast published a Tweet on January 25, urging his fans to peep the upcoming Super Bowl – which could hint at his previous plan to create a Super Bowl commercial advocating for PewDiePie, in light of his ongoing battle against Bollywood label T-Series.
“Make sure you guys watch the Super Bowl,” MrBeast wrote, going on to delete the Tweet shortly thereafter.
MrBeast’s deleted Tweet could have confirmed an upcoming commercial for PewDiePie at the 2019 Super Bowl.
MrBeast likewise commented on an episode of Drama Alert that could provide further hints at the actual content of his possible commercial, claiming that it will be similar to Jake Paul’s recent ad for popular Twitch streamer Ninja.
“Jake’s video was literally my video on [a] low budget lol,” MrBeast commented.
Jake Paul’s super bowl initiative is markedly similar to that of MrBeast’s, who commented on the issue in an episode of Drama Alert.
MrBeast raised the possibility of a Super Bowl ad during his video saying ‘PewDiePie’ 100,000 times, alongside a probable trip to India to advertise for PewDiePie’s success over T-Series. However, a local Indian YouTuber has already accomplished this feat – even asking passersby to quote lyrics from ‘Bitch Lasagna.’
With the US elections just around the corner, everyone – including famous TikTokers – is gearing up to cast a vote that will change the shape of the country’s future. However, Bryce Hall was on the receiving end of criticism after a leaked conversation seemed to confirm that he was voting for third party candidate, Brock Pierce.
This time, fans were upset after leaked messages appeared to confirm that Hall was not only endorsing third candidate Brock Pierce, but was also planning on voting for him.
Quick to dispel these rumors alongside fan suspicion over his reason for visiting Wyoming, Hall posted a Tweet explaining that the only reason he was to use his influence for good: namely, by “encourag[ing] the youth to get involved in the political process”.
im in wyoming to encourage the youth to get involved in the political process and to see a state ive never been to. i was making a joke with an acquaintance, he decided to be an asshole and share it. the only person I endorse for president is mamma hall. take that to the bank
Referring to the leaked messages, where he seems to confirm he’s voting for Pierce, Hall claims that he was merely “making a joke with an acquaintance,” who then “decided to be an a**hole and share it”.
“The only person I endorse for president is Mamma Hall. Take that to the bank,” he quipped.
However, not all fans were satisfied with his response, with one Twitter user arguing that voting for a third candidate isn’t something to joke about.
The fan said: “The thing is this isn’t something to joke about though? As a black supporter, it’s frustrating because advocating for a third party is advocating for someone who wants to take away my basic human rights so no Bryce I’m not laughing.”
the thing is this isnt something to joke about tho? as a black supporter its frustrating because advocating for a third party is advocating for someone who wants to take away my basic human right so no bryce im not laughing
Other fans, however, showed support for Hall, with one Twitter user saying: “What I’m understanding here is that Bryce here isn’t allowed to support who he believes in, am I getting that right?”
Why did fans think Hall was endorsing Brock Pierce?
Fans initially became suspicious when Hall posed for a selfie outside Pierce’s presidential campaign van.
Fans weren’t happy to see Hall posing outside a Brock Pierce van.
Soon after, entrepreneur Mahbod Moghadam leaked a conversation he has with Hall about Pierce where, after discussing Hall’s upcoming interview with the candidate for his podcast, he told Moghadam that Pierce “was an interesting guy” who “had my vote.”
Hall seems to confirm that he is voting for Brock Pierce.
Brock Pierce later shared the exchange on his Instagram story.
Many fans resulted with outrage at this apparent endorsement, with many of them accusing Hall of using his platform irresponsibly. One fan said: “Must be nice to have the privilege of not caring who to endorse in this election and influencing your followers to vote for a third party.”
