Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is known for his shocking acts of charity – but one of his projects is leaving small-time Twitch streamers speechless.

While MrBeast has a penchant for donating generous amounts of money to Twitch streamers, his latest donation video sought to help broadcasters with a grand total of 0 viewers.

MrBeast had a whopping $100,000 to give out, and divvied up the amount in $5,000 – 10,000 increments between a slew of smaller Twitch streamers – who had a wide range of incredible reactions to his donations.

One streamer, who was broadcasting himself sleeping, initially thought that MrBeast had donated $10.00 instead of $10,000, and even appeared not to believe that his donation was real at all.

“Is that funny?” the streamer asked, after MrBeast jokingly suggested that he could have “burned” the cash, instead. “Thanks for the $10,000. Let’s do a collab or something.”

MrBeast, YouTubeMrBeast is known for his incredible acts of charity, and has donated mass amounts to small Twitch streamers, waitresses, and the homeless in his YouTube videos.

MrBeast even turned the video up a notch by challenging streamers to get a kill in their games to receive an additional donation.

“That is not real,” one streamer said in shock when presented with the task. “MrBeast, are you serious?”

A few streamers even broke out into tears at MrBeast’s generosity, with a few livestreaming his store after being asked to purchase his merchandise using a special discount code.

Although MrBeast has created many of these videos in the past, popular YouTuber and family vlogger Roman Atwood revealed his own initiative to help smaller streamers the day prior.

Atwood’s initiative takes $2 from each sale of his graphic ‘glitch’ Smile More T-shirts and donates the revenue to small-time Twitch streamers – which resulted in an emotional reaction from 15-year-old Fortnite streamer Joseph ‘JTReview,’ as shown during his video on the subject.


Heartbroken gamers react to PS5 destroyed with industrial shredder

A viral clip showing a PlayStation 5 getting minced by an industrial shredder is garnering a ton of reactions among the gaming community who were horrified to watch the prized console getting absolutely destroyed.

It’s been nearly a month since the PS5 was released and it hasn’t gotten any easier to find the console available from brick-and-mortar stores to online marketplaces. The reality is millions of gamers won’t be able to touch Sony’s next-gen console until well after the holiday season is over.

That could explain why some in the community are a bit touchy seeing the hardware being put through a meat grinder, so to speak.

YouTube channel ‘Captain Crunch Experiments’ specializes in putting objects through the high-powered shredder, and it was the PS5’s turn to show us what it’s made of.

The outcome was as you’d expect. The plastic panels of the PS5 were easily devoured into bits, though the full body of the machine took a bit more convincing to get it through to the other end.

As Sony’s metallic behemoth put on one of the most heartbreaking ASMRs to date, the viewers were mixed. Some were impressed that the console put up such a fight, but nearly all PlayStation fans were reeling by the time the video closed.

“What exactly happens here?” one person wrote, before listing out the sins from the production. “Here’s what: Destroying currently out of stock PS5, throwing away rare non-renewable materials, wasting all the electricity that went into producing those PS5s => unnecessary pollution, and producing shit quality unsatisfying videos.”

“This is satisfying but pains me at the same time lol,” another wrote on the YouTube post.

“You need actual help lots of kids want the PS5 For Christmas and you buy one and just shred it like why though a child is now missing out on his PS5 for Christmas that’s because you bought it and shredded it,” someone else said of the clip.

We saw a similar outcry when The Mob’s Classify pranked Froste by slamming a brand new PS5 console to the ground and finishing the job with a sledgehammer.

Gamers will all feel that disturbing knot in the pit of their stomachs watching the video, and the sentiment around the PS5’s destruction won’t ease up until there’s vastly more stock for eager customers.
