MRBEAST CHALLENGE WINNER SHUTS DOWN CLAIMS YOUTUBER ENDANGERED HIS MENTAL HEALTH

WHAT HAPPENED?

The winner of the MrBeast prison challenge has responded to claims that the YouTube star endangered his mental health by completely shutting them down.

In a video from April 9, MrBeast promised $10,000 for every day his participant stayed in the designated room.

Upon releasing the video, MrBeast was hit with backlash for “promoting solitary confinement,” which typically causes serious problems for prisoners such as psychosis, memory loss, and suicidal thoughts.

However, the participant himself known as Josh responded to the concerns – shutting them down completely. “I can assure you that they had people watching over me 24/7.”

“They made sure I wasn’t in any danger, physically or mentally, they had everything taken care of. It was a great opportunity for me to relax a little bit,” Josh said.
