‘YouTube’s biggest philanthropist’ outed as a massive homophobe

MrBeast accused of being a massive homophobe

Fans have rushed to the defense of ‘YouTube’s biggest philanthropist’ after he was outed as a massive homophobe.

Jimmy, a 20-year-old who goes y the alias MrBeast, has 4.9 million subscribers.

Known for pulling pranks and stunts for his millions of viewers, he has given a lot of money away to random people.

He has donated more than $500,000 to everyone from Uber drivers, to waitresses, to random people in parking lots.

But now his very recent homophobia has come to light.

YouTube philanthropist’s homophobia exposed

In videos, he regularly uses gay as a derogative slur and hurls it as people or things he is attempting to attack.

‘Windows is gay,’ he tweeted in December 2015.

In 206, he responded to a tweet saying: ‘I don’t have a printer fag.’

And in 2017, he replied to another person on Twitter ‘[Shut The Fuck Up] fag’.

When he was approached by The Atlantic, Jimmy refused to apologize.

‘Just a dumb kid’

He said he was ‘just a dumb kid that makes YouTube videos’.

‘I’m not offensive toward anyone,’ he added. ‘I’m not offensive in the slightest bit in anything I do. I’m just going to ignore it. I don’t think anyone cares about this stuff.’

The YouTuber then cut the call short, hung up the phone, and then deleted all of his previous homophobic tweets.

Some fans disagreed with Jimmy.

‘Sorry dude but saying “STFU fag” is VERY offensive – WAY beyond “the slightest bit”,’ he said.

‘You can erase it from your account but everything on the net lasts forever!’

Others supported the YouTuber.

‘If Mr Beast is a homophobe for literally saying the words gay and fag on twitter then I must really fuckin hate gays,’ one tweeted.

Another said: ‘Hi, I am Bi… A lot of the people in the LGBT are tripping. Context matters! Say FAG as much as you want… As long as it’s not in a way of pushing hurt onto someone I don’t think anyone should care. PS Stay awesome man.’
