Several rumors on less than reputable websites began cropping up online speculating that YouTuber MrBeast (real name: Jimmy Donaldson) died. There were even fake news clickbait stories indicating that he was shot to death
Then there was a tweet by the joke/meme account that gained traction that also reported MrBeast’s passing.
Is MrBeast really dead?
No, These rumors are completely false. He is often uploading photos and content to his social media, and he has even lately seemed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he talked over his charity work alongside Mark Rober.
And one of the Internet’s recurring games, for whatever reason, is to pretend that this or that public figure has died.
Whether or not such pretenses operate under the guise of earnestness, they cause certain key phrases to trend. As a result, those who track trending subjects – on Twitter, Google, TikTok, or elsewhere – come across false notions and, possibly, believe them to be true.
The current spate of rumors claiming that MrBeast (aka Jimmy Donaldson) has died appears to have originated on TikTok, with several Twitter users referencing conversations on the video-sharing platform.
Bizarrely, many of the sites reporting on rumors that the 24-year-old has passed cite social media posts from last year – not recent ones.
The last time such a death hoax gripped social media was in November 2021, when automated Twitter account Anything Bot tweeted that MrBeast had “sadly passed away.”
The man behind the MrBeast brand is Jimmy Donaldson. Although, he is 24 years old, and is from Greenville, North Carolina. He has been active on YouTube since 2011 when he was just 13 years of age.
