YouTuber Leaves The Internet Divided And Some Claim He Promotes Eating Disorders

A recent video from the famous YouTuber MrBeast is about a challenge where he doesn’t eat for 14 days. After being in the spotlight for his unique and ready-made content, the YouTuber has managed to make headlines again. This time, however, the popular YouTube video has divided the internet.

although MrBeast declares that he took on this challenge to fight Crohn’s disease, a few internet users don’t seem to be thrilled with the idea of ​​starving for 14 days. This has flooded Twitter with opinions of some liking the video, while some bashing it and talking about boycotting it.

But throughout the video, MrBeast has repeatedly warned the public not to repeat or copy; he also talked about how fasting helps with his Crohn’s disease. He shared the video and pinned his own commentary to his video, stating:

“Obviously, as I have stated several times in the video, this should not be attempted at home without medical supervision as I had. Also, for more context, I have Crohn’s disease (actually my gut has a lot of inflammation) and I wanted to give it a break from food to see if that would help reduce inflammation, because Crohn’s sucks. I’ve learned a lot about how to use fasting to reduce my inflammation and I’m glad I took on this challenge.”


MrBeast’s fasting video sparks a stir on Twitter: YouTuber says doctors accompanied him through challenge

While some talk about how the YouTuber is not responsible for the triggers, others pointed out how such videos should be banned. One Twitter user tweeted:

“Edtwt can we be honest… mrbeast is not responsible for our triggers and he didn’t exactly show off fasting or red..”

Edtwt can we be honest… mrbeast is not responsible for our triggers and he didn’t exactly show off fasting or red..

@tanachanner @leRhanalt there is no problem, but if someone has an ed, the video can motivate them to fast for so long. nothing wrong with mister beast it’s the person’s responsibility just not to watch the video but it’s also fine to have a discussion about it

TW // ED talks, you guys act like mister the beast is responsible for people with eating disorders, he never told other people to stop eating for 30 days, he did it for himself, and if that kind of content triggers you, why are you watching to it?

tw ed // -_as someone who has had an ed before and has also studied Crohn’s disease for over a year, I understand that Mr. Beast has no weird intentions with his video, the title and thumbnail is a bit misleading, but with the context i think is fine . take it as you want

@PogChampion300 I really don’t see how that’s Mr. Beast is if you watch the video and develop and ED. just my opinion

On the other hand, others had a different opinion. A follower took to Twitter and said:

“I’ve always been a big fan of Mr Beast but his most recent YouTube video is just disgusting. EDs are very serious and it’s so triggering to turn ‘starvation’ into a challenge to opinions on a platform with lots of young children or adults struggling with EDs. Do better.”

Have always been a huge fan of Mr Beast but his most recent YouTube video is just disgusting. EDs are very serious and it’s so triggering to turn “starvation” into a challenge to opinions on a platform with a lot of young children or adults struggling with EDs. Do it better.

//ed discussion/implicationno bc imagine a fucking 10-year-old who thinks she’s “overweight” goes to watch the new mr beast video and sees their favorite creator efficiently lost weight by starving herself. that my friends, is why his new video sucks.

hey you guys don’t watch the new mr beast video if you have or have suffered from/with an ed. he consistently checks his weight every day and it’s just hhhhhh pretty triggering

@poxeled I’m just commenting on the video from the perspective of someone who has friends with EDs and food issues myself. Such content can be harmful for people to see whether he meant it that way or not. I don’t really have an opinion about Mr. Beast as a person. /nm

tw// ed @MrBeast what did you think?? haven’t you thought about the young and impressionable people who watch your videos? about the mentally ill and already struggling people who might internalize your video and do the same? your videos have an impact, be wise

// tw ed mentioned to anyone watching the new mr beast video please be careful and don’t watch if you are suffering, recovering or have recovered from an ED. it can get really triggering as the video progresses and it would hurt to see someone bothered by it.

Speaking of the video, the YouTuber initially had the goal of starving and fasting for 30 days. At the beginning of the video, he says he weighs 220 pounds. He also mentions that he had a team of doctors who made sure he did well during this challenge. He also challenges the group by telling them that if he breaks the challenge, they may shave his head as punishment, which eventually happens because he was unable to fast for 30 days.

The video managed to get more than 20 million views in less than 24 hours. It also had 1.6 million likes and millions of comments. This is not the first time MrBeast went public and did something extreme – people loved his idea of ​​creating a huge Willy Wonka chocolate factory.
