Elon Musk defended Jimmy Donaldson aka ‘MrBeast’ after the YouTube celebrity faced criticism for his recent charity video in which he handed over hearing facilities to 1000 deaf individuals.
MrBeast, who has dominated YouTube in recent years with his increasingly bizarre films, allows his followers and friends to appear in them and compete for huge cash and prizes.
With the creation of his charity, Beast Philanthropy, which makes use of the revenue generated by his other YouTube channels in order to be able to assist others, he has been increasingly focusing on the philanthropic element of his films.

However, the YouTuber recently faced backlash for some of the charity-focused videos he created, with some suggesting it’s not true charity if he’s making it so public even though he’s supporting some genuinely deserving charities.
The thumbnail for the YouTuber’s most recent philanthropic video, in which he aids 1,000 deaf individuals with access to hearing machines, drew criticism.
One critic questioned, “This is nice and all, but why does Mr. Beast’s thumbnail editor feel the need to have his hand clutching a child’s shoulder as he grins ominously behind them?”
Elon Musk intervened to protect the YouTube celebrity when the criticism became more prevalent. The Twitter owner tweeted, “It’s unquestionably inappropriate to criticize somebody for doing good. Is restoring hearing truly merely a matter of money?”
He added, “I’m always looking for ways to donate money that are actually good. Perhaps this is one. It is tough to donate money if you are doing actual good, not merely the appearance of it.”
In the midst of the attacks, the YouTuber’s supporters intervened and stood up for him and claim that the claims are unfounded.
