YouTube sensation MrBeast, known for his extravagant gifts and surprises, faced criticism earlier this year after tipping a waitress with a brand new car. The incident, where he presented the waitress with keys to a black Toyota Sedan, received mixed reactions, with some viewers questioning the gesture as a “driving advertisement” due to the branded car. MrBeast later responded to the backlash, revealing an unseen clip where the waitress decided to keep the logo despite initial concerns.

In March, Jimmy Donaldson, popularly known as MrBeast, surprised a waitress named Amy with a brand new car as a tip. The generous gesture, captured in a video posted on Instagram and TikTok, garnered attention and praise, but it also sparked controversy. Some viewers raised concerns over the car being branded, considering it a potential “driving advertisement.”

While many applauded MrBeast for his generosity, others on social media questioned the motive behind giving a branded car as a gift. Some comments suggested that the branded vehicle could serve as unintentional promotion. The criticism prompted MrBeast to respond by sharing an unseen clip from the day, where Amy initially expressed hesitation about removing the logo but later decided to keep it.

Addressing the criticism, MrBeast posted an additional clip showing the conversation between him and Amy. In the clip, he tells Amy that she can remove the logo if she wishes, but she responds positively, saying she finds it “kinda cool.” The video ends with Amy deciding to keep the logo. Mr. Beast assures viewers that they eventually removed the logo despite the initial decision to keep it.
