One of YouTube’s biggest stars, MrBeast, finds himself under the scrutiny of Andrew Tate. Known for orchestrating extravagant game-show challenges with massive cash prizes and philanthropic endeavours, MrBeast (born Jimmy Donaldson), with over 243 million subscribers on his main channel, is no stranger to the limelight. However, recent accusations by controversial and incredibly problematic figure Tate accuse the YouTuber of utilising his platform to advance transgender ideology, particularly through his continued support and featuring of Beast Gang member Kris Tyson.

Kris Tyson is a long-time friend of MrBeast who came out as transgender in 2023, undergoing a name change from ‘Chris’ to ‘Kris’ to better reflect her gender identity. As Tyson embarked on hormone replacement therapy (HRT), her journey sparked widespread discussion from bigots online, especially considering Tyson’s prior marriage to a woman and having a young son.

Tyson addressed the personal aspects of her transition on X (formerly Twitter), revealing that she had been separated from her spouse for over a year before making the announcement, emphasising her desire for privacy in personal matters.

Despite facing criticism for the perceived impact on her family, Tyson received unwavering support from MrBeast himself, who continued to feature her as a prominent character in his videos.

Meanwhile, self-proclaimed misogynist Tate, who’s currently facing serious charges of human trafficking, rape, and involvement in organised crime, appears to have redirected his attention to more pressing matters—such as concocting baseless conspiracy theories while accusing the YouTube star of being part of a “psyop” by supporting his trans friend and collaborator Kris Tyson.

During a podcast interview with journalist Matt Kim, shared on 28 February 2024, Tate accused MrBeast of allegedly using Tyson to promote transgenderism, particularly to the young and impressionable audience that follows the YouTube personality.

Tate asserted that MrBeast, Tyson, and what he labelled as “corporate sponsors” were involved in a “psyop” aimed at normalising transgender individuals, particularly among children. The term “psyops,” short for psychological operations, typically refers to military actions geared towards shaping attitudes or perceptions through methods like propaganda. Recently, this term has gained traction among right-wing conspiracy theorists who allege that the US government is actively promoting specific agendas.

Tate employed the term to assert that Tyson’s transition was in alignment with an agenda orchestrated by corporate sponsors who were purportedly “trying very hard to psyop the youth with.”

Tate went on to suggest that MrBeast’s choice to defend his friend was driven more by a fear of negative repercussions and potential damage to his channel’s success rather than a sincere dedication to supporting Tyson’s individual journey. “What is the probability that, of the four, or five, or six people, whoever makes this show, which is the largest and most famous show amongst children in the world, which has a whole bunch of corporate sponsorships, a whole bunch of money behind it that one of them decides to very publicly do something which adheres with an agenda they are trying very hard to psyop the youth with?” questioned the controversial figure. “And then the leader of this channel, MrWhatever, he very calmly and very cucked says ‘Yeah, it’s good, I support them’.”

Tate claims that anyone who perceives the entire situation as a “mere coincidence” is, frankly, the only “idiot” in the room—a title he seemingly comfortably holds, to be brutally honest…
